Hey Makers! I've been running my Telegram channel about products and startups for over a year now. It already has 1,100+ subscribers. It's in my native language. I recently started the same channel but in English. I find answers to questions about startups and products from people with a lot of experience in that field and write summaries. Join the «Startup Summary» on Telegram if you're interested: https://t.me/startupsum You can ask me anything.

@anil_meena21 Anil, actually, I'm not planning content. I really like YC, and there are tons of excellent quality content about startups. I just consume it and summarize. If I planned the content, I'd probably have 10,000+ subscribers, I think. But I don't have enough time for that. I'm doing startup first, then blog.

@jesv Man, thanks for being my first subscriber to the English-language channel! I really appreciate it, Jeff. I wrote posts every week and shared them on my Facebook, one Facebook group about startups, and one popular UGC site (like Medium). That's how I got 1,100+ subscribers.
