This is a huge update for SqSp.
I've been using Squarespace for a few years now on my Method site, and I've been beta testing the new version (this site runs on the new v6 platform) and it's a joy to use. If you're considering making a portfolio, website or blog, I honestly suggest you give it a whirl. It's amazing. I trust it way more than other free services (you get what you pay for, remember) and you own your own content! Ever wonder why those services are free?
At its core, Squarespace is about your online identity. Your web presence is a direct extension of your personality. It is critically important all businesses and individuals not only have an online presence they are proud of, but one that they are in control of.
