    To avoid being you the sole person behind the project, I think you should consider forming a very small team, maybe 2-3 persons you trust to help you curate contents. Even better if they have a different perspective about the field, so you can present contents responding to distinctive point of views.

    It is a good idea, but do think on how to monetise this, at least to have some sort of motivation to keep the project going if, at some point, you are too tired to continue.

    Maybe creating a magazine on Flipboard (https://flipboard.com/) could be a good, low risk, start.

    I also think it could be good idea, so you don't feel in the need of posting anything that's not valuable enough of sharing, just to fill the gap.

    It could also give you, perhaps, more time to add something regarding why that link is there (e.g. your personal views or any sort of short comment).

    I think a problem with some of the sites that only provide links, is that you normally have to open and close them to know what they are about, something that could, maybe be avoided with a short text beforehand.

    Very good article, hopefully more apps will take this into consideration and not just put the lazy, boring "bug fixes and performance improvements".

    I really like Medium's notes, telling a story makes it very coherent with the product itself; it's enjoyable too.

    I think even better would be a web-based version (just like Figma) so everybody can use it --no matter what your OS is.

    Actually, no. I haven't tried it yet.

    Pretty accurate. I speak a bit of Italian, and I think this part fits better:

    …"and a style that communicates our way of being".

    I think he's trying to say that it fits better with who they are now, their personality and values. Not necessarily means anything, though, as those are branding buzzwords.

    Yes, that's a nice approach, to teach them see why something is broken. I've met some developers that can't distinguish some differences with the actual design, not just those "1px to the left" that only designers see, but bigger ones as well : )

    In the other hand, it's really nice when someone who is not a designer points you out that something on the UI doesn't feel right.

    Thanks! Currently I have no permits to post directly on Jira. They prefer to have someone else in charge of supervising all the tickets that are created. I would push to post on Jira directly, but I'm missing some feature to point in which part of the screen is the issue.

    Thanks! I'll give it a try.

    Yes, that's the difficult part… Because using Sketch + Zeplin the hand-off is pretty straightforward, and the developer has access to all measurements. But if he / she follows that accurately and with attention to detail, that's another story…
