The Year of More: A week or so in

Probably about time for an update on The Year of More I reckon.

By my count it’s been about a week since the year started. My count is wrong. It’s almost been two..

Nerd alert! This is a bit of a technical ramble.
Have a look at the Easy Reading tag for writing a little less tech

First up I bought a website.. but I’ve already written about that. Also I forgot to actually make the post live. Absolute muppet.

So far what I’ve done with Hosted is deleted it a few times. Not even joking. My first mistake was focusing on the frontend, a great way to get myself stuck in the weeds, I’m not a frontend guy.. Stick that on the laterbase. I’ll probably just buy a theme or something and cram it in until I can afford to pay someone to do it properly.

Then I tried making it using Laravel Spark. Realised that was also a pretty frontend-heavy task, needing to figure out how Vue works. Scrapped it. Now I’m just using the tailwindcss preset so that I can just whip something up that works and focus on the backend.

As I wrote on the Hosted Blog -> Removing Resistance I spent a bit of time writing something that handles that $1 trial thing I was planning.. Then deleted that too.

So where am I almost 2 weeks in? Well on the test build you can create a podcast now. Dealing with episodes up next. Project planning and time estimating is fun. I should have used the Taskimator..

For your amusement I’ve somehow fallen into using flow charts for dev planning on this one. See attached.

Fancy an email update instead of having to pop back here every time?

Heya! I’m Cohan and I make websites. I also administer Linux servers and do other nerdy good stuff like that.
My real love is writing though, this here’s my outlet for that.
