I'm going to blog about each feature and progress I made in my book?

Is that grammatically correct?

To make this sentence grammatically correct and semantically satisfactory, it has to be something like this:

I'm going to blog about each feature of my book and the progress I've {made / been making [CHOOSE ONE]} writing it.

It's not grammatically correct. You can't say "each progress" because "progress" is not discrete: it can't be divided into multiple "progresses". Besides that issue it's correct, though it doesn't make much sense to blog in a book.

No I'm not going to blog in my book :-) , I have a blog and I'm going to blog about the progress that I will make in my blog. –  isa May 5 '13 at 7:25
