Founder’s Diary #5 – Warsaw and a friend’s website

Another typical week, with one difference this time… the last couple of days I spent travelling. In Warsaw, to be more specific.

February 15th, 2016

Monday after Valentine’s Day. I didn’t want to wake up too early. I preferred to sleep a little bit longer (come on, all of us are a bit lazy from time to time).

Later on – lots of small things to do at PayLane. I’ve also published a new blog post on karolzielinski.pl.

In the afternoon, last summary meeting of infoShare Academy course. Some talks with potential employees there.

In the evening, Seth’s book again.

February 16th, 2016

I woke up a little bit earlier today, so I could go to the gym before the rest of my family wake up.

During the day… lots of small things to do at PayLane, meeting at the notary, some accountancy things to take care of regarding my charity project #dladzieciakow. I’ve also published a new blog post on Across the Board blog.

In the evening, Seth’s book again.

February 17th, 2016

I didn’t even try to wake up early (I was eating late at night, so I was sure that I wouldn’t be able to wake up early next day).

In the morning, I’ve found that something was wrong with Squidility (queues with posts’ URLs didn’t work properly). I had to fix it as soon as possible. One hour of work at Squidility, before going to PayLane’s office.

During the day – lots of small things to do and a few meetings with my colleagues. I had to also write a few new internal procedures for PayLane. I don’t like such work, but it had to be done :/

I’ve also published a new blog post on karolzielinski.com.

Didn’t work at all during the evening. Just resting.

February 18th, 2016

In the morning, I found that something was wrong with Squidility again. There were:

  • some issues with URLs which include some strange chars (e.g. emoji);
  • some problems with Business Insider website (we couldn’t fetch information about their content, because of some technical issues on their servers);
  • some problems with Twitter API (we reached their API limits, so couldn’t fetch any more data from their systems).

3 hours of work.

For the rest of the day – content day.

In the afternoon, I published a new blog post on Squidility blog. At last! I didn’t publish anything there for a really long time. In this blog post I explain why I had such a long break there.

In the evening, I went to Warsaw. After 4 hours of driving a car, I was there.

February 19th, 2016

I knew it was going to be a long day. But I didn’t know how long.

Meetings with PayLane’s potential customers and partners during the whole day. Intensive and tiring day, but it was worth it. Great meetings.

I’m staying for a night at my friends’ place in Warsaw. For the whole evening and night, I was helping my friend to build his website. At 4AM I went to bed. 21 hours without sleep. That was a really long day.

February 20th, 2016

We didn’t finish the whole website yesterday, so I’ve decided to stay a little bit longer in Warsaw to finish it.

We were working on this website for the whole day and evening. I went to bed at about 2AM. Again about 18 hours without sleep (almost all of that working).

February 21th, 2016

We’ve finished the website, so it’s time to come back home.

In the morning, I had breakfast with my friends in a really nice restaurant in Warsaw. Later on, I came back home. 4 hours of driving a car and I got back to Gdynia again.

Resting for the rest of the day.

Btw. You can follow my founder’s journey at Snapchat. I put a lot of stuff there. My nickname: karolzielinski
