#title: "ThriftyName: $5 Brand Names" layout: post summary: "I have officially launched an amusing side project that creates brand names for $5 a pop"

It's been a while since I've written anything on this blog, but for good reason - I've been working on a handful of side projects. I plan to drip-feed release these projects over time, but for today I'm announcing ThriftyName.

#What is ThriftyName?

In case this post title wasn't clear enough (or you avoided going to the product site itself) ThriftyName is a place where indie devs, start-ups or entrepreneurs can go to get a custom brand name for just $5.

This "service" started out as an almost gimmicky joke in my head, but once I began building out the main website I realized that this could be quite useful for cash-strapped indies. After all, not all developers love to sit around wasting precious time thinking about product names, when they could use that time to build their product.

If you're really interested in the reasoning behind making this project, check out the official about page on the site itself. I go into a little more depth about my thought process.

#More Side Projects Incoming...

Like I said at the beginning of the post, keep a look out for my other side projects that I'll be rolling out slowing. I'm still not sure of the best "method" to do this (release one every week? every month?) - but I'll figure it out as I go along.

Thanks for reading!
