This newsletter started on the premise that writing is thinking. After putting pen to paper daily for the last 3 months (and actually publishing ~ 2 times per week), I’ve realized that bootstrapping it was akin to launching a new product. And after hitting my initial sign-up target, I found that sustaining it required a run the business mindset.
What tool did you ultimately go with to keep all your notes/brainstorms? I want to start taking more notes from books I read this year but haven't found a good tool for it yet.
Really insightful post, and helpful as I consider striking up a public writing project in the near future. I'm curious, how have you evaluated Medium as a writing and publishing platform?
Also, I think the product person in tech is clearly a target persona. As a reader on the services side of tech business, I actually might be a good profile of an adjacent persona - a non-product reader but one who strives to wear the big hat for the company and values the perspective and transferable lessons from a product leader that can help me be a better leader and partner on the GTM side.
