Just had a cool idea… What if https://1feed.app could read sitemaps? They have URLs and last modified dates, so all I'd need to fetch separately would be the titles.
This would mean you could subscribe to pretty much every site on the internet, even if it doesn't have an RSS feed 🤯
Just posted 1Feed on https://news.ycombinator.com! We’ll see how it goes, probably either a success or a total flop 🤷♂️
Hopefully the former! 🙏
Also gave me some further inspiration/clarity/food-for-thought around my mission for 1Feed (and mission as a maker in general)
Wow. This talk by Anil Dash is 8 years old, but it’s still relevant today, maybe even *more* relevant.
Expected to spend like 15mins skimming through but ended up watching the entire hour on 1x speed.
Really powerful talk, highly recommend…
Dark mode users will also probably see a slight performance increase due to the browser no longer doing a bunch of weird photoshoppy things on the entire <body> 😂
It’s not a stupid sort of marketing article BTW — It's an article that you might want to read and genuinely get value out of anyway, even if you have no interest in 1Feed.
It's something that wouldn't be out of place on my personal blog, either.
The cool thing is, I get to write genuinely useful stuff while also building 1Feed’s search presence — it's a win win situation for me and the reader!
🥳 After a lot of procrastination, I finally pushed out the first piece of content on the 1Feed blog!
I’ll be pumping out more content over the next few months, as I hope to make it a large marketing channel for 1Feed.
Let me know what you think of it!
👋 Did you sign up to 1Feed?
I’d really love your feedback in this survey:
✨ It only takes a few mins to complete if you give brief answers (although more detail is always nice)
✨ Your answers are equally valuable to me whether you still use it or not!
Wrote a few thoughts on how I plan to spend less time on my phone — might be helpful to some of you too!
(I'm trying to get into a habit of writing smaller things more regularly on my blog)
