Hey taggers, I have stopped being a full time entrepreneur and got a job with a startup that pays the bills: scaling and automations engineer with modernfeed.com, which is being rebranded under a domain which I must not name, at least for the next six weeks.
Confession time: I have not done a lot for patch tag the last two months, other than think and answer emails. (Well, I did a few tweaks to gitit and filestore, which will hopefully pay off eventually here.)
Two months ago is when I decided, I Must Get Paid, and monetizing patch tag was going to take longer than I could wait. Month 1 (June) I spent mainly in new york trying to cobble together a startup that merited enough VC money to live on, with a team that could do it full time. I felt like a scrappy screenplay writer on the mean streets of hollywood (except this was new york) pitching to producer after producer, living in a basement while I reached for my dreams, wheeling and dealing… except that this didn’t have a hollywood ending… I just kind of lost steam and said, enh.
Month 2 (July) I spent hunting for a paying job, bouncing between chicago, san francisco and L.A.
Funny thing, now I actually DO work in hollywood!
Now that I am gainfully employed again, I hope that I will actually be able to start investing some energy into patch tag again, on nights and weekends.
From what I hear, the baby that has been keeping up the other half of the partnership may be approaching the end of the “cry all night” stage as well.
So, we shall see!
