10K newsletter subscribers!

It took 8 months but here we are—finally reached the arbitrary milestone of 10K subscribers for the Maker Mind newsletter! I'm not sure what I expected would happen (nothing special happened), but I'm super happy nonetheless. The growth has significantly slowed down the past few months but I'm fine with slow and steady.

For those who are curious, my main growth channel by far is Twitter, where most of my traffic comes from. Search traffic is also slowly growing and converts at a higher rate than Twitter traffic. I assume this is because people have a specific need which they want to address, versus casually browsing on Twitter.

Onto 20K!

    Congratulations! 🙌

    Sounds like ads for key search terms might be a good move in the future, given it converts better.
