My first public post generated 15,000 impressions!

Hey everyone,

I officially became an indie hacker just four weeks ago. To bookend my previous employment and to start being a more active member in the IH community, I wrote a blog post on my experience and next steps (accessible here).

The result?

  • 15,000+ impressions
  • 55 twitter followers
  • 100+ comments

Here's the breakdown of traffic between all the sites I used:

I was surprised by the results. Goes to show you that it pays to talk about your experience in public.

If any of you are interested about talking about my experience, no-code, or if you want to build in public together, let me know.
