Have you ever felt frustrated when you can't find those old bookmarks you saved? It's like they vanish into thin air, and it drives me crazy! And don't even get me started on links disappearing and valuable content going offline. It's such a bummer, especially when it includes valuable videos or audios like podcasts.
I found myself longing for a platform where I could easily bookmark stuff and receive a weekly email reminder to read it at my convenience. Sometimes, life gets busy, and it's not always possible to dive into things right away. That's why having a gentle nudge to revisit saved articles is so helpful. Plus, I love being able to go back and rediscover great pieces from the past while decluttering outdated content.
One thing that really grinds my gears is manually adding tags. Seriously, we went to the moon, we should be able to extract tags automatically. And why stop there? I want to extract as much details as possible, stuff like author name, publish date, likes count, and content summary. More details means easier search and extraction later.
Yeah, let's talk about search. I wanted a robust full-text search capabilities and the ability to search by tags, just like how Gmail search works. No more struggling to locate that one crucial resource amidst the clutter!
I tried a few tools out there, but none of them quite hit the mark. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and build a solution that meets all these requirements. Currently, I'm using it myself, but it's not quite ready to be publicly shared. However, I'm opening up a beta wait list for those who are interested in this idea and want to give it a try.
