Hey there. Long time no see.
Last week I visited Egypt, and many things happened on tour. I've even been in hospital with a stomach infection. Photos are here.
That was tough. Will write a thread about it.
Besides that, I want to present you our December summary, show community life, and a few cool micro-startups.

Now let’s crack on with the newsletter ☕️
For me, growth is about long-term relationships and customers' loyalty to a company.
These two metrics will show you how "successful" your startup is.
I see how people frequently use our website, send me bug reports, show appreciation. And that motivates me a lot.

We did great work to grow in December. I hope January will give us more opportunities to spread the word about Microns.
Slow and steady wins the race.
This week we discussed a set of new features people want to see on Microns. I count every vote and feedback.
The first thing we decided was to implement monthly subscriptions.
Many people can't afford a yearly subscription or don't want to pay all at once.
When I start a company, I reinvest all revenue entirely into growth.
A yearly subscription gives you a great chance to sponsor creators, start a challenge or make a giveaway. But with a monthly subscription, to do something similar is much more challenging.
Considering this, I decided to make a monthly subscription starting at $24. And yes, we launched it today.
Of course, yearly subscription is better because I can easily reinvest that money into growth immediately by sponsoring some newsletters and communities.
For example, like I did this week for @workspacesxyz community👇
