Hey folks, sending to you from a cafeteria that is 30-minutes drive from my home. My place had electricity cut today, but since I don’t want to let you down again (I missed one last week), I drived here to write to you.
Interesting updates on my website, guides, and snippets for you to quickly implement for yourself.
Started working on Notion Tweets - a hyper-focused, zero distraction way for Notion lovers to write, schedule, and publish tweets.
How-to Integrate Plausible Analytics With Next.js and Vercel: a quick guide with full snippets that let you integrate privacy-focused analytics to your site in less than 15 minutes. I’m very happy with Plausible so far, it is beautiful and has everything I need, in the most affordable price - $6 for new sites.
Make Copyable Code Block For Your Blog: another quick guide with snippets that helps you get things done in less than 15 minutes. I love this update so much. Other than copyable, code blocks also have names / titles and auto-generated language / framework indicators. Check out a blog on my website to see in details or see this video tweet I recorded. Will write an article about it next week for you!
If you’re both a Notion fan and a Twitter user, you may like this. By the way, this is not a sale copywriting, I’m just excited about it! I actually plan to release it for free, at least in the first 2-3 months and even more for my newsletter subscribers.
So, what you can get from it? I’ll share as many details as possible to you, including both technical and business-related lessons, exclusively. That means I won’t write it anywhere else, even on my website. I’ll do it in a very informal and authentic way - as a journal.
Why am I doing this way?
To be honest, I don’t think I’ll have enough time to write it like a publishable article. I also believe this type of story should be as authentic as possible. And, honestly, I don’t know yet how far I’ll go with this project, I don’t know whether anyone will use it (except me).
Super early, everything is still in my head and I’m writing it now.
I did draft how the flow will work to make sure it’s possible and makes sense though. See demo flow in this Notion doc.
My plan is to make a landing page next week showing exactly the flow above in a very Notion-like and Twitter-like way. What I mean by that is I’m going to make one side of the landing page is very similar to Notion, and the other side is very similar to Twitter. I believe doing it that way makes the product speak for itself and is the most relatable to Notion + Twitter users. It will also naturally explain people how the product works: you write in Notion like on the left and get the result on Twitter like on the right.
My biggest concern for this is that it may be a bit too complicated for such early stage. My response to that is I’ll try my best and will release the website this week regardless how much it’s done, prioritize schedule over product.
Alright, that’s it for this week! Thank you a lot for subscribing to my newsletter and I wish you a great week ahead. Looking forward to telling you more 🍺!
