Happy 2nd Birthday to My Blog – What I Achieved in 2 Years

Happy 2nd Birthday to My Blog – What I Achieved in 2 YearsSo, finally it’s 2nd year of blogging.
So many amazing things have happened in the past year because of this blog.
I can’t quite believe I have been blogging for two years now, (it has gone way too quickly)
At the beginning I didn’t know where to begin… my blog posts were short and awful, and I didn’t know what to post about but, I feel like my blog has come far in the year and although I still want to keep improving it.

Why I started this blog?

Before starting this blog, I was learning lot of things about Blogging and Web designing.

I used free hosting to learn WordPress and after sometime I decided to buy top level domain and paid web hosting to start this blog because I wanted to improve my writing, English, share what I learnt so far and make a little money. I already discussed in details here.

Here are quick reasons for starting this blog

  • Share what I learn
  • Help as many as I can
  • Learning new things
  • Improve writing skills and English
  • Make little money


Here is what I achived in 2 years of this blog. Below is analytics screenshot

    Happy birthday ABT, but Ammar you have not disclosed your daily traffic and monthly income through ABT, if you do that then that would be a great inspiration for us.

    First of all congrats for being consistent in blogging and i guess you’ve achieved a lot of things in this time period. I’ve been a reader of your blog from 1 and half year i guess and every time i visit I can see quality post. So keep rocking!

    Congratulations for 2nd birthday and a lot more birthdays to come. I’m on half of your way, but in first half year I wrote only few articles and i thought it’s not gonna work, but now it’s go ok.:)

    Hello; Congratulations on your second full year as a blogger. Your achievements are amazing. I am especially impressed with your number of followers on social media and email subscribers. I noticed something more important. It has to do with your why. You put learning and sharing what you have learned first and making money last. This just proves what the real experts are saying and that is you have to help your readers or potential readers if you want to be successful. You have to put them first like you have. And I too have been lucky to find many new blogs and meet a lot of very nice and helpful bloggers. I wish mor epeople would write about the blogging community and how much friendly competition there is out here. they say on the highways no one is more helpful than a truck driver. well on the highway of life no one is more helpful than another blogger. keep up the great work, max

    Hi Ammar,

    Congratulations on your success with this blog. I discovered it a couple of months ago and it has helped me in my own blogging efforts. All the posts have been very informative.

    I hope your blog continues to grow and I wish you every success.

    Many congratulations for your blog’s 2nd birthday. Although I got to know about your blog in August this year, but I feel I have learnt a lot about blogging in these 4 months all thanks to your wonderful posts.
    I hope to learn a lot more from your blog and wish you more success in the future.

    A huge round of applause for you Ammar; I am regular visitor of your blog and learning a lot from it. Very politely I would say if you aim to earn a little money from this blog why you are working so hard; a little money can be earned from simply forum posting or data entry work. Please don’t mind; think big to do great things.

    • Ammar Ali says

      Hi Edson,

      I’m already making some good money from this blog. I have no plan for joining forum posting or data entry work. I might consider revealing income report soon. 😀

      What do you think?

    I have been a regular visitor to your blog for almost a year now. And I have watched your blog growing fast, Ma Sha’ Allah ! Your blog inspired me, and taught me that anyone with HARD WORK ,a clear plan and determination, can succeed :)
    I owe you what I learned about blogging and SEO, and that helped me a lot moving my blog from Alexa Rank of 15 M , to around 400 K in one year !
    The most thing I like about your blog and social media contributions is the motivation posts, and the willing to help everyone.

    Keep it up, and best wishes for you !
