News and Notes
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for reading Today I Found Out, and update you on a few kind of cool things that have happened the last month on the site.
First, we published a book, The Wise Book of Whys (available in Print | Kindle | Nook | Audiobook), which has been steadily gaining on the charts and today is at #1 overall in Trivia for e-books and #6 in print Trivia books (ranked 19,384 today out of all the books on Amazon, which is kind of fun ;-)).
We also launched a “Daily Knowledge” podcast (iTunes | RSS/XML), which has reached as high as #13 overall in iTunes’ podcast rankings, and as high as #1 a couple days in our particular podcast categories (“Society and Culture” and “History”). It was also featured as a “Top New Show” on the podcast network Stitcher.
Now-a-days, just a little over a month after launching, it is up to about 13,000-14,000 downloads per day steady, which has completely blown us away at how popular it’s been in such a limited time since the launch.
We also launched the TodayIFoundOut Shop right now featuring original very high quality nerdy t-shirts and hoodies, but we’ll soon be expanding to a lot of other original nerdy and educational product outside of clothing.
Finally, for the first time in TIFO’s history, we’ve passed 2 million visitors in a month (2,203,507 to be exact), and well over 3 million pageviews in a month, a first on both of those (counting our YouTube channel views, Daily Knowledge newsletter, and Daily Knowledge podcast it actually pushes well over 4 million “views” across the whole network in the last month).
This is particularly amazing considering it was just four months ago that we passed 2 million views for the first time.
So THANK YOU again for reading and following TodayIFoundOut. We’ve got a lot of new things planned for 2014 that I think you’re going to like a lot, so stay tuned. 🙂
