  1. My side project is my personal blog (www.robertkatai.con) and also i have 2 other blogs (but they are in romanian language) and I try to keep up everyday with them. It’s not a limited time one but I’m working in them everyday to deliver quality content and help others with my articles. I found myself in your points and it’s kind of a good feeling to see that i’m not the only one who is fighting with some problems. Thank man and keep up your side projects! You are doing a great job:)

  2. My side project is Deculture. It´s been running for 4 years now. But I believe it is time to rethink the content and redo the design to better fit the content. I love writting and playing games so Deculture is a good outlet for that. I just need to start doing the right choices with the content and I believe it should grow a lot.

    I have a couple ideas for other side projects, but I am not 100% sure I can finish them so I am uncertain about starting them. I love design, I love good art. A website showing of the great art that has mesmerized me for so long? Sounds like a good idea for a side project.

    Thanks for the tips and this motivational post. I´m thinking about more stuff now.

    As we like to say around TS: “If you can move it an inch, you can move it a mile.” 🙂

    I’ve learned so much from blogging and running my own site that I don’t want to think what my life would have looked like without it. I’ve been doing it for 5+ years, so I’ve definitely found my passion.

    Keep up the great work, and thanks for sharing your insight.

    All the best,
