Hi Everyone. I thought I would set myself a challenge to recreate a few pages of my own personal website using Notion. Free Template pack included.
In all honesty, I thought I would just give the homepage a shot at first and leave it there. So I created the homepage and fired off a tweet to see if anyone was interested. I didn't expect so many people to like and comment on the tweet. This is by far the most engagement I have had on twitter by far!
After some quick validation from the Notion and No Code twitter community, I thought I would turn it up a notch and try to recreate the rest of my personal site.
Personally, I'm pretty impressed at what you can pull off using Notion despite a few constraints. It took me roughly 4 hours from start to finish. However, the one substantial advantage was that I simply had to copy and paste all the copy from my website and also had all my assets to hand. The trickiest thing was positioning and the alignment of the blocks which still needs some work by Notion.
As with any drag and drop builder, there are limitations - the main one being the design constraints. However, it's a fair trade-off given the time it takes to create and publish something. Going forward I'm seriously considering using Notion for my landing pages for new products.
Anyway, if you're interested in reading more about how I created it I created a quick post about it here 👉 https://www.samdickie.me/writing/recreating-my-personal-website-using-notion
