Using Fleeting Notes for Seamless Web Access to Obsidian
Just the other day, after having another insightful conversation with a user of Fleeting Notes, I was struck by a revelation. A lot of you might be familiar with the multiple use cases for Fleeting Notes, but what I've come to appreciate is how instrumental the web access for Fleeting Notes can be.
Let me paint a picture for you.
Imagine being at work, restricted to using only the official tools and websites. But an idea hits you or you come across some information you want to quickly add to your personal notes in Obsidian. Now, with most note-taking apps, this might pose a challenge. But here's where Fleeting Notes shines – its web accessibility.
Since Fleeting Notes is available on the web and , it becomes your secret weapon! Need to make a note while at work? Just pop over to the Fleeting Notes web portal, jot down your thoughts, and voilà! Without any fuss, your notes will be waiting for you in Obsidian when you're ready for them.
I was always aware that this could be a potential use case, but it never dawned on me how significant this feature was until that conversation. So, of course, I couldn't keep it to myself. I had to share this with all of you.
Pricing Increase + Personal Update
First and foremost, I wanted to express my gratitude for the constant stream of feedback I've been receiving from many of you. Every conversation, no matter how small, pushes me to enhance Fleeting Notes and shape it to better serve your needs. I'm committed to integrating your feedback at, what feels like, lightning speed. 🚀 Do know that every comment, suggestion, and feedback isn't just acknowledged, but it's also added to my product backlog, ensuring that your voice drives our future development.
Pricing Changes on the Horizon 🌅
Now, onto some housekeeping notes. As of September 1st, there's going to be a slight adjustment in our pricing. The basic plan will see a hike from $2.5/month to $5/month, and the premium plan will jump from $5/month to $10/month.
For all my loyal subscribers out there, breathe easy. This is NOT going to affect you. This new pricing model will only be applicable to newcomers. Your current plan and price will remain locked in as my token of appreciation for your early support.
And hey, if you've been on the fence about upgrading, now might be your best shot before the new pricing comes into effect!
The "Why" Behind the Decision 💭
You might be scratching your head, wondering, "Why the price increase?". Let me pull back the curtain a bit. Currently, I'm navigating the challenging waters of running this business at a loss. My incredible colleague, Gonzalo, has been an unsung hero behind the scenes, tirelessly working to enhance your experience. His commitment is unmatched, and frankly, I haven’t been able to compensate him for the hours he truly deserves. My vision? To have him dedicate his full energy and passion to Fleeting Notes by year's end. To see that dream come to life, I need to secure his financial future.
Although I've experimented with solutions like introducing an annual pricing plan (which, by the way, did bring some relief), the current income still falls short of getting Gonzalo on board full-time. Right now, he's squeezing us into a tight 10-hour slot every month.
A big leap awaits us if we aim to have him work a full 40-hour week. Which is why I'm rolling up my sleeves, ramping up marketing efforts, and planning to reach out to a larger audience through content marketing.
Moreover, I firmly believe that the bedrock of a successful business is its connection with its customers. So, I've been dedicating a significant chunk of my time connecting, listening, and responding to you, the heart and soul of Fleeting Notes.
The Future is Bright 🌟
Every venture, every startup, and every dream undergoes its fair share of ups and downs. And while there are challenges, there's also an excitement about the future. I genuinely believe in the potential of Fleeting Notes and am keen to see how it evolves with all your support.
Stay connected, keep the feedback flowing, and let's build a brighter future for Fleeting Notes together!
