I blog-hop to quite numbers of blogs last night. The mood of composing my custom wedding album seems to be in a very low level lately. Well, that's because I don't have my own machine and need to use my company's with a 512MB RAM. Damn~~ that's so torturing to do editing and surfing at the same time. Still grateful to have a laptop though.
Oh, back to my blog-hop, I was actually researching, err that's too bombastic. I was observing how the world of blogging revolves right now. I dropped comments to most of the entries I read because usually I would have something to argue or something to share from my past related to the topic.
So, I log into my blog this morning and found out 16 comments in my new entry. The first thing in my mind was "are those from those I visited last night?", hoping I would get more blog friends whom we could share our thoughts and interests. Or maybe new friends whom I could meet outside someday. But when I view all the comments..hmmm~~~ It comes from my loyal readers a.k.a friends that I've been keeping in touch for years of blogging. It comes from my "Memuah geng". That's why you guys are so memuah to me. Thanks!! Thanks a lot for your warm supports throughout these years~~
Now, my intention is not really to have lots of comments in my entries. I blog originally to jot down things that happened to me and hopefully by sharing it, I gain more friends and some opinions from others that have gone through the same experience like mine. But seeing the pattern of blogging right now where mostly so obsessed of getting money out of it, trying to get traffic pouring in by dropping "hye" word in the chatbox or by following you with a note "please follow me back" (well this one seems to be vanishing), it's surely a twist in blogging.
Hmm~~~ I stumbled upon many bloggers where their visitors reached thousand a day. But when I visited the blog, "0 comments". Err~~ Maybe for that blogger, traffic is all she ever wanted. That's cool. But that's not what I'm after. yes, huge traffic means more people viewing the add and clicking them. That's IF they click it. And I know deep down inside you, when you went to other blogs, you saw an ads popping, did you click it everytime?? Sometimes you were so intrigued with the ads (that's basically the real objective of the ads), but then you said to yourself "tak nak klik ar. Klik yg pop up kat blog aku je la". Then what's the point of those proudly claimed traffic?? But I know, out of thousand, you might get 100 who clicked them. Huge traffic = better opportunity.
But for me, I prefer those who really read my things. Then when we met, we could chat like a long known friends because we followed each other's stories. "What happened to your car yg eksiden hari tu?", "your mom ok dah?? Tabah ek, kanser ni syahid dunia". Would you be able to chat like a friend when you only come and say "hye..let's visit my blog"?.
Blog-friend that could hang out once in a while and even dapat saguhati jeruk salak. Well, aku tak dapat la tapinya. Diorg ingat aku sudah balik masa ni
Silent Readers yg boleh lepak2 sama-sama. Buat BBQ bagai
Blogger yg leh jadi kawan, menari utk kitorang dengan rileknya =p
Kawan yg mmg kenal and follow my entries. Later when we met, I don't need to tell any story from the beginning
Kawan blog yg sanggup pikap kawan blog lain utk jumpa ramai2 dan memudah kan aku bagi kad jemputan. Walaupun tak datang (saja wat emo skit)
Kawan blog yg migraine pun datang with her busty look that night =p, yang mempercayai aku utk mengangkut beliau dan yang mai nun jauh berkilometer-meter. Tak lupe yg baru je mendarat sampai.
And kawan blog yg dah nak meletup kepala, penat drive, baru abeh kerja tapi terjah gak kenduri aku.
Now ask yourself, do you have these kind of blog-friends and would you get that by just Hying and Terjahing?? Bak kata Red Mummy, cara kena betul. Kalau tak sekejap je la kat dunia blog ni. To all my memuah geng~~~ Love you all~~~
