SubSets is the first blog social network in the world. Combine the power of social networks with the benefit of having your own platform.
How many times have you tried to start a blog?
I have no idea how many blogs I started. Maybe ten. But I always have the same problem.
Should I use WordPress? Which theme? How do I collect subscribers? What’s the best server? What happened if I get a lot of traffic and the blog breaks? How do I find readers? Is anyone going to read anything I write here? Should I write on Facebook?
Then after a week... ok, a month. It's done!
And you write your first article.
You share it with your friends, on Facebook, on Twitter, on LinkedIn, and even you email all your contacts.
Where else can I share my blog? Should I try Reddit?
They say you have to be consistent, so you write another article. And another one. And after a month...
No one cares.
But, you know it takes time, Google and all of that. So you try for another month.
But no one is reading. Just one comment in every article, and from the same guy all the time. Your only fan. No one is sharing or giving you any feedback.
So, you give up.
That's hard. And probably it's not the first time that happened to you.
I don't blame you because that's what happened to me many times, and that's what's happening to everyone.
But we are here to solve this problem for good.
That can change. Let me explain to you my idea. You are going to love it.
Think of this platform as two things at the same time.
1 - Medium meets Substack
Starting a blog is still a hard thing to do. Choosing a theme, setting up a newsletter, a server, many technical things, SEO plugins, plugins to have comments. Many things!
But 99% of us just want to write.
So, let's create a platform that allows you to do exactly that.
With SubSets, you can create a blog and start a newsletter with a click of a button.
No designs, no themes, no configuration. Everything will be focused on writing. Minimal, simple.
Having a blog with SubSets means:
Get subscribers for your newsletter from day 0.
No themes, no templates. One minimal style that works.
Use your own domain.
You are part of a community of writers. Never write alone again.
Publish your articles and send a newsletter or both.
Your blog and your newsletter are in the same place.
You own your data, export it and leave the system (but you won’t, because it’s great).
When you publish, your work is shared in the network.
If people like your articles, we give you more visibility.
We send you readers your way.
Starting a blog doesn’t have to be complicated. And it won’t be anymore.
2 - A Social Network Around Your House
When you create a new blog, you start from zero.
It's very different than when you join a social network. If you start an Instagram Account or a Twitter Account, yes, you start from zero, but many people can connect with you inside that network.
Think of SubSets as a Social Network, but instead of having your personal profile, you have your blog (with your own domain), and you can get the benefit of being part of a community, and at the same time, you own your platform.
So, no more writing alone.
Not only get your readers, but you can also benefit from the readers of the whole network. The readers of blogs like yours are also the readers of your blog.
Please help me to make this possible.
To make this idea a reality, I need your help.
Now, I'm offering 100 LIFETIME plans to everyone who wants to support this project early.
With your help, I can allocate more resources and make this faster. The smallest plan will be $29/month when the project goes live.
Would you want to make this a real project?
