Burnt out Product Hunt launch

Daniel Palmer @danp

So today, having recently finished building Makerwing and feeling quite burnt out - I decided to launch on Product Hunt.

I don't know why; it was a somewhat compulsive decision (after months of pumping out product) and I think it was my brain telling me "I want a clear sign that you should (or shouldn't) keep focusing on this idea".

Rather than plan out meticulously a well orchestrated Product Hunt launch, I wanted to just throw the product out in the wild and see if anybody resonated with it.

As of posting, I'm sitting at #5 for the day, though the day is young. This is cool, and already a better start than I could've hoped for :) If any of y'all want to support the launch, that'd be greatly appreciated!

It's ~1AM Australian time, so I will have to hit the sack soon. I wonder what I'll wake up to!

    I like it, simple focused. Good.

    What would you call projects like makerwing? Is it a saas or a developer tool. I'm trying to understand services like makerwing, with the goal of improving conversion for those services.

    Update! Just over 30 mins left and I'm still sitting in the top 5 :D Any last minute support from indiehackers would be amazing.

      Thanks mate! Appreciate that :) I love Brissie. With my previous startup, we were in an accelerator in Brisbane (Collider) for three months.
