It has been a very busy time for me. My product web site went on the air about 4 weeks ago. The initial responses were overwhelming. It was beyond what I'd hope for. I managed to create a nice base of beta users working with nWire. The main thing missing from my site was the option to actually buy nWire.
The passing week was a race against the clock to get my payment options worked out. I decided to go for PayPal and had to integrate with their system. I finally got everything up and running and the payment options went online on Wednesday evening.
On Thursday morning, I got my first paying customer. That is a call for celebration. It's knowing that you are not the only crazy person who believes in your idea. It's seeing your creation comes to life. Money is a very strong feedback that says: yes, there's value here for me.
The busy times left my blog silent, but I intend to pick it up. I have tons of topics to write about: the new tools I've been using in the past 3 months (Screenflow, TextMate and others), the integration with PayPal, setting up my site and more.
I'm also planning to start using Twitter. You can say I was opposing Twitter for a long time and I'm finally coming around. So, you want to know what I ate for lunch? Probably not. But you'd be happy to know that I ironed out an annoying bug on my site which caused my database connections to drop. I'll let you know when I'll be there.
