Queen of Procrastination

Yes, that’s who I am. I started  >>>> Blank Canvas < <<< in late December, 2006 and published my first post on 1st January, 2007. I purposely launched it on the first of the year so that I will remember it forever.

** An Anonymous Journal ** was set up on 2nd May, 2006. I remember it because it’s the day after Labour Day. Blogging constitutes working too, so who works on Labour Day right? Haha that’s why I did not set it up on the 1st of May, 2006, although it would be mighty easy to remember.

Anyway, one full month has passed since setting this blog up and as you can see, I am behind time. I am overwhelmed with work and perhaps it’s all due to my horrendous time management. Or maybe I do not relish the idea of messing with the WordPress codes which I have no knowledge of and hardly the patience to dirty my hands with *sigh*

When I do find myself with a little time, I prefer to blog, like what I am doing with this post, and just let my thoughts flow. I am not even sure if anyone would be reading this. Let it be. Life goes on.

The Recent 688 OOPS

 

Yes, that’s right, OOPS and not OPPS.

A couple of days ago, a PPP staff pressed the wrong key and accidentally released all opportunities to the board, totalling 688.

Wow, I didn’t know if it was a mistake or if it was a promotion that PPP gave to the advertisers to renew their opportunities. It could happen, you know?

Anyway, I just did one thing, i.e. GRAB!! Grab first, talk later!

Within that short period of time, I managed to grab, write, publish and submit THREE opportunities!

And then the site was taken down! After about ten minutes, the site was restored without all the old opportunities.

And then our submissions were deleted. And all of us affected were sent this e-mail.

Hey guys,

First up, please accept my sincere apologies. We had an error in the system today that resulted in a large number of expired opportunities coming active.

You are getting this email because you were too darn quick and made posts on those opportunities. We’ve removed the opps now, and removed your posts in the system.

You 2-a-day limit is NOT affected and you are free to go blog again.

Once again, please accept my sincere apologies for this confusion, and thanks for being understanding.

PS Terrence now has the chicken hat.

 

All The Best,
Peter Wright
Director of Software Development

Awwww time wasted without getting any compensation :-/

Some of you may think that I am dumb to even grab these expired opps. Hey, PPP is so unpredictable, one never knows what will happen.

A few weeks ago, they released about 150 new opportunities, with a string of high paying ones, within a few hours. Many of us exhausted our quotas even before the opps were totally released.

After this bumper opps, there were no new ones for the subsequent days. And now, the list of available opps are hovering only in the 20s region.

So, there, you never really know what happens on PPP.

 

See You On The Great Wall of Blogs

What do you do when you have a brand new blog like this and you desperately want to get the word out that YOU HAVE A BLOG!?

Join a community of course! I started this blog on 1st Jan, 2007 and before the week was over, I joined Fuel My Blog. After placing my avatar on a 40 X 40 pixel blog right in the middle of the Fuel My Blog homepage, I managed to garner a healthy stream of international traffic.

I believe all bloggers blog for a reason, mainly to bring our thoughts across and to have those thoughts read. What better way is there to publicize your blog than to utilize the Fuel My Blog machinery? Will anybody allow you to talk about your blog on the radio live? I don’t think anyone will be that generous than Fuel My Blog.

So I’ll be seeing you on the Great Wall of Blogs. Be there or be square!

Where’s the Transparency?

Yesterday, there was this piece of news in the national papers on Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme.

Tuesday January 23, 2007

Malaysia My Second Home programme under threat By MANJIT KAUR

KUALA LUMPUR: “Hanky-panky” by officers in a government department and unscrupulous agents are jeopardising efforts to promote the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme.

Our tourism minister said that:

“Unfortunately during this transition period (one year), some of the officers from a department did something which is not nice for me to say.

“But the mess has been cleaned up by the department, and we are working closely to ensure that such incidences do not occur again.

“A few officers from the department have been sacked for not following the stipulated rules and regulations on fixed deposits,”

What a laugh. Isn’t that a gov’men department and don’t we, the rakyat, have the right to demand for transparency? How can a statement like that be allowed to slide? Not nice to say so don’t say issit? Wahhh What has become of Malaysia?

To Migrate or Not, That Is The Q….

Long before I got down to getting this blog up, I thought that it would be ideal if I could migrate the content from my old blog over here.

However, after I upgraded my Blogger to Blogger Beta and subsequently to the new out-of-Beta Blogger, I read in one blog that it is not possible to migrate the old contents to a new blog anymore, or at least it’s not as easy as it was before.

It’s horrifying to think I may have to copy and paste each post one by one over here. I have over 400 posts on my blog and ahhh the amount of work!

When I first stated that blog, I diligently published one post a day. After I started to blog for money, I have on average four new posts on the blog per day.

So shall I migrate? Even if I do, I will only be saving the old posts as drafts in this blog as I don’t want search engines to think my blogs are mirror sites, since they are definitely not, and risk getting removed from their index.

Who Is Reading Me?

Ok, I give up. I have no bloody idea how to go about editing WordPress themes. It did not help that for whatever reason, I am unable to access the theme files just when I’m all fired up to get the stuff done. It really kills my mood. Why waste time with the layout when I can blog, right?

So this blog is for now bare of Adsense, image buttons, stats tracker, advertisement banners and what not, till I figured a way to go about implementing them.

Sometimes I do feel that it is better not to know who reads my blog. At least I can blog without feeling self-conscious. I can’t blog as emotionally free now that my other blog has more readers.

This is also the reason why not even my family knows about my blogs. If I am not granted the freedom for anything else, I will fight for my freedom to express. I don’t know if there’s anyone else who knows me in real life that discovered my blogs. If they did, nobody confronted me but thankfully, not many people I know for real are bloggers. Bloggers are one of a kind.

So I thrive on this opportunity to write and write away without minding who, from where, reads my thoughts, when and for how long.

I hope you will enjoy reading my thoughts as I have enjoyed jotting them down.

Inner Smile!

The other day, I had the opportunity to listen to a recorded interview with a marriage counselor. She said that every time she is annoyed with something, she will tell herself, “Inner smile!” and she will conjure up an image of upturned lips and twinkly eyes.

Since then, whenever I get annoyed, especially when people come asking me for money as if I have a flourishing money tree, I will tell myself, “Inner smile, girl!”

You may wonder if this works, well most times it does. Not only do I conjure up a virtual smile in my mind, I also think of some joke or something that made me laugh. It helps when you have joker friends who crack jokes like nobody’s business all the time. I’m glad I do have friends like these to cheer me up. It sure beats searching the internet for jokes.
