This week was singularly focused on placecards and it was quite fun.
I expect the coming week to be more of the same, at the end of which I’ll hopefully be at a good point to start thinking about other things again.
Goal Report Card
||Ship placecard MVP
||Ship placecard blog 1 (and 2?)
||Talk to at least one or two brides
- I fell into the classic software estimation trap last week and the MVP is just taking a little longer than I’d hoped. It’s close, but not shipped.
- Three blogs this week, the pitch, the teardown,
and a combined post of both on Hacker Noon.
- Had my first conversations with actual brides-to-be (thanks Katie and Richelle!). Both were very useful and I need to do more of these.
Week 6 time breakdown
I slightly missed my goal of 25 hours on products, though if you count the writing time (which was all placecard-related) then I crushed it.
I worked more this week because I was having fun! Good problems to have.
This week’s hike was the Mowbray Ridge / Knife’s Edge route up Devil’s peak.
It’s a fantastic route to the top of Devil’s peak, the highlight of which is a traverse across a narrow ridge (the Knife’s Edge) with
a completely vertical dropoff on one side, and a not-much-nicer slope to the other.
The drops are hard to capture on camera, so I had to make up for it with my facial expressions.
