    Wow ! this an amazing story, and I'm pretty sure there is more to it than just the 6 months you've written about.

    Well done ! 👍

      Haha, cheers Anas! And, yup - there was a bunch of time before those 6 months spent trying and failing on other projects 😊

    @jhowarth15 Amazing story and very inspirational. May I ask what's the stack used to build the latest version of TrendingTopics? I ask because I have a project (The Problemeter) that I'd like to build out into an app but as a non-coder I'm struggling. Thanks again for the great share.

      Cheers Marc! Yeah I coded Exploding Topics with NextJS, NodeJS and MongoDB.

      But if you're a no-coder looking to get Problemeter going you should look into @bentossell's MakerPad :)

    I saw the article on HN also a couple of months back. Nice read and congrats. However, I do feel you sold too early. JMHO tho!

      Ahah perhaps! But I think both Brian and I got a great deal and I still get to work on the project too :)
