Progress Report - December 2019


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

Productive Hours in December Hours worked on side-projects in December

I worked 46 productive hours on side-projects last month.

To make these progress reports a bit more interesting, from now on I’ll post my favourite song, TV show, and article I read last month.

What was worked on

Despite Christmas and the holidays I still managed to get a lot of things done. I appeared on two interviews (here and here) and could sort out lots of boring bureaucratic business-related things.

I also have a great idea for a new side project that could be completed within a month, but still, it’s hard to make time. Maybe, I’ll get to it within the next months and post about it, or even live-stream the coding of it.

Platform Growth


Sessions went down to at 7,412 on my website. It’s really low, although I had a good month in terms of new posts released. I’m probably too much in my EOSIO bubble and nobody outside of it cares about these posts. In contrast to my older posts that would reach a wider audience. Anyway, I’m doing this for fun, and I currently enjoy writing EOSIO-related posts.

Website Traffic

It’s been a while but I finally maintained my bi-weekly schedule of releasing a blog post. 🥳

  1. EOSIO Dev Puzzle
  2. How to pay for users’ CPU
  3. De-anonymizing

I just noticed I never resolved the EOSIO dev puzzle as nobody participated. 😅 Look out for an update to the post soon.

I also wrote another interview on eoswriter, which has even been translated to Chinese and Spanish by the awesome Vigor community. 🙏


My twitter followers increased by 20 to 556.

Learn EOS Development Subscribers

I currently have 574 email subscribers for my book. (+23 in last 30 days)

I sold 3 books last month.

What’s next

I didn’t think much about what’s next in my life yet and if I want to change anything. I’ll reflect on that in my annual yearly goals posts that I’ll write next.
