Reflecting Back on 2023

my plans for sahanseradev 2024 1

It’s no secret that my blogging took a backseat this year — becoming a first-time dad has been a joyful, yet the most challenging journey of my life. It has been a year of new beginnings: a precious addition to the family, moving into a new home, and even transitioning to a new job. Through all this, my commitment to being the best dad possible remained unwavering.

Despite the fewer posts, 2023 had its highlights, including some popular posts and milestones that resonated well with you, my readers. Your support and engagement have been the driving force behind every article, and for that, I am incredibly grateful.

Vision for 2024

As I look to 2024, I’m excited to dive back into more consistent and engaging content for Here’s what you can look forward to:

  • Advanced Software Engineering Topics: I’m planning to delve into more complex issues like event-driven systems and distributed computing. Expect in-depth analyses and practical advice drawn from my personal experiences.

  • Meta Engineering Insights: I’ll share more about career growth, overcoming industry challenges, and the importance of soft skills. This will be a mix of advice, personal stories, and strategies to help you navigate your career path, all shared freely and openly.

  • Expanding to Visual Tutorials: Leveraging my position at a leading online graphic designing platform, I plan to produce more visual content, possibly reviving my YouTube channel. This means tutorials, walkthroughs, and maybe some behind-the-scenes content!

  • Gaming and Inspiration: I’ve rekindled my passion for gaming and might share how it intersects with creativity and programming. If you’ve ever been inspired by gaming in your tech journey, you’ll find these anecdotes and insights particularly relatable.

Engagement and Community Building

My goal is to not only grow the blog to 20,000 monthly active users (a 33% increase in MAU) by the end of 2024 but also to foster a more engaged and interactive community. Here’s how I plan to do it:

  • Consistent and Quality Content: Focusing on the themes mentioned above, I aim to publish regularly and maintain the high-quality, insightful content you expect.

  • YouTube Channel Growth: While I don’t have a specific subscriber count in mind yet, creating and sharing at least 10 quality videos over the year is a target I’m setting for myself.

Closing Thoughts

As we wrap up another year, I want to reiterate my commitment to this blog and to you, my readers. Your engagement, feedback, and support are what make thrive.

I’m optimistic about what 2024 holds and excited to embark on this journey with you. Here’s to another year of growth, learning, and sharing in the vast world of software engineering! 🤗
