What made you get into doing online courses and selling stickers

Wes Bos Ask Me Anything

After some successful blog posts, I had a few publishers ask me to write a book on Sublime Text. I'm pretty business savvy so I quickly realized it was a terrible deal where they pay you peanuts.

So - I decided to write the thing myself. I will detail this more on my Syntax.fm podcast in 2 weeks - it's already recorded.

stickers? - the stickers are a bit of labour of love - I don't make much (it used to be a loss until I figured a few things out!) from them but I do it because it's really fun to make something real and it give me a chance to connect with the people who take my courses.

Ah cool. I'll keep an eye out for the podcast. Love syntax.fm podcasts.

As for the stickers. Glad you figured out a way to make money from them. They look lovely on my laptop
