in the past week, I've tried so many services for my website: — enables custom domain on a Notion, works well, loads a little slow)

substack — great newsletter + payment integration. poorly designed sites, imo. and no customization.

revue — great for a newsletter. lacking in customization. a little simplistic.)

ghost — self-hosted on digitalocean for $5/mo. powerful, but too complicated to customize. would love if using ghost to run a company blog.

but here's what i've decided on...


so now, my setup looks like: — for my writing. it turns a dropbox folder into a blog. pages + posts written in markdown. easy to customize. — redirects to a notion page, which has my notebook, to do lists, etc. publicly available.

and that's it!

and for my poetry newsletter: super humble. i'll start with just friends and coworkers on bcc: no mailchimp. no tinyletter.
