Since I’ve decided to optimize for happiness instead of income, my indie lab remains my favorite place to work. It’s incredibly fun and rewarding.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about how to move away from Revue, as the service is apparently bound to disappear soon. My current plan is to migrate everything to Ghost, where I already have a paid subscription. As part of the move, I’m working on the Obsidian Publisher plugin, which I intend to use as my main tool to publish content in the coming months. I’m quite slow with the development, but I’m making steady progress. I’m now able to publish and update posts. Next step is to handle image uploads and links handling.
Recently I haven’t updated the Obsidian Starter Kit, but intend to do so in the coming weeks. I have a few ideas for further improvements, notably around automation. I did however update the PKM Library
with additional content.
On the content creation side, I’m really happy with the results I get from cross-posting my content and repurposing it. My plan is to slowly create YouTube videos covering the same content as my articles do. This way, I will be able to please different audiences and different content consumption styles. Some people prefer to read. Others prefer watching videos. And it’s not fixed in time. Sometimes it’s one and other times it’s the other. Publishing those videos should also help me increase my reach, and hopefully fight against my current issue, which is that I rely too much on Twitter as my main communication channel.
Sales-wise, my latest articles have clearly helped me sell more copies of the Obsidian Starter Kit
(33 during the last month), which is kind of cool. But while I’m happy that the sales remain somewhat stable over time, I don’t want to wait until the momentum fades. Instead, I want to move forward with my next ones.
Speaking of which, I’ve started recording a new video for my YouTube channel
. I hope to publish it by the end of the week! Subscribe and stay tuned 🙏
