So, 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
Wow, I cannot believe I have written 322 posts already!
At around 500-1000 words each I estimate that I have written more than 200,000 words something!
