Thank you for reading everyone!! stick to your newsletter long enough to see it flourish, don't give up.
This was a great and positive article about growth. Thanks for sharing!
Wow what a great inspiring story! Thanks for sharing!
Dang, this is inspiring! Thank you for sharing.
Wow good for these guys! I can't imaging posting that often and also throwing all those parties on top of working a full-time gig. Curious why they haven't at least launched a paid option for folks who want to support them even if they decide to keep all the content free.
I love that I also live in and mainly write about people in NYC, but I have never heard of any of the big NYC "names" they've featured in their own NYC-based Substack. It just shows me that even within one location, there's so much room on this platform for exploring different aspects of life and appealing to completely different readerships
Never been prouder of my favorite boys online ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I am 89 and have not given up. I have written three works of fiction under my pen name, Pat Muir, that have not sold. I have written ten movie scripts that have gone nowhere- see Coverfly. I am now writing a blog about what ex-slaves said to interviewers in 1936-38. See slavewords.substrack
I loved reading this! It's so inspiring to see how they've committed to it and stuck to consistent content and have seen awesome results.
Honestly, it’s so, so cool to see how the Perfectly Imperfect peeps respond to comments in the thread. I’m definitely taking a page out of your book. Thanks for doing what you do!
Wow, growing from 0 to 30,000 in three years is amazing.
Certainly inspiring to think that they’ve done it while holding down two jobs.
Strange that they’ve not monetised at all. They could turn on paid and ask for donations while keeping it free. They’d only need a small percentage of conversions to make it work.
As a fellow software engineer, I'm curious about your approach for the recommendations you've built. Substack doesn't have an API, but you are pulling from the CDN directly and possibly crawling your own Substack in real time. Any roadblocks you can share? I've considered a similar approach, but I am wary of violating the TOS.
Was posting a perfectly imperfect (P.I.) feature on Pi day on purpose?
This was a great article and contained a lot of useful nuggets, but none more useful than "don't give up!" Thank you!
Pleased to say that my Substack’s balance of growth against remaining cool is very even right now.
Always love when a new PI drops!
@Perfectly imperfect, thanks for sharing the Gold dust ✨️ of encouragement, inspiring to keep driving. I needed it👍
I must say which everyone of you spoke through this Substacks, you write the same way I do, I'm sure there is a word for it. You were a inviting read. spoke to me like a real person ( which I am for sure). I would like to subscribe to your Substacks, but I'm having trouble with my Substacks, It has no phone number to call, that I can find.
Just wanted you, to know that you are brilliant the way you talk to your readers. It's exactly what I want to do. and talk I love to talk and have an amazing story to tell and I to would fell bad about asking your devoted readers for money, how ever you do take care of business and sounds like you could come up with something, to get paid help you with gas at least, I thought maybe I would in my situation share more details of my world, I'm writing about my mom and me and the missing on a milk carton life I thought I could take the more juice stores behind the paywall.
Thanks again for the read.
