πŸ“² Notes as I go: Follow my mind through the day


I’m going to use Notion to jot my thoughts and post links, quotes, and relevant info that come through my field in a given day. - entry time unknown
I’ll post the note and share it on my personal website. I’m migrating over to Potion.
Reduced Dope Membership price from $5 to $2. - Time unknown
Use Dope to express my subtle observations.
Im stuck in a builders loop atm - 7:03PM
I'm def in a bit of a loop.
I moved beyond the builders loop...sorta 8:35PM
Energetically, it feels like I am moving forward. Im watching tutorials and working my way through thinking about the structure of VLC.
Webflow API documentation - 8:42PM
This is an incredible demonstration. It's not really the step I am at, but sort of. I tend to work in a circular motion.
πŸ₯“ It's time for bacon - 9:08PM
I am obsessed with bacon. Im having bacon and wine. Yep, πŸ₯“and 🍷
It can be overwhelming - 10:02PM
There are so many cool tools that it can turn building into a game of freeze tag, and you're stuck looping around different tools. It's fun to follow curiosity but its important to know when to move on. Not every feature is a benefit.
Huge breakthrough - 10:20PM
Okay, so on the VLC website I've been trying to create a unique CMS member dashboard. I've struggled with knowing how to add attributes to data, but I figured it out and now when you login to the website it takes you to your very own unique dashboard. I also figured out how to hide links and show links based on whether you are signed in or not. Memberstack is really cool. I want to build it all right away, but it feels like it's best to release it sooner than later as an MVP...and I can build iterations in the future.

Task list

Switch my personal website from square space to notion
Reduce Dope Membership price from $5 to $2

Daily Summary:


Whoa...What a day. I feel like I broke through a ceiling. I managed to setup a unique CMS member dashboard that is user friendly. I also figured out how to hide links and I built the site to better reflect it's current functions. All of this is very exciting.
I crated this website today. I bought a domain, purchased a potion.so membership and created this site. I want to be more active building in public and I thought creating a website overlaying Notion was a good way to do that. Now I can make website updates from my phone.
P.s. I added a link to this website so people can drop me a donation if they feel compelled to do so. It's a link to my buy me a coffee (dope membership) widget.
