I blatantly stole this idea from Chris Brogan. Thanks Chris.
I haven’t clearly articulated what this site is about recently. Even more confusing is the fact that the blog’s focus has shifted a bit from when it first launched. JimLastinger.com is about me and what I do and think about on a daily basis as the CEO and Founder of several bootstrapped startups.
What I Write About
I write about things that I think other bootstrappers and startup founders will get value from. That isn’t always the case, but I like to think that as whole this blog is helpful. I write about a wide variety of topics, but I don’t have a schedule for which topics to write about when. Here’s a sampling of the topics that I’ve written about thus far.
Bootstrapping – I’m passionate about building businesses from the ground up without having to rely on others for funding. I’ve written about bootstrapping many times.
Social Media and Marketing – One of my job duties is handling social media and marketing for my companies, so I’m an omnivore consumer of social media marketing information. Each day I learn a little bit more. I’ll post my progress and learnings here.
Productivity – Being CEO of multiple startups comes with a tremendous workload. I’ve written about how I manage absurdly large workloads in the past and will continue to bring up new ideas and suggestions as I have them.
Finance – Financial management is the most crucial task that a bootstrapped CEO has, so it’s something that I write about frequently.
CustDev and LeanStartup – These started out being the focus of the blog, but I’ve moved in a different direction. These topics interest me greatly, and I use them daily here. I still plan to write about how I apply them to my companies.
