We passed 150 000 people on SpaceHey - That's incredibly awesome!! I actually can't quite believe it! I don't know what to say other than THANK YOU! Thank you to every single one of you - you rock!
When I created SpaceHey, I would have never believed if someone told me that less than a year later, over 150 thousand people will use SpaceHey. And yet, that's exactly what's the case now. Over 150 thousand of you have found a new home on SpaceHey, share and talk about the tings you care about, use it as an outlet for your creativity and spread positivity and kindness. That's so much more than I could've ever dreamt of!
SpaceHey is now 11 months old (time flies!), I am working on it daily, and yet there is so much more to come - I am not only working on improvements and moderating the community, I'm also working on so many amazing new features which I can't wait to share with you - so stay tuned!
As you may have noticed, I've worked a lot on improving the overall performance of SpaceHey in the past weeks. With more users on the platform, I also need more powerful Servers. I migrated all SpaceHey Servers to a completely new infrastructure recently, which makes it much faster and which will allow me to scale it even further more easily in the future. This also improves the way I deploy code changes, run updates, etc. If you're interested in all of this technical stuff, let me know in the comments, and I'll consider writing a technical write-up on this topic :)
I didn't want to make this blog post too long (well, it kinda is now I guess - sorry!), I just wanted to say thank you to every single one of you. You are all so kind and creative and awesome.
SpaceHey has led me to so many new places these past months already, like getting interviewed by BBC, my first time speaking at a conference, being invited to a podcast, getting featured on Wikipedia and so much more - which is really incredible!
SpaceHey has been an amazing journey so far, and I look forward to sharing the next milestones with you!
I have so much planned for SpaceHey, and we're just getting started!
Have an amazing day, everyone!
