Launch Phase 1: Hacker News

I just launched my Excel add-in on Hacker News:

Fortunately my timezone means I now get to go to sleep instead of compulsively hitting the refresh button all day long. :D

I am following a strategy of scheduling posts on different sites, Slack chats, and email lists, with the two main ones being Hacker News and then Product Hunt.

For HN I wrote a post (linked above) about how I built the add-in using web tech, which I hope will be valuable to readers there.

I'm hoping this scheduled approach will mean better traction than previous things I have launched.

Tomorrow is Product Hunt.

Will report back!
