#buildinpublic = shill in public
*true story; but I'm not mad at it*
Let's face it friends
Day 4 #buildinpublic marathon ..
I did the bad thing and registered waaaay too many domain names..
Day 1 #buildinpublic month sprint.
Ideas and getting started is one of the hardest parts of doing this. What works for me:
1. Stick to what I know & like
2. Dont over commit
3. Try, Test, Validate a lot of things as quickly as possible
Sept is #Buildinpublic month.. (for me)
I'm doing a marathon of building a microstartup, start making a little money then list on @microacquire
from idea to first dollar..

last month a started a service updates.email and it looks like I'm gonna need to pivot this.
1. referral rate conversion is too low
2. customer base might be too small
3. use case is too weak..
