[Day 24] Zero to MVP in 30 Days — On Writing on Medium

In this series I’ll validate a new idea. Read about the concept here (Day 0) and the idea here (Day 1).

This is so motivating. There are good and bad sides about continuing this series every day. Since I don’t have a lot about the product to share today, I’ll write about writing. More on the actual thing tomorrow.

Why it’s the best part of this project

This is the one thing that I finish every day. A bit of dopamine every evening.
The feedback to this blog is also in some ways better than the one to the product itself. Talking about the product with people just makes the list of possible features larger, while the feedback from these articles is not negative at all (except one comment I still like very much), which gives me a sense of relief and confirms that writing is worth it.

Why it’s the most exhausting part of this project

It takes a lot of energy to come up with an idea for an article. I try to have a main topic with these every day, but sometimes the work I’ve actually done isn’t exciting, not even mentioning the days at which I couldn’t find time to work on it at all. 
It’s the last bit of work I do every day, so most of the times I’m tired and would rather do other things, like going to bed, or doing things that seem more important.

I made a commitment and I’ll keep it.

The factor about this that really keeps me going is you. It’s amazing that so many people read what I have to say and I don’t want to waste your time with writing uninteresting things, so I at least try to write something worth reading. Thanks so much for your time.

The plan for tomorrow

Only 6 days left! If you’ve already given me your email address, you’ll receive early access to what I’ve been building then.
