An update to the progress I am making towards being financially independent and completing my new year's resolution of making my living from my own web applications.

Personal note: So, some big news in terms of the job board. I have come to the decision that SEO is going to be critical in terms of actually getting people to use the site, I am going to make the switch over to NEXT. I do not have a complicated enough app yet in React to make the switch difficult. So I might as well do it now before I get any further. I also now feel that Vercel is the way to go in terms of deployment. That service will auto-scale which will save me a headache. Top that with Redis cloud that should take care of the DB scaling for me, I should be able to set it and forget it. That will give me time to focus on marketing and adding features. The final decision I have made regarding the job board is that I am going to pay someone to design the UI for me. I would like to produce an amazing-looking product, I am not too egotistical to understand my design skills are poor at best.

If you have not checked out the video discussing the basic UI, please do:

Idea 1 - Job Board: Due to santa ana winds in SoCal, where I live, there are more trees in the street than the ground lol. So I have not been able to work on the project for a couple of days. Working as a delivery driver is not fantastic right now, but I do have some time off today and tomorrow, so the grind begins again; this time with NEXT.

Idea 2 - Paid Plugins: Scratched

Idea 3 - SaaS: I have a solid idea for a SaaS company I believe, but will not start on this till my job board is out and functional, even though I'm really excited about it.

Idea 4 - Paid API: Just learned about how you can build an API and market it easily through rapid API. I am thinking that this might be something I want to try.
