It’s been over a year since I conceived the idea of developing a desktop blogging application. How time flies when one have fun! In 12 months, it went from just an idea in my head to some code that I tinkered with when I had some free time. From half baked ideas and codes to half working software in January when I was in between jobs. And from software with a bunch of bugs to commercial software with some bugs. And finally now to software that has largely re-written with lots of new features and more to come.
If you told me a year ago that I will be selling my own software, I would have replied that I don’t think I am skilled enough or business savvy enough to do it. I guess one don’t know until one tries! Of course living in the U.S. where having a side job seems to be the norm rather than the exception helps foster my work. I sincerely think that this enterprise won’t have a chance if I were to stay living in the U.K.
Hi Alex, I happened onyour excellent site by reading the credits for Ecto! I’m expecially impressed with your photo album feature, which I discovered is part of TypePad. I feel cheated! I’ve been using MT for a couple of years and now they bring out Typepad but it has this neat photo album feature that I can’t use. Oh woe is me!
Anyway, I’ve added you to my links. I’ll be checking back in from time to time.
