Hey fellow bootstrappers!
I am pursuing my dream to help ease the end-user frustration during system issues and outages. Status.io builds on my experience of running highly scalable and available systems, along with my addiction to writing code and breaking stuff.
I created my first status page in 1994 for a dial-up BBS that I sysop’d. Shortly after that I took what I thought was the safe route in life. Fear of failing and caring what other people thought set me back ~20 years. Fuck it, I’m in the game now and will go homeless for this project if need be. Many of your stories have really helped me build the confidence to do it.
I launched 6 months ago and still feel the product is in early beta.
I haven’t had time to focus on any marketing or sales, but a bunch of customers found us and love us. Our recurring revenue has been doubling monthly.
Really looking forward to being a part of the community.
