Must-have newsletters for bootstrappers?

As the title states 馃榾

I'm asking for newsletters, but if you want to share some other must-have resource (website, podcast, twitter profile...) I'm interested too.

Thanks! 馃檹

      Hey @jp_aulet,

      Thanks for recommending!

      I recently took over the reins from Darren, who did a great job building and nurturing the community.

      We now have a new format for the newsletter, which I've re-branded as "Bootstrapped Digest." It's broken up into two sections -- FROM the Bootstrappers and FOR Bootstrappers -- and I personally curate the content each and every week.

      Just wanted to clear up the details in case anyone was interested in subscribing, but not sure if it's the right fit for their needs.

      Here are the last few issues:

      The next issue goes out later this week, so if you're interested in subscribing you can sign-up at or in the sidebar on

      Happy to field any questions/feedback the IH community might have!

      Maybe a stupid question, but where do you subscribe to the Indie Hackers newsletter? I can't find any link/form on the website.

      1. 2

        I think that If you're signed up for the forum, you're also signed up for the Indie Hackers newsletter (unless you've unsubscribed).

        You should receive a weekly newsletter...
