Reached new unique visitors high

Joe Bloom @joebloom

On this day the website reached 60 unique sessions, as per stats.

It's a mix of sources, but a chunk certainly came from this IndieHackers community after I began participating here.

It's still small numbers, but the graph is going upwards and I want to keep that going. Eyes on my site hopefully means people are using it and like it! I should be able to track that exactly better in the future.

I'm working on increasing visitors and engagement to the site by:

  • Tweeting about my workings (like here on IndieHackers) and shamelessly promoting the site when I add new spots
  • Writing and participating here on IndieHacker, maybe I'll find more Bali nomads who find it useful
  • Started helping answer Bali questions in Reddit communities, whilst mentioning my website if it might be useful to them

I don't have the budget for ads. It's going to be entirely me, solo, promoting the website and getting it in the hands of friends and friends of friends by just talking about it!
