My experiences in blogging.

Assalamu'alaikum! :D I wonder if there are people who still read my blog, well, after taking such a long hiatus. Hiks. Sorry!!! :(




I started blogging right after I finished my SPM examination. Abah got me a new laptop (well, not that I ever had any laptop previously, and it is the same laptop I am currently using as I am typing this), and I started to explore everything, most were the online writing platform such as Blogspot, Tumblr, Live Journal (oh, I totally miss LJ!!) and many more.



That would bring me back to around November to December 2007, where I was 17. My blogspot already turned 6, and my Tumblr was 5 last year. Do read my first ever post in this blog, and see if I do improve from time to time. :) (UPDATED! : I actually deleted my first post back in December 2007, well, maybe you can start with 2008 posts, if you love to.)



I learnt (and am still learning) a lot through blogging.


1. The blogging community.

This is one of the reasons I keep blogging, though at that time, there were not much bloggers like today. But the community was quite strong I say, no back-stabbing, no online wars, anonymous comments were critical, yet constructive, and everyone was friendly to each other.


Not that I am denying that those things have totally lost nowadays, but when you have quite a small circle, you actually got close to one another.

2. Most searched keywords.

I am still failing at this stage. LOL. I used to study (YES, study!) how to optimize the search engine looking for my blog, but still failed, well until today. Hiks. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) helps by getting your blog or website at the top of the Google search results.


There is not much I can say about this, well considering the fact that I have not mastered this part yet. But I found a way to get people attracted to my blog, which would bring to my third point.




3. Writing from the heart.

One factor that I found how my blog posts or entries telling about my crush stories got highest hits, was because I wrote in such emotions that I thought no one could ever understand. But I was totally wrong. While most of us could almost relate to the same situation I was in, others were like in a total sympathy with me.


Ahh, talk about an unrequited love. Everyone has been there, F! Hehe


This is the same thing that I find in Hanis Zalikha and Cik Epal's writings. I mention these two since I have been following them around my early months of blogging. They are both funny, they do not have to copy other people's styles of writing, NO! They are just being themselves. These two ladies are examples of how blogging the right way would bring you money. :)

Oh yeah, I still think Hanis Zalikha wins it all when it comes to promoting the advertisement tasks. Reading her ads posts does not even make me feel like she's advertising at all; you can read so leisurely, that's TALENT.






So, three points for now. Share with me what your experiences in blogging. Who knows, they would be helpful for future bloggers.





Till then. Toodles!

Of a sprained ankle.


Assalamu'alaikum! Have you had your shake today? My flavours of choice, as for this morning's breakfast, was the combination of Herbalife Formula 1 Cappucino and Tropical Fruits. In fact, I've been loving every bit of these two since few months ago. Hehehe.


And yes, as the title above, I did sprain my ankle just two or three hours ago. Yours truly was excited when she walked out her room, after talking to a makcik cleaner regarding Herbalife, yours truly failed to step down the stairs properly and fell down after spraining. LOL. And the best thing was that, she fell right in front of two men doing work around the parking area. One of them actually came to me, after seeing how I was unable to stand, then asking whether I was okay or not.


Was about to cry from the pain, from the fact that I won't able to do my lab work (and yes, I was on my way from the hostel to the lab, trying to wait for a bus), from being unable to go to KL from Herbalife training events this weekend. But I gathered the courage and strength to walk until the clinic. And the best thing was that I was carrying two bags; one with laptop, and another one with the TANITA body scanner; and the 2-L bottle, full of newly-refilled water.



Alhamdulillah, praises to ALLAH Almighty that once I reached the clinic, quickly registered myself and saw the doctor. Dr. Norlita said that thank God that I managed to get to her quickly, or else it would be worst (and my ankle was already swollen and bluish by the time I saw her). She asked the nurse to get me a cool pack, to be put on my swollen ankle for about 10 minutes. Then, I saw the doctor again, she prescribed me with Ponstan (painkiller pills), a bandage and Flanil (an analgesic cream).


Got my foot bandaged, walked once again back to my room, laughed at my foolishness and carelessness, and cried due to the unbearable pain.



Now, let's work from home, eh, from room. I should be focusing to do my DMOs using the Internet and finish my FYP thesis, but whenever I sit, it would feel uncomfortable. I don't manage to find the most suitable sitting position as for now. Been moving my feet here and there to reduce the pain. I even Googled the ways to get my foot recovered as soon as possible. Hehe.



Alright. Till then! Going to have my lunch first!
