I am excited to share a strong update with you all for the month of July 2020. I hope you will enjoy reading how Hashnode is performing in terms of growth and gain some insights into interesting things we worked on this month.
- New blogs (individual publications) created: 1500

- Content produced by the Hashnode community has been read 600,000 times this month. Unique user count is around 180,000.
- New user sign ups: 3000
- Team Size: 6
All in all, we are seeing a huge boost in growth and engagement after relaunching Hashnode and shifting focus to developer blogging.
We are trying to maintain a growth rate of 20% week over week in various KPIs and are meeting it successfully. Here is how it looks like:
That's crazy, right? We are constantly optimizing, hustling and doing whatever it takes to meet 20% growth every single week.
Thanks for being a part of Hashnode and helping us drive the growth. 🙏
Continuous focus on growth and engagement
In the last 1 month we have always asked ourselves:
- Is this feature going to help developers blog in a better way?
- Will this improve their lives?
- Is this going to bring more engagement?
If the answer is yes to all of the above then we build and ship the feature real quick and test the result with data. You can check out some of the interesting changes we did to Hashnode in the last month by visiting the changelog:
Strong word of mouth
After relaunching Hashnode we are seeing a very strong word of mouth. You all have been kind enough to invite your friends to try out Hashnode. Please keep spreading the word. It helps Hashnode grow and inject more value into the community.
Continuing our mission "Every developer should have a personal blog"
We believe you should own your content in a true sense. If you don't keep your content on your personal domain, you don't own it. At Hashnode we are continuously trying to teach developers to set up a personal blog and map their personal domain. We not only make it easy to start a blog, but also make it equally easy to eject from Hashnode. So, you are never locked into our platform.
Consider Hashnode your friend in the blogging journey. We have lots of upcoming features and enhancements that help you get better at blogging. So, sit tight, enjoy the ride and don't forget to spread the word -- because that's how we collectively pour more smartness into the community!
See you soon in another update. ✌️
