Progress Report - January 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

Productive Hours in January

I worked 49.5 productive hours. (Tracked using RescueTime.)
I watched The End of The F***ing World.

I read Attack of the 50 Foot Blockchain.

I finally got to live-coding on Twitch. I still lack all of the equipment, but I’ll get a microphone soon and then I try to have a regular schedule. Probably, sometime on Sunday afternoon like most live-coders. Topics will be my side-projects, mostly web dev, and blockchain.



Total downloads of all my apps increased drastically to 1079 (+353) this month. You can see that my apps are mostly fitness apps, and all the New Year’s resolutions are reflected in my download numbers.

In-App Purchases

In-app Purchases are still at an all-time low at 3 orders this month. (+0)

I made an estimated 10.24€ (+0.00€) this way.

Ad Revenue

My ad revenue went up. I made 58.67€ (+10.91€) for 75,695 (!) Google AdMob banner impressions. That’s 20,000 impressions more than normal, but my RPM went down.

App Income AdMob

Total App Income

In total, this month’s app income was 68.91€ (+10.91€).

IAPs Ads Total
10.24€ 58.67€ 68.91€

January was a good month, let’s hope it continues this way.

Platform Growth


Sessions increased again. Website Traffic

I stuck to my bi-weekly post schedule, I was even able to post a bit more:

  1. Goals for 2018
  2. How does Steem work, anyway?
  3. Book Review - Attack of the 50 Foot Blockchain
  4. Splitting your app into micro-processes


My twitter followers increased by 3 to 216.

What’s next

I only watched one new TV show this month. Time to catch up. Also, I should be able to finish a smaller side project in February. If you’re curious follow me on social media.
