Adding a blog to Carrd

The lack of a blog puts many off Carrd, but there’s a neat way to add one

One of the frustrations people have with Carrd is not having a blog tool. But there is actually a way of adding one, in an almost seamless way.
First, lets look at why it’s a problem not having a blog on Carrd.
Content is static. Businesses or product founders who build their site on Carrd can never include company updates, or show their build progress. It makes their site very static.
Lack of SEO. One thing you can’t do easily on Carrd is build a content website. There’s no way of dynamically updating or adding content, or managing it on the site. This means you can’t keep adding content for SEO purposes without a lot of work.
We’ve recently added a blog with a new Notion-to-blog tool called Feather. It’s very easy to use, and publishing from Notion makes the writing workflow much simpler.

There are two choices with adding a Feather blog to Carrd. You can either use a subdomain (e.g blog.starrt.co) or a subdirectory (e.g starrt.co/blog).
The subdomain route is nice and neat as a company blog, and is easy to set up. However, you don’t get the SEO benefit on your main domain. Google sees subdomains as separate sites, so only the subdomain would rank.
To get the SEO benefit, use the subdirectory route. It’s a little more involved to setup, but nothing too complicated. If you need help, the founder of Feather is very helpful and quick to respond.
Another tip is to get the navigation working correctly on both Feather and your Carrd site, so that the switch between the site and blog is virtually seamless. You can see it in action on our site starrt.co
