I posted this on Twitter a few weeks earlier but I figure I’ll put it here for posterity. I’m going to be launching 12 projects in 12 months.
When I used to be in school, I spent a lot of time building small projects. It’s what gave me the confidence to know I was good at writing code. It was also really fun.
I miss that feeling, so I’m going to launch 12 projects in 12 months, starting this March.

I want to keep learning new things. This gives me a good opportunity to do that. I get to learn new technologies, do something creative, and learn more about marketing products that I make.
I felt myself falling into a regular routine and not making the most of my days, so this is a good way for me to become more productive.
Here are the rules that I set for myself.
I got a Trello board set up with 3-4 good ideas so that gives me enough for 4 months.
For my first month, I built Remote Job Lists. It aggregates remote job listings from the internet in one easy-to-find place and notifies users when a job that is interesting to them gets posted.
