Hello! Here’s a go at that intro thing.
My names Fred. I’m 24 years old, my normal role is in web design & front-end development but I dabble in other areas. For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to build my own website from scratch, I sporadically shoot & edit videos and I’m currently full-time freelance until early 2015 when I’ll be hitting up the employed world again.
Why am I here? For a number of years now (7, to be exact) I’ve been working with @mikeaag. Ever since we started out we’ve had ideas for services & products and have invested a fair amount of time in lots of them but never quite enough to get anything decent out. In fact the only project we did launch was a tiny mic take of a site with a few hidden easter eggs that made us laugh.
Both Mike & I have a passion for side projects, ideas that we think have some potential to someone. Last night we launched our brand new website & latest project, #SixBySix. Our plan is to get good at launching, by taking some of our smaller, more achievable ideas and limiting ourselves to 1 month to take the idea from concept to launch. We’ll take on a new project every month for 6 months and will be blogging about our experiences and hopefully launching the projects on the site too. You can read more about it here.
If you’re at all interested you can follow our progress on twitter, facebook, google+ & via rss. We’ll be posting a monthly newsletter detailing how the month has gone, our tips & tricks for learning to launch and, hopefully, where you can find the launched project. You can signup here.
Looking forward to being a part of this forum.
