Time has become so limited this week, I haven't had time to touch code today (yet).

Knowing this, I've starting coding in my head. Function names, filenames, db tables, etc.

When out and about I literally visualize my IDE like #TheQueensGambit

I literally #buildinpublic ๐Ÿคฃ
Successful hr of building b4 starting day job. Was able to do the following:

๐ŸŒCreate global context for user subscription info

๐Ÿ› ๏ธCreate utility functions for interrogating subscription info

๐Ÿ—๏ธUse utility functions in 40% of the places it's needed

#buildinpublic #solopreneur
Nothing excites me more than working on my own creations.

#buildinpublic #solopreneur
All I want, is 11 thousand 7 hundred and ate-tee....paying subscribers ๐ŸŒž

When I stopped worrying about convincing people of @MediaNotesApp's use case, and just have a conversation with, I started getting more people who want to be on the waiting list for the alpha release.

tl;dr you can always sell without always selling

Working on paywall design for
@MediaNotesApp
using #figma. Trying to decide which would be more clear to the user ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿง.

I'm really curious, and slightly scared, of how this incoming recession will affect the #buildinpublic #indiedev & #startups community. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Seems like the downside would depend on the industry and the product/service provided.๐Ÿง

Anything people out there are doing to prepare? ๐Ÿค”
Today, I'm starting to work on the paywall design for
@MediaNotesApp. Using #hulu #HBOMax and #funimation as inspiration. Really like the designs they've created.

Any apps with beautiful paywalls that I should consider? ๐Ÿค”

Today, I'm starting to work on the paywall design for @MediaNotesApp. Using #hulu #HBOMax and #funimation as inspiration. Really like the designs they've created.

I'll have 3 subs:
$1/month
$8/year
$25/lifetime

#buildinpublic #startups #design #uiux #uiuxdesign
This year is the year for change in my life. This year I take calculated risks. This year, I will finish multiple side projects, release them, charge what they are worth, and add fuel to what works. This year is the start to a new journey.

#startups #buildinpublic #entrepreneurs
Using @figma to design a paywall for @MediaNotesApp today.

As someone who gravitates to structuring data to be "infinitely" flexible, it's hard to know when a design is "good enough".๐Ÿฅบ

When is a mockup "good enough"? ๐Ÿค”

#startups #buildinpublic #startup #reactnative #indiedev
Thinking about pricing for @MediaNotesApp subscription:

$1/month
$8/year
$25/lifetime

Some people say $1/month is too low for any app, no matter the stage. I think it's adequate but maybe it's just me being cheap ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿค”

#startups #buildinpublic #reactnative
I was looking for examples of paywall designs to gain inspiration from and ran into paywallscreens.com. The internet is undefeated in many ways. Great collection.

#buildinpublic #startups #startup
@RevenueCat integration looking promising. Full steam ahead. Trying to launch @MediaNotesApp v2 in 2 months or less.

#shipit #buildinpublic #startups
I have a whale ๐Ÿ‹ of a potential customer ๐Ÿซฑ๐Ÿพโ€๐Ÿซฒ๐Ÿผ right under my nose ๐Ÿ‘ƒ๐Ÿพ that I already have a good working relationship๐Ÿซฐ๐Ÿพ with and didn't even put 2 and 2 together until now๐Ÿ’ก

I have no choice but to get off my ass and out of hiatus.

Finding the balance between making a good first impression and getting something in front of users is somewhat challenging.

Currently adding a splash screen for @MediaNotesApp. Is it needed, no. But you only get 1 first impression.

#buildinpublic
The harder you work the more you get done,
The more you get done the more experience you gain,
The more experienced you are the more likely you are to recognize opportunity and be equipped to tackle it.

#GetToWork #HeadsDown #buildinpublic
I took about a month or so off to refocus, not to mention I fried my computer ๐Ÿ™„. Invested in a powerhouse of a machine for development, gaming, and productivity.

Getting all my tools installed again and getting back to work.

#buildinpublic
Why am I drinking caffeine at midnight? One more @MediaNotesApp update before my 2 weeks of PTO ends and I go back working for The Man tomorrow. What could go wrong there lol ๐Ÿ˜…

#buildinpublic #entrepreneurlife
Good docs has the vision, basic usage, ALL options (props, params, etc.), normal use cases, non-standard use cases (ex. since we manipulate X technically Y is possible although it's not our goal), well organized, and comes with example apps.
