Hi Sandeep,

  1. How do you make UX decisions?
  2. I see that Hashnode changes it's UI and UX quite often. Do you have to write the UI and restructure the frontend code once again? How do you adapt to the changes so fast?
  3. What are the plans for the monetization of Hashnode?

Thanks for the question!

How do you make UX decisions?

As you may know my co-founder Syed Fazle Rahman takes the design decisions. Maybe he can shed some light here. :D

We kept changing UI/UX to experiment and achieve PMF. Now that Hashnode is showing signs of PMF, we intend the keep the design language and overall UX intact. More about finding PMF here: hashnode.com/post/i-am-helping-thousands-of..

During the experimental phase, we would reuse most of the front end code and only iterate the design.

What are the plans for the monetization of Hashnode?

We intend to keep Hashnode free for individual bloggers and make money from businesses that are making products for developers. More about it here: hashnode.com/post/hashnode-is-changing-more..
