  1. I sorta took down my server today. Oops 😁 I setup a Laravel queue worker before I had the database tables in place first and it just took the whole thing down. Like, MySQL would just screech to a halt before finally completely crashing. It’s fixed now though.

  2. I took my GS off road today. It was fun until it overheated. I think my fan has gone bad on it so I will need to diagnose it and fix it.

  3. I spent most of the day working on integrating Stripe into Sublime Blogs for subscription billing. I have decided to refactor the pricing model a bit; now offering a subscription that gives a user more storage across all of their sites and not just tied directly to one specific site.

  4. I’m continuing work on Sublime Blogs. Yesterday I spent a while working on the marketing site and getting feedback from other developers. I also setup a form where you can subscribe to get an email when I launch the product; which should hopefully be in the next two months or so.

    I have migrated my site over from Micro.blog to a static site built with Jigsaw, hosted on Netlify, with deploys being trigger and blog posts being pulled in from Sublime Blogs.

  5. I setup a Paddle.com account for Sublime Blogs, but they rejected me. They said my product was deemed high risk. Maybe it was because I did not have my website done yet? Anyways… its on to Stripe now; which was actually much easier to setup. You lost my business Paddle.

  6. Today I was listening to the podcast, North Meets South, and Jake and Michael were discussing the script Jake created to randomly generate a fake wordle emoji grid. The goal was to be able to, everyday, share a random result with your friends to get in on the social aspect of wordle without actually playing it.

    Jake mentioned that he was going to rewrite it in JavaScript and put it online, but he decided it was not worth the time. Now I’m considering taking on the challenge of bringing it to the web myself.

    Is it worth getting a domain name for it or should I just use a subdomain of lukebouch.com?

  7. I got tired of stuggling learning VueJS and Nuxt, so I decided to build out my new blog in Jigsaw. It is almost done and I will be moving away from Micro.blog in favor of my new headless cms I’m working on (Sublime blogs).

    I have nothing against Micro.blog but I’m a control freek and I want complete control over the frontend using my static site generator of choice. I’m also trying to cut down on costs.

  8. Today I started working on the marketing site/landing page for Sublime Blogs. I used tailwindui for the navigation and hero section and it turned out pretty good in my opinion. The marketing may need some work but it is a start.

  9. I just spent about four hours working on Sublime Blogs and using the API to build out my blog with NuxtJS. I have been primarily focusing on building out the API. It is coming together well so far.
