For as long as I can remember, I've been the type of person that comes up with at least a couple of project ideas a day, maybe starts a few projects a year, and usually finishes none.
Of all the things I tried, building in public is the one that's actually helping me break out of that loop.
Over the past few years, the indie hacker community (with indie hacker being just a fancy name for boostrapped entrepreneur) has embraced the building in public label, with an obvious benefit:
They get to receive early feedback from (hopefully) real users, and grow a community while they build their products.
I'm not an indie hacker, but I started learning and building projects in public in September 2022 and 8 months into it (this is May 8, 2023), I've made more progress and built more projects than ever before.
Building in public has also brought in an unexpected benefit: A community of like-minded people that bring insights, feedback, and encouragement.
From time to time, I'll be sharing some of those insights and stories here and in my blog.
