Want to start a blog but don't want to deal with the hassle of setting up WordPress or another blogging platform?

By the way, you can use StoryChief’s William Blog for free as well as connect to any other integration like WordPress, Drupal, Webflow, and more. Read more about StoryChief’s integrations.

Step 1: Set up a Notion account

If you don't already have one, create a free Notion account. Notion is an all-in-one workspace that makes it easy to write and organize your blog content.

Step 2: Create a Notion database

Duplicate Feather database

The easiest way to get started, is to Create a free Feather account and duplicate the Notion database which contains all the required tables like Content, Pages, Tags & Authors so you don’t have to spend the time creating properties and databases yourself.

Feather will connect to your Notion workspace and copy over all the required files in your workspace. The template will look like this:

Step 3: Connect Notion to Feather

Once you have finished, go back to Feather, click on Next, and map the fields to Notion properties.

In Feather, paste in the Content Database URL and repeat this step for Content, Pages, Tags & Authors. To get the Database URL, you need to open the Content database page, click on Share, and then click on Publish.

Afterwards, click on the ellipsis icon in the Content table and click on Copy link to view. Paste this link back in Feather and press on Connect Database.

If you duplicated the Notion database earlier, you don’t have to do anything to map the properties here and you can continue to repeat the process for Pages, Tags & Authors.

Once finished, click on Next, set your subdomain and Finish.
