A Place For Makers to Share Their Story

Published on

We're excited to take the hood off Maker Stories, a platform for Makers to share their knowledge on Product Hunt.
At Product Hunt, we hear a lot about what it means to make a product — whether it's in the comments of a launch post, in a tweetstorm, on our podcast or in our DMs. The details behind these stories often translate into a lesson another Maker could use. So we decided to put these “How I did X” anecdotes in one place.
Today, we're excited to take the hood off Maker Stories, a platform for Makers to share their knowledge on Product Hunt.

What you can expect

Every day, we'll curate new stories from Makers — whether they're long-time CEOs or solo creators — to give real, accessible insight into what it means to make a product, build a team, acquire the first 100 users, and all the other things that go into building something new. 💪
We'll cover things like how to bootstrap a community-driven business with 50,000 members and why press stunts work to grow $20K in MRR. These will come as traditional blog posts, reimagined tweetstorms, Q&A sessions, podcast summaries and other experimental formats.

Share your story

We also want to feature you on Maker Stories. We're looking for stories on startup lessons, side projects, works in progress, failure, productivity, growth hacks and anything that goes into making a product come to life. Give us all the nitty-gritty details. 😍
If you're interested, share your story here with the following:
  • Your name and job title
  • A sample headline for the piece
  • A 1-2 sentence description of the story's angle
  • Your Twitter handle (if you have one!)
  • The story!
Note: If you want us to republish a story you've already written, please provide a link to the story. Articles, Twitter threads and podcast transcriptions welcome.
