The list of videos in Squarespace course

At the beginning of this month, I have released the new video course, 'Building a website in Squarespace', which covers everything you need to know to build a beautiful multi-page website in Squarespace.

I have received a lot of positive feedback from many of you, and I want to tell you that I really appreciate it. It motivates me to invest even more of my time to improve the course.

Some of you have asked for a more detailed curriculum for this course, so I have decided to create one and share it with you today.
