500 Newsletter Subscribers!

Growing constantly day-to-day, the Bootstrapped Founder newsletter has gathered an audience of half a thousand subscribers.

That means the tenth episode of the newsletter will be sent to an audience twenty times as big as the first one.

I'm very happy with the growth rates here. It seems that writing consistently and being active on Twitter in the bootstrapped founder echo chamber is a good way to reach a high-quality audience, as the amount of unsubscribes is still in the single digits.

TBF Stats at 500 Subscribers: 59% open rate, 27% click rate.

I had another post of mine rank fairly well on Hacker News. That one helped.

      Thanks! And yeah, these books pack quite the punch. If I were stranded on a desert island and I'd had to build a business, I would definitely pack those :P They give great advice and perspective into WHY things are they way they are (and how to make things with purpose).
