Hey Everyone! Jason here.
Sorry it’s been so quiet on this blog. The Postmatic Team has had quite a summer.
After the launch of Postmatic 2, Dylan took a much needed month off to hide out in the woods, hunt for grubs, and run up and down mountains. It’s all true except for the grubs. He’s vegan, after all.
Elissa also took a needed break to head to Japan for a whirlwind tour of paper studios and conveyor belt sushi.
Following Dylan’s return in August my life became thoroughly derailed when my wife Denise and I moved our farm and family an hour south to Hartland, Vermont and began our next adventure: running a Bed & Breakfast. The move was difficult on our little ones but now school has started, most of our renovations are done, and things are settling to a new normal. Pro tip: moving stinks, especially when your roots run deep in the community you are leaving. Opening a Bed & Breakfast in a 230 year old house possibly makes up for it, though.
It’s time to take a good look at what comes next for Postmatic. Dylan and I will be spending the rest of the week staying with his family in Bay City, Michigan to take a look at how far we’ve come, and what we should do next. Postmatic has passed the viability test as a bootstraped startup. People love the products and technology. Our customer base is sustainable and happy. There are always lessons to learn from and the one staring us in the face is this: to take this thing to the next level we have to simplify. Maybe a full engagement platform is too much for the average WordPress site. Perhaps we should grow a few arms and release simpler standalone plugins. We’ll be looking at that and more in the coming days and weeks.
Expect to hear more from us soon, including the release of Epoch 2 later this month. I truly hope I find time to wrap up it up soon. It’s so close and so cool.
Keep in touch!
