New Year, New Website, New Side Hustle (Sponsored)

Stella

Every year, thousands of people make promises to themselves in the form of New Year’s resolutions. According to reports, some of the most common resolutions are about getting organized, starting a new hobby, and seeing projects through from beginning to end. Unfortunately, less than ten percent of people keep their resolutions, but maybe that’s because they don’t have the tools in place to help them succeed. An inspiring website can make all the difference, whether you’re planning to build the portfolio of your dreams or set up an online store for clients and followers.

Squarespace has rolled out eight new website templates for 2018, bringing their total count up to a whopping 91 available templates. With so many to choose from, you can rest assured that your website will be uniquely yours, with a layout that complements your goals and your aesthetic.

As always, Squarespace templates are customizable with an array of available styles for photo collections, blogs, stores, and more. From banners and sidebars to gallery displays and integrated social media, there are literally hundreds of features that can be easily tweaked and catered to every user’s taste and needs, so it’s best to think of each template as a launch pad for whatever vision you have inside your head.
