So...you folks funded this thing in 17.5 hours...
Stuff that happened
Yesterday was insanely exciting, thanks to you. I was aiming for $100k in the first day, and instead we got there in 53 minutes.
We also got "Project We Love" status from the Kickstarter staff within the first hour, which is a huge deal for visibility.
We're the 5th most popular project on the entire site. We're already the 2nd most funded app of all time (more on that below).
Stuff that's coming
So we're on track to smash a ton of our stretch goals, but there's another goal that's way closer: As soon as we hit $332k, we become the most funded Kickstarter app of all time. That means a press bonanza, which means even more stretch goals, which means awesome.
How to make more awesome stuff happen faster
Keep sharing with friends. We made a handy-dandy share link: http://kickstarter.fluent-forever.com/ksshare. You can use that to save yourself time.
Upvote us on ProductHunt. It'll increase our visibility on that site.
Contact friends or acquaintances who run blogs or media, or send their info to us. We're about to become the most funded app of all time, which is an awesome headline for any journalist.
That's it for today.
You all are the best. Can't wait to make an awesome thing together.
PS: I realized this morning that if things continue at this rate, I'm going to be giving private Skype sessions all the time for multiple years. Apparently y'all like the Hyperglot perk way more than I anticipated. So I'm limiting the available quantity of Hyperglot perks with Private Skype Sessions, and then adding two new Hyperglot perks that include an exclusive 4-hour webinar. The webinar will be a chance for Hyperglot subscribers who choose that pledge type to ask questions and hear 4 hours worth of answers, and folks can attend live or submit questions ahead of time and watch the recording.
Basically, those users will get 4x more Gabe content, but less individualized attention. For those of you who are on the fence about grabbing the original Hyperglot+Skype pack, there are still a few left, so grab them before they're gone! (And for those of you who'd PREFER the webinar, you can switch over by clicking 'Manage your pledge' and open up a slot for someone else who wants the private Skype session)
