One year ago I had just quit my first job as a programmer in an attempt to work on my own ideas and have more control over my life.
I could not have asked for more: in those 10 months, I learnt about indie hacking, became more integrated into the community, launched a free tool for developers that's been having 30k+ page views per month and, after all, I gained the confidence that I am on the right track.
But the time to look for a full-time job and a fixed monthly income arrived. I am now working with a team of talented devs building a tool for easier auth and user management.
This experience has been amazing: the constant impostor syndrome feeling tells me I landed an amazing opportunity to learn from them. It's going better than ever.
"So what's the problem?", you might be asking. Well, I don't seem to find the time or energy for my side projects anymore. This bothers me. And this feels like throwing in the bin what I spent countless hours working on while "on the loose".
I'm slowly putting in a few hours every now and then to keep them going, but it's just so little that I can't even see the progress.
Maybe you've been through the same. Maybe you know how I feel. Anyway, that's just an attempt to get back to talking to you all, and hopefully, finding again the motivation or the road back to indie hacking.
