Happy Birthday Feed My Inbox!
Today Feed My Inbox turns 2 years old and is doing better than ever. Check out what the website looked like on day 1:
Pretty basic, huh? Feed My Inbox is a great experiment in launching something as soon as you can, then learning as you go. We designed and built the first version in roughly 24 hours. It took a little over a year to figure out whether people would use the service, what features people wanted and how we could make money. For the most part, we were wrong on day one about all three. It's a good thing we didn't waste a bunch of time building things we wouldn't end up needing.
Today over 135,000 people use Feed My Inbox to keep up with websites they like. We're very thankful to each of you for using our service. Here are some other numbers we saw just last month:
- We are adding over 9,000 new feeds to our system every month
- Over 20,000 new feed subscriptions were created in July
- Over 21.8 million new feed entries were stored by our service last month
- Over 1.29 million emails were sent to customers last month, which is an email about every two seconds
Our servers aren't even breaking a sweat, so keep it coming!
