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!
