I have been flip-flopping back and forth on this idea for a while, and would love some feedback on whether peeps would find this valuable
Although I still call my self a "software developer" (and try to code daily), for the last 8 years I have ran a small 5-person agency that I started from the ground up, so my role was really CEO/CTO/CFO/Everything-O. My company focused on delivering high-quality custom software. Not brochure websites, and not Wordpress - our niche was internal business software (or as I like to call it "boring software for boring businesses") - and for a client service company we got very high margins of return.
This year my business was acquired by a larger company which was an amazing result after the time and effort I had poured into it. I have realised I now want to help other developers who want to start their own software agency, or maybe they already have and are looking for hints or advice on certain topics.
So I have started Dev to Agency - a part blog part guidebook for how a full-stack developer can start and successfully run a software development agency, the things to pay attention too (and the things to ignore), and the key-values that I feel helped my business go from nothing, to 7 figures per year, and then to being acquired (if that is a path people would want to take).
I have published my first two posts today, the first is about My small custom software development agency - which gives an overview of what I built and where I think my articles will add value, and also About Dev To Agency that is a rundown of what I hope to achieve.
I have never written a blog before, so it would be fantastic to get some feedback from the IH community, and if there are any developers that this could interest then please subscribe on the website.
