Blogging Coding Goals 2017

To welcome the new year, I thought of writing an article to share my blogging and coding goals for 2017. I never have personal resolutions, but I still have some that are about my blog and my social networks! If you’re curious about what’s coming next for my blog, keep on reading! 😉

Oops… While writing this article, I changed my mind and decided to write some personal/professional goals for myself!

I find it important to share our goals, especially those about a blog, because if I am going to accomplish them, it’s going to be because my readers helped me. It seemed important to share them with you so you all will be able to help me! Also, sharing this publicly gives me an extra motivation to accomplish my goals!

Personal and coding goals

  • Assist to 6 conferences or hackathons
  • Learn Ruby / Ruby on Rails
  • Finish Advent Of Code 2016 🔴
  • Try 10 different coffee shops in Montréal
  • Get business cards done


  • Post a technical article each week, on Monday
  • Post a couple times per month my weekly update
  • Change the theme of the blog to be more professional looking ✅
  • Get an SSL certificate for a secure connection
  • Increase the security of my blog
  • Write 25 articles so that I will be able to participate in Blogmas 2017!
  • Fix a bug with images on Safari
  • Create a new logo for the blog 🙁


I have a lot of trouble to write newsletter consistently. I hope I can improve that this year and get better.

  • Send 12 newsletters (one each month)
  • Get 500 followers on my newsletter


Social Media


  • 15 000 followers
  • 475 pictures


  • 2500 tweets in total


I think I am going to post an article each quarter so you can all follow my progress throughout the year!

What about you? Have you got any goals for 2017 you would like to share? I am curious!

Did you like this post? Support me with a coffee!

I am learning more and more while reading the blog. Finding out stuff I’ve never known about or interested in. One of the those things is “Advent of Code”, which looks more fun than ProjectEuler or Rosalind since it has a nice story going on on the side.

I am sure that you will achieve your goals/resolutions since you made them public~ 😉

Aww! I’m so glad you’re learning new things on my blog. That’s why I decided to create Girl Knows Tech! I don’t even know “ProjectEuler” or “Rosaling”, but Advent Of Code was def a lot of fun for the couple few days I had the time to do! Thanks a lot for your comment!

I wish you all the best for your coding challenges! I have both coding challenges this year : learn Ruby/Ruby On Rails (just like you) and Javascript (I’m currently learning it – much much easier than PHP!) and later Angular JS. I attended several hackathons last year while I was doing my training. It’s a very good experience!

Thank you! You too, I hope you’ll be able to achieve all your goals! I’m on the right path. I didn’t know this before but in one of my software engineering classes, the teacher chose Ruby on Rails as the language 🙂 so that will be easily done this year! I looove hackathons! 🙂

I love your blog ! My personal goals are to learn more python, attend a few hackathons as well, and increase my follower count .

Thank you! Where do you want to increase your follower count?! 🙂
Good luck for these amazing goals! How is it going so far? 😉
