  • Pros:Β 

    Clean interface. The random quotes are a nice touch.

    Cons:Β 

    Markdown support will be good. Search to add img from unsplash instead of only uploading wld be good.

    A nice MVP! Looking forward to see how this develops further.

  • Pros:Β 

    Very clean. Easy on my eyes.

    Cons:Β 

    The home page once you login is not intuitive.

    I will probably use this to draft my future blog posts! Thanks for your work.

πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈHi PH, I built a free blogging tool without a like button. The goal was to bring back the freedom of old blogs used to have. Freedom of writing anything you want without a specific purpose. It feels like blogging is very attached with sales and branding these days. Even Medium is like a text version of TED, which made me feel like that I have to write something valuable. I mean valuable for everyone. When I wanted to write something personal(not private as diary though), FB was not an answer, WP was too heavy for this. Long story short, it's an alternative blogging tool for your personal writings. So write whatever comes to mind. (PS. I also wanted to bring some vibe from duotone printing. πŸ‘¨β€πŸŽ¨)
@seoultonykim What do you mean that Medium is a text version of TED? I don't see that as a bad thing - I love writing on medium.
@christopher_lee4 Well, I'm glad you love to write on Medium. Just take it as any single product can't satisfy everyone :-)
@christopher_lee4 @seoultonykim I think that comparison is totally accurate. In fact, I don't even mind Medium or TED talks. They're great for what they are. They're just " both engagement-oriented. Medium pivoted _into_ that with the clap button. TED talks are famously edited to perfection for easy consumption. This paper.coffee project seems to be something very different. Similar to Instagram experimenting with removing likes' visibility, this captures the same energy of "getting your voice out there" without the stress of whether it's appealing to one's audience. It's almost like the social equivalent of Ommwriter. Great idea!
@christopher_lee4 @billimp totally agree πŸ‘Œ
Like your sepia background :) G luck!
I started with Medium with a similar view, but looking at what Medium has become, I'm skeptical of third party places to write valuable stuff.
I love the name, domain and design 🀩️ The joy of writing ✨️
