Need Some Guidance on Website Idea

General Discussion 2 posts 2 voices

  1. Hey all,

    It’s been a long time since I have posted here.

    I am currently a full time WordPress developer (yes, I have come a long way since I was asking beginner questions here). However, while I love my job, my ultimate goal is to build something that is my own (on the side of course – and it can’t conflict with my current job for non-compete reasons). I am not much of a blogger, so I don’t really want a blog, but I do want to create a website or web-app and put test my WordPress skills to the limit.

    The issue I am having is that I cannot come up with an idea. I have the drive and passion to see an idea through, but I think the hardest part is coming up with one.

    Any guidance is appreciated.

    – James

  2. I completely missed your post. Sorry about that.

    Ideas are tough sometimes. Sometimes they’re easy to come by, but you almost never realize which are the good ones and which are the bad ones. Some of my smallest ideas have been the biggest successes and some of my grandest ideas have flopped.

    So, I mostly try to take the philosophy of building something that I personally want to use. That all starts with the basic questions — What problem do I currently have? And, what can I do to fix it?
