Hey 👋
What’s up? I’m just back from a much needed break. I spent 8 days in a super remote island in the north-west of Scotland to decompress a bit 🧘‍♂️🍹
This month I have been redesigning my website to include a new downloads section and integrating Gumroad. I’m looking to build this section of my site over the coming months - so watch this space.
More importantly I have launched a new Notion Component Kit. This time I tried to take it a step further and create a ton of reusable component blocks you can copy and build your own landing page, personal website or portfolio in minutes. I think this is as far as I can take Notion from a design perspective - let me know what you think.
Next weeks goal is to get some content i’ve been working on published - wish me luck!
Lastly, I’m always fascinated with other folks newsletters metrics 🤓 therefore, I thought I would start sharing my newsletters metrics each month.
📈 October: Open Rate 49.11% | CTR 34.86%
Right, let’s get to it - time for this months roundup below 👇

Tweet of the month
I’m a huge fan of twitter but noticed after watching this short intro from Julian Shapiro (founder of Demand Curve - legend 🤘🏻) i’m using it like a rookie. It’s time to kick it up a notch and become more organised and optimised.
Any tips, tricks or hacks you personally use for twitter? Hit reply.

Here's a look into how I use Twitter.

I suggest you consider the same.

This makes Twitter much more useful 👇 https://t.co/AiH5K6hQ5i
I’ll leave you with this hilarious short clip from the 1994 film Disclosure with Michael Douglas. Just imagine you had to do this every time you were looking for a file on your computer 😅
