Whenever I'm stuck when trying to design something... 🧱

I ask myself: How would Apple do it? πŸŽπŸ€”

They'd keep it:

βœ… Clean
βœ… Smooth
βœ… Simple

🏁Yet, impressive.

Things usually become much clearer in my head 😊

Founders,

Make sure to regularly check your onboarding flow πŸ‘‡

#buildinpublic
@alexwestco Heroku also supports PHP πŸ₯³

I'll give it a go, just signed up and the onboarding finale took me to a 404 πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Founders, make sure to check your onboarding flow regularly πŸ˜…
Have you ever tried to find an available .com domain with the word "remote" in it?

Good luck πŸ˜…

Even remotepotato .com is taken! πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

It’s my Twitter cake day! πŸŽ‚

Back in 2008 Twitter was not as you know it today, this little birdie has been on an amazing journey since then πŸ•Š

Do you remember when you joined Twitter?

#MyTwitterAnniversary
#buildinpublic
I've joined @ProductHunt! πŸ₯³

User #3889228 - that's a lot of users, well done @rrhoover πŸ‘

Looking forward to discovering new products as well as sharing some of mine in the future πŸš€

Are you on PH too? Drop your link below πŸ‘‡

My goal by the end of 2021 is to ship 1 micro startup.

What's yours? Share with us below πŸ‘‡

From the blog building series (proof in video):

βœ… Dark mode support (I β™₯️ dark mode)
βœ… Timer - it's nice when pages render in < 0.5ms πŸš€

πŸ‘‰ Todo: ReactJS for frontend (one day)

Who knows one of these features might come in handy for a micro startup 🀠

Yesterday:
The twins got sent to the ER due to a "small" breathing problem. They got inhalers and better now.

Today:
I broke my back lifting one of them up.

Remember, keep your back straight when lifting babies or... stuff.

How did your week end?

Do you own a .co domain?

If yes, there are lots of freebies and discounts waiting for you at go.co/members/ πŸš€

Sharing with all fellow makers πŸ™Œ

@alexwestco
@monicalimco
@iamdavidhill

Tag anyone else you know who owns a .co 😊

Thanks @dotCO πŸ™

I can pretty much say the blog build is complete πŸ…

I'm not a big writer though, so expect some challenges ahead in that space ✍️

Tomorrow: πŸš€ onto the *actual* micro startups, and who knows, might re-use a few things from the blog code.

Blog dev update:

βœ… Password resets
βœ… Subscribe in footer
βœ… Security checks, if logged in user changed, log them out etc.
βœ… Account activation
βœ… CRUD categories
βœ… CRUD users
βœ… Logout as POST request

It may not be easy to enter a crowded market.

But if you just try, and keep trying, and get 0.01%…

You suddenly have a $1m+ micro startup.

I’ll try to do it, and build it in public.

I might fail, but if I don’t try then I already failed.

#business #buildinpublic
Go after a big market because if you can capture just 1% of a $10 billion market you may have a $100m+ startup on your hands.
Fun facts about @Apple

Apple's MRR is $30B+
Apple has 7.1M followers
Apple has posted 0 times on Twitter

In the time it took you to read this sentence, Apple made $30k.

And while you processed that, it happened again. 🀯
Building micro startups is all about I/O

⌨️ Input
Minimal - ask users for as little as possible.

πŸ–₯️ Output
Give the users what they're after.
Fast, clean and simple.

🏁 Result?
Everybody happy πŸ₯³

Live long and prosper🀘

Did you know that you can now register domains using @cloudflare?

πŸ… Best thing? They're the "domain registrar with no-markup pricing" - you pay what they pay.

Time to move my ~200 domains.

Yeah, no.

Anything new, yeah.

The progress report is in! πŸ—žοΈ

βœ… I've extended the layout with a nav and footer elements. The nav uses AlpineJS and is fully responsive.
βœ… Added Tailwind via yarn, created tailwind.config.js

RSS feed + SimpleMDE image upload still TBD.

πŸ‘‹ A bit later than usual today, let's continue with the CRUD stuff πŸš€

Why am I building my own blog?

By building your own, you can create *a lot* of reusable code you might need in other apps.

I enjoy crafting things from scratch πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
