What are you working on this week?

I'm focused on wrapping up a freelance project and working on a tool to make it easier to search/archive your Twitter DM's.

And looking forward to the Worldwide meetup this Wednesday of course. We're trying out a new platform this week and a new time (optimized for Europe, Africa, & Asia)

  1. 2
    • Writing our 4th post in our blog on how we used our product to make our product better

    • Ship our Zendesk integration

    • Tweak our Slack notification system

    All these for Ambissues project. We are accepting early access requests

    Working on a client project (design). Still not sure what to try to tackle or how with my "spare" time. My geographic location makes it particular difficult to meet people in person.

    1. 1

      Hope to see you at Worldwide in that case. Also struggling with time management. Or maybe I should call it energy management. I have enough time in the day, but I run out of energy to do more programming/product development for my own projects after working on client projects.

      1. 2

        Have you thought about swapping the order? Working on your personal projects first thing in the day, then working on paid stuff? I think this is what Buffer founded did successfully.

        1. 1

          Yes, though whichever comes after does suffer. I'm a bit more motivated to work on my own projects after a day of working on other's projects than vice versa.

  3. 2

    Working on redesigning the public facing FAQ pages for https://frequently.io 🎉

    1. 2

      Idea: what if your FAQ page was your home page? You'd be showcasing your core offering up front. Also, most FAQ's I see are part of another page, can frequently be used in that way?

      1. 2

        That's a good idea... never thought of doing that!

  4. 2

    Revamping our portfolio section on Draftss.com

  5. 2

    Adding more illustrations to this: https://gallery.manypixels.co

    And currently also trying to improve the response speed of our designers (aiming for 2 hours max!)

  6. 2

    I just sent my first free newsletter. Feels good :)

    Trying out more things to get in front of a relevant audience.

    1. 1

      Nice! What things are you trying?

      1. 2

        Currently, I'm trying to make twitter posts about top books I have on the weekly list.
