About 2 months ago, I was telling one of my best friends that Openwhyd
would be the first project that I should let go
, if I wanted to rationalise the use of my time across my numerous projects.
A few weeks later, bad news: I’m told that the Whyd company is not gonna pay for its hosting any longer…
For some reason, I could not help but spend even more time migrating Openwhyd to a cheaper server, calling out some friends and users individually to star our Github repo and donate to cover the costs
And, you know what? We succeeded brilliantly! 🍾
We gathered enough donation money to cover 4 months of hosting fees, and the direct and honest email that we sent to our 110k users resulted in some of them offering to help with their time and skills! 🙏
This kind of success story encourages me to keep investing time on this project, and makes me hope of a bright future for Openwhyd.
