Two websites every startup founder should be on

Playing with some ideas of images for my own website and social media. Thought I would share a few of the extras here for others to use. Enjoy! by Laura Olsen

Ok, so
 maybe I might be a little biased, because I’m in love. But as a college
 student that has for the past 6 years tried (and failed) to start a
 startup, my discovery of the richness and general awesomeness of Quora
 and Medium has left me reeling.

As
 a young man, experience isn’t my forte, although most of what I’ve
 learned is from experience (failing, for the most part). Of course,
 information was out there to be had, and I searched for it frantically,
 but still, mostly I’d find scraps here or there and would find myself
 with a giant jigsaw puzzle on my hands.

Enter Medium

As a tech guy, I like to follow a few blogs and websites that are about technology (mainly TechCrunch and TheNextWeb, as well as a few local ones), and I had read about Medium, but never really visited the site.

What took me here eventually was, in fact, sheer boredom. I felt like writing a bit and heard that Medium was a great platform for it, so I joined the community.

BEST. DECISION. EVER!

Of
 course, writing here is amazing, but I never expected the amount of
 great, helpful content (especially about the startup life). It became a
 daily must read website (and/or app) immediately.

Next up: Quora

Last week I read a piece about an update that Quora rolled out, and being a stack exchange fan, decided to check it out.

Although there are people who really don’t know how to ask questions, in less than a week I’ve learned more practical information about startups (especially about my country, Brazil, which is nearly impossible to find) then I had in the previous 6 years.

There really is nothing as informative as a good answer to a targeted question.

All this to say, if you have a question about your startup (or a future one), or just want to learn more about it, these are the places to go.
