Hello, How are you doing today?
I've been working on my new side project, Letterhive, which is an SEO friendly archive (or a website) for any newsletter. The content is automatically updated as the users send emails to their subscribers, and, it works with any newsletter 🎉.
I don't have much to share at this point. I just bought the domain. As soon as I have a demo up and running, I will share the links.
First steps are to use Letterhive for this newsletter. I'm building for myself initially.
I will write more about how I'm planning, thoughts on pricing, tech choices and so on in the coming weeks. It's going to be exciting.
For this week, we have an article on prioritization, one of the frameworks that helped me in building side projects.
While working on side projects, we don't have much time on our hands to do everything possible.
There will be few things that have to be done in order to move the project forward. There might be some things that would make sense to get done, but not really a must. And, there lie a few tasks that are just a nice to have which don't move the project any further but might delight the user.
Choosing the wrong things to work on will cost you a lot of time.
You will see that you've spent days and weeks working on the project, but haven't the project hasn't progressed. You can't take it live, you can't invite friends to use it, you can't charge people.
This is where proritization helps.
That's all for now!
See you next Tuesday 👋
