First day on the GitHub Marketplace

Mike Rogers @MikeRogers0

I opened my email inbox to the best email subject to read "Typo CI has been approved for the GitHub Marketplace"! It arrived about 5pm GMT on the 31st of October. I was hyped!

Users could finally find me via the GitHub marketplace, this meant I could finally start promoting my app.
During my lunch break at work the next day I sent the link to a few friends on Slack. A few hours later I had some 300 repositories using my app!

All in all, I was pretty happy with my first day. For the next week I'm going to monitor the "false positive" spelling errors and help improve my apps dictionary, then start figuring out the best way to share it to Hacker News. - The marketplace link if you're curious ;)
