    tookapic is a site that helps you develop a habit of daily photo taking. Last year I decided to start my own photo a day project. I’ve been taking and publishing one photo every day. I have never missed a day for the whole year. I noticed people following, and starting their own projects. Most of them didn't last a week. So I decided to build a site to help them stay motivated. tookapic uses gamification features, such as experience points, photo streak, levels and achievements to keep you going.

    Pixel Revel

    When started, this was just one tumblr theme. One, very simple tumblr theme. I noticed most of the themes out there are just all-in-one, multi purpose, creative blog magazine style template for creative agencies, and mothers. And most of them take weeks to set up. So I started making really simple "plug & play" themes for WordPress and Tumblr. Quite a nice source of passive income.

    Task appnot yet available

    Again, this is just an app I would use. A simple day to day task management app for small teams (2-5 people). Biggest advantage? You create, assign and schedule tasks with a single input field. It literally takes seconds to plan out a day for the whole team.
