🗃 3 Design Resources
📃 Article - How to Make a Portfolio of Content Ideas on Twitter
Here's what I learned from reading this article:
As creators, we should all strive to create helpful content for our audience.
The micro thread format allows you to test out short but engaging Twitter threads to see what resonates with your audience.
This combined with Twitter Analytics can help you to create content your audience finds interesting and helpful.

🔨 Tool - CSS Gradient
CSS Gradient is a free gradient generator tool.
Gradients can be difficult to create at the best of times so having a simple GUI to interact with makes the process a lot easier. You can also export the resulting CSS directly into your project.
🔨 Resource - Flaticon
Flaticon is an excellent resource for icons.
Making use of an icon set as opposed to lots of different types of icons is an easy way to improve your designs. It adds a sense of consistency.
🎨 2 Design Tips
Link to your social media accounts
Be sure to include links to your social media accounts on your website.
When people come across your work they will want to learn more about you and what you do.
People aren't going to manually search for you on YouTube or Twitter so make things easier by including social media links.
Links should be noticeable at a glance
A user should be able to see links at a glance.
You can do this by:
changing the color
changing the font-weight

This landing page is used to drive sales and inform potential readers what the book is about.
