Exclusive to HEY for You

Email the web

Now blogging is as easy as emailing world@hey.com.

Personal publishing gets the HEY treatment. Write something wonderful to the World Wide Web today at world@hey.com.

It’s 2024, 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. Address it, write email, 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 put words on the internet? With HEY World, you don’t.

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.
