    Very useful and interesting content! Awesome design, no ads.



    The content is crafted by makers for makers. Amazing learning experience. Also you can find interesting people there, get to know your fellow makers. And very minimalistic design allows the brain to rest.

    Beautiful design and range of high quality content



    It's fantastic to have a place for stories and advice from makers. There's so many good articles already published and I can't wait to see this grow into the next TechCrunch for Makers 🙌

Hello PH! Super excited to introduce Maker Mag, the first ever magazine for indie makers. It's a participatory publication, with currently more than 40 writers creating content for everyone to learn, grow, connect, and discuss what matters to makers. Why does this matter? Because indie news publications are a great sign of a community's vitality. They are a space to inform, inspire, and connect. At Maker Mag, we brainstormed some principles, which include transparency, diversity, and honesty. We just launched with some interesting articles, such as interviews of @rrhoover, @abadesi and @bentossell about building diverse communities and supporting other makers, tips to get started as a digital nomad or to better manage your finances as an indie maker, and long-form pieces about friendship, imposter syndrome, the definition of a startup, and more. We hope you find it useful and join us on this exciting journey! Please consider contributing too. 🎉 Many thanks to all the contributors!

Congrats!!@anthilemoon What I like about this publication is that the intention permeates through the screen, like @rrhoover mentioned below, if you do consider a quarterly print version, I believe it would be just as succesful. Love the long form content, love the way that it actually provides valuable insight and love how many people have joined and collaborated to create this. Wish you all the best!

Once more, great work Anne-Laure! Quality, well-written articles on interesting topics - including wellness which matters so much. I read a few articles already and I can't wait to see what comes next.

Hi PHers, Indie Makers finally have a home now like how large businesses have Forbes / Fortune and tech companies have TechCrunch / The Verge with the Maker Mag magazine. It is the publication highest readership in the community (with 300 followers on Twitter and growing). Publisher / Maker of magazine @anthilemoon has assembled a great team of contributors, editors and most importantly Makers to produce useful content for Indie Makers community. From managing financial affairs to getting support as a Maker. There’s something for every Maker and more articles are under pipeline already. Hope you enjoy reading the magazine or the newsletter (if you are an email person)!

Hi @anthilemoon and #Makermag team! I am so proud for what we have collectively achieved. This is absolutely a stellar work of collaboration and effort, and I am so proud of @anthilemoon for making this happen. Online communities are powerful; they allow people to connect regardless of where they are in the world. And our launch articles reflect that. Starting with @jamesstewart’s article on friendships formed between makers, where we encounter people around the world and learn new different things from other lived experiences. Following this is @anthilemoon’s interview with @abadesi on on the importance of diversity in order to allow underestimated people to truly work in their fullest capacity w/o spending needless time worrying how they can fit in. Coming in with nomad life are @bsamel’s articles, which include an interview with @pierregillesl who has decided to quit his job in Paris to travel and work full-time on this project. There is also the article by Irma Mesa on products to maker remote working life easier. And of course, we also have financial tips for you by @devarsh and @valentinourbano to survive as an indie maker and a nomad. In the side of community and product discussions, Frances Foster examines the conflicting debate on what a startup really is. @anthilemoon interviews @bentossell on his amazing journey, from getting into @producthunt and becoming a no-code maker and most recently joining Earnest Capital. @anthilemoon also @zacharycsy, a precocious 17-y/o maker interested by product innovation. Of course, as @producthunt has been instrumental in expanding the makers ecosystem, my interview with @rrhoover is an in-depth look at @producthunt, including @nireyal’s Hook Model, and how @producthunt is of great value to the makers community. Product Hunt has enabled discussions that had historically mostly happened within tech hubs to become more global. It’s also beautiful to witness makers from different verticals collaborating and interacting with each other.

@anthilemoon @jamesstewart @abadesi @bsamel @pierregillesl @devarsh @valentinourbano @bentossell @producthunt @zacharycsy @rrhoover @nireyal @jic94 Wow. My partner and I are now concluding a two year digital nomad/entrepreneurial networking tour of Southeast Asia/HK and Shenzhen,in China. I have just pitched a story to Makermag on Troublemaker, a co-working space in Shenzhen, but hopefully I can share other experiences as well. Co-working spaces, governmental support, governmental challenges, exhibition opportunities, positive moments, negative situations, cheap hotels in big Asian cities, food etc...Though I am now primarily focused on my AR-based startup, I have a background as a writer, videomaker and photographer. There is definitely a need for Makermag and I wish the team all the best!

@anthilemoon @jamesstewart @abadesi @bsamel @pierregillesl @devarsh @valentinourbano @bentossell @producthunt @zacharycsy @rrhoover @nireyal @jic94 Thanks Julian.... Actually I had filled that in before I saw your post. Do you have a word count suggestion? You ran that excellent piece on Ryan Hoover; that was a treat. Deadline?
