I've reached a point after 2.5 years of writing & creating content on multiple platforms, it's always best to take stock and decide if you want to have your own space on the web.
I really wanted to implement this combo of website + newsletter + blog of my own and after using umpteen platforms out there (like Ghost, Substack, Carrd, Webflow, Tilda.cc, Unicorn Platform, etc), it did not serve my need to continuously iterate the webspace I owned.
By iterate I mean, I need to add something almost every week. Unexpectedly, after years of tinkering with Framer, its latest iteration of designing & shipping websites was very promising. I kept an eye on it for the last entire last year and thanks to ArjunPhlox and his experiments, I was sold on its capabilities & future roadmap.
In one weekend, I setup my entire website, blog and everything else. It was an absolute no-brainer. The flexibility to add my favourite typefaces, layout my simple blog, add categories, CMS and much more.Also, The pricing was way way better than Webflow too.
I can now iterate upto my heart's content and ship for instant results. Excited to own my tiny rock on the internet space.
