Some time has passed since I got myself riled up and did a very brash thing with the Startup Battlefield 2021 Application. I wanted to put some thoughts here around it as I have found writing helps get me out of my design/development funk. Not that I am in a funk right now, but I’d like things to be a bit crisper than they are.
So my feelings on the entire ordeal are a bit conflicted. On one hand, I “got out of my shell” so to speak and got myself out there. I also posted a bunch of content here on this blog, which is always a plus. Assembling all of that took guts and I am kind of proud of myself for doing that.
On the other hand, I considered that a tremendous waste of time and completely unnecessary. 😅 Especially when you consider that my current schedule doesn’t even have me in public beta until August of next year.
The fear occurs to me that I exposed all of my ideas and give competition a foothold. The other side tells me to get over myself and competition is going to happen anyways. Besides, the information I emitted barely touches the surface of what I have been building.
However, all stated, I probably would not do that again. It took me actually doing it, to land on that judgement. So I suppose, all-in-all, it’s a tie. 🤷♂️
