I managed to write this blog for 10 weeks during the action!
I encountered some problems along the way, but I’m impressed with what I could achieve, especially in the first phase of the project. You can read more here. Konstruisto is still alive and I plan to develop it until some playable version. I started to publish updates infrequently, I guess once a month or so is enough.
I wrote 29 articles, including nine project updates. There were three really popular tutorials:
- Use the make tool to speed up development
This one was popular on Reddit (see discussion).
- Managing time with std::chrono
Made it to the “Awesome C++ Newsletter” #45
- Flexbox model in CSS – make a calendar
Got some interest on Facebook
What is interesting, the best articles were not planned at all. I just felt like writing a few words about the topic.
The blog has been more popular that I expected. Between March and May, it got over 4100 page views from more than 2500 people. I got visitors from 76 countries. One-third from Poland, but there are some more exotic locations like Taiwan, Chile or Barbados.
I will think about a custom theme for my blog. I want to include some non-technical stuff, and I have to consider how to organize the content.
