The journey so far — Look Out Local + Building in Public

This is my first attempt while building a new project on the back of a building in Public. In the past, I have been very closed off with project planning but I have seen the power of #buildingInPublic. I am continuously blown away by the experiences of others that made me want to try it out.

Over the last month, I have been actively posting progress on a new browser extension called Look Out Local.

The Elevator Pitch

I always get so excited about the price on Amazon and then I realize I’m on .com and not .ca 🤦‍♂️

Just an hour ago my wife got duped by, great price but in USD, the .ca was $150 more, we need Look Out Local now!

Here are some recent posts

The extension is coming along nicely, I am just collecting the countries I will be supporting on day one and already planning to localize a handful of others.

(I find having a personal front makes the #buildInPublic but you can always follow JBMDesigns for more details too on when the extension and any other projects will be released)
