Finally got round to finishing my "Best man speech pack"

Having used tailwindCSS for the last month I can see why it’s so popular.


I still prefer styled components πŸ˜…

So far I’ve written 9000 words on how to write and deliver a best man speech.

Basically as much as my dissertation!

What has my life come to πŸ˜‚

How about an app to help podcasters / interviewees improve their public speaking?

Deployed my little micro saas to production today.

Now how the F do I get customers? πŸ˜‚

There must be a better way to do tech tests.

Tech test platform?

Just do a few tech tests once, rather than having to do similar ones for different employers.

Then the platform works as a reverse job board and employers contact you.

Integrating @PaddleHQ today for soapboxer.

Assuming that I’ll actually get some paid users πŸ˜‚

Playing around with staging deployments for soapboxer today using @Railway

I can confirm it’s a joy to use πŸ˜€

Has anyone used Jasper AI for content?

Thinking of smashing about a 100 blogs and seeing if SEO improves πŸ˜…

Last bit of coding before soapboxer MVP is done.

Trying to sort out request authentication with @ClerkDev 🀯

@dagorenouf really hit the nail on the head with insomnia and subconscious stress in this pod.

Great insight into the symptoms of entrepreneurship and general life stress.

Keep up the good work guys πŸ‘

I'm launching a podcast 🀯

Every Friday now, James & I will discuss how we overcome challenges with our startups πŸ’ͺ

First 25min episode is out:
– managing the stress of indie life πŸ§˜β€β™‚οΈ
– project updates πŸ“
– reflections on my most viral meme πŸ€”

Also I cursed a lot πŸ˜…
Feel like paddle has got some way to go until it catches up with Stripes ease of use.

Anyone know of any good terms/privacy policy generators?

Not up for writing one πŸ˜‚

Do any of you indie hackers bother with a staging environment? Or is that crazy.
