Some people have been mentioning lately that IH mostly has people sharing positive developments, and that there aren't enough shitty occurrences being shared. Because the truth of the matter is this stuff is shitty most of the time for most of us.
I've been working on Pointway for maybe 4 months now? Yeah, it's been mostly development, but I've been trying pretty hard to post updates and stuff here on IH and on HN as well. It's just not so straight forward for beginners like myself. Even with all of the free advice.
Pointway currently has 12 users who don't log in to the app, ever. I just started a blog to potentially help me with SEO. Also because I want Pointway to have an educational aspect to it.
I'm well aware that my main focus right now should likely be finding my target customers. This is a super niche product, though, so it's hard simply because of that. In addition, I'm trying to scratch my own itch, so there are plenty features I want to build out just for myself. But I also want to get feedback before I spend the time.
On one hand I know that people like myself who are credit card "gurus" need something like this, since keeping track of points and stuff is not easy and gets confusing. Spreadsheets aren't great.
On the other hand, I'm sure that others like me have their own system in place and may not want to change it up. So I'm thinking of trying to get this to those who are already interested in becoming more aware of the credit card points game. This way, these users can learn more and grow into "gurus" by using Pointway.
Anyways I know that was long but I thought this kind of post is necessary here. For anyone who feels unmotivated due to crappy outcomes like these, it happens to the best of us! I'm keeping myself motivated and you should too!
