    1. 1

      You have a few typos on your landing page.

      "discription" instead of "description"

      "mannually" instead of "manually"

      Also you don't have spaces after full stops.

      1. 1

        Thanks for pointing those out

      Hey Harlem,

      Your Happy endings site is pretty cool. Have you considered advertising it on sites which host erotica / let people write erotica? Those people would love to sign up for a site like yours.

      1. 2

        Indeed! And thanks for the suggestion! I'm actually partnering with a local erotica festival this month!

    2. 2

      Side note, I love how you're constantly upgrading and simplifying your standup notes. It's like a UI brain which won't shut off ;)

      1. 2

        That. (Grinning) Or a pathetic attempt to focus.

  4. 3

    01 epic you'd like to complete by the end of April

    • launch a barely useable MVP of http://getfavor.it to beta testers. Will consist of the web app and a chrome extension that allows users easily save links, then start getting feedback from this group of users. Actually have a good chunk of it working right now, but you know what they say ... 10% of any project is what takes 90% of the time

    02 Share what you accomplished yesterday.

    • got the add url modal to load simple data from the url (title, description, image) once the user types it in.

    03 Share what you commit to accomplishing today.

    • need to add better error handling for this feature
    1. 1

      Great to see you back! And the landing page looks great!
