It's time to review my first month of #turnIndieChallenge and I'm gonna share publicly the numbers.
Remember if follow me on Twitter you can see my daily progress.
🚀 What I did
- Ghostboard: active development and first launch, is the analytics speacially designed for Ghost blogs.
- Starting 2nd project I will launch on September 2018
Not sure if you think it isn't enough but I worked a lot of time and spent a lot of energy 🏃🏼
💉 Besides, my wife was hospitalized on last week of August and I only workedsome short time periods whenever I could.
⚖️ What I got
My review is positive, the best is the good feedback I received, I think some people are really interested in the tool I'm building.
Even it reached the Hacker News frontpage 🤪
Of course, not only nice messages 🌈 but I see signups and users too, let's talk about it in a moment.
The downside is I noticed I have to work a lot more and harder about spread the word and market it, it's a lot slower that I thought.
About numbers, money and so on, I have no problem for sharing, keep reading 👇

I keep working actively in Ghostboard, I'm improving and will improving a lot more and I love to see it running in another blogs 😍
👨💻 On the other hand, I am also working on what will be my second project that I will launch in September. I initially expected to launch at the end of August, but after the launch and traction of Ghostboard I decided to change the direction a bit and it was a delay.
After that, I consider doing even shorter projects and I must explore the world of mobile applications 📱
⌚️ This would be very long if I write everything I am learning, deciding, reading or feeling these days, but maybe I will write about it at another time.
