Instructions for private blog page

The private blog page is at msmithconsulting.net/borealis. The password is borealis. We can change the URL and the password. The image at the top of the page is a placeholder which we can change.

I’ve made four instructional videos about creating and adding content to the blog posts:

  • This one shows you how to get to the page and create blog posts.

  • This one shows how to add the various types of content to the posts.

  • This one is about managing comments. Learn more about managing comments right here.

  • Finally, this one is about site roles and how to add Sueño or anyone else as an admin, editor, moderator, etc.

You can refer to this Squarespace tutorial about using content blocks to learn more and you can go to this page to find tutorials on a whole range of topics.

Note: When I made the first video I forgot that you don’t need to make separate text blocks in order to be able to insert another kind of block within it.

Here’s how cohort members will have to get media types to you.

  • TEXT — email to Sueño.

  • IMAGES — email to Sueño or you can create a Dropbox (or Google) folder for them to upload to.

  • AUDIO — upload to your Dropbox folder.

  • VIDEO — Squarespace will embed videos uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, Animoto, and Wistia, so they can upload and then simply give you the URL to that page. See this page to learn more.

  • SLIDES — You can embed slideshows that are hosted on Slideshare.net, so they can upload and then provide you with the URL. You can also upload from Google Drive. See this page to learn more.
