Almost there...

Project Update

Been too long since I've posted an update.  I've been trying to be pretty heads down to crank out the last features, and solidify the current ones, before unleashing this creation on the world.  Things are getting there quite rapidly... should be able to "go live" this week. 

Chain Update

Feels crazy that after a little over three months my first project is almost done.  Well version 1.0 is almost done.  I do have a list of things for version 2.0, heh.

I've been thinking that the next project will be making the project into a business... or at least trying to monetize it as much as possible.  Not sure how well I'll do at that, but I think there are some pretty simple things I can do to try to at least cover hosting costs.

Almost There...

Project Update

Hope I'm not speaking too soon, but it feels like the project is almost feature complete.  At least for the first release.  Have a simple logo created and pretty decent color scheme going.  Got inspiration for the color scheme from ZenHabits.net... black and white feels good for some reason.  Hopefully it won't take away from the stream content.

Still need to test it with different devices, but that shouldn't take too long.  Also, need to do some user testing.  I think the time spent reading up on design has helped quite a bit... this site is definitely better than others I've created, heh.

Will probably have to wait until we get back home to really dive into setting things up.  Since I plan to host it from there to start with, it'll be easier to actually be on the network.

Chain Update

I've been pretty hush hush on this too my immediate family and friends because I read a post by Derek Sivers that talking about doing something statistically increases the chances that you won't go through with it.... kind of goes against the grain a little, but I thought I would give it a try for this project.

Party On!
