I wanted to create a blog for people like me, who like to manage different projects.

March 24, 2020 Community Finder got on the Producthunt newsletter

Yesterday I was getting a lot of traffic from an unknown place. Then I realized that my discussion where I introduced the Community Finder on Producthunt is featured in their newsletter.

Community Finder how has more than 55 communities featured and around 10 communities submitted for review. So It's going to be fun time!

March 21, 2020 48 communities added to Community Finder

I've added 48 communities to Community Finder. Now it's easier than ever to find a community that fits your personal needs.

Currently, the most overpowering platform for communities is slack and the most popular theme is Marketing.

So if you're looking for the great Marketing community, check out my list! And submit or comment on your favourite communities

March 15, 2020 Launching Community Finder

Hey,

Recently I discovered that I'm part of 6 different communities. They all support and connect with professionals from the industries that I work in.

So I decided to create a Community finder, a place where people can find comminities based on your interests. In my list you can find community by:

  • industry/interests,
  • platform it's running on,
  • membership availabilities.

You can also submit your favorite communities here.

March 3, 2020 Got on the first page of Hackernoon

One of my articles got on the first page of hackernoon!

I can't believe this, but one of my favorite articles that I wrote: "6 Questions Devs Should Ask Interviewers To Discern Culture". Strange thing is that it didn't perform that well before and yesterday I just decided to post on hackernoon, and in a matter of an hour it got on the first page!!!

February 28, 2020 Got 10 emails to review a product.

I recently got a lot of emails to review a product and tell my opinion on it.

I really like getting new products and reviewing them and want to continue the stream of those emails. Also, I was very surprised that a lot of people found me on linkedin although I had no connection to my linkein profile and sent their product for review there.

Should I have a separate section of that kind of content on my blog? Or should I charge for it?

February 19, 2020 100 subscribers without ads and heavy promotion!

Few days ago I hit my biggest milestone so far.

I got 100 subscribers to my newsletter Engineering Growth, without using any ads or paid promotion. It took me 6 months and an article a week to get here

https://agrigoryan.me/newsletter

My open rate is 48%, I'm not tracking the clicks so I don't have any data on that :)

This is huge for me, as I got massive growth only last month. My growth is a sign that doing things with no ads and annoying promotion still has it's place in this oversaturated digital world.

January 18, 2020 Reached 50 subscribers!

I just unlocked a new milestone and reached 50 subscribers for my newsletter "Engineering Growth".

Am I gaining momentum finally? Because last 20 or so I got without any new articles published and additional sharing.

Hope the launch on producthunt Feb 5 will go smoothly.

January 17, 2020 Created PH upcoming page for Engineering Growth

After my first unsuccessful product hunt launch, I picked up the courage to do it again and launch the Engineering Growth newsletter.

You can support me before the launch here on the upcoming page:

January 14, 2020 Added "Strategies" section

First milestone of 2020!!

I've been doing a lot of thinking and decided to separate my personal blog from the newsletter content.

Now I have a new section which is called "Strategies" where I post the growth strategies, automation tricks and etc. Also there I'm going to add preview versions of my newsletter articles and the rest you can read of if you subscribe to the newsletter itself.

I hope this will help me create interest so people would know to which kind of content they are subscribing to.

December 25, 2019 Got my first 600$/month revenue!!

I started my journey as a blogger on August 20th, 2019. It's been a long term journey of mine to start a page where I share my experience and knowledge with detailed step-by-step guides.

During the past 4 months I've gained:

  • 23 subscribers,
  • 200 MAU,
  • 12% retention rate,
  • published 21 articles (as of now 1 more is on the way),
  • got my first paying customer.

I've niched down my content to product analytics and growth, and again rebranded my blog to "Growth Engineering".

Also, I got my first payment as indie hacker and blogger for 1 month of consultation - 600$. Yoohoo!!!!

This was a strange and rollercoaster year, however, I'm very happy and with the journey, I had so far. Looking forward to the rest.

I wanted to create a blog for people like me, who like to manage different projects.
