Step 4: Select the account

Squarespace gives you the option of any type of account you might want to connect. For this example I'm connecting my Instagram account.

Step 5: Enter Your Profile URL

To connect an Instagram account you will be asked for the link to your profile. For other social media accounts you may be redirected to that site and asked to login. Once you've entered your link or logged into your profile, select "Show Social Icon" to display the icon on your site and link to your profile. Then click save.

Step 6: Check for your account

Make sure you see the account you just connected in the sidebar, that's how you'll know that it was successfully connected. If you have social icons on your site, check them and make sure they connect to the right accounts. If you have separate personal and business profiles, Squarespace may automatically connect to a personal account if you're already logged into that account, so you'll want to double check for that.

Step 2: Go to Blog Page

From there click on the blog link in the menu. Depending on how you've named and ordered your navigation, it might not be at the bottom like mine and it could be named differently.

Step 4: Add a Title + Write the Post

When you add a blog post, the following box will pop up. In the first field add your title. Below that start writing your post. In future tutorials I will show you how to add an image, but we'll keep it easy today.

Step 5: Add Tags + Categories, then Publish

Once you've finished writing your post, add tags and categories in the bottom left. In the future Squarespace will remember categories that you've used before and allow you to choose from them. The categories will be helpful for visitors who want to search your blog posts by a certain category, while the tags are useful for search engine optimization. Be sure to use any terms you think people will google when searching for the content your posting. After you've added those click the Save & Publish button in the bottom right corner.
