Check out My New Home on Squarespace V6

Months ago, I received a coveted email invite to try out Squarespace version 6, in the beta stage. Already a loyal fan of Squarespace, I was swooning even though there were limited beta templates up and not all functions were working yet. I tinkered along created a few mock up sites along the way and today I’m finally ready to introduce you to That Odd Mom’s new home where I can be simplistic on some fronts and wow on others. Let’s check it out.

How Do You Really Feel about Your Blog Platform?

There isn’t a week that goes by that I do not see someone posting on Twitter or Facebook, frustrated with their current blog platform. Either Blogger has made changes that they dislike or just simply down again. Perhaps they made the migration to Wordpress and now feel like they have to sell a Kidney for a beautiful design. Every time I read one of these blog platform vents I just shake my head and wish that all of these wonderful folks had found Squarespace years ago like I did. It is the easiest way to Create a Blog that is stress free.

I’m a Squarespace Addict and I’m Proud

I created my first Squarespace site in 2008 and immediately fell in love. Since then, I have watched the platform grow and change, but never once have I found myself frustrated with these changes or confused like other bloggers with their platforms. Instead, I’m always really excited. Nothing would thrill me more than to explain every single feature to you that Squarespace offers, but that would take a series of post that I don’t have the commitment level to finish off. Instead, I just want to tell you that this platform is awesome and you must check out the Squarespace product tour pages to see all of the awesomnisity for yourself!
