Celebrating 2 million downloads

Published on by

We could not be more excited to have reached another momentous milestone: 2 million plugin downloads on WordPress.org.

Two years ago, reaching a million downloads was a glimmer in our mind's eye.

A while later, we did just that. To say we were a little proud would be an understatement. Now, barely six months later we have doubled that number. 2 million! Once again, we are very proud and incredibly thankful to each and every one of you and want to take a moment to express our gratitude.

In early 2013, our founder Danny started working on the plugin with one simple goal: to make adding the most effective newsletter sign-up methods to your WordPress site easy. As we've grown, that goal has not changed.

From our most minor feature updates to our biggest releases, everything we do centers about providing a solution that fits your needs. What drives us to do what we do is knowing that we are helping our users grow.

Reaching 2 million downloads and seeing the number of active sites using the plugin growing by the day is a huge motivator for us.

We could not have done it without each and every single one of you. We are grateful for all of our paying customers, as they support us to do what we do best. So, as we celebrate this milestone and look forward to reaching the next, we leave you with a final token of our appreciation.
