Recently I released an OpenStreetMap Block for WordPress' Gutenberg Editor and tried the following ways to promote it:

  • First, I took the time to write an article on my website, which would be used as a reference point for anyone seeking more info about the project.
  • Then, I posted on two popular Facebook pages about WordPress (Advanced WordPress and the WordPress Greek Community).
  • I tried Reddit as well
  • I posted it on Hacker News
  • and, of course, I wrote a post on

Of the above, Facebook was by far the most successful of all, offering great and valuable feedback. The rest passed rather unnoticed.
