I am pretty new to the whole world of bootstrapping and indiebusiness and don't really know anyone doing this kind of stuff. I would love to get to know someone, who shares those interests to exchange ideas, maybe check each others products and give tips and advices :)

I think you've come to the right place. What ideas do you have at the moment for projects to work on?

@abadesi I pretty much finished my last idea. I am in the pre-launch phase, where I want to make some smaller things more refined, especially the mobile experience, as most of the people are coming in from mobile. If you want to check it out and maybe give me a tip: https://www.plezzles.com

As Abadesi said, you came to the right place :) I think it's really important to try to build your products as open as possible so others can provide you inputs during your journey. But make sure that in the end, you make your own decisions as (probably) you are the one who bests knows the problem you are trying to solve. Add goals to your maker profile, so others will see what you are working on, follow other makers, share your questions in discussions (just like you did), etc. I was trying to test plezzles.com but it doesn't seem to work at the moment. Let me know when it's available again, I would love to take a look at it.

@feriforgacs it's not working o.O It should be... When I visit the page it works. What does it say? Thanks for the kind words. Yeah I need and want to start to learn and practice interacting with the community. I already added some goals, but I will try to keep doing that in the future

Building plinkhq.com and more
@vitabenes @bjornrave couldn't agree more - I have been sharing milestones there for Plink (which launched today on PH here https://meow.ph/plink). Have found both PH and IH podcasts very helpful re: insights and inspiration for bootstrappers.

Building plinkhq.com and more
@vitabenes @bjornrave @bjoern_rave so hard to just choose one, honestly - they're all consistently great. Chats with @_rchase_ on IH podcast (plinkhq.com/i/1206165808) recently and SaaS Podcast with Omer (https://plinkhq.com/i/916927819) were both great, bet you'd like it.

@courtneyruth The project I am working on right now is: https://www.plezzles.com . But I still need to do some finishing touches before it's ready to be officially launched :)
Co-Founder of KOYA
@bjoern_rave Awesome concept! It is looking good! Question, when I looked at the map I couldn't see any events. It might be helpful to have sample events or show people what it could look like somehow to get them excited about adding events.
