|After 10 weeks of very hard work for 3 co-founders and after reading literally hundreds of posts on HN about launching a new idea (and how to do it right), our site Page99Test.com is [hopefully] ready for prime time. It launches in earnest today, October 26th, and I am very excited to first present it to this community.|
It's a very simple (and we hear eye-catching) website that lets new and established writers get immediate, unbiased feedback from readers on their published books and unpublished manuscripts -- all based on a single page (99!).
Other websites you already know about or have likely used that offer a similar 'rate your first impression' experience in different industries include Dribbble.com for graphic design, FiveSecondTest.com for home pages, and HotOrNot.com for photos of people (not so much anymore, but you get the idea).
We've been debating whether or not to submit a YC application, mainly because we're not sure about whether the idea is truly 'big enough' -- and what our eventual revenue model will be. We're hoping to get some feedback here to settle our little internal debate.
Thanks in advance for checking out our labor of love. And thanks for sharing all your tips on how to make it as an entrepreneur.
Applications are open for YC Summer 2019
