Just hit $9k MRR roughly two years after launching.

In between the launch two years ago and now, there has been a pivot, a rebrand, and a whole bunch of new features.

But you know what? In the last few months, going from $6k to $9k MRR, there's much less of a dramatic "startup" story to tell. I've pretty much settled into a routine of:

  • building new landing pages
  • tweaking analytics and conversion goals
  • blogging / tweeting / newslettering about new features
  • improving the marketing site

And that's it.

It feels great. It feels almost like a job, but a really awesome job where there's a sense of stability but also a sense of ownership.

          Classic:

          Hey, I've seen this one!
          What do you mean you've seen this one? It's brand new.

      This is not what I expected to see in IndieHackers. Why there is no explanation? @AlexBuran

      My entire thought process changed completely in two lines. Last line of the post and first comment.

      Is this a case of fake it until you make it? A few people must have noticed that posts about success, with a big number in the title, are more popular on this site.

    I can't fathom why would someone copy an exact post and only change the numbers. If anything, it shows that you're not doing this to provide any value but simply for the clout.
