It's that time again. Haven't posted this in awhile... [Jul. 2nd, 2002|01:55 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Lately I've been completely overwhelmed by all the different things I "should" be working on and how little help I have with all of it.

There's so much to do that I feel guilty starting anywhere, because at any time, 5 other things feel more important. As a result, little is getting done.

I got dozens upon dozens of resumes when I announced in several places that an LJ job was available, but I never really contacted anybody back. And a lot of people were even cool sounding. It's such a pain to find somebody that's both skilled and reliable.

I'm so sick of unreliable, flaky people. Yet it's depressing and lonely working solo.

I'm getting nothing done being mopey about it all, so fuck it, I'll do nothing... well, close to nothing. I'll put 90% of my time into my new site, instead of 10%. So nothing much will get done on LJ (but little is already) but at least something will get done overall.

But what happens when I launch the new site and it's super popular also? Two sites to run?

And I don't think I can even work well on the new site, with everybody bugging me about LJ. Should I just ignore all my email? Shit, I do that already. Reply and tell everybody to screw off?

Ahhhh... so fucking angry. I hate being deadlocked like this. Wish there was an easy answer, but I sure as hell can't find it.

Sell LJ like you did FreeVote. Maybe it'll become bastardized. Maybe it'll become better. Who knows.

But ... you're just a man. You can't do everything. You're gonna get so many E-Mail comments from this post (unless you disabled them... heh, as soon as I saw that option, I thought of you).

Sell LJ. Make a bit of money. Then work on your new project. Development is what you love, not administration. So, develop. Once developed, move on. Fresh soil to plant seed. Or something.

We all love you dearly. You know that.

although I hate saying "sell LJ" (if the new owners fuck this site up like they did freevote... ugh... i'd be... upset)...

but he's right.

and we do love you.

Heh. But you're right, FreeVote is fucked. Mainly because it makes no money because there are no advertisements, and the cost of colo and a sysadmin exceeds it's intake.

I hate popups and popbehinds...
I try to ignore them (with Adsubtract and a PopUpStopper).. But, they *still* annoy me.. Just knowing that one of them *TRIED* to open up on my computer.. maybe I'm hypersensitive, and just can't stand any forms of advertisements anymore..
