jason kottke goes microisv with himself

Jason keeps a very nice blog over at He talks alot about NYC, Blogging, the world, web development, etc. He’s the guy who got in a bunch of trouble for posting audio of the final Ken Jennings match on Jeopardy.

Anyway, he’s quit his web design gig and is now attempting to blog full time as a career. He’s currently doing a 3 week fund raising drive and hopes to raise 1/3 to 1/2 half his previous salary. He’s really taking this seriously as anyone starting a business should, he has moved out of his expensive apartment, stopped eating out, and generally cut back on spending.

If your starting a business or thinking of starting one, I suggest you go give it a read. There’s lots to learn from in there.
