200WaD is 6 months old

May 22, 2019

200 Words a Day is half a year old today, a good moment to acknowledge the road walked so far with some stats.

Traffic

More than 900 unique users are visiting the website on a daily basis, which amounts to one thousand page views per day in average according to Google Analytics. According to Cloudflare, 200WaD serves 27k HTTP requests per day in average.

Finance

200 Words a Day generates a Monthly Recurring Revenue of $115, thanks to the 55 wonderful patrons keeping us afloat. Thank you so much for helping me to create a sustainable platform for everyone. The total gross revenues acquired so far is being stashed in the company’s bank account to cover the current and upcoming costs: the current monthly recurring costs increased to $32/month since I bought a new server to keep the website growing. With the new chat feature there is a high chance the monthly costs are going to grow a bit as well, I will keep you updated on that matter.

Community

No revenue growth but the community is still expanding: the oldest members are pushing everyone to get better and it’s a pleasure to witness this family spirit being developed. We are 55 daily active writers in average, for a total of 2799 registered users. 28 people joined #TeamStreak, @brandonwilson ‘s team of doers, including 16 members whose streaks are higher than 100 days.

Content

We wrote 9465 posts (10k soon!), for a total word count of 2,982,315 (11,929 pages) at an average word count per post of 315. I’m really excited to release new features for collaborative writing, and perhaps organize our first community event in the form of a book written together over a few days (that we could maybe market, sell, and give the revenues to charity).

I’m so happy to see this community growing stronger. Thank you all for writing, reading, and more generally for exposing your ideas to the world. I’m so grateful to be able to wake up every day feeling like my work has an impact.

Let’s keep on improving together. Love you all ❤️
