In Misc Posts by KumarUpdated : 2 Comments

Hello !

Happy New Year 2013 !

It seems like I just wrote  our RedBus2US blog 2011 in review …time just flies… there were significant changes in my personal and professional life in 2012…unfortunately,   I could not keep up with the blog as much as I used to in 2010…but, our blog reached twice the number of people in 2012, when compared with 2011.

RedBus2US Blog in 2012           

  • Our blog traffic doubled in 2012. It reached about 2.5 million users in 2012, whereas it was about 1.2 million in 2011.
  • We launched Q & A section for users to collaborate and help each other
  • We also launched H1B Visa tracker to track H1B Cases and get idea of processing time.
  • Our Blog’s up time was about 99.92 %.

Overall we have about 500 articles on the blog on various topics.

Most of the questions / comments on the blog were actively replied by Saurabh. Thanks to Saurabh for his continued support  to help our readers, he has been helping our readers for few years now.   Also, we have lot of our readers, who have been actively commenting and helping us on the blog and Q & A section.  Thanks to all of you folks as well, without your help, we cannot have an active community.     Q& A section and Tracker is only possible because of Adi, who helped us in his free time. Thanks to Adi  !

What to expect in our Blog in  2013 ?

I started the blog back in late 2009 with primary goal to share my honest experiences ( read About RedBus2US)  so that it will help others…I have not been able to contribute as much as I wanted to in 2011 and 2012, due to a host of changes in personal and professional life…. Every night, I say to myself that I should write more and share more valuable info with our readers…but life has got me…no excuses, I guess I have not been able to manage my time well…Anyways, here are my goals for the blog in 2013

  • Contribute at least 5 articles per week ( hopefully every week day)
  • Organize content on Blog for better navigation and new users
  • Change the Blog Layout and theme – More simpler/ lighter theme.
  • Refine the H1B tracker with nice Analytics for better understanding of cases
  • Write more articles related to
    • Life in America
    • MS and MBA students in USA
    • Life in India vs.  Life in America

    Hi Kumar/Saurabh/Adi,

    Happy New year to you all (It might be late but I visited your site today).

    First of all really appreciate you guys for creating & maintaining such a wonderful site.

    While going thru this site, I didn’t find any blog/topic which explains step-by-step process for Green Card, especially for those who have started their life on H1/L1. (Please correct me if there is any such blog/post on this site).

    While googling thru I didn’t find any other website as well which has these details. Also as we all know going thru USCIS site is not that cool

    So request you people to post a topic with all minor-major details for green card process(including the expected processing times).

      Happy New Year to you as well!

      I have been wanting to write some articles on GC for sometime now, but not getting enough time. My day job is taking up too much time these days, but I will surely write something soon. If you have any specific questions meanwhile, then you can post them (in Q&A section) and I will try to respond to them.
