So I submitted Growthunt to HackerNews over the weekend, picking Sunday morning (US Time) to unveil my 4 weeks old site.
Here is the result:
5.24K in New Users to site
300+ new subscribers
Was quite an intimidating experience when some users started criticizing the site design and the name of my site (will get into this later!), but overall a very good lesson and of course, the increase in new subscribers. :)
