Finally Network Collaborations - @sndbox, @critday, @dayleo

in #utopian-io5 years ago



Today I would like to share the latest on collaborative efforts to bring Finally to more people. Over the past couple weeks I’ve worked on two collaborative themes. These new themes will be available to all users of Finally in future. Collaborations are a great way to get more people involved in the project.

EatThingsMakeStuff & Finally

Finally now supports a new theme called MAKE. This theme created In partnership with @dayleeo the editor for @eatthingsmkstuff. One of the ideas I have with Finally is creating themes for specific users. These themes can adapt to work with the wider community. @dayleeo planned to discontinue her website EatThingsMakeStuff would move entirely to the Steem blockchain. After reading about the move I thought Finally could be a potential alternative. We chatted and I offered to make a stripped back minimal version on-top of the Finally platform.


Mobile view for the MAKE theme. Showcasing @eatthingsmkstuff but also works for other content too. is live.

With MAKE I introduced the hashtag navigation. Hashtag nav allows Finally sites to separate and display many types of content. I have plans for this navigation to increase in flexibility. It will also be available in all other themes.

Critday & Finally

As part of the @sndbox cohort 2 assignment I paired up with @critday to work on a collaboration.

Critday has an engaged and active audience of architecture students on Instagram([@critday] and on We discussed at length what would be an appropriate collaboration. The plan for Finally is to create a website builder platform using data stored on the STEEM blockchain.

We decided to create a custom theme designed to showcase student work. Students can get involved with the STEEM network whilst also getting a portfolio.

@critday designed wireframes which I turned into a working prototype on the Finally platform.

This is the start of the collaboration with @critday and we'll be looking at how to onboard architecture students to the STEEM blockchain.

I really like the work you're doing, and looks very nice and clean using the Make theme.

That said, I really would have liked to see more content in the post. It would have been great to read more about the thought process behind each of the themes, to get more insights into the project. At less than 400 words, this is more of a sketch of a post, to my mind. It's the sketch of a really great post I'd really want to read.

Thanks, appreciate you taking the time to look at the post. It's ace you've tried finally yourself. There is certainly a lot of work to be done but I'm chipping away as often as I can.

I appreciate the honest feedback that you would have enjoyed reading more about the process. I have a post planed detailing all of the themes but perhaps I could have included part of that here also. I'll do my best to write a post that has a thorough breakdown.

Thank you for your review, @didic!

So far this week you've reviewed 25 contributions. Keep up the good work!

Awesome work and collaboration! this going to bring more sexy to the blockchain ;) Kudos

killer work @sambillingham! really exited about this. it's the perfect solution to share with folks leaving Medium and wanting to be more involved in the blockchain world :)

Whoop! Thanks @dayleeo. Still lots of work to do but I'm excited about the possibilities for Finally.

Wow. This collaboration is stunning. Bravo! Applications like these / partnerships with influencers is so critical to draw new talent into the blockchain ecosystem. Not just Steem, crypto as a whole.

Amazing work and so exciting to finally see the fruits of your hard labor ;)
