Progress Report - December 2017
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 didn’t read any new books.
I did my annual blog rewrite. This time I’m using gatsby instead of phenomic. The GraphQL source layer just gives me more flexibility and writing custom plugins is really easy and nice in gatsby. I’m now also on Medium and Steemit. I wrote some scripts that cross-post to these platforms.
Total downloads of all my apps stayed at 744 this month. This is only because my new app got a bit more traction and went from 10 downloads to 90 downloads.
In-app Purchases went down to 3 orders this month. (-4)
I made an estimated 10.24€ (-13.71€) this way.
My ad revenue also went down. I made 47.76€ (-7.48€) for 55,475 Google AdMob banner impressions.
Total App Income
In total, this month’s app income was 57.84€ (-21.35€).
December was a really bad month revenue-wise. Let’s see if it’s just a seasonal trend and it goes back up in 2018 or if I have to be more concerned.
Finally, something interesting happened here. While my sessions and users stayed the same my page views still went up quite a lot. The only thing I changed is the blog migration., so it must have something to do with the new blog?
Now that my blog migration is finished, I ‘ll start working on a new side project again. It’s still unclear what it will be, but I’ll keep you updated. I didn’t set goals for 2017, and now I regret not having a way to see if I achieve what I’m set on. So, the next post will be about my goals for 2018.
