Not just that it's confusing as hell. You go and click it thinking is a link and it is not. And they put the real links like a regular word.

Yeees!, they make you think something is wrong with your browser or you just have to scan the page with your mouse to find the link 🙄

Starting a business because of an all-burning passion for the domain is like getting high on your own supply. It will likely cloud your judgment, and lead you to imprudent risks. You need to enjoy doing the work, but you probably shouldn't pursue it with desperation.

That’s why the saying of not making your hobby a job. Unless you find a way to keep doing the things you love while delegating the rest, but is not easy.

Your personal website tells what you know and shows how you think. Use it as your differentiator.

That’s why I don’t try to base mine in what exactly a recruiters wants to see. That’s my website, a part of me. Is just happens that like many, it has an outdated design and portfolio 😅

Who else isn't jumping on the HEY bandwagon?

I was about to leave after the first hours I play with it. But when I forwarded my accounts and gave it 1 full day I really like it. I like to have inbox 0 or I get uncomfortable now I’m using it as a email receiver. The feed is wonderful as I have many subscriptions.

I’ve found that frequent communication and having the team be involved every step of the way is super important here. Try not to design so much in a bubble and be scared of showing rough/unfinished work.

This is important, especially if they’re waiting you to start building. I like to share early, make them part of the process and if you can, design components / sections first instead of the whole page. So devs can work on them asap

BTW, in the whirlwind that was this week, I may have neglected to thank everyone for their incredible support. WOW, never ever been through a week like this. Massively popular product release, battling an existential threat to our business, hundreds of DMs + emails. TYTY ❤️

Congrats, the HEY.com support team is incredible! Super fast.

It depends on the reading direction. Arabic and other RTL reading language users won’t find it easier.

You’re right, depends on the language. The main point I’m trying to make is how often I see center alight data or some crazy mixes having all three alignments in one table making them a nightmare to read.

Hahaha ✋🏼😅 hey I didn’t say I don’t like them, just that I’m seeing them everywhere. My current site has a purplish gradient 😂 so I’m guilty too
