Tech Blog

Today, I have a tech blog with over 60k+ subscribers and followers, and I add hundreds more every week.

However, when I first started, it was modest. To start, I had no content. But before I wrote anything, to get my first 3 readers, I forcibly subscribed my sister and my coworkers. They didn't have a choice but to start getting the emails.

After that, I wrote for months before gaining any real traction. But soon enough, my essays were being posted on Hacker News, and that, combined with SEO and Twitter, propel my current growth.
