Hit 2500 Subscribers

Shiva Prabhakaran @shv_prbhkrn

Just a couple of hours ago, I hit 2500 subscribers on my models.substack.com newsletter.

The primary sources are:

  1. Product Hunt launch
  2. Hacker News launch
  3. Subreddits around rational thinking and mental models.

During this time, the newsletter also managed to crack into the top 5 free publications on Substack: https://www.indiehackers.com/product/models/broke-into-top-5-publishers-list-on-substack--MBrhkncbY_cfR-ESGB-

And before that one of the posts also went viral on Hacker News: https://www.indiehackers.com/product/models/page-1-on-hacker-news--MB3Ja3VoL9OFvM4Eo9h

If you have questions or queries regarding how it happened and the process behind it, Tweet at me on twitter.com/shv_prbhkrn and I'll try my best to answer them.

The IH community throughout this time has been great.

So thank you!

    Congrats! How are you planning to monetize this? Or is that even a goal?
