I have been reporting about technical and very formal stuff since I started this blog, but this particular post is very informal, and dedicated to my readers who are my friends as well. I don’t know if I afford such an off topic post or not, but I can compromise on this over my friends.
I started blogging few months ago, it was May 2008 to be exact – and at that time, I didn’t know that I will become a full time blogger. In fact it was early response that I got from senior bloggers, let me name them, Junaid Khan of Pro-Pakistan, was first one to interact, then Babar Bhatti of Telecompk.net, then Osama Hashmi of GreenWhite.org.
Suddenly, I did a post that got me 27,000 visits in a single day, (yea it just happened, it was not planned, neither imagined – but it just happened), when I actually started thinking of running this blog in more dedicated manner.
During the while, I found very nice people around, who encouraged me, helped me, and told me things which I never knew. Let me thank you all for the help you did and wisdom you gave me.
Duffer – I love this person for two reasons, 1 – coz I don’t know him, 2 – he is a khara banda
Nayni – A very talented and nice lady, who encouraged me for blogging in my early days
Nudrat – A friend in deed… She had given me her credit card to buy hosting for ProPakistani, as i never had any credit card until then. May Allah bless you!
Sohail Abid – Again a very decent person and a proficient programmer. He helped in getting new design of this blog – along with i keep on consulting him on various issues and bugs.
Saad Hamid – Told me very precious tips for SEO, he also helped me setting up my new server (which is on Linux Ubuntu) from scratch – many other tricks that he keeps on telling me.
Zeeshan Shafquat: He is my little bro, he writes for ProPakistani too, Google’s Doodles post by him was one of most discussed posts on ProPakistani.
Asad – He is my competitor by the way, he runs a similar blog too, PakSpider.com and let me add… he is a good competitor, nice friend he is. Asad also helped me for SEO in various phases.
Saad Ibrahim – Never spoke with him directly, but I followed his tutorial for integrating Google Search Engine with WordPress… Thanks Man! I am looking forward to more such tutorials on your blog
Hanif Paras – He remained quite consistent commenter on ProPakistani, I am missing him for few weeks now, hope everything is fine with him
Muhammad Ali Raza – Also writes for ProPakistani, and a very good friend.
There are many others, who would like anonymity. Such as journalists from press; they helped me a lot in preparing several stories. Spokesmen from cellular companies were always kind enough in responding my queries… and this list goes on.
I am not adding Reality Bites’ name, and he knows why I did so. Also the valued readers and commenters… they mean a lot to me.
crux: I am nothing without you guys! Thanks once Again – I am sorry if i missed any name in the list.
