I'm making The Cake Pays - or rather, I'm dragging my feet in making The Cake Pays. @harold41 asked me to elaborate on my why. This is one of them.

They always say to make a product that solves one of your own problems. I lead a lovely life and don't feel like I have any problems that can be solved with software. I just need to speak up! Maybe there is something else a bit further down that I'm yet to think of, that will inspire me to work on something new. Nothing has come yet, but I am releasing an article of side project ideas soon.

My closest problem is actually my partner's. She makes cakes for a living and often needs to quote her customers. This tends to be a problem, especially when changing prices, updating costs and offering discounts or deals. Finally, a problem I can help with.

Using this as an opportunity to work on a side project has also allowed me to play around with some new tools, to learn something new I will use for many years to come - Tailwind.

That being said, it's not tools that are important. It's the skills you pick up that are: product management, marketing, design and user experience.

    keep writing. if you're ever short of ideas one day, let us know what tailwind is. i'm also looking forward to seeing your list of side projects.
