Writing Feedback February 13, 2020

Started a satirical tech blog/newsletter. Would love your honest feedback!


Recently started a satirical tech blog/newsletter as a way to have a creative outlet and since I’m entrenched in the tech industry, I feel like I can be niche enough in certain topics. Would love some honest feedback. Still getting my footing but trying to create content rather than wait for perfect topics:

    I like it. It's that coffee break but relevant style news. lol.

    1. 1

      haha thanks @Skurt!

  2. 2

    Love it :). Just as my personal taste: It would be more readable (at least for me) I think, if the text was bigger, bolder perhaps and covering more of the screen. Since it is funny content, a more quirky font might help too. Also, maybe a different background color? Again, just personal taste. It looks and feels great otherwise :D

      hey @ugur47 really appreciate the feedback. I just picked a standard Squarespace template, but I get what you're saying! It's not too serious, so I should convey that through the design.

    the title lured me, but the domain already cracked me! this has massive potential.

    I would keep titles short and link through twitter account, something that will look serious or at least make people stop and wonder for a moment. something like "SaaSy News" or whatever.
    another take is to link to actual news and give them a twist. e.g. like the "startup raised funding without machine learning" and link to that actual news post.

      thanks for the feedback and the read. I will definitely work on getting the titles shorter/smaller. Yeah always so hard to choose the perfect domain haha.

      interesting!! :)
