ISSUE #022 | View in browser


From the curator👨‍💻

Hey, Nic here, welcome to issue #022 of The Slice! If you missed last week's issue, you can read here  👈 

This week I have neat little offer to all my subscribers. I was among a few creators to be given early access to review the Newsletter OS, which is a comprehensive Notion dashboard on how to curate, build and scale a newsletter. 

Janel, the creator, has kindly given all Slice subscribers a discount to her product. If you're thinking about making your own newsletter, or you have been holding off, this resource makes it that much easier and less overwhelming. For transparency, I do get a tinsy winsy commission from this. Check it out

There are still classified spots available, details here if you're interested.


I have a quick survey that I would really appreciate if you take it! It will LITERALLY take like 4 seconds...I promise 🥺

Chirr App  

Chirr App browser extension helps to turn a blog post (or any web page) into a Twitter thread. It captures text and media and converts it into a series of tweets that you can publish with a single click.


V.One is a no code tool that makes it easier for you to build a monetizable app, without a steep learning curving and without writing a line of code in an easy to use drag-and-drop modular editor 


Lobe helps you train machine learning models with a free, easy to use app. Just show it examples of what you want it to learn, and it automatically trains a custom machine learning model that can be shipped in your app.


PFPMaker generates awesome professional/creative profile pics from any photo. It uses background removal AI, beautifies your photo and generates dozens of profile pic variations automatically.


My picks of dope newsletters and communities for this week.
This weeks featured newsletter is Refactoring by luca, a weekly column about making great software, working with people, and personal growth. Definitely a must read in anybody's weekly newsletter arsenal.  

Blog posts/Articles 📚

There is a lot of crap on the internet, so I rifle through it and pick out a gem or two that I found this week.

How we made our SaaS homepage cookie-free.
"If you've browsed the web in the last 10 years then you'll have seen more than your fair share of cookie banners!." Read more

6 Months in Review.
Since its been about 6 months or so since I started this newsletter, I decided to write a little blog post about my learnings and reflections.

"Build-in public seems to that thing that I have been seeing a lot of, and I hate to admit, but it's also been something that I have neglected. Over the past few months, I have shared a few minor and a few major milestones, but not as much as I would have liked to, so I thought why not start now."
