Long time, no post! Yes, sorry for the delay in posts the past month “or so”! I have lots of really good excuses that I’ll keep short but sweet.
- We moved to the opposite side of the campground where wi-fi is non-existent.
- There is a national shortage on my ADD meds. Not to mention, about a 400% increase in price.
- It’s like I have one of those real jobs. Volunteering 20 hours a week does not lend itself to wanting to go home and stretch my brain any further. I don’t know how some of you work 40 hours AND have a blog!
- Due to #1 and #2, I have been “learning” how to knit. Look here, to see my abysmal attempts.
- I have three teenagers…that I homeschool…need I say more.
It looks like I won’t be back to regular posting until we leave our volunteer gig at the end of the month (Feb. 27). So, until I can get back on a regular schedule, I’ll provide you with some other squarespace websites and resources that have helped me out.
Content, Structure, & Style
Content, Structure & Style is a podcast all about Squarespace. Friends of Squarespace Alan Houser, Brandon Davenport and Josh Braaten discuss tips & tricks, strategies & client stories from Squarespace conquests in this (mostly) bi-weekly podcast.
The CS&S team also have their own websites that deserve a look as well. (The next three mentions on this list)
Josh Braaten – Big Picture Web
If you have any questions about Squarespace and SEO, Josh probably has an answer. He also has great tutorials on other aspects of Squarespace and social media integration.
Alan Houser – Squareflair
As one of the guys part of the Content, Structure, and Style team and professional Squarespace designer, Alan will keep you updated on the latest and greatest Squarespace additions and upgrades.
Brandon Davenport – Okay Geek
Not so much a site or blog about squarespace. But it’s a great model for all the cool stuff you can accomplish using the squarespace platform.
Nick Scola – SquareTuts
A great young squarespace designer, Nick has fresh tips and tutorials for making your site pop! You can read more about Nick in an earlier post, Resource of the Week: SquareTuts

Squaremods.com gives Squarespace users step-by-step instructions in implementing custom modifications to their site. It is our desire and purpose to help you take your site to the next level as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Although Vuela Design has not been updated in ages (as far as I can tell anyways), there is still some valuable information to be learned. Some of it may be a bit out of date so be sure to do some research before implementing.
Bite 47 specializes in Squarespace Design and Developement but they also offer a separate journal/blog exclusive to helpful tips and tutorials for Squarespace. Check out my post on Bite 47 here.
Holly Ezell – Squarespace Plugins
Err, well, I figure I should at least get an honorable mention on this list. Just in case someone decides to scrape this post
These are the sites that come to mind. I’m sure I’ve missed a few so please let me know in the comments if there are any sites I should add to the list. Along with the official Squarespace sites (see a list in this post), I feature all the blog feeds on one page at http://outlet.squarespaceplugins.com/ . This way I can see if anyone has any new posts without going to each site first. As an alternative, you can also subscribe to their blog feeds with Google reader.
Before I end this post, I just want to thank those who have left such nice comments and others who have emailed me with their questions and appreciation for the website. I’m truly humbled that you would take the time to lend me your feedback and trust that I would have the knowledge to offer insights to your squarespace questions.
