Don’t feel bad if you’re not being your most productive for a period of time. Sometimes it’s good to slow down a bit or take a break.

In true #buildinpublic spirit, sharing successes & failures…

Last week I did some data cleanup and accidentally deleted two customers’ sites.

I’m on Supabase free plan, so no backups.

Had to restore them manually and ask the affected customers to create new DNS records.

🙈
Seeing a nice uptick in traffic for both Cloakist and Sotion..

✅ Three big items checked off.

👀 This week focusing on some improvements to Notion support.

📤 Almost done implementing email automation for Cloakist

This diagram shows a simplified version. Edge cases, multiple sites in different states, subscription quotas, etc. are also handled.

For this I chose @sidemailio, it's lightweight and has an awesome API

#buildinpublic
Today’s was one of those: “fixing stuff while chatting to customer on web chat” days 😅

Also… transactional email automation is starting to take shape. This will reduce support efforts by at least 1 to 2 days per week 🤖

@consultantrhys @microacquire Thanks Rhys, I’ll me share everything as I go… #buildinpublic style:)
⭐️ 20 Weeks of #buildinpublic
🎯 20 EPIC WEEKS OF #BUILDINPUBLIC UPDATES 🎯

It's been an awesome journey so far. I've learned so much, and met so many cool people.

Every day I'm amazed at what people are building, how they are sharing & helping each other grow.

See my whole 20 week journey here 👇🏻
About one more week left to complete the handover of my newly acquired SaaS.

It's underestimated how much 'tacit' knowledge the seller has. Of both code and business.

I cannot expect to know everything inside out, but I know enough to troubleshoot any issues.
