Title says it all. I don't really know what my question is, maybe I'm just venting. I feel like I come up with ideas, do some digging only to find not only does a solution already exist, but it works on every device and it's free. How the hell is anyone supposed to make money with anything when all this stuff is out there for free and works well. People are getting so conditioned to having things for free that I don't understand how anyone justifies charging for anything anymore and actually find people willing to pay.
For example, recipes - I use all recipes a lot, but I also find myself googling something and finding a recipe on a some random site, usually a blog. I thought wouldn't it be nice to have something where I could save the recipe itself, strip out all the blog stuff and just save the recipe info, and integrate it with a meal planning and shopping list kinda thing. Well here ya go:
I've come to accept the fact that people have thought of everything and competition isn't a bad thing, and it proves that there's a market already and blah blah. But when the competition you find is always free, what other angle can you possibly go with to make money. Am I missing something? Maybe I'm thinking about the wrong kinds of products.
