markjgsmith is dead, long live linkblogging

2020-11-25 14:55:00 +07:00 by Mark Smith 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!

Update: the linkblog is now located on my main website domain.

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.

The general theme is javascript / tech / web development, but I also blend in some other topics from time to time.

I hope you like it, consider subscribing, it's completely free!

All the best.
