Linkblog.io is dead, long live linkblogging

Linkblog.io the minimalist link curation tool, the Saas I spent 3 years building, is no longer live. All active users have been contacted and I’ve decommissioned the site.
Though the site was a tremendous success in terms of meeting my personal learning and development goals, building a robust SaaS from soup to nuts, ultimately I didn’t get the traction as far as user base that I had hoped for. Continuing to maintain the site didn’t make sense because it wasn’t generating any income.
I’m still linkblogging!
I’ve been experimenting with Jamstack, Serverless and GitHub Actions and have built a prototype linkblog static site generator that I’m using every day. It builds 10 years of content in just a few seconds. It’s totally serverless. It’s pretty sweet.
I’ve been blown away with the possibilities that the jamstack opens up for creating custom content workflows.
I’ve also started a weekly newsletter where I share the best posts from the linkblog.
I hope you like it, consider subscribing, it's completely free!
All the best.
