UTOPIA: Milestone

Sunday, February 3, 2008


Looking back time, it has been almost 1.3 years since I last joined blogger. Blogging has got me to learn quite a number of things which I have never knw before.
Frankly speaking, I do not know what is blog until I browsed some of it online!
When I firstly sign up for a blogger account, it took me quite some huge efforts to navigate thru all those buttons. Previously I had tried friendster, and The Spoke which did not give me that kinda good blogging experience due to limited features and difficulty to customize my blogsite.
There are a long list to be listed out if I m to jot down things that I do not know before joining the blogosphere.

Among them are:

# blogspot, blogsome, wordpress, and all those free blog hosting sites. Never heard of them some few years back.

# free blog templates sites, such as pyzam.com

# widgets? What is that? Sounds like some sort of cute gadgets!

# RSS!!! This is even worse…The abbreviation alone is so scary.

# technorati, diggs, del.i.cios….Alexa, mybloglog and all those blog network/ranking sites…

# HTML, well, although blogspot has all the WYSIWYG tools, there are some areas which needed me to amend the HTML codes.

# Photoshop, Microsoft Photo Editor, Paint application, which I seldom used them previously.

# well, if u r into utilizing your blog to generate some revenue..u might also know what the hell are Adverlets and Nuffnang (and perhaps their co-founder as well! I do not know them personally!) Also, another recent advertising service, Nufflet…

# all the tools associated with blogs, such as CBox, site meter, photos hosting sites like Flickr, slide.com and all those nice media sites where you can publish your audio/videos online.

# famous bloggers like Kenny Sia and XiaXue.

# aspiring, fun and interesting bloggers frens such as 3point8, adrian, Alistair, amei79, Annie, babyger, blurryhunnie, bokjae, boonage, cannyhar, carmen, cbenc12, chanraymond, chingy, cometh, couchpotato, curryegg, digital polaroids, edward khoo, eRiCCa, evelynholic, FengY, hiew88, iammai, iCalvyn, imagica chan, JasonPhoon, Jean, JenBlue, Jenius, John Hill, Johnny, jumbo, kang yong, keeyit, Kenneth, kingtang, KirstenTam, littleraymond, lonelyhu, melody, monkeywong, nickz, Pennylane, PeranakanDude, PrincessEileen, ProjHeavyTraffic1.0, ProjHeavyTraffic2.0, ShangNing, Shaun, shiphire, Vone, WangJianShuo, xniquet, xris, Yannee, yenjai
Sorry, if I miss out some of you! Well, if you wanted to know what they blog about, dun hesitate to click on their sites which are also listed under ‘Cool Blog Sites’ at my site panel.

# aiksss!!! can’t think of any other things as of now…

Anyway, I will continue to grow with blogging! Till then, thanks for reading!

Hehey, I saw my blog link there...Thanks
Blogging taught me a lot of stuff too. My greatest achievement from blogging is being exposed to photoshop, html and lots of idea. Best of all, I did make a few good friends from blogging.

Keep it up Nux! Gambatte!
