Describe your blog in not more than 50 words:
In case you didn't know, the word 'blog' originally comes from "web log", sometimes written as weblog. It was suppose to be a log or a journal that people keep on the web. As soon as it became more popular, the word 'blog' came about by combining them both.
There are plenty of reasons why people blog today. Some blog for no reason at all. Having a blogging history of 18 months previously, and having taken another 18 months break before I rejoined the blogsphere. I am sure I have a clearer picture of what I am doing this time.
So why do I bother blogging after all?
1) For fame. Seriously, I tried that, and it didn't work a bit. Blogging is a lot like singing. Anyone can try singing but not everyone can become Jay Chou. As a matter of fact, 99.9% of the population doesn’t become stars. You only get to become 'nothing'. So if you are thinking of becoming a celebrity blogger? Think again.
2) For money. How much do you think I make with my Nuffnang so far? Rm12.18. That’s how much I got and trusts me, I would have earned more money selling grass to cows compared to running a blog. Big money from website advertising only happens if you have thousands of reader a day. If you haven got that, go find some cows.
There are a lot of tricks people do to increase their blog traffic. One of the method I read is by joining some sort of website call 'blog explosion', and crazily visit many blogs in it, so that these bloggers they visit will somehow visit their blog back because of some features the website offers, hence increasing their traffic.
Seriously, I couldn't bear even at the thought of sitting in front of my computer and keep clicking meaninglessly for hours just to get a bunch of meaningless visitors entering my website for the sake of it. Big kukujiao, if you don't appreciate my written works, I would strongly encourage you not to enter my site and go watch porn instead. I regard that more fruitful.
I always see myself as having a flair in writing. And I enjoy literature very much. The fact that these poets who are able to sum their philosophies, opinions and thoughts in the most beautiful sentences never fails to amaze me. So writing is big part of my hobby. And you will never find me writing a post like:
"Today I feel very sad arr, because my girlfren hoh, she fucking break up with me loh, what she think she is hah? Usually it is only me break up with cha boh, how will cha boh break up with me? I am like Edison Chen everybody including my mother also know one, mai cibai, I so sad lah, lan jiao, enough said bye liao"
Stress has prevailed more evidently today than it had before. And I do believe that if a person don't find ways to express himself of his tensions, he will really become dumb. While I enjoy talking to my friends about a lot of things, sometimes when they aren't there at the moment, I would choose to write it out. If you too am a blogger, don't you feel a lot better sometimes when you write out the things that trouble you?
My friends drop by quite a lot here, and I believe the same does to you all who keep a blog. So if you are wondering what are the ways I update them on my latest happenings, this is how I do it. And it does really do a better job than facebook. I can get a message across here, I get to share my day here while facebook only allows me to poke at them. When you reach a certain level of maturity, you will get bored with facebook so fast you eventually realize that it caters for teenagers much better than adults.
Do I care about my readers? I do, I respect them a lot, and I appreciate them surfing here. But I do not blog for them. I blog for myself, and if I can accommodate some fun and write things that might amuse, inspire or touch them, I will certainly do so.
So what is the bottom line?
The bottom line is I love you. Get over it. This is the end of this post.
Go and have a nice day.
