The next installment for blog organization this month is organizing your ideas. Has this ever happened to you? It’s 3AM and you’re in the middle of getting some good sleep. Suddenly you wake up and have an awesome idea for a blog post. You have no paper or pen next to the bed and you don’t want to save the idea to your phone because it will just get lost in the shuffle of your other notes. You end up falling back asleep but never wrote the idea down, then the next day when you try to remember it...no such luck.
Getting a great idea at the most inopportune time is a pretty common thing. It’s not enough to just jot it down on paper (papers get lost with the other papers of ideas that you’ve already written and have scattered around the house), you need to keep your thoughts organized in the quickest way possible. Today I will be discussing a way to keep track of those middle of the night thoughts and random blog post ideas and even keep them all organized together quickly. Read More
Squarespace is one of the top website platforms out right now because there is so much that you can do without knowing a lick of code to get it done. My website is built on the Squarespace platform and it was the best decision I made to switch over (read more about my experience with Squarespace here). One of the best features is that you can create a cover page (aka landing page). People use cover pages for different purposes such as sales pages, email list opt-in pages, thank you pages, etc. The problem with cover pages in Squarespace is that you are limited to the type of content that you can add to it. For example, you can’t place buttons where you want them (they can only be on certain locations of the page) and you can only include a limited number of links. Sometimes you just need a blank page to work with so that you can build your cover page using all of the options available when clicking an insert point. The problem is if you create a new page, all of your page links, header and footer contents will appear as well as any announcement bars that you may have set. The purpose of a cover page is so that the reader doesn’t get distracted and stray away from what you’re trying to get them to sign up for, purchase or learn. Today I am going to give you three simple pieces of code that will help you create a landing page free from all of the default header and footer distractions and how to remove an announcement bar from that page on your Squarespace website.
