Want to try a publishing platform?

Hi there!

I'm trying to stop searching for a perfect product and rather publish early and iterate.

Since yesterday, the 1st version of yoop.blog is online!

It's a true MVP : at the moment it only make it's most important value proposition: publishing the easiest way by sending an email. Even my mother can do it :)

Let's they it's like an Alpha version.

I'm curious to know if there are any people interested in testing (5 max to start with).

Do you think I should put a field on the home page to allow people to subscribe to news/try the product?

Thanks!

    Are you doing something like Hey World: https://www.hey.com/world/

      It's quite similar indeed. Except you don't need to have a proprietary email account.

      I'm publishing with my own tools for years and recently I stopped using some geeky terminal commands to publish by simply sending an email to a given email address.

      That's where I thought I could provide this service to other people because this makes publishing so easy (even my mother can send an email! But don't ask her to use a CMS…).

      Hey provides this feature as a side-one and I want to provide a publishing platform by email as a core product. Then improving it step by step :)

        Right. Well.. good luck with it. You may wanna get feedback from pro bloggers.

    I've just improved the homepage so I explain a bit more what's yoop.blog is all about.

    And now you can write your email address right into the page so I can contact you later :)

    Let me know if you have any advises.
