You guys are awesome. Sirix.io / https://github.com/sirixdb/sirix has been on the Hacker News front page (or still is) thanks to a post from you :-) That's so awesome...
Congrats! Once the hype slows down, you can make a "stats" post here about what being on the front page of HN was like :)
There were around 2000 unique visitors today, it's crazy :-)
I now bought a few days on betapage
Epic! That's so awesome. How'd did get on HN? Someone from IH posted there?
Yes Kevin Burton posted :-)
That's great! Do you have plans to monetize Sirix?
Mh not really, but the biggest inspiration currently is Evan You and the Podcast with him here on indiehackers :-) I think it would be a dream getting sponsored, but yeah... I kept adding stuff stuff last years and especially since a year and now it seems I've had some luck. But I don't know how to get users into my community forum to receive feedback.
And if anyone knows, can I somehow set up a newsletter on Github pages / Jekyll?
Perhaps you can look at similar products/technologies to see how they get users? Best of luck :)
