July 2022

Even though July was a slow month business-wise, I managed to release some pretty important features. And also to take some vacation, which was nice ๐ŸŒž

My current solo venture is EmailEngine, an email syncing app. I have no investors and no one to report to, but I find it a good exercise to generate a recurring overview of the business, so I'm publishing these reports here.

Highlights

  • EmailEngine finally made it through $1,000 MRR. Four digits, not three anymore. How cool is that?!
  • One of the blog posts made it to the front page of Hacker News. This helped to keep the web visit numbers on the same level as in June.
  • The most notable features released were inline replies, translated authentication forms, SMTP gateways, and Gmail inbox tab detection.

Numbers

MRR $994 $1,120 +12%

Plans for August

  • I have nothing urgent on the table right now, so I hope to start with some of the larger projects, like the horizontal scaling feature.
