Mostly Python's referral program is now active

Hi everyone,

As some of you may know, Substack began implementing a referral program earlier this summer. I didn’t enable the program right away, because I wanted to see how it worked before doing so. I’m happy to help people share my work, but I don’t ever want to come across as spammy or overly self-promotional.

At this point there’s already a lot of meaningful content on Mostly Python, and you might want to share what’s here with other programmers you know. The referral program is pretty simple, so I enabled it today. From this point forward if you share the overall newsletter, or any individual post, you’ll get a few perks:

  • If you refer 3 people who end up subscribing, you’ll get a month of paid access.
  • If you refer 5 people, you’ll get 3 months of paid access.
  • If you refer 25 people, you’ll get a year of paid access.

If you’re already a paying subscriber, your subscription will be extended by the appropriate amount.

You can click any Share or Refer a friend link you see, and your referral will count toward these complimentary subscriptions. If you’ve referred a few people and don’t see a message about a complimentary subscription, please reply to any email you receive from Mostly Python, and I’ll help you get it sorted.

I really enjoy writing about my work with Python, and what I’ve learned about the language and the community. I don’t like gamification and turning growth into a competition. If you know someone who would benefit from this newsletter, please share a post or the newsletter itself. If you have questions about the overall Substack referral program, see their FAQ.

Thank you for helping get the word out about Mostly Python!
