[Volume 8 Issue 11, #1821]
大家寫一個post通常需要用幾多時間呢?? 唔計你拗爆頭諗要寫啲乜時間, 由你有頭緒開始計, 我諗唔駛一個小時都應該搞掂啩?? 
how much time do you usually need to write a post?? exclude the time you scratched your head for what to blog about, from the time you (have an idea and) start writing, probably just within an hour??

    1. I've never thought of it before. No matter what, it's not the time taken that matters but the post itself. I acknowledge it's quite an effort to keep a blog active even in one language and you are blogging in two languages. That's double the effort. Kudos, SK!

      True that sometimes getting a post up can be quite a challenge.

    1. Waiting for the text to come out word by word has taken some extra time already. Nice though, different...and as they say, variety is the spice of life!

    2. It does not matter if it's long or short - it must be enjoyable...and hey! I'm talking about what one writes! LOL!!!

      Some are soooo long -winded and soooo boring. Others are short and sweet.

      Sometimes, even a picture will say a thousand words...but some have sooooo many BIG pictures, it takes soooo long just to load the page and when the connection is not so good like what we have here, it can really get on one's nerves. Ok, if somebody takes great pics, just select the best and share - no need to throw in the whole lot. I don;t know about others but I'd just scroll right to the end. Where got all that time to scrutinise one by one?

      Just take yours for example - so nice - one picture and there is so much to talk about already...and I like how you put it in an album and your readers can click to see one by one. I guess you need extra time to do things like that but I assure you, it is very much appreciated...or at least, I do!

    3. Hello STP. I see that you have escalated in the coming spammer's chart to grab the crown. Good effort!! Keep talking!!

      I agree that many bloggers are damn long winded like writing history books and repeating the gory scenes! Well each one has their styles and they don't need others to teach them, right. Some people could keep talking about noodles and doodles for years. Muahahahaha

      Delete
    4. Ouch!!! Hahahahahaha!!!! Ah well! And there are people coming back for more and more and more.... Guess one can;t get enough of a good thing, right?

      Delete
    5. Just pretend that this blog post is talking about your favourite Kampua noodles or kongpia!!! You sure can rant on and on until 1001 comments! You are doing fine and you have more time than all of us here. Show your Rambo Willpower ok. King Arthur rocks!

  3. I have all the time in the world, being retired...but usually, when I have the time, I will just write all the posts I can manage and schedule them - one day one so on days when I cannot sit down and write, I do not have to worry that there will be none for the day.

    Personally, the time taken to write does not bother me - after all, I have a lot of time - as I do enjoy writing and sharing. Hopefully, there are people who enjoy reading...but never mind if there aren't any who do. As they say, you can't please everyone so you gotta please yourself.

    1. You certainly inspired me that blogging will be my best part time and to stay connected with other bloggers when I have retired. I love blogging much more than Facebook anytime. The Facebook could create jealousy and conflicts!

      Delete
    2. I'm fine on Facebook. I just hide or unfriend those that get on my nerves. Oops!!!! Hehehehehehe!!!!

      Delete
    3. Every month I block and unfriend some idiots. This month I just blocked my own brother! LOL I have to control the situations mah.

      I love blogging and reading blogs anytime. Most sane people are here. So far we only have a retarded named Beatrix who wrote craps. Has she visited your blog? She should see what you eat and give some comments too.

      Delete
  4. There is also a saying that says: It is not what you say but how you say it.
    Like what I said in my earlier comment, some can be long and yet they are interesting - others are short but they are such a drag. Others may share about things in their lives and everyone enjoys reading about them...but there are others who do that and yet, they come across as being such a brag, so boastful.

    I think writing is an art, either you have it or you don't? What do you think?

    2. Thank you, thank you. So sweet of you to spell it out, so flattering.

    3. The art of good writing comes from one's inner talent and creativity. You certainly have the flair where food is concerned to keep us drooling. When are you going to dig out all your old photos in your bell bottoms and kari pap hairdo?

      Delete
    4. So far I've got lots of things to blog about so no need to resort to those at this point in time. Well, till I run out of stuff...I may go and dig out some to share.

    5. Wow STP is improving in spamming here...bravo!

    6. Not really. Seems everybody is not so active these days, blogs dead as a door nail...so I just hang around here to pass the time. Hehehehehehe!!!!!

    7. What do you mean as pass time? This is your passion and ultimate goal to become the King of Spamming! Time you get the crown and sit on SK's banana leaf throne for once. Muahahahaha

  5. Good morning Ah Boy and all.

    Good topic today

    Yeah last week i also kena...can say as blogger block? LOL.....felt so malas to write post.

    Hmmmm how long does it takes me ah? If usual post like you said will be within one hour la. But then if those paid post then manyak susah. I cannot use bahasa rojak and must sound professional sikit la. How to sound professional with a kid voice tu manyak susah. Took me half a day leh sometimes to scratch my head. die or not die leh

    I really pui fook those who can write long posts . Last time karangan i can write long la but now...hmmm...older jor...nothing much to say gua.

    3. Meow,
      Paid post if have to think hard and spend more time, OK wor. Since it's like a job. and get $$$

      Right or not? hehehe

      I myself, don't like to spend so much time drafting. I tend to type what I feel immediately. Finish. Then re-read a few times to check on typos and whatnot and then publish.

      Idea wise, a lot of times, ideas come and it gets KIVed in my brain until there is such a time, I finally get to take a photo that match with my ideas.

      For me, I put photos and have a story written around it. That's why it's easier and more senang for me to finish a blog post. hehehe

      Kid voice writing about reviews is soooo cute wor. Not many do that style. So why not? That's your identity and many can relate to it.

      If all write the same boring style reviews... aiyoh... no fun lah!

      I like your posts. So nice and cute with J in it. *thumbs up*

      And for Ah Boy's posts : I always like the fact that he doesn't cover he same thing over and over again. His posts are varied. Variety is the spice of life, kan? ANd he does that and keeps things fresh in his blog.

      *eh! I sound like I'm bodeking him a lot tak?* HAHAHA

    4. Small Kucing - I think you posted too often until your brain juice ran dry like ikan bilis. Now I understand that it is not easy for you to write in a child's voice. I know it was a great talent of yours which amused me always. You should be a great story teller like Harry Porter!

      Wooiiii Suituapui, what you wanna hear TM say? You probably meant to say I am long winded writer!! Look at the mirror lah. Oh no, I think I am not a good writer but I am definitely a better at spamming. I rate myself as a lazy blogger but I love to read logs since I hardly read biased newspapers now.

      Mak Glemer - You will soon become a paid writer now that you are getting famous in the running circuit. Soon you might use your legs to endorse running shoes like Usain Bolt. Who knows your face will be on the packaging for Bunny Ears too!! You can promote a bunch of kinky dildos and running gears!

      Delete
    5. Iyer... Dun want promote dildos lah lol

      Anyway, too much paid posts & reviews also not good, right? Later my blog will be more boring and dry. ;-)

      But I do some sports attire companies "donate" me some running gears. Sigh... Good stuff don't come cheap, that's for sure!

      I famous in running circuit? Adui... Who am I la.

      Anay, wanna help me promote myself become famous. Don't want to be infamous though. HAHAHA

    6. She said this mah: "Last time karangan i can write long la but now...hmmm...older jor...nothing much to say gua." and you always call her Mak Nenek or whatever, comments all so very long....so you two are contradicting each other lor.

      So sensitve!!! Nobody's talking about you lah!!! Sikit-sikit, marah dah!!! Chesh!!!!

    7. wei....tu not Harry Potter that does the writing la...tu J K Rowling ler....Harry Potter is just a character in the book.

    2. Yes I have said this a thousand times that I salute Ah Boy's effort to blog in 2 languages to entertain a wider audience of readers! I am certainly one of them who has been attracted to his blogging traits & personality, thus becoming so loyal for many years even before seeing him in real person. I sound so gay. Muahahaha

    3. Pity no Tamil also. Otherwise, really across all races one.;-)

    4. Whoaaa!!! I have suggested many times la but SK is shy to let the Chennai Slumdogs to read his grandma stories. If they know that he has a child Fing Fing and is a big spendthrift, they will arrive in herds of buffaloes to castrate SK!

    5. Aiyoyo why Thambee so shy don't want to let Chennai relatives read his blog posts?

      Thambee, I am sure they are proud of you.

    6. Maybe we should challenge ah boy to come out with tri-language post next year. But then am afraid he will ask us to comment in tri-language pulak . LOL

      First done here

  10. I always feel writing a short and catchy post is way harder than writing long-winded, rant-style post. That's why mine is always long winded. HAHAHA

    Just post some photos if myself, and write a narcissistic post around it easier than writing a thought provoking posts like yours SK.

    Anyway, cool feature you got there. We cannot skip reading the end since your post came out word by word.:-P

    4. Anay studied and worked in ad companies before. So he knows how to attract people with punchy and short stories.

      We dunno one.

      Some short stories have no head no tail also. Like, tak habis lah!

      Anyway, Anay is one good blogger friend who always come and visit others.

      Not easy also to spend time doing that, despite his hectic schedule.

    Long winded comments are fun. If it's kept to fun la.

    Sometimes, it's a chore to read long winded comments that sounds like it's a page out of Wikipedia. No offense everyone! hehehe

    But I love Meow and Anay's nenek kebayan stories because they don't preach but instead, they story-tell whatever their experiences maybe, related to what SK posted up.

    It's like a post (or posts) within a post. :)

    7. I am back here spamming like crazy trying to boost up my rankings before the deadlines. My head going bonkers doing this spamming. Others would probably ask me go and get a life!!! Muahahahaha
      Tonight I read this post again and conclude that bloggers are like artisans to me. They are expert in expressing themselves via writing in their own personal blogs to share with the world la. This is an art of writing through blogging which is a totally new world of media tools.
      We have seen many types of bloggers in the past. Some survived all sorts of holocausts and some have evaporated into thin airs after talking so much hamsaps. That shows the battle of blog survivals solely depends on one's will power, determination and mental strengths! Not easy yeah and not difficult too to become a long lasting blogger.

  13. Sometimes it is hard to think of what to post, as I may run out of ideas of what to write, but I do like the interactive elements in your post SK, your hard work pays. I usually write short posts as I have difficulty thinking of a long post, but I do enjoy writing and sharing and sometimes I do throw in a picture to share at times. I don't usually sit there and think of what to write but my ideas will come to me when I am busy doing my daily things.

  14. If I am writing a travel post, it will take a longer time cos got more things to write and more photos to post.

You take 10 mins to pluck a bamboo leaf and how could you type your long winded posts like China's Great Wall that can be seen from the moon by Neil Armstrong?? You kidding me lah! Muahahahaha You need 12 hours to write your posts in many parts and 2 hours to write SK's certain posts is understandable.

    2. I would rate this Mr Lonely as the Male Nenek Kebayan who never fails to write rojak blog postings that would scare any reader with copy-pastes. In the end you could read perfectly written English with horrendous grammar paragraphs in between like salad. That gives me tummy aches! LOL

  28. Good day SK and friends!

    Hmm this is an interesting post! Well to me, depends on the topics and number of pictures la, average about 40-60 minutes (if smooth). But if in between got some 'obstacles' or Aden come and kacau, need at least 90 minutes and above lo~

    1. I really salute you la SK. I mean for your patience and determination to use those scripts in your posts to make the whole thing more interesting, and also more entertaining for your readers.
      I really don't have that kinda 'heart' to do so.... To me, time is money, haha! I mean I cannot write slowly like this, every time I blog I make sure I don't drag the post for too long, so I always just use pictures to do the talking, and write straight to the points. I know it's a bit boring and common la, but what to do? At least I blog in the end ;)

      So thumbs up for your effort! No wonder you have so many supporters la!!

    2. Oh, sounds like you're a perfectionist huh? Hehe...
      Well, I too can be a perfectionist sometimes but again, it depends on my time. If time allows, I'll try to make the posts nicer, by writing more details, and insert more photos.
      If not, I'll just write the main thing, and publish!
      (But in real life, other than blogging, I consider myself as perfectionist, regardless of time, kekeke)

    3. Actually I wanted to try your scripts for so long you know! But erm.... too busy to explore deeper :p

      But please keep the scripts and links on your blog all the time ya? One day I'll make use of it, one day............ xD

    4. Alright, time to sleep, got a busy day tomorrow, a short family trip, hehe~!

    5. Looks like many people including Hayley have come to salute SK Thambee too!! i have long ago identified SK's special blogging interests that further motivated me to work harder & not get lazy. That's not the life i want when time is so precious! That is why I don't like to associate with lazy bloggers in watsaps! They are just mere blog acquaintances and not my play mates to entertain them when they need a kick.... CB-SP! Adoi.

  29. Good topic to share with us here. Yeah, I do think about this issue. Sometimes, when ada Umph, I can finished around 45mins or less. See what topic lar. Last time, I try to blog about anything I saw, I experienced, anything just happened on that day... These are more freelance topic to write, which is more easier for me and there's no obstacles.

    1. Last time, I don't have many readers like now. Thanks to all of you for visiting my blog. Really appreciate that. I wish to improve more and be more constant in posting. I still have difficulties to manage my time well - work, baking, blog, kids and my own personal matter. Really hope to have much better time management next year. Getting a new role at work really give me a big challenge to learn more things and probably I need to attend many training later on, phew! I can't think that far yet, as long as I have the will to blog then I will blog.

    2. To blog or not to blog, very good question for me whether to stop in this blogging world after coming so far. It has been always a question mark in my mind. I would say, I can give up Candy crush, FB, Insta but not to blog. It has been part of my journal already. You should know, in my blog there are something I didn't really blog about and stay on privacy mode. Yeap, hubby did gave me a sound that I shouldn't blog so much of my privacy thingy. Hehehe.... I have to listen to him lor. Firstly I already set my blog not in the search engine jor, I already did this when I started to blog (*_^). But I really love to blog about food, my cooking and baking and of course places I have visited. Nah don't worry will keep on my blogging mood.

    3. I will remember what you say today that you won't stop blogging. I have heard this many times by SP, Ah Hua and Yannie who appeared like hard core spammers and blog lovers. Now where are these trio? They have evaporated into thin air!! Life is just a journey of illusions before our eyes. It is okay to move on for greener pastures.

      Delete
  30. SK, when Yannie and Ah Hua introduced your blog to me. I feel phai seh to left a comment you know. Since everyone is like so friend to each other, so close and can comment anything leh. *Blush*. From my opinion, your blog really looks professional to me. Yeah it is a success when you can blog about daily topics that some of us gone through, includes mini game, share with us your photo posting scripts and so on. It is not easy also if to write blog in two languages.

    1. Well for me, I still have many rooms for me to improve. But in terms of cooking and baking post. I have the feel like you is that we have the responsibility to let the readers to know the exact turn up form my cooking and baking experience. For me, every steps are very important to readers. I'm not sure whether they just glance through and didn't read in detail, but we have the responsibility to write it down every steps. All those cooking and baking entry majority are linky post to any event I have participated. We are here to share our experiences and not just about blogging.

    2. Some photos can be copied, get from else where or snap from anywhere. But blogging about cooking and baking are all comes from our baking experience that we cannot hide and lie.

    3. Cooking and baking post I definitely need more time doing so to blog. Before blogging, I need to make that dish/baking out. That will make it a day -after baking, snap photos, choose and edit photos to blog. Then, when everything settle, I will blog about the process and ingredients I had. Arrange the photos from before and after the baking outcome. Probably need about 1hr plus.

      Delete
    4. I can choose to post very briefly but there are some tips I really like to write it out. Sorry if I'm being so long winded. On the other hand, my blog phase will be my cooking/baking journals for me to refer back in the future too.

    5. Maybe Angeline will need to open up another blog to highlight on her culinary skills and name the Blog - Sous chef Angelina de Taiping.

      Now I understand why some bloggers have 3-4 separate blogs that cover different topics. I already have 2 blogs now and one talks rubbish under the sun and the other is my hobby.

  32. I like the way you present your post. It made (force) us to read word by word! LoL! I used to take longer to think of a post but these days time is scarce and I have to come out with something in less than 10 mins or there will be no post at all :(

  33. I miss reading blogs, I miss writing blogs, I miss leaving comments, I miss my readers,.... may be you don't believe.

    Anyway, I salute SK for the effort and time spent in composing a post. I usually take less than an hour to do so.

    So, SK is deserved to have so many readers and supporters. Keep up your good work, SK.

    2. You are such a strange blogger who misses so many things and still say maybe we don't believe!! Believe what? You were once so expert in multi tasking that no one could beat you but today all is in the history and growing cob webs la yet you still faithfully come here to leave comments in SK's post only. How sad!
