Nuffnang Featured Blogger for the month of July 2016
Assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera. It came as a surprise that I would be the chosen Featured Blogger of the Month of July 2016 and it is an honour to be part of the elite few who were featured before me.
You may know me as Ammboi but my true identity is Mohd Saiful Amri bin Yazid, aged 32 and I am from the great state of Kelantan. I am married to my wonderful wife, Norasmawati binti Tengku Abdul Rahman and we have been gifted with two beautiful children, Muhammad Ameer Adli and Aina Alisha.
I started blogging back in December 2007 with the original URL of ammboi.blogspot.com but decided to change it to ammboi.com mid of 2008 to show my commitment to blogging. P.S: I was still single at that time.
When I first started, I shared about anything and everything around me. Eventually, I realized that I could do more by sharing the latest news and latest developments happening in the world. Some may have overlooked the news, but they can always head over to Ammboi.com and catch up on what they missed.
Why am I known as Ammboi?
Actually, I was given that name in school because usually friends would rather shorten your name than call you by your full name. My school friends used to call me “Am” (and many others nicknames due to my long name). But “Am” stuck and it evolved to Amboi.
I started liking the name Amboi and I wanted to use this as my blog domain name but unfortunately, it was already taken. That didn’t stop me from getting a domain with my name in it so I added an extra “M’ and thus we now know it as Ammboi.com.
Did you know that handling a blog that showcases all the latest news isn’t the easiest in the world? It needs the blogger’s fullest commitment! Unlike a personal blog where you can talk about anything you want, I choose to only share the important and essential news that would be helpful to people.
If memory serves me right, I do have a lot of plans in 2016. Whatever it may be, I will need to re-evaluate based on the current circumstances. For example, I feel that I must improve the following on my social media platforms such as my own Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, just to name a few. Also, while I’m focusing on my social media platforms, I must not forget about my own blog, where it all started. The one thing I want to work on this year is the orientation of my blog. Some of my readers have commented that it looks messy and unorganized. I am slowly working on making it look cleaner, more organized, and more attractive to my readers.
As for my personal and family planning, there is a lot to bear and a lot of sacrifices have to be made. Priorities have to be set in place on certain issues but we hope it will all turn out well in the end.
Now, I am a husband as well as a father to 2 beautiful children. My family is and always will be of the utmost importance to me. I will have to manage my time on my blog, with my family as well as my career. However, my passion for blogging will never die and I will keep pushing on!
Thank you for taking the time to read this write up. It means so much to me that we still have bloggers and readers who are supportive and hard workers. For that, I salute you all out there ☺
