Great post - starting small is more important than most people realize. Just start with something fun, silly, and unassuming! If you get really interested in it, then it will quickly grow anyway - so don't worry about that from the start.
And never be scared to throw it away. If you had fun and/or learned from it, it was definitely worth it. But if your interest fades, throw it away (or put it on hold, which is a little less dramatic) and seek something else to start with
Absolutely! That's one reason I like messing around with new ideas in codesandbox or codepen instead of making a new github repo each time... github repos stick around forever by default! So you always feel bad about that one side project you started 2 years ago that's still in your repo list.... :)
