To increase the chances of getting a HackerNews front page for a blog post, follow these steps: 1. Make the title direct and specific. 2. Avoid marketing-speak and use your repo instead of your landing page. 3. Use images to make the post more engaging. 4. Add the "Show HN:" prefix to the title. 5. Cut unnecessary words and tell a story. 6. Do not ask for upvotes or send direct links. 7. There's no best time to post, and engage with comments. 8. Consider starring the post on GitHub.
