I agree with you that Marc's blog is a fantastic source for anyone who's thinking about starting up a company or for existing startup founders. Atwww.intruders.tv
our approach is a little bit different because we give the founders an opportunity to express themselves and share their successes and failures. Keep up the good work, I've been enjoying your blog since the beginning!
I fully agree with vincent
That IS the best startup blog I have read to date. What I love about him is that he is the last person to mince his words. He goes to extreme lengths to ensure that his experience comes through with the least amount of personal bias attached. In fact, as I write these comments down, I have another tab open with his latest blog feed "The Pmarca Guide to Big Companies, part 1: turnaround!" :-)... Happy Reading and hopefully Happy Minting!
Dharmesh, it has been a while since I last read your blog. Thanks for the references.
As for me, I had to suspend operations of my first startup (ebdex) due to inability of my outsourcing partner to deliver quality software, now provide consultancy to one of my competitors and started the second company with another competitor. And thinking of the third startup. I am also looking at reviving my first startup as a reseller. Do drop in at http://www.manojranaweera.com sometime.
Vincent, thanks for the lead. Will have a look at your site.
I agree about the Marc Anderson blog. It is obviously informed by a wealth of experience and put across in a fascinating style.
We are seeking to do something similar in the UK with ourwww.talkenterprise.co.uk
blog. It is very early days but we all have to start somewhere.
Take a look and offer a comment.
Have a look at businesshackers.com and amazingstartups.com
Those might be good choices.
Dharmesh, love your blog. I started one with some of my experiences as an entrepreneur.. hope you can visit it some time.
I rate your "Business Geek" article to be one of my all time favs. Keep up the good work!
I have been surprised lately with the quality of his postings too. But there are only so much smart things he can say. Reminds me of Mark Cuban with his Success & Motivation series of posts, which were brilliant. Its exactly what I needed to read to get ready for all those nasty horrible lows from the life of entrepreneur.
There are a lot of jewels out there for all entrepreneurs starting up. We're trying to tell our entire story as it unfolds -- from the first steps, to incorporation, branding, chosing a host, and everthing else we think could be useful or interesting. We hope it'll come in handy to all those who are also in the midst of the startup life.
I can't count how many times I found myself in either Kawasaki or Marc's blog - on almost anything startup related.
Great people with great experiences
I'll also throw in my friends blog that I already mentioned as a comment here somewhere but still might be of interest:
I think you are right. I went through it and liked it. Good and simple but with good sources.
I go through several other blogs because I need the advice. Among them I also like http://www.workhomemoney.com because it covers various aspects of startups
