Thoughts On Digital Gardens In 2024

I'm at the tail end of making my own website builder 1. It's lead me to some thinking about digital gardens:


It comes down to reducing friction. The more effort it takes to do something different, the less likely it is I'll try it. Until I reduced the friction by using subdomains I didn't realize how much I wasn't doing.

I'm on v38 of my site builder. Even in the early prototype stages I could feel a big difference in how much more I was making because there was less drag. Whether you call it a digital garden or just a website, my suggestion is to pay attention to how much friction it takes to make things and do what you can to reduce it as much as possible. It's a lot more fun when it feels less like work.
