After about a month of completely neglecting Place Card Me and letting it be in run and maintain mode, I found some motivation and am excited to work on it again!
I plan to write more about this in the future, but I think I had mentally given up on it, and after thinking longer and harder about it I’ve decided that’s preemptive, so I’m getting back on the place card train. Choo choo!
Here’s a screenshot for posterity.
Goal Report Card
Abbreviated set of goals this week due to expecting not to have a lot of time after freelancing and family time.
Good news is that this is one of the better report cards I’ve had lately. I guess lowered expectations does wonders for grade inflation!
|#||Project / Area||Goal||Grade|
|1||Place cards||One traction effort and one product effort||A|
|2||Writing||Draft something. Anything.||B|
|3||Generate Revenue||Continue pushing / working on freelancing engagements||A|
|4||Family||Spend time with Family||A|
- Traction: running some ads on Pinterest, wrote up a how-to guide and made a fun little promo-image generator. Product: added a bunch of new card templates in partnership with the Budget Savvy Bride.
- Been writing something about monetizing place cards that I’l hopefully be able to ship this week.
- Lots of projects in flight, but so far able to juggle them all ok.
Here was my planned allocation (dropped Chrome and Django since I knew I had a busy week):
|Project||Time||~Hours / Week|
versus the actuals:
Unfortunately not enough granularity in the report to really tell, but the major discrepancy is that I really didn’t spend much time on writing. Everything else was alright.
Next week I’m again hoping to be about 80% “working”, and focusing on place cards, freelancing and writing.
Lot of family/friend time, catching up with all my Boston people, and managed to sneak in a great hike in the White Mountains with some friends/colleagues.
