The upside of small side projects

Great advice for side projects from Justin Duke, creator of Buttondown:

“If you are going to find a project, I encourage you to find something particularly small and particularly durable (which is to say, does not require constant or near-constant attention), so that you give yourself the ability to take a break from the project for weeks or months while it accumulates interest.”

The luxury of atypical success

I have a bunch of side projects on the go, mostly tiny sites and creative work. I’m trying to keep them both self-contained and self-sustaining.

My hope is to launch them later this year as evergreen resources, and continuously tend to them over time without fussing much about a timely publishing schedule.
