Lately, I am a guy who sells products to people.

My Ruby deployment class is now open. The number of sales, while small, is not zero. I have run a real launch around it, which I also messed with to add an affiliate "buy this thing and I get paid" email for Marc-Andre Cournoyer's latest Owning Rails class.

I am writing and scheduling these emails slightly in advance rather than exactly when they are emailed to 1300+ people.

I am feeling like I do this for at least part of a living. It'll be awhile before it rivals my day job, naturally. I have a pretty darn good day job.

But it's very freeing to make things and then sell them to people. I am enjoying it.

I will also be happy when the "new product launch" portion of the program is done-for-now. It takes a lot of time. And the second product is far, far easier than the first one.

As a lovely bonus, I am clearly making more sales of my previous book due to the additional attention and blog posts I am giving to the new class. So that's also nice.

I have high hopes for all this. And also a long slog between here and where I want to be. That's progress.
