[2 min blog post] Are you on or off the record?

Hey Pete,

I like the approach you’re taking with the blog post. Here’s my perspective and initial thoughts on it:

  1. The premise of the article is that you can choose to be on/off the record. The thing with twitter is we’re always on the record regardless of whether or not the tweet is deleted. Once its out there, its out there.

  2. I would just paraphrase and clearly outline the pain points and solution. Just easier for the reader to follow.

Re: the product

There’s already a free tool out there with a one time payment. How does your product compete with it?

Thanks for taking the time to read and reply!

On the article — yes I think you're right about the "on/off the record" analogy not being useful enough. May try describing it differently all together. And yes, outline pain points and solution is a good thing for me to work on :)

On the product — There's a few tools that range from open source (gist.github.com/robinsloan/36…), to free (tweetdelete.net) to rather expensive (tweetdeleter.com).

I just figured I'd make a simpler (and more opinionated) product that can be fully set up in 2 clicks and is neither free nor expensive.

Good option! I haven’t used typeform yet but it would fit the bill!

Have you looked at bubble or webflow?

A dream will always triumph over reality, once it is given a chance.

But that's just a landing page builders, if not mistaken?

solo entrepreneurs: do you think it's important for a solo business owner to calculate his or her hourly rate and keep track of it

Don't think it's necessary to keep track of it but it's important knowing how much you're worth.

Don't calculate it based on your 9-5 compensation. The amount you'll derive from that is different than the amount of what actual value you provide and what you're actually worth.
