Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building.
Not a big cycle overall. Been busy with some new consulting work. This gave me a bit less time for Ymir.
I also took a few days off both weeks. Feeling a bit overwhelmed with everything so decided to work a bit less than usual. This is going to be a shorter email for that reason as well.
You can always view the history of Ymir's product development at https://ymirapp.com/changelog.
The big change this cycle is performance improvements to the CLI. As Patrick can attest, it was a pretty big change.
Me: First deploy with @YmirApp -> 15 min ⏲️ @twigpress : FTFY Me: First deploy -> 30 sec. Thanks Carl!

I also started working on making changes to the dashboard. Some arrows that did nothing are gone. I added a page when you click on a project.
But I'm struggling with my OCD around design issues. It made me very frustrated with what I was using. I was even thinking of hiring someone.
Someone suggested Shuffle so I'm going to check that out this week.
Small marketing week as well. Didn't start my next article. I just did the next video in the Ymir video course.
It's not a big video. In fact, I recorded about 25 minutes of audio and this is just the first few minutes. I think I have enough for at least one more video. Maybe two.
Just didn't have the energy to do it. I also applied to speak at WooSesh. Hoping I'll get in as this would be an actual talk about Ymir a bit.

Feeling a bit overwhelmed with everything this past week or so. These feelings come and go. But right now, I'm feeling it a lot.
I lost a customer I spent a lot of time helping.
Losing a customer you spend a few hours helping is always a gut punch. It's not their fault. But you always hope the time investment will pay off. 😞 Silver lining. Makes the product better.

June ended with a gain of a customer, but I'm on track to lose one or two this month. So still hovering around that plateau of 22-23 customers.
Thus the overwhelmed feeling.
