DeveloPassion’s Newsletter — Next steps

Welcome to the 74th edition

Another week, another newsletter! I hope that you all had a great one 🤩

The Lab 🧪

During the last 30 days, I sold 38 copies of the Obsidian Starter Kit ($637) and ~10 copies of the PKM Library. The 5-star ratings, testimonials, and the public sales counter are certainly helping new sales happen. Those help accentuate the momentum.

Plan for the rest of 2022

Updating my plans was really necessary. Many things have changed since last December! I’ve achieved some of my initial goals, but I had to push back certain ideas and projects.

My plan for the coming months
  • Grow the number of paid subscribers for this newsletter (currently: 0!) to have better financial support and ease the transition. If you don’t support me yet, please do so. I need all the help I can get!
  • Turn the Obsidian Publisher plugin into reality (v1) and leverage it to migrate all my content to Ghost
  • Resume writing articles about PKM
  • Release the third book of my Dev Concepts collection
  • Resume work on focusd
  • Start iterating on Knowii (more on that one soon!)

Ideas I’ve explored this week

Some of the ideas I’ve added to my knowledge base this week
  • The paradox of inertia
  • How our eyes are windows into the world

  • The fact that information is not knowledge
  • The SCQA storytelling model
