Merlin’s Squarespace 6 Blog

​Some videos and commentary on rebuilding my site from scratch with Squarespace 6. Start your own Squarespace 6 site today, and follow along.

Q: What would you like to see here?

Back to Work patron and all-around handsome man, Ryan Stansky, enjoying a rare and well-earned moment of “Li’l Ryan Time.”

Hiya, nerds. Merlin here. I hope you’re digging these screencasts on creating my new site with Squarespace 6.

There are two up so far (“Quick Intro” and “Content Collections”) which I hope have been useful in introducing this series and in helping explain a little about how to get started and play along with me.

There are several more coming, including a few I hope to have up in the next day or so. Namely:

  • The Basics of Using Blocks
  • Designing with Blocks via the Page Builder
  • Building a Tricked-out “About Me” Page

I hope these will all be fun and handy in helping you get the most of Squarespace 6, but, I’d really love to know what you would like to see here. So:

Got any requests for me?

Have you seen anything that interests you that you want to know more about? Was anything horribly confusing (where I probably talked way too fast or what-have-you)? Heard about a feature you'd like to see in action?

I’ve flipped on Disqus commenting below, so, if the spirit moves you, give me an idea what you’re looking for. Also, if you have a question or a gentlemanly comment to offer, drop that in too. I’ll read ’em all, and will be happy and honored to answer or address as many of them as time allows.

And—let it never go without saying—I really encourage you to sign up for your own Squarespace 6 account so you can try all this stuff out with me. New accounts get a 14-day free trial, and when you’re ready to pop for a full account, you’ll get an extra 10% off any purchase by using the special Back to Work offer code, “soold”.[1]

Dan and I are really grateful to Squarespace (and, especially, to Li’l Ryan) for sponsoring Back to Work, as well as for underwriting this whole series. And, yes yes, thanks also to all of you blessed nerds and jackals for checking us out and for supporting our program. I mean, it's your show.

  1. N.B. That “soold” offer code will work through Friday, August 31st; after September 1, we’ll hopefully have a new one for you. Update. September offer code: "dingus".  ↩
