day by day
A strong beginning
and a final sprint

How did we do it?

3. A powerful message: press freedom
4. A favorable context: Spanish discontent
5. A popular (and fired) editor: a journalist against power
6. A promise of something really new: a different newspaper
7. A newsletter: a personal touch
100k followers in 100 days
Our Twitter welcome
Facebook recruitment
Our newsroom on Instagram
Sharing how we build our project from scratch
