Blocs 5 is Here, So is The New Blocs Master 5.0
Blocs 5 is finally out, so that means I can share with you what I have been working on in the past few months.
First of all, Happy Blocs 5 Day! The developers of this amazing web design tool have finally released the next major version, and it is awesome!
I have been using the beta version of Blocs 5 for many months. Honestly, it is so difficult for me to return back to Blocs 4 now, even though it was my favorite web design app for 2 years. Blocs 5 fixes almost every issue I had with Blocs 4, and adds some amazing brand-new features.
There are a number of significant updates I want to share with you today:
The Blocs Master Update
I have rebuilt the Blocs Master website (the one you are reading this on right now) to better represent what I am doing to help Blocs users. It is simpler and more colorful, yet more flexible and has way more content than before.
As of right now, there are almost 250 pages, but the project runs very smoothly on my MacBook. So, I can confirm that Blocs 5 is definitely suitable for big and complex websites. I am still not finished adding pages, so I will keep you updated on my experience managing this website going forward.
The Blocs 5 Course is coming soon
I have been working on the brand-new comprehensive course for Blocs 5, which will be available very soon. I have written a separate post about it, which you can read here.
Blocs Templates are getting a big upgrade
Blocs 5 has some amazing features to make working with Blocs templates a much better experience. To learn about it and find out how it is changing the Blocs Templates, please read this dedicated post.
Built with Blocs is now part of Blocs Master
For the past 6 years, I have been collecting Blocs websites made by other designers, and sharing them on BuiltwithBlocs.com. Today, I am happy to announce that Built with Blocs is now part of the Blocs Master website as ‘Made in Blocs’.
The Made in Blocs page has over 300 websites, all made with the Blocs website builder. In the coming weeks and months, I will continue to add many more.
I personally check every single submitted website to be sure it was built with Blocs. You will find websites from both experienced web designers and complete beginners. This collection of websites will give you a general idea of what is possible to make with the Blocs app, whether you have experience making websites or not.
If you have not submitted your website to Built with Blocs (or Made in Blocs) yet, now is a good time to do it.
New Blocs Master Membership Tiers
This summer, I launched a new more affordable way to access my products - the Blocs Master All-Access Pass. Recently, I renamed it 'Blocs Master Membership', and today I am introducing two brand-new membership tiers.
To see pricing and compare the plans, please visit the Membership page.
I am adopting the Apple way, and naming it like a lineup of Mac or iPhone products. All of us use Macs to run the Blocs app, so I think these revised tiers will be more straightforward.
I am still working on the Free Membership package, but you can already sign up today by joining the Blocs Master Community.
By the way, I want to make it clear, although I plan on raising the price for the Max plan in the future, the base price will never move up for existing customers. So, the price you have signed up for is locked in for you until you cancel your membership.
Don't like subscriptions? I've got you covered.
In addition to expanding the membership options, I am also keeping the ability to purchase my products with a one-time payment for those who don't like subscriptions. Just go to the pricing page, and click on the link below the pricing tables.
