I removed the superfluous stuff and simplified the copy so it speaks more about the "Why" instead of "What".
Design is not my strong suit so I've used https://coolors.co to choose a pallet of colors I liked. Highly recommend it!
The page looks presentable now. I'm not ashamed of showing it anymore :D
I've just finished adding The Hustle newsletter (https://thehustle.co/).
Since Fama now supports 2 different newsletters, I had to create different thumbnails that will be shown in the podcasts app for each newsletter.
"Free" online apps for creating logos and thumbnails were crap so I decided to use Google Slides. Yes, Google Slides.
I've created a graphic I wanted in Google Slides, then I took a screenshot of it and that is what I use. It took me 5 minutes and I'm supper happy with the results.
Life got in the way and a few months have gone by. The idea percolated in my mind all the time.
Finally, I got around to doing it. I first started building Fama to support all the newsletters. But, after talking to @manuel_frigerio I decided to narrow it down to a single newsletter and start from there.
I decided on the one that I read every day, Morning Brew. Last weekend I finished building it.
I'm using Ruby on Rails for the backend and I used carrd.com to hack together a landing page.
I was going through my email inbox full of email newsletters and archiving most of them because I didn't have the time to read them.
I thought to myself "If only I could listen to these as I listen to my podcasts..." and the light bulb turned on. I shall build it!
I don't have time to sit and read all the newsletters I'm interested in. Fama allows me to listen to them instead. Now I'm listening to my newsletters while cooking, walking, working out etc.
