"single responsive page" services around the web

I am seeing a trend of very beautiful, very simple, responsive, mobile web-first services that provide a way for you to have several links on a page. This is because instagram only lets you have one link, and it’s on your bio.

No, it’s not a new idea. But I’m seeing lots of new (to me) services doing it. I wanted to track them here as a snapshot of our vc-hype web bubble.

Simple, free, fully responsive one-page sites for pretty much anything.

requires login, obviously
How I found out about it: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/ from https://twitter.com/wtflanksteak/status/1286831809678974976

Sidenote… I am obviously obsessed with archival and always have been, but have only been able to vocalize that thought recently, like in the last two weeks lol. So I think it’s fun to archive when I learn about the proliferation of a certain kind of service and how they’re trying to make money, as well as how I learned about these services, especially when I learn about them organically (as in, traveling/learning around the web, not when I was explicitly researching services like this as part of a project or something. Though that would be interesting too. “I found this because I needed X”)

This fills me with such a rage that I can barely contain it!!

mostly kidding, but a little not. $6/month for a freaking static single page with links?!

If there was an internet Jesus he’d be doing this right about now.
