Quitting my job to run kottke.org full-time is possibly the dumbest economic decision I’ve ever made in my life. This undertaking so isn’t about the money. (I’m gonna link to Ludicorp’s about page here because their corporate philosophy matches well with my philosophy in approaching this.) At best, my goal is to make about 1/3 to 1/2 of my former yearly salary to support my efforts here for a year. I have no idea whether this goal is even remotely achievable…only the hope that it is and the desire to make it happen. Like I said, dumb economic decision.
