“The world doesn’t need another blogging platform. But I did.”

This morning, Drew Wilson launched his new blogging platform, Buffalo. As someone who sees dozens of new products every day, I immediately drew connections to Medium, Svbtle, Tumblr, and others that no longer exist. Playing devil’s advocate, I asked:

Do we need another blogging platform?

Humbly and thoughtfully, Drew replied with:

Perfect response. ☺

It’s a good reminder that not everything needs to be a business and that it’s OK to simply build for yourself.

I’m sick of armchair entrepreneurs, judging others for simply building. Would you criticize the 16-year-old banging on the drums in his parents’ garage? The music might sound terrible but he’s learning and even more importantly, trying.

Thanks, Drew.
