I completed this MakerMag questionnarie today, and decided I wanted to save my answers. I wouldn't be able to do this with my blog, but hey, that's the beauty of 200wad.
Introduce yourself :) (e.g. name, age, indie products made, job, social media handles, etc.)
Hi! I'm Miguel Piedrafita, a 16-year-old maker. I'm working on too many things, including *checks MakerLog profile* Maker Army, UnMarkDocs, Makers Up, OrgManager, some little chrome extensions, and some open-source projects. I'm @m1guelpf on Twitter, GitHub, and MakerLog.
How was 2018 for you?
2018 was the year where I used my coding knowledge to actually make stuff. I did a lot of things, like creating a coding community, a SaaS app, starting another (another SaaS app), collaborating a lot to OSS, two or three more apps, etc. Here's an article I wrote if you want more details: https://miguelpiedrafita.com/2018
Did you have any goals and resolutions that you achieved or not in 2018? Care to share some experiences and difficulties along the way?
I did have a list of 2018 goals, but I seem to have lost it 😅. There were probably to launch UnMarkDocs (done), to earn money on the internet (done) to make friends & join cool communities (done) and to get better at design (not done yet).
What are your main 2019 goals and resolutions, both in your personal life and indie-making?
Here's my list for making goals:
- Make $1000 on the internet
- Actually learn design
- Actually learn marketing
- Publish an article every week
- Reach ProductHunt #1
- Get to 5000 Twitter followers
- Go to LaraconEU
- Speak at a meetup
- Launch 12 products
For personal life, my goals are studying and keeping my parents happy so I can keep coding.
Anything in the pipeline that you want to share with the Maker Mag community?
