If it isn’t already evident – we love Squarespace!
But we’ve always had clients ask if Squarespace’s blogging feature is comparable to what WordPress and Blogger have built in the past decade or so.
After all, Squarespace has gained popularity amongst commonfolk only recently thanks to its minimalistic themes and ease of use. But how does it fare with the other features that it offers, especially its blogging platform?
We say it’s doing pretty well!
And here are some reasons why you should start blogging on Squarespace too:
As soon as you sign up for a Squarespace package, the blog is automatically included. This built-in feature means that you don’t have to worry about purchasing additional hosting or worrying about plugging in another domain for it.
Squarespace’s drag and drop blogging platform is super easy to use. We love its extremely clean interface and straight-forward tools. There’s no need for extra coding. Once you learn how to do it yourself, it’ll be easy as ABC!
Aside from making it really easy for bloggers to type or copy/paste their text, it also allows the addition of many other features into each blog post. While other blogging platforms might limit you to images, quotations and playing around with colour and size only, Squarespace allows you to include buttons and even newsletter forms into your blog post to help you engage with your readers.
Squarespace allows you to customise URLs that are keyword specific for each blog post. On top of that, you can even add excerpts to help search engines find your blog posts easily.
Unlike platforms like WordPress, Squarespace doesn’t rely on additional plug-ins to help you with SEO. It’s advisable to do your keyword research well and write posts that offer your readers quality and comprehensive content.
The Squarespace platform isn’t only sophisticated, but it’s also highly customisable. You can choose different templates and themes for your entire site, plus you can also style your blog posts in any way you want.
Options like style settings allow you to change the font types, sizes and colours while layout settings can make your images appear where you want them to be, and even display your blog posts according to your preferences.
