Startup Logs 15 - I veered off my path.

I was veered off my path somewhere.

I built something that even I wasn't going to use.

Most apps start out with at least 1 user. My app started with 0.

I was veered off my path somewhere. This was originally supposed to be a freelance writer portfolio generator. That's why it's called Lancer Profile.

Somewhere along the line, I created templates for influencers and graphic designers, and iterated on features for those templates.

If only I had chosen just 1 template for 1 niche and made that really great. Then I'd have something to show a targeted user.

Now I have a bunch of generic websites that aren't specific to anyone and struggle to show anyone because theres no one specific to show.

This startup thing is hard!
