Being a Solo Founder of a 24×7 Hosted Web Application.
I love reading Garrett’s articles about Sifter. I’ve kept up with the story since he first went out and it’s been some of the most awesome documentation I’ve read about a company. In his latest article he talks about the stresses involved from taking a side project to a full time gig and doing it all by yourself. ‘Stress’ doesn’t begin to describe what I imagine he felt at certain points, and he does a great job outlining just where those pain points hurt the most.
