Today's Lofty Goal

Let's start building a website using Squarespace!

 

At the beginning of my talk, (a DIY Web Lab at ConvergeSouth 2015) I affirmed: One cannot build a website in the amount of time available to us in this session. Completely impossible. But that shouldn't stop us from trying! So we jumped in to see how far we would get in the process.

As a follow-up, I offered to consider - and have been asked to definitely consider, pretty-please - creating a screen-capture video that proceeds through the full (super-simple) website build, just to show Squarespace newbies how it's done. I'm probably going to do that. More here when there's more to report.

 
 

Hot Topics

Here are some of the most important featured topics. The Squarespace training resources are magnificent... and there are a lot of them. I've learned that it can be helpful for someone just getting started to have access to a more narrow list of materials. This is in no way a comprehensive list. In fact, up to the time I began my presentation, I scribbled notes about other topics I should surely mention, if not actually go over. Though the time available in the live presentation was limited, I'm likely to expand the list below to include a few additional points, as I create the more ideal watch-and-learn presentation to be uploaded at a future date.

 

Even without a video with which you can follow along and learn, the list of links I've put together for you (from the vast storehouse of resources Squarespace offers) will be helpful as you get started with your first exploration of Squarespace. Enjoy!
