Wrote an article that got 1,700 views in one week

Levi Nunnink @levinunnink

About a week ago I wrote an article on dev.to about how I'm architecting Wünderbucket to infinitely scale for $5/mo. My previous article on that site hadn't gotten much of a response so I wanted to try something a little different for this article. I opened up my business model and how I'm crunching the numbers on building a scalable cloud hosting service that's profitable from day one. I think this directness and transparency paid off because this article performed better than anything I've written on any other site.

  • In less than a week it got 1,700 views and 65 upvotes.
  • I also got a nice spike in referrals to my site.

I'll see if I can repeat it. Here's the article:
