How I started a side project to have fun and to learn. Just not to be a serious business

Thanks to the questionnaire of @csallen, I finally wrote about one of my side projects I started in December last year.

Actually, the whole indie hacker vibe made entrepreneurship much more approachable to me. It seems less scary to be a indie hacker, and much more fun, than the whole start-up hype.

And so, I started a project. A project to learn and have fun. And maybe, just maybe, it is gonna be a profitable online business one day...

How about you? Are you super serious for each of the businesses you start?

    I think it's a terrific idea. How many times I searched how was produced this or that?

    Especially in clothing. Sometimes e-commerce don't even know themselves who produce what because there are so many subcontracts.

    Nice post!

      Thank you. Yes, indeed. It is a nightmare. And so difficult for the consumers to make any informed decisions.

    Side projects are a fantastic way to build a portfolio, and provide some awesome conversation opportunities in job interviews. I'm not a big fan of the founder and startup porn that exists out there, so while I take my side projects seriously, I'm much more focused on the bootstrapped, "company of one" mentality than building some major Uber-like organization.

    You do you.

      Indeed. I just started the company of one book. Curious what I will learn. Keeping the company small is very attractive to me.
