Launched The Bootstrapped Founder Blog

Arvid Kahl @arvidkahl

The day is finally here. After running FeedbackPanda for two years, we finally sold it in July 2019. Ever since then, I had time to reflect and think about all the things I learned in those two turbulent years.

I decided to finally give back to the community. I decided to launch a blog focussed on bootstrapping, engineering, startups and how to stay sane while doing it. I have lots of stories, thoughts, and experiences to share. A blog is just the right format for that.

With the blog, I am launching a newsletter for bootstrappers. There are so many interesting things happening in our community every week. That alone is worth sharing. It will also keep me committed to releasing a new blog post every single week.

With the launch of https://thebootstrappedfounder.com/, I am releasing a few articles about these topics:

And, of course, a (short) story of how we built FeedbackPanda.

I am looking forward to finally being able to return the favor of telling my story. When we were working on FeedbackPanda, I soaked up all the success and failure stories in IndieHackers, and I learned so much from every single one. I hope that my experiences will help, guide, and inspire other founders on their journey as well.
