At a happy place

For the past 3 months I have been working on a side project. It is called ‘At a happy place‘. Here is the link to it, athappyplace.

The story behind this project goes on to my love for travelling and strangely more so of reading about travelling. I wanted to build a platform where folks who like writing can share their stories and who like reading can enjoy these stories.

But then there are already tons of blogs out there with this information. Yes, there are. And that is the problem. All those blogs and ’10 places to see in India’ kind-ish posts are not enjoyable to read.

I want people to write about the places they loved, the one they never wanted to leave. I want people to write about their ‘Happy Places’ which genuinely made them happy, and not because it was one of the must visit place. And such posts make for a good reading too.

I wanted to build a product which is obviously dead simple to use, but also which reflects all those things I have mentioned and I think I have achieved that with athappyplace.

The project is open-source. Here is the codebase.
Would love to hear your thoughts…!!!

Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste.
