Listed is a minimal blogging platform ideal for publishing a public journal or sharing domain specific knowledge. Writers can publish directly from the comforts of Standard Notes and readers can subscribe to new articles via email.

Listed is unopinionated about fonts, widths, and colors, and instead defers to the reader's system settings to provide a familiar experience.


Generate an author code on to get started.


How to style your blog with custom CSS:

1. Create a new note in Standard Notes, and call it listed_styles.css (name doesn't matter).

2. Use the following metadata structure, followed by some CSS, then publish the note to your blog.

metatype: css

html, body {
    font-family: "Avenir Next", sans-serif;
    color: #37424F;

h1 a, h2 a, h3 a, h4 a {
    color: #37424F !important;

.post-content {
    color: #37424F !important;

#author-header .bio {
    opacity: 1.0;

How to specify post date and canonical URL:

You can change the date that appears on your post, or set a canonical URL if you're importing a post from another location (such as Medium).

1. Use the following metadata structure at the beginning of your note:

created_at: 2017-11-20 17:08:05
