Since we started building bloggie, we decided to make it a point to write a summary every month. It serves as a reality check for ourselves as it gives a good visualization of what we've accomplished so far.

2 months have passed since the last time we made summary #2. Spring is already here, and sakura is blooming in Japan! It's time to write another summary. ✍️

Launching quick vs. continue building?

Having the correct idea is crucial, but it is just the beginning of a journey. Making it into a reality is the tough part. After building bloggie.io for around 4 months, it has transformed from a concept to a product with a name. We can now sign up and actually use it. We start to have a good feeling about bloggie! 😄

Up to now, we have been busy building the product. However, it's easy to fall into the trap of building a product that nobody wants, so it's important to get the product out quickly to potential users to validate our idea.

As a counter-argument, if we launch it too quickly when the core of the product is not polished enough, we couldn't validate if our idea is bad or if our implementation is bad. There is no absolute way to find out if we should launch it quicker or to continue adding more features.

In the end, we decided to launch it as soon as we have the following feature properly completed:


To sum it up

There are a lot going on in bloggie.io as well as our lives, but we certainly enjoy building this, and we will continue to grow this into a solid blogging platform catered for software developers.

Bloggie.io is currently still in beta, but you are already able to sign up from our home page, we currently provide 2 ways of registration:
