I have many pet projects, the trouble is no one uses them. I still don't consider it wasted effort (I blogged about this at

Still, though, it would be awesome to get people using some of my projects - especially my latest one.

Do you have any tips on how to publicize your project so people might actually discover and use it?

Hmmm, I would be causious about making my pet projects open source unless I've been working on the as open source from beginning or so long that they're clean, stable and reusable.

At that point I stop calling then pet project 😉
