trofy was started as an idea I had to allow users to create their own achievements and utilize the underappreciated social integrations that allow you to make clips on many gaming platforms.

June 29, 2020 First time launching a paid product

Yesterday I launched a 'pro' plan for trofy (trofy.io/pro) which marks the first time I've released something people can pay for. I don't expect much but I'm excited to see where I can take it.

My other main project was monetized through affiliate links from amazon which was fitting for that idea, but I wanted to make sure this time I did something more sustainable and didn't require a large amount of users in order to be profitable.

I was also excited to use stripe for the first time as a payment processor which basically had a super easy to follow tutorial and it was done; definitely very developer friendly.

Now it's time to work on providing value to get people to sign up!

June 9, 2020 Launched MVP

Learning from the mistakes of some of my past work, about a month ago I wrote down a list of must have features in order to put my site live.

I decided to force myself into completing those tasks first (and then launching) before I was allowed to do anything else.

I'm pretty happy with where it's at so far even though I have so much more I want to do. It's pretty cool to see an idea I've had in my head for so long appear when I type in the domain :)
