I couldn't be happier right now.
I've been working on www.namy.ai for a while, and yesterday I finally finished making & training an AI model that I was happy with, and deployed it to live. Then I made a small announcement on Twitter (~300 followers) about it.
Some people visited and entered prompts, loitered around, but I didn't see anyone actually buy a domain. "Oh well" I said, I still needed to improve my SEO anyways (barely have done anything on that front😅)
BUT TODAY I log into my dashboard, and I see:
balance: €0.99 EUR
It finally happened!!!!!! My FIRST internet money that I earned on my own!!!!
I know it's not a lot and that I have a long way to go (and just making twitter posts is not sustainable. I need to improve SEO.), but damn does it feel good!
It's definitely validating that someone, somewhere paid money for something you built. Great feeling!
Anyways I just wanted to share this little victory with the community here. Wish you all the best!
