How to build a website or blog like EmiratesDiary.com?
I believe in sharing the knowledge that I have acquired or learnt. I started EmiratesDiary.com couple of years back with the hope of learning something new and I can comfortably say that I have learnt good amount of tech-stuff while I built this website.
EmiratesDiary.com has provided me with fresh outlook on life.
In the process of learning I also make a some money through ads that are displayed on my site. Although not a huge amount of money, they support my expenses.
