Time for Blogging?

Posted 14 February 2009

It’s been an embarrassingly long time since I’ve posted here. I have lots of things running around in my head that I want to blog about, but it’s been hard to find the time for it. But I like to write, and I appreciate any readers I may have out there, so I’m resolved to get back to it.

What has made it most challenging is that I’m up to my eyeballs in running Webvanta, the startup I cofounded with Christopher Haupt. Startups are always all-consuming, and the current economic climate has made it even more so because of the difficulty of raising capital.

We have managed to raise a modest amount of capital, but it’s been very time consuming, and it’s not enough for us to get out of bootstrapping mode. So my time is split between ongoing fundraising, growing the business, and doing contract work as part of our bootstrapping process. It’s fun, but exhausting.
