The complete guide to blogging on Squarespace

One of the pre-assumptions of Squarespace is that Squarespace is not ideal for blogging. I’ve heard that a lot. And everyone thinks Wordpress is the go to solution for blogging.

I have blogged on Wordpress and I have designed a few wordpress blogs and now I am personally blogging for two blogs on Squarespace and have designed many blogs on Squarespace. And I love blogging on Squarespace. I don’t find it restricting and can highly recommend it. Especially when you are looking for an easy solution where everything is taken care for you. With Squarespace you don’t have to worry about updates and backups and if you have a problem you can contact their great customer service team.

So in this post I want to show you how you can write your blog with Squarespace.

How to use Summary Blocks for your Squarespace Website

How to use Summary Blocks for your Squarespace Website

One of the myths about Squarespace is that Squarespace is not good for blogging. That is definitely not true. You can use Squarespace perfectly fine for blogging. I think this misconception is partly because many people don’t know about summary blocks and don’t know how to automatically display recent blog posts or specific categories of blog posts on different pages so they shy away from blogging on their Squarespace website.

To sum it up, Squarespace summary blocks can be used for blog pages and also for product pages to display a predefined selection of blog posts or products in a specific page and place on your website.

 In this blog post I wrote about how to use the summary blocks and what I use them for.

It also includes a video tutorial on how to use them.
