    I don't compress the files, I may on occasion edit them with Corel Paint Shop pro to reduce the file size if one is bigger than the maximum size allowed. 

    Great. but sir, don't you think it is somehow lengthy and hectic thing to process each and every image individually. I have also tried with your mentioned method, It really works great.

    Hi Jay

    I haven't done much to concern myself with speed and performance other than follow squarespace guidelines

    I've made some images as low quality as i can while ensuring they don't look poor -- that's about it.

    One thing -- I've taken some images and overlayed them with opaque white to make them less crisp so that the black font would be more easily seen

    You can do some free photo editing here -- Pixlr

    Another beginner tip -- I was able to add some CSS code to highlight some area of text -- all i did was google what i wanted to do and some sites have the code right there -- you copy and paste the code and voila! -- you did it.  Key thing -- you need to know what you want to apply the CSS code to.  You want to add "Squarespace Block Identifier" to your browser -- it ID's the blocks on your webpage -- its a great productivity tool.


    Thanks Sir, You have given very useful guidelines. I would surely follow it. Since, I am a beginner, It would take me a couple of hours to digest your tips at all. And for CSS Codes, thanks a lot, It really makes the work superb and more comfortable.

    Speed has not been an issue for me as well. Sometimes i have an image that is slow loading on mobile. i just make adjustments to it, remove the animation, make the file size smaller but it is rare to have to do that.


    Derrick, I have also observed that your site is really cool on mobile. It is responsive, indeed. And, how to do you compress the size of file? Do you use any external tool?

    Thanks & Regards..

    I find the concept very interesting even more so since I am a writer and share it with friends and family. FB is my main sharing place and pinterest and email and since a lot of social media can get a bit, well a bit mean, at times, I find your concept a good one. The only suggestion I have is to put the form on the header on a button, let folks see the whole banner and then if they want to request or register for the discount they can open the form. 



    Hi there!

    I just have had a cursory look at your site. That looks amazing. It features what you want to speak up to your heart. I am also a beginner level learner. The site that you have reflects you somewhat a sufficient experience in handling in all of these stuff. My point, I am also planning to have the same spot as that of yours, to feature my ideas, pictures, videos etc.  Apart, how do you handle the site speed and performance because, I suppose, media files make site speed heavier. Nevertheless, can you please share your experience in this regard.
