Soft launch + first Medium blog post

JP Hwang @hindsights_io

I'm glad to say that the web app (https://www.hindsights.io) is live, which is very exciting, although we are not taking paid subscriptions yet.

For last week or so I've been working on fine tuning the app to run at acceptable speeds, making the front end more user friendly and trying to figure out what the best way to market this thing would be.

Speaking of marketing, I have published our first blog (https://medium.com/@hindsights/patent-searching-and-analysis-sucks-but-what-if-they-didnt-5bf7f651f04b) on Medium. To start with, I wrote about the "why" of choosing this startup, and plan to post a little about everything, including my personal story, tech used in building the site, and professional journey here.

I've received some good advice here, that for SEO reasons it is preferable to have / host your own blog, but as we don't have any visitors yet I thought I'd get started on Medium, and start to cross-post on my own site slowly.

I have still got a LONG way to go, but I'm excited to be moving forward bit by bit.
