Last year I started building a website for people to share progress updates on their projects.
I started working on it because I had a few ideas on the go, but I was having a hard time keeping up momentum and progress felt slow. I thought if I could post small updates somewhere public it’d help me to keep moving forward, and also be a good way to tell people about what I was up to for when I launch something etc.
The project fizzled out. The problem was that I had to build a complete product before I could start using it myself. And I just wanted to get something going without any friction.
I also did my usual trick of thinking up loads of fancy features and convincing myself they needed to be included, which means loads more work and put me even further behind from the start.
Instead I just need to keep things simple, which is what made me start this blog. It took less than an hour to set up using WordPress and I’m just using categories to group projects together.
I’ll be posting updates as I work on various things, and any new ideas I come up with and see how it goes.
Keep it simple, stupid 👍🏼
