Balancing Content with Growth

Eric Funk @efunkem

After a little delay the next puzzle is ready to go.

I'm realizing I need to shift my focus more from content creation and coding, to driving traffic. This project was a lot of fun to work on when I could just mind my own business and create the interface.

But now success hinges on reaching the right people, growing my email list, and getting more traffic.

I'm far less comfortable with driving this growth than coding the project.

What to work on next? I think my main focus is to write articles for:

  • Reddit posts
  • Hacker News
  • NXTer Magazine
  • Jelurida weekly updates
  • Medium articles
  • More consistent Twitter posts
  • Crossword forums

What other ways could I drive traffic? Not interested in paying for ads at this point...
