Hello Game Devs,
 
After seeing so many other posts similar to this I thought I should make my own thread about it. Yesterday I quit my job to go full time indie. Currently, my 1st game is being finished in C/C++, but I plan to complete many more projects using Game Maker in the near future. I wrote a blog post here.
 
Please read it and let me know what you think.
 
I look for your wisdom and support in this huge life endeavor.

Why? I'd think it should be easy to subscribe.

I'm following your progress here, hoping to hear more as I'm in a similar position; quit my job in June to bootstrap my company.

It essentially takes same time to sign up for a newsletter as to sign up for a web-site. Both require e-mail and e-mail activation...
