Yesterday I launched my article on Hacker News and got to the front page! Overall it resulted in 12,725 pageviews and 30 new signups. Here are three lessons I learned:
Refine your website before launching. Make sure to have an article rich in technical info and well explained.
Submit multiple times if you have to. This was my second time submitting attempt in 24h. The first one didn't make it to the front page, but this one did.
Don't pay attention to the haters. There will always be some negative commenters. Ignore them, try not to take it personally, and focus on the positive.
I'm excited for what comes next!
