Been riding high all day.
SO. MUCH. GREAT. FEEDBACK.
nice! congrats! Indie Hackers are dominating HN these days! :)
Boom! Way to go. I saw your post on HN before I saw this one and was checking out the site this morning. Looks really cool!
🙌 Ride that wave!
I've been admiring your helpful comments on Indie Hackers for a while now. Glad to hear that SongBox is taking off!
Thanks very much for saying that, it’s appreciated.
Although not sure everyone would describe my comments as helpful lol.
I find them really, really helpful. You're one of the 6 people who are so helpful that I actually follow them on IH. :)
Well I'm honoured. Thank you.
Amazing work! Congrats on success 🙌
Mick, a question: how did you get initial upvotes? Could you please just briefly outline your thoughts on why this post was a success?
This is a good question. I believe it was the openness and transparency of the title.
People are so used to seeing bullshit posts like "$10k MRR 5 minutes after I launched!!!" that I think the realness of mine caught folks attention. My situation of getting to a modest amount of MRR after a lengthy period of time is probably much more relatable to people.
All I did was post and leave. I didn't share the link anywhere at all.
Good for you man. I've seen you work on this for a long time. Nowhere to go but up.
Awesome, you will always remember the first time :)
This is awesome Mick! Both HN and your SongBox journey.
this is awesome. Lots of feedback. Congrats!
Congrats Mick, well deserved. Would love to know what sort of traffic resulted from your position on HN!
Great story @Primer! 🚀
Wow, just impressive. I would love to hear more insights in terms of traffic etc.
I'll do a full rundown probably tomorrow when it all falls away.
Congratulations on the amazing success! 🎉 🎉 Some great feedback in the comments too!
Tough audience in HN : ) Well done!
Good for you Mick! Looks like they appreciated your honesty and your determination.
I'm honestly blown away. Can't believe it.
Hardly any asshole comments either.
