Sunday Coffee ☕️ #0042

April 4, 2021

☀️ Good morning

Sankalp and I had a long discussion over beers yesterday. It was about having finite time and resources for our weekend projects, which means we have to cut down on some and prioritize.

While we haven't yet decided which to focus on or cut down, we did decide that for every 4 weeks (month), we will only have 1 focus for the weekend.

It could be growing

  • our respective blogs, or
  • a project that we are working on together (DailyHabits), or
  • individual projects (like Programmatic SEO for me)

The focus for April is to see how far we can take DailyHabits in our limited time.

To that extent, I started focusing on content via programmatic SEO principles. This nicely doubles up as content for my course (Programmatic SEO v2, coming in Q2 2021). Whereas Sankalp shipped a small update to the app - reordering habits.

I got obsessed with Japanese food after watching Terrace House 2 years ago. Been waiting to visit ever since.

It's 🌸 cherry blossom season in Japan, which means it's really pretty over there right now.
