Today marks the 6th episode of my newsletter. Just an hour before it was scheduled to be sent out, I had the 300th subscriber join the list.
The big push came on Monday when Courtland released my episode on the Indie Hackers podcast. The exposure on Twitter really made a difference: people were checking out the blog and signing up to the newsletter in higher numbers than ever before.
Over the last couple of days, I have been very vocal on Twitter about what will be in the newsletter. I bet that helped too.
I'm really happy with how things are going. I still enjoy writing a lot, and the topics are coming up organically.
I'm also working on something much bigger for the blog, so there are a lot of things to look forward to.
Also, in the last four weeks, not a single person has unsubscribed. That is a great indicator that the content I am producing resonates with the readers.
