Hello everyone, it’s KP. Welcome to the 3rd edition of “How I Built This In Public“, a special series that features top founders and creators who’re boldly building their projects, startups and creative ventures in public. My intention is to ask them a consistent set of simple questions and distill insights and lessons so we can all learn from their experiments.
For this edition we have Erwin, co-founder of Tailscan - a browser extension for Tailwind CSS. I accidentally came across Erwin’s tweets recently and went down the rabbit hole of his ‘build in public’ content. He shared that he recently surpassed $500 MRR in ~6 months and I felt like his relatively early story would a great case study to showcase right after we published a very mature startup last week (Plausible Analytics that’s making > $100k MRR).
“Hey there! My name is Erwin and I’m building Tailscan, a browser extension for Tailwind CSS. I also have a nomadic lifestyle, and little known fact about me: I can only type with 6 fingers, I never learnt how to type with 10!”
