I like it - font choice, good color palette, easy to navigate.

One thing that bugs me, and this is probably just me, is the speed of the "A designer, A dev, etc..." on your homepage. I think putting a delay in between each word after it is typed out would be effective.

I like the color combinations (similar to css tricks)

I really like the UI of the website. Also awesome color choices! But, in my opinion when it comes to personal websites you should put your skills and experience in focus. At least if your goal is the sell yourself to recruiters. I'm sorry but most recruiters won't care about blog posts. They care about what can you do and how long you've been doing it. A project portfolio is also important. Blog post do show a bit of your personality and interest for sure but a recruiter probably won't have time to read them. You might be the last application they're going through on a friday evening, the last thing you want to do is waste their time.

But other than that great work! And of course, this is just my opinion.

That's quite clean and good looking. Kudos.
I do more minimal stuff.

Your website should have a dark mode, it would look so cool and easy with the eyes with it!

I realise that.
the thing is that it's most developed and experimented on app that I have.
I add remove features on the website like crazy so a lot of things still aren't in place.
If you go through the code there's a lot of crap code there, which was written just to experiment with a feature addition.

Good news though, there's going to be a dark mode addition specifically to the blog page first, i'll scale it up to the entire site soon

Absolutely love the color choice!

I would suggest having a light transition for the hamburger menu though. It feels kinda jarring...

Great UI. The colors, the animation all are great. But I think you should speed up the "A designer, A developer, An indiehacker" animation.
Still, great job

Cool design Siddhrath! I love the simplicity. I noticed you have no social links on the site? You should do something about that. Otherwise, I give you a virtual high-5!

Looks sweet. The button inside of the blog page to return to the home page is not working. Also, any external links to twitter, dev.to or others I would make them open in a new blank tab.
