Progress Report - August 2018
I post a progress report showing what I did and how my products performed each month. Last month’s report can be seen here.
What did I do
I finished the first chapter of my book Learn EOS Development, created a nice PDF preview out of it, automatically sent it out on new signups, and split it up into smaller tutorials that I’ll release here on my blog. I also added open graph meta tags to all blog posts.
Some nice words I received last month:
Hi Christoph, I just implemented your “How to access Google Spreadsheets with Node”. I’m a hobbyist programmer. Cleanest way to do it by far, and I was looking everywhere!
The world is waiting for this book man, I assure you!
A Chinese company wants the exclusive rights for my book and translate it into Chinese.
I was called a React Native expert, right next to Dan Abramov.
Total downloads of all my apps went up to 821 this month. An increase in every app. Is it finally summer time again and people are downloading more fitness apps?
In-app Purchases went back up to 5 thanks to PPL workout. (+4)
I made an estimated 18.96€ (+15.55€) this way.
My ad revenue went down to 50.39€ (-6.26€) for 52,700 AdMob banner impressions.
Total App Income
In total, this month’s app income was 69.35€ (+9.29€).
Sessions went up to 10,891 on my website.
I stuck to my bi-weekly schedule of releasing a blog post. It’s easy when you have written a whole book chapter. I already have other posts in the pipeline.
- Learnings from building my first dapp on EOS blockchain
- C++ Guide for EOS Development - Basics
- C++ Guide for EOS Development - Call by value / reference
My twitter followers increased by 26 to 318. People like the EOS content.
Learn EOS Development Subscribers
I currently have 109 email subscribers for my book. I would have never expected such a big amount through organic growth.
Full focus on the next chapters of the book.
- Write tutorials for free and link to my book. Collect email addresses. All while actually writing the book.
- Add a way to automate these progress reports? I played around with
yeomangenerators last months, a really nice way to scaffold projects / blog posts.
