#WeekendCoffeeShare: There May Be An App On The Way!
For the past two weeks I have taken Chef & Coffee and Nerds Realm offline for a specific reason. Now I am finally ready to share the great news to share with everyone!
Over the past couple of months I have been toying around with the idea of creating apps for each website. Nothing too major or with a tons of bells and whistles. An app that allows everyone to read the blog posts and articles easier in addition to creating some exclusive content (including giveaways and more) on it. For the most part it has been a mixed bag of easy and complicated moments when learning the logistics of what goes into a self made mobile app.
I can't say for sure who I will be using as the developer platform. However, I will say this... I am so happy that there are basically DIY app programs/companies that exist! I have one friend who owns a business (which will stay non-disclosed), but this friend spent over $100,000 for their app! Of course they are in a completely different industry for me, yet when I heard that I said "heck no (haha)!"
One of the main stumbling blocks that I Have come upon is if each website should have its own app, or should I combine them all into one feed? Once I make a concrete decision with myself on how I want that structure to work out, the rest of the process will be fairly easy. Chef & Coffee and Nerds Realm website's will be back up soon. The app(s) will most likely launch after I move to Denver and get settled in next month.
This whole being 10 employees in one body thing is starting to get a little easier to manage now. Have any of you bloggers created an app for your blog? If yes, who did you use and how did you go about it? If not, do you think it is a good idea to do so at an affordable cost?
