I'm posting these on Twitter and my blog (https://bryansmith.io/Interweave-Progress-Reports-Build-In-Public) but I'm sharing them in full here. Why? Because this is a great community and your feedback rocks.
I'm calling this week the "Back to Basics" week. Code wise I didn't move the needle like I wanted to, BUT look at the good and the bad below. I think that's an okay trade-off. But I didn't finish off the Evidence Vault, close but not quite, just one last dumb bug.
That said I did get 2 out of 3 of my "Next Week" done. Feels good with shorter hours.
Also this week I focused big on audience building and I think it's showing (check out the stats). Love of words written, lots of engagement on Twitter (and now on Indie Hackers) and you can see the needle moving.
Finally, ❤️ Shout out to all the makers who have a loved one by their side. My wife is an all-star. She knows I need to make things and has always been patient and loving. I consider myself blessed that she's in my life.
The Good, the Bad, the Ugly
Good: Hiring the contractor paid off big time. The code I needed is already done for my editor modification. Plus he did it way better than I would have done. Trading some 💰 for something I "could" do, but frankly I don't need to do is quite nice.
Bad: I'm not really sure there was any bad this week, other than what I said above. I don't know React as well as I need to now. But I have a great resource by Dave Ceddia called Pure React that's teaching me what I know (mostly I got hung up on not knowing the React life cycle like I need to).
