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

happy-2nd-birthdaySo, 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! :D

At around 500-1000 words each I estimate that I have written more than 200,000 words something!

  1. 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.

  2. 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!


  3. 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.:)

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    1. 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. :D

      What do you think?

  8. congrates ammar.i visits your blog regularly and have learn a lot of things from it but i was not aware about its age.its a greate success in achieving this postiion in 2 years with studies.As i am also a student and know how difficult it is to dedicate time to blogging as a student.

  9. Congrats for your grand success. Hope we could also be able to write such article after 2 years. Your success is the result of your hard work and dedication along with niche content. Great miles to go and god bless you.

  10. Congratulations Mr. Ali! For you to show a strong online presence just within two years is an indication that you are committed to your blog business. As I have said in several of my mails to you which I will like to repeat here, “you have been an inspiration to me” since I stumbled unto your blog few a months ago. You are a great researcher and writer with high reputation and integrity. I wish you many more fruitful years ahead. Happy 2nd year anniversary. Take two gboza! gboza! One gboza for each year. Once again congratulations.
