Ten days ago we announced we were going to do our 80 day startup. Except we didn’t have anybody to announce anything to. We knew getting any kind of audience wouldn’t be easy. We’re over 10% in, so what do we have?
Traffic for this blog is at about 50 visitors a day. But the visit duration is 6 minutes, which is suspiciously high. I’m pretty sure that half the traffic is just the two of us, reading each other’s posts :).
We use plausible.io. It’s GDPR compliant and we’re happy customers.
In the past week and a half we’ve written 20 blogposts. First time blogging for us. Hopefully we’ll be able to write more quickly as we get used to writing. As we get deeper into coding we won’t be able to spend two hours on a blogpost anymore. Instead we’ll just post about the technical issues we’re dealing with.
We also have a mailing list where we send a weekly summary of everything we’ve done. That mailing list has a grand total of 29 subscribers. That includes the two of us, naturally.
That’s it. At about 20% of our 80 day journey I’ll do another stats update.
