It’s hard to believe that you can create a blog in under 5 minutes, isn’t it? Read this article and you’ll see. I promise!
Tail.so is one of the easiest tools to use for creating blogs directly from your Notion pages. All you need to get started is a Notion account and a Tail account. Both of them are free to use, so you can easily kick-start your blog spending zero money on the tools.
If you are done creating the accounts for these two tool then let’s get started!
This is the blog that we are going to create in this tutorial. It requires the pro version of Tail to add the custom style, but you can get a really nice website even without spending any money. Let’s start with the first step.
Let’s begin by duplicating this blog template that Tail provides. Press on “Use this template” button from the top-right corner, then press on “Duplicate” and select the workspace where you want to duplicate it.
After you duplicated the template, you have to make it public. To do so press on the “Share” button from the top-right corner, turn on “Share to web” and copy the link to the page. You will need it in the next step.
Open Tail Dashboard and press on “New site”.
In the first field add the name of your blog. In the second field add the Notion page URL that you just copied at the previous step. The last field is optional and it represents the link for your website. If you enter “my-blog” into the field, the link to your blog will be https://my-blog.tail.fyi. Pick carefully, the link should be unique. Choose something that represents you, but don’t worry, you can change it later.
When you are done filling the fields press on “Create”. It can take up to 2 minutes until you can access it using the link. Nevertheless, you can click on it to open it in the dashboard.
Your blog should look like this. Feel free to delete the yellow box with the instructions after you finish this tutorial.
To make your blog more appealing in terms of style you have to add few lines of code. You can find the code that you should add to your blog on step 3 from the instruction box or copy it from here.
Press on the “Code” section on the Tail Dashboard and paste it in the “CSS” tab. Now your website should look like this. Big improvement, right?
This is all for this tutorial. Now continue with adding content to your Notion blog. A lot of readers are waiting for you!
