Next blog post I will start without saying sorry except for this one. Sorry there has not been much in the way of communication about hivemined. I am here and glad to tell you it’s not dead and nearing awesomeness.
Basically from Nov 30 till Jan 2. There was no work done on hive. For this I am disappointed. Although some people where using it. But I am here to explain the serval factors as to why.
My real job kicked up and had some important deadlines to meet. With putting in the extra time with that and working on hive I got scared of burnout. I enjoy my free time and wouldn’t want to dread looking at hive and what needed done. So it got put on the back burner.
I helped my girlfriend move across the county to live here.
Then there was holidays time, you know shopping hanging out with friends and fam. The normal.
Also a huge factor was I let the pressure of “it has to be perfect” , “WHERE IS IT WHY ARE YOU NOT DONE YET”, and “You just gonna squander this press and not release something” get to me. Hard. Thus causing anxiety anytime I looked at the code base. We’ll I got over most of that I still feel pressure because I want it to be amazing and when you use it I want you to slip right back in that old greater groove and share and comment your face off.
I want to set a deadline and say “hey, by end of jan I want to do a twitter/tumblr/email/ect.. invite.” but the pressure of that will get to me and I will put it off till last min and miss that deadline. So going to take the valve games approach and say it’s ready when it’s ready. All I can ask is that you stick with me, have some patience. It’s awesome and you are gonna love it. Just follow on tumblr, twitter or sign up for email or whatever you can.
I can promise you this at least, I am not gonna drop this or leave it. I am too far invested and want this to be real too badly.
On a good note, on the 2nd I wrote comment view and it is working and slick as shit. There was also some enhancements to the share bookmarklet and it is also even more awesome.
Been using trello to track bugs and ideas. Even post a screen shot below so you can see what is left. To inspire hope.
