How does Blotion work?

by Ryan Richards

Blotion turns Notion templates into a hosted website. Blotion only works with the provided template.

After you login to Blotion using your Notion Account, Notion will prompt you to choose which pages Blotion can access.

Choose the Blotion Template you’ve already copied into your workspace.

Blotion will then use an encrypted access token to request the data from your Notion template and parse into a markdown format, which can then be converted into HTML.

You’ll be redirected to your account page. Here you can see your connected sites and information about your account. By default sites are not published, meaning they cannot be viewed by anyone other than you when you’ve logged in.

Free accounts can have 1 published site. You can publish more sites by upgrading to a Pro account. More details can be found on the pricing page.

When you’re ready to publish your site simply hover on the site in your account page and click publish. You should see a live tag appear.

Any changes you make in Notion will be reflected on your blotion site.

Quick Start Steps

  1. Start by copying the blotion template into your own Notion workspace.
  2. Change the template name to something you like, this will become your Blotion subdomain. For example this site is called
  3. Then come back to Blotion and ‘Login with Notion’
  4. Notion will then install the Blotion Integration into your workspace. Blotion will only have access to the pages you select. Make sure you choose the new template you just duplicated.
  5. Blotion encrypts and stores an access token that allows your site and pages to be accessed and converted to markdown securely.
  6. Anytime you make changes on your Notion template the changes will soon be reflected on your live Blotion Site.
  7. Blotion uses SWR caching to speed up page load times, so when a change is made you might see a slight delay while your page is being updated.
