The last 8 years I've been busy with a home renovation (worst mistake of my life, but that's another story). I still make big web applications and mobile apps at my day job. But I miss that rush. Seeing the visitor count grow, checking my ad income every day. Getting sponsor deals in my inbox.
However, there is this feeling that the moment is gone for small websites and apps. When I want to find advice or a guide, I go to Youtube. When I want to discuss a certain niche, I just open Reddit. It feels like you need a killer idea, pitch it to investors and hire a 10+ man team.
I feel the strategies for making money online have completely changed. Now people are using Youtube and Facebook to create and share content. But that's the part that never really appealed to me. I want to build the platform and let others use it to share their own content.
I suppose I'm talking more about a trend. The big guys are taking over, and even if there is still a market for smaller websites and apps, it is quickly disappearing.
I'd like to hear your opinions!
