The MakerMag New Year Questionnarie

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:

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?

Well, my latest product, Maker Army, was announced recently, so keep an 👁 on that. Also, subscribe to Makers Up to get daily maker news!

Which country are you in right now?
