You know, Post Things may never make it to become an actual “product” that I create. But it sure is fun playing DIY Social Network in my free time.
#ProductUpdate: Also decided to start hiding the Like counts for posts. Just felt like a good idea.
#ProductUpdate: Widened the theme a bit today. What does everybody think?
People who hold grudges are crippling their mental health.
#FYI GoDaddy’s hosting is the absolute worst and their support is about the same.
#UnpopularOpinion: Primal weapons are the dumbest thing Fortnite has ever done.
Look, I’m no #Bitcoin pro… but I am savvy enough to look at the past 5 years and realize that this dip is nothing.
Dummies be selling. Smarties be HODLing. 😎
It is abundantly clear that one of the biggest things lacking in our culture today is grace.
Elon Musk says something negative about #Bitcoin. The market dips… all of a sudden it’s a “crypto crash”…
Roll back the clocks 1yr ago dummies… still way ahead.
In case you were wondering… this is my favorite GIF of all time:
I honestly don’t know why there’s still so much hate in the #WordPress community for the Gutenberg editor. I’ve fully adopted it and love how it allows me to build pages without:
- huge amounts of custom dev work
- bulky, bloated page editors
This is still one of the best gifs of all time:
Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there!

Some people are so deep in their knowledge they are useless at helping others in the early stages. The "basics" to them are self evident, and therefore don’t have the ability to even convey them.
What did you do this weekend?
Me… #HotOnes challenge.
Todays #QuestionOfTheDay: if you could be dropped into the world of any movie to live in, what would you choose?
Providence. 2mo ago I was upset that a partnership fell through. Yesterday a door opened to an investor that couldn’t be a better fit for what I’m trying to accomplish. "Kindred spirits" is the word he used. This would have never happened if that 1st partnership went through.

You’re welcome. 😜
New feature: Logout link shows when you hover over your name in the top menu. 🙌
Small touch, but helpful. #features
What a day. Lots of great things happening. #BuildingAStartup is hard, but man is it rewarding.
You have to dig through the crud to unearth the gold.
Some #features I think this project is missing that are crucial to Twitter (but not necessarily vital to a small project like this):
- Ability to Follow/Unfollow other users
- Public Profile pages
- Private messaging
Not deal breakers, IMO.
