Exclusive to HEY for You

Email the web at world@hey.com

Now blogging is as easy as emailing. Personal publishing gets the HEY treatment. Write something wonderful to the World Wide Web today at world@hey.com.

It’s 2021, and setting up a blog and email newsletter is still way too hard. You either have to set up a website which is a whole thing, or use a separate service that’s expensive, cumbersome, bloated, or all of the above.

On the other hand, sending an email is easy. Fill in the address, type up your missive, press send. That’s when it occurred to us; you can email one person, a few people, or even an entire company. Why can’t you just email the web? Why do we have to do this whole separate thing to just put words on the internet? With HEY World, you don’t. Here’s how it works:

to: world@hey.com

If you’re a HEY for You customer, start a new email, and put “world@hey.com” in the “to” field. The glow is how you know you’re writing to the world.

Write + Send = Posted

Write your email just like any other email in HEY. Once you press send we take your email and post it to world.hey.com/you/your-post-title. Super clean, no trackers, cookies, or javascript. Just your words in all their speedy glory.

Once you write your first HEY World email, you’ll get a “world.hey.com/you” page (with the “/you” part being the same as the beginning of your @hey.com email address). The page lists everything you’ve written, along with a way for people to subscribe via email or grab the RSS feed.
