My Advertising Space On This Blog
我諗我哋大部份博客都會喺自己個blog擺啲廣告位, 反正都份擺住喺度就等收錢, 其實都冇壞啫.. 至於可以收到幾多錢就梗係另當別論啦.. 就講返我自己, 五年前開始到今日, 我都賺唔到RM100囉!! 幾可憐呀, 哈哈!! 同嗰一班每個月輕輕鬆鬆就有張四位數支票袋袋平安嘅博客比較, 簡直係爭天共地啦.. 點都好, 係我自己個blog唔爭氣, 冇得怨人嘅, 所以今日講第樣嘢啦.. 呢幾日寫咗啲scripts, 對我呢個blog上的廣告做咗啲「玩皮」嘢(如果你有留意到)嚟表達自己嘅睇法.. 係㗎, 我有時都可以頗反叛㗎, 呵呵~~ :p
i think most of us place advertising space on our blogs to earn money, since it's no harm as we just leave it there and get paid for huh?? of course, how much money we can earn from doing that is another story.. take myself as an example, i started doing this since 5 years ago and yet my earnings is not even RM100!! hahaha, so pathetic and such a big difference from that group of bloggers who can easily get a 4-figure cheque every month.. anyway, that's because my blog isn't capable so no complaints and i shall talk about another story.. lately, i wrote some simple scripts and did something "naughty" to those ads placed on my blog (if you have noticed) to express my voice.. yes, i can be quite rebellious sometimes, hehe~~ :p

Ads on My Blog - Remove advertising agent's logo
第一, 俾錢打廣告嘅係廣告商客戶, 唔係個廣告agent, 唔好趁機會喺小小一個角落宣示主權.. 所以我寫咗啲script將佢拎走, 忽然開朗呀~~ :p
first, the one who paid for the ads was the advertiser and not the agent, so don't take the opportunity to place a logo at the corner to claim the sovereignty.. hence, i wrote a little script to take it off, looks so much better now~~ :p
任你話我「吃不到的葡萄是酸的」, 以上純粹為本人個人意見, 大家可自由聽取或一笑而過.. 如有同意者想做返同樣嘅嘢, 可直接電郵本人, 本人非常樂意分享所寫嘅scripts, 嘻嘻!! :D
it's up to you to comment this post as a "sour grape" but these are indeed purely my personal opinions, either take it or leave it.. if anyone who agrees with me and want to do the same thing on the ads, you can send me an email and i am happy to share the scripts i have written, haha!! :D

    3. Congtratulations for being first commenter on this post wo, Sharon

      I think this agent advertiser also covers singapore right? I saw a few logos of countries when i login

      am similar time as you, SK. ony know about this compay through word of mouth by other bloggers. Otherwise tarak tau. That time this company was still small kot. I saw quite a number of ads appeared in my blog. but that time i dont have much readers. those readers that come never thought of click the ads and see. sometimes also due to scared la. those time not many bloggers and there are many virus. People tend to feel scared to click on the ads. so for donkeys years, i never get to cash out

      hahaha..ya lor...sesame now also naik harga liao la. not cheap you know

      Delete
    4. Sharon..you should use wordpress as they block all ads, since you are not putting any one of them in your blog. It's also better than blogger and better searchability.

      Delete
    5. But wordpress has very limit space, not enough space for picture, actually I do like wordpress but thinking of that, I better remain in blogger better. Unless I got very famous then only switch because if want to upgrade the storage need to pay extra for it.

      Delete
  2. About 2 years ago, when I started my blog, for play-play purpose la, I also set up a space for advertising.. Was a green horn that time, didn’t know it’s so complicated geh, needs traffic and all.. I simply set up, follow what others are doing, thought money very easy to earn, konon pay per click wer, chey, mana tau, aftr so long, the earning is still RM0.00, walaueh, malu mau cakap, so I removed everything already.. Now it’s just a personal blog for my own eyes, own record..

    1. Actually I also envy those bloggers hor, earning so much from blogging.. Same figure or maybe more, if they are working.. Imagine if working full time, and also blogging earning this much, ma double?

    2. Actually hor, I feel you got potential to make your blog into a money-making one, I think your blog can generate lots of money one leh.. You so canggih, can do this that, I think can do one leh.. See you want or not jeh.. But if you decide to do it, then it’s like a commercial blog jor, sometimes will be fake-fake hor, cannot so straight fwd like now jor.. But if you like, can consider la..

      Delete
    3. No la, I won’t say sour grapes la.. If wana say sour grapes, many people punyer blog also sour grapes liao lor.. Hehehehe.. As long as you know the purpose, then ok lor.. Like my purpose for starting blogging is not about earning money or earning traffic.. Really.. I never expect people to know about my blog also.. It’s just for my own record ever since having Kz, like a milestone report like that.. Then mana tau, blog-blog har, came across your blog, and Meow’s blog.. Meow’s blog coz her’s is about kids, food, and I searched a lot on kids stuff lastime..Then slowly started to comment on your blog, then your readers come to mine, and that’s how my blog now got comments lor.. Come come go go same people, I got nothing to complaint too..

    4. Yeah I remember this blog stalker and silent reader who became a blogger herself - PRINCESS RIBBON!
      Your blog is so original and interesting for all your transparency to share happiness and vent any frustrations. I just hope that you could blog at least once a week. Just like you looking forward to read new posts often, we look forward to read your new posts too!

      Delete
    5. yeah.. at first also just follow friends to blog and never have thought i could hang on for so long.. and of course, started blogging just for fun and not for publicity.. but i admit, for once i really thought of using my blog to earn money, only that this blog is to pariah, so i gave up the idea and continue to blog about just what i like, hahahaha!! :D

      Delete
    6. want money then have to do PR with the agent advertiser company la . Only then they will know the blog and send some ads to your blog.

      At least this co paying money la. Got some company that when click click wait till long neck then amount near the cash out point then suspense your acoount or worst tarak pay langsung!

      You want you sure can make money through blogging one, SK. I had a friend who used to boo hoo a lot about pimping out blog and doing paid post making blog become not original and so on.

      Then when desperate...also will join in the band wagon. Now earning big buck. Sometimes one paid post can earn a few hundreds ringgit malaysia per post leh.

    7. I started blogging since 2007 motivated by food reviews for free. During then, kids were small and I used to travel around with my in laws and I got the chance to visit various makan places. Some were quite away from the city area. So I thought why not I create a blog for it.

      Then I realized lots of folks earning money via ads and I can't do that via wordpress. So in 2009, I decided to open a blogger account. Anyway, the earnings are very pathetic. I guess a lot of work needed to be done to make the blog popular.

      Delete
  3. Except that I think they (the agents) already blocked you from showing anything. I don't see anymore ads on your sidebar.

    I'm not as rigid as you are lah. I am fine with how it is with slide 1 and 2. Actually I just treat this as "bonus" income without me doing anything, and I put the ad units as inconspicuously as possible. Actually from the beginning it is already an unfair deal la, usually when an agent introduce a "kang tao" to you, the agent will keep 10% or 20% commission. This one, the agent keeps probably 90% (or maybe 99%) of the pay and distributes loose change to the blog owners. If really want to be treated fairly, I think the only way is to engage the advertisers directly. If your blog has at least 100k views per month, you can go for that.

    I am surprised with slide 3. They do that??? I never pay attention to the ad units to notice all this time hahaha! Maybe I should look into it too. This is too much for me. I don't mind the agent advertise themselves, but plugging other people's blog on MY blog is too ridiculous. We should be paid for those!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To be precise, I think they keep 95% and you take 5% chicken feeds.
      99% is a bit ridiculous.
      I was so ignorant over whatever ongoing blog ads abuses until this Thambee's sharp eyes pointed out. I really thought the Slide 3 was written by SK!

      Delete
    2. because my blog is a nobody blog, that's why you don't even see any ads being placed here.. actually got one or two ads being placed here, but very rare and for just a brief moment, that's why you are not lucky enough to see one, if you do, go buy 4D!! hahaha~~

      yeah, i have been very particular about the earnings but not now lah.. already gave up and whatever they want to pay me.. i agree that they probably just fork out 10% to be given to us.. so once i got RM100, i'll cash out and remove all the ads, that's what i told myself.. hehehe~~

      Delete
    3. LOL...i dont think they blocked SK la. Terbalik it is sk who blocked them. I seldom see ads in sk blog too before this. only one was the poslaju or something ads in sk blog.

      Not easy to engage advertiser directly as this agent advertiser also have terms and conditions that we may not display ads from South east asian in our blog

      as for USA punya advertisers not easy to get as they have rules and regulation. mr G also making it harder for them to place ads in blog with this and that penalty.

      anyone have any kang tao for direct ads?

      Delete
    4. If your blog grow big enough to place direct ads, then you should show Mr N and Mr G the finger. You don't need and you don't want something taking up ad space in your blog that pays you RM 0.50 every week when you have something that pays you maybe RM 50 or RM 500 every week.

      Delete
    5. if got 50 sen a week also have to curi curi smile lo. More than 1 year also barely RM50. Now baru half tank. But to delete it like rugi pulak. Basic kiasu mode la. what to do.

      LOL ...unless willing to join their band wagon and be a more active member lo.

      Last time easier la to get ang moh overseas advertiser. Now harder. They not only look at the PR(Page Ranking) but also have a lot of terms and conditions.

      Terbalik now more China advertisers. But have to know Mandarin. Manyak susah if banana like me.

      Delete
    6. Wait until you can withdraw then delete lor. For now, just enjoy your blogging and don't give it a damn. However if you really want to earn more money, I guess you need to put in more efforts and try to get invites from the agents to cover events. But this will take up a lot do your time as well as you have to be consistent and cannot happy happy attend one event and mia another event.

    1. I was often wondering how much those ads were being paid to bloggers on monthly basis. To me it should be a minimum of RM250 upwards!

    3. tak faham what you mean, Anay

      You mean the agent advertiser paying to the bloggers how much per month? I dont think they go by per month leh. More like per post. The agent get an advertiser then recommend the blogger name to the advertiser. if ngum then the advertiser place ads la or engage the bloggers to write paid post. From there got money la. That is actually what happen to a friend who is with another agent advertiser la. So the closer you are with the agent advertiser the more likely you get "work" lo. sometimes one post can get few hundred RM le. nOt like here,,,one click baru 20 sen...beli gual gula also not enough leh

      Delete
    4. I think there's a formula to calculate how they pay you but it will be complicated. Google it and you may find some insights on how they pay you and how much they take in.
      Me too,I will cash out after earning the minimum sum then I decide whether to continue.

      Delete
  6. Wah, so clever can block out the agent's logo. I note that they put it there when there are no ads to be placed on our blog. But for me, I don't mind lah. Just leave it as it is.

    1. The 3rd one, I agree with you 100%. But then, the agents want to make money and since these chosen few write sponsored posts, well, the agents will promote them.

      Delete
    2. I also panas hati lah when I see these promoted content being advertised on my space. But siapa lah aku? Betul tak? My blog also does not get fantastic traffic, so I can't say anything.

      Delete
    3. I put up the ads just out of curiosity. I wanted to know what it is like and how much can people earn from it. So I found out that if your blog is very famous, lots of traffic, then baru can earn a lot from advertising. Like you, I also did not earn much.

      Delete
    4. But I prefer it that way lah. Because once you get "famous", then you are expected to do all those sponsored posts and write ups which I personally don't like. I don't want any obligations to anyone because my blog is just for hobby and not for commercial purposes.

      Delete
    5. And honestly, sometimes when I go into other blogs, I get irritated if they have those pop up ads. It becomes a nuisance pulak for the blog visitors. And some have automatic redirection to certain sites. I hate that and stoped visiting such blogs.

      Delete
    6. But seriously, is the agent aware that you did these modifications? I am sure they won't be too happy but who cares right? This is your blog and you do as you please.

      Delete
    7. By the way, I don't seem to notice any ads here whenever I visit, Maybe those people saw your little creative trick and decided not to place the ads.

      Delete
    8. I cannot understand why those ads only showed up several hours daily. It made me think that the advertisers are paying on hourly basis now and not daily. The trend is changing very strangely like hiring a hostess at the night clubs on hourly basis.

      Delete
    9. they won't know because the scriptings in on my blog, a passive one to hide the ads only.. unless someone very close with the agent sees this and report to them, or the agent is doing micromanagement to come and check each and every blog of their member.. but i think they won't do that afterall my blog is just a nobody blog mah.. hehe!!

      errr, not that they blocked me.. but because my blog is peanut blog, they don't place ads here often.. there are one or two, rarely, and also just for a brief moment, you are not lucky enough to see the ads only.. if yes, please go and buy 4D, hahaha!! and i find i got ads at night actually, if you are interested to try your luck.. :D

      Delete
    10. hahaha...hey got so many members. Mana wanna layan you la SK.

      Actually if got people report also good. At least they know what sesame peanut bloggers feel and if they have heart they will revamp the system and help out more of these sesame peanuts bloggers

      Come to think of it they should give more ads to the sesame peanut bloggers leh. They pay RM500 for a paid post...like that can use the RM500 for sesame peanuts bloggers a...each blog click once ..dah 20 sen...can be so many leh. Coverage wider some more. You know those sublime message. We see more of the ads we will feel like wanna try out the service or buy the products mah.

  8. I also wished that I could become a rich man by just blogging! I could just be hardworking and write new posts daily if it becomes my rice bowl. It is just not happening and I better wake up to reality to work a 9-5 job! I wanna scream at this blog managers.

    In America, there are 31 million bloggers! There are 152 million bloggers world wide! If all bloggers are rich, there will be no more poverty in this cruel world. So I started blogging out of fun to share and create spiritual awareness.

    1. yes, for once i have really thought of become a rich person through blogging, muahahahaha!! but of course, reality has to be cruel, i gave up and just blog to my own liking and my own pace, that's it..

      Dont think can be rich by blogging la. Usually those people will have to attend many events one leh.

      Famous easy la. Just simply create a scandal or go cari gaduh with some famous bloggers then can be famous liao. So many bloggers purposely create scandal just to be famous leh. Seen many liao

      Professional blogger have to pandai manage. Have to make the readers happy, advertisers happy and also have to make sure face being seen everywhere.

  9. Talking about SOUR GRAPES!!! You, me and others have seen one too many such bloggers. So unhealthy until created unnecessary frictions. Blogging and reading blogs should be purely for sheer fun, entertainment and learning new ideas. No need to bully the weaker ones and throw one's weight onto others until tension brewed up.
    This gave me an impression that blogs could be an outlet to release tensions and show our true colours.

      BTW, I was curious with one of the ads and I clicked on it. It was a blog written by someone else. The ads looks very different from the rest and thus that tickles my curiosity.

      I don't know if those are nuffnang pay per posts or some blogs paid by the advertisers. It's just another blog like one of us but of course, it blogged about something else.

  15. Yeah, I am also earning pathetic money like you .... (eh ..sure boh... your blog so many hits and comments, I thought you making good money here). Actually, one reason I swtiched from Wordpress to blogger is to take the advantage of the free online ads and earn some revenue but somehow I didn't really put much efforts into my blog , like those groups of bloggers who were so busy covering events and focus their blogs on certain topics.

    I did read about making money on blogs and instead of talking cock on various subjects, it's better to concentrate on one subject and make it professional. Make yourself like you are very well informed in that subject and updated, like new gadgets and news in IT, running and sports events, cooking, cars or even porns... hahha...

    2. Chris...it's not about hits and comments leh. All this if am not mistaken is also depending on your PR with the agent advertising company punya.


      Most of the ads that appeared in our sesame peanuts blogs are "leftovers" la in my opinion. And although these ads appear, your readers tarak click on these ads, you wont get any money. Each click worth 20 sens only. How many times you see these ads in your blog? and out of those times how many readers will be bother to even click at the ads?

      If you kamching with the agent advertiser then when they have advertiser who wanna put ads in specific blog then they will pun in your blog la . Then that one might depend on the traffic lor. More people come your blog then you will get more money la.

      Blog like ours....dream dream dream......

    3. Yeah lor....everytime I go in and check my earnings it's like never move unless I click myself but then I might be blacklisted once they found out. I still finds wordpress is better than blogger in terms of usage and searchability on search engines. I'm thinking of switching back once I withdraw the pathetic money.

      Oh yeah after been almost 6 years I guess I can finally withdraw the money. Reaching $100 soon.hahahha....Pathetic hor?

    4. LOL....kira okay la for your bog. at least have ads appear in your blog for you to click on...shh shh.... mine adui....always like what SK said la...their logo appear or if not it will be ads that advertise about the famous bloggers or paid post ads. How la. Click those no money one leh. Waste my data plan only to click on those.

      I have one wordpress blog but that one is like for trial only la. Maybe am a dinosaur la. Biasa with blogspot coz every thing are tailor made like. Wordpress will be more flexible la for those pandai IT like you and SK la. Both of you can tailor make your blog as you wish in Wordpress la.

      I heard wordpress cannot do paid post or cannot put ads but then i have a friend using Wordpress plateform but her blog can have advertisement and paid post wor. I asked her. She said something about self hosting bla bla bla.....the rest is alien language to me liao Tarak faham what she mean

      Not pathetic la...this means that you are in the sesame peanut bloggers gang lor. you are not alone. LOL. Me too

    5. WordPress blocks scripts unless you host it yourself or put in other hosting servers. I guess this is good too to secure the platform from virus and hacking.

      Aiya.. Unless you have a blog that's appealing to the public, it's not easy to do so though there are ways but you need to work on it. You need to spend lots of time on promoting your blogs like asking nuffnang to advertise for you and pay them. Hahaha...

  16. However, I am ok to let these advertisers place their logo on my blog la. Anyway, as I mentioned before, I don't really give it a damn as I myself have other things to do, besides blogging. So, no time to take care of them la..hahahaha..

    But I do admired the way you put in the efforts to hide their 'presence' in your blog in order to align to your point of views. You are a man of principle! Kudos!

    1. here too ... i mean agents, not advertisers.

    2. actually the logo is just a small matter and quite unnoticeable.. but since i'm doing scripting for the other two cases, might as well lah, afterall just one line of CSS can already hide the logo easily :D

    3. yeah, it won't take a lot of efforts it seems. But I thought can leave it there la, just give them some acknowledgement for the pathetic money...hahaha...

  17. I guess Nuffnang will be piss off when you hider their logo if they found out...muahahahaa... I wonder if they can detect if their logo are not displayed. I guess I don't think so la..since it's just a link and an image. But I am surprise the ads still works. So, they are not so intelligent after all, never thought of the developers' bloggers, or maybe they probably thought that majority of the folks can't /won't do that.

    I guess I am ok to let them display their logo since they are the agent which helps to coordinate both the advertiser and bloggers transactions. Without them, its not so easy to place so many different ads on our blogs as well as oriented it to our blogs.

    However, that's your point of view and I respect it.

    1. haha, i would guess so if they found out.. anyway, the scripts are "add-on" at my client side and doesn't affect them, unless they really micro-manage and come to check every nobody blogs like mine lah, or maybe some good friends with them go and report me, hahaha!!

      Delete
    2. True, they cannot check each and every mega billions of blogs, unless they have a mechanism to do so, like inactivity of the ads but that would be also billions. I am sure they can't be bother la , unless someone whistle blow you....muahahahahaha...

  18. The second one ... hmmmm ..... I was not aware till I read this. Agent advertising for their ownselves on our blogs. Yes, that's irritating! hahahahaha... And I like the way your wipe them off from your blog.

    I wonder would this affects your revenue since nobody will be clicking on it ? Or, would it generate revenue since its the agent ads? If its the latter, I also wanted to do so. No point advertising for them without revenue.

    1. yeah.. for the top i actually hide it, but for the side i put a message to show my "disagreement", hahaha.. anyway, hiding this has no effect on the revenue, because this is considered "internal" so they are not paying you a single sen for this type of ads, so why show?? :p

      Delete
    2. This will not affect sk's revenue as the ads about other bloggers will not bring in any money. readers click or not click will not have any effect, same goes for the agent advertiser ads. Tarak money one even if we click on it.

      Hmm....i wonder if they got give the said blogger money or payment or not if got people sign up by clicking through the said blogger's blog oike to go to the NN website and sign up

      Delete
    3. Kucing - I think there's revenue based on the hits but it's very pathetic. Of course, by clicking on it, there are more $$$. And, if I am not wrong, it also depends on the campaign. Some advertisers paid more while some pay lesser. That's what I read from Google Ads Sense. Not too sure about Nuffnang.

      Anyway , I find that Nuffnang more popular in MY than SG. When I see other bloggers' post, they seems to advertise a lot of events organised by Nuffnang.

      Delete
    4. i think Nuffnang is 20 sen each click if based on the number of click punya. if traffic then dunno how they kira punay liao.

      Argh itu ad tarak sense really worst than NN la. That one duno 1 or 2 sen punya. Some more all over the world so many registered with them ; How they going to sendads to every one and give high amount. Even those famous blogger or popular blogger also earning kacang only under ad tarak sense.

      Yes.... it's something like you pat y back i pat your back la. Advertise about their event then will get some thing back lo. Heard but dunno true or not that some bloggers are paid to attend those event leh. Not bad la if like that. Otherwise would be a waste of petrol and parking just to attend the event and ge goodies bag. Not that hard up leh

  19. Oh... the third one is really a piss off. I didn't know there are such contents, to advertised for other blogs! I didn't receive email from certain brands where they featured a blog for us to read, like when I subscribed to a Christian newsletter, they always posts links of the contents of a Christian post writer. That's ok with me as I can always unsubscribe but I love those posts.

    Another one that I always got is a facebook page on running also feature other runners' post. I am still ok as it gave us insight and tips on running.

    But if its some ads for some paid post of certain products, I guess I will not like it too. Well, thats actually is bullshitting. Nowadays its really difficult to go on the net to research for good products as nearly all the websites or blogs are earning money from the advertisers and praised how good is a product. I gotta turned to forums to do my research instead of reading these reviews.

    1. yes, you also think it's unfair right?? anyway, i think most of the sponsored posts have got some bias elements and not 100% trustworthy.. it's just like advertisements, you pay and of course you want everything good to be told right?? advertisers won't like to pay for bad reviews i suppose..

      Delete
    2. I just clicked on a strange ads and saw a blog posts! hahahha... Maybe these fellas paid nuffnand to advertised for them. Well, dunno but it might generated more revenue for them and higher profit margin.

  20. I won't endorse that too for the third ad and I like the way you cover them. hahahaha... It really piss them off. How can they use other blogs to advertise for other paid per blogs ... this is real irritating but then, aiya...it still all boils down to advertisements and agents will try all methods to increase their revenues.

    ReplyDelete

    1. yeah, and most probably the agent gets paid 100% from the advertiser, takes in 90% and only fork out 10% to be paid to us bloggers??

    2. I think that's common la, they wanted to make money and out of billions of blogs out there, a dollar earn meant a lot!! And, yes, we could get that pathetic 10% ... or lesser.

  21. Initially, I wondered what happens to your blog when I see the yellow texts there where I have to read a few times to try to understand it. Now I know what you meant by it after reading the post. hahaha...

  23. I cashed out once before, it is about RM100+ only. Then, I didn't check at my earning after that already. Now I realize that I have no advertisement on my blog too. Kekekke! May be my blog is uncovered by anyone. Except a few US fitness blog wrote to me, asking me to share info on fitness and helping to promote their health food. I also reject them, as I just want to write what I like to write only. It is my blog, I don't live under people dogma. Chewah!

    1. I have no advertisement on my blog now. No more. I don't mind those invitation asking me to blog about their products or any review of products or recommending their websites.

      Most of the Nuffnang events are in KL, I can't travel to KL all the time, therefore, I will ignore those events too.

      Besides, I am not a full time blogger. I just blog for my own pleasure and my own memory only.

      extra income of course good, but i think i will wait till my earnings reach RM100, then i'll cache out and remove the ads totally lah.. too slow and i don't have the patient~~ :p

  24. Not easy to earn their money la for those sesame peanuts blogs. Mostly even if they give you ads also will be those pay per click kind of ads instead of those based on traffic. The ones based on traffic is much easier la to get money instead of per click.

    Hmmm but then i still have to defend this company la. At least the pay per click amount is a bit higher than that A-no-sense. That one really pitiful leh . So many blogger kena before. Wah see the amount accrued higher and higher then when nearly cash out time they email you say fraud clicks detected and suspense your account. All who kena are those sesame peanuts bloggers. So weird leh....their system is so easy to sabotage people leh. If someone is jealous of your blog or something they could have kept clicking at the ads till fraud detected ma.

    So at least your current advertiser when they dont give you ads your enemy cant keep clicking lo. and not easy to always come here and click mah;///hahaha...unless hardcore spammer like us la

  25. Thous foru figure cheque are those who attend their function and go for those PR thingy la. Meet and greet the advertiser and attend event. Those event some even are paid event leh. You go you get money and you get closer to the advertising company they will give you more ads lo. You help me i help you la. Common sense lo. if not willing to attend event, they tarak masa wanna layan you la. If got time pun will layan the bloggers that they know la.

  26. It is not that your blog is not capable la. Just that you tarak go attend their event and stuffs like that. If you go and hire out your blog then they will point more direct advertiser to you lo.

But the money is more lucrative la

  28. 2. hahaha....opportunist . A good blank space there plus a message. Hmm....but the way you phrase the sentence also very polite and well explained la. Am sure the agent advertiser will understand kot. Hahaha mana tau if they read your blog then saw this they will feel guilty and flood your blog with big ads leh. That time please throw some over here okay

  29. 3. Like what i explained up there. It used to be different. Everyone have opportuinity to appear at the box there last time. But i noticed that after the other little birdie compay appeared, this one changed liao. I wonder did the company changed ownership or what. Now only those like you said carefully selected bloggers are highlighted there. I wonder why? Thought one of their motto is to help lesser known bloggers to promote their blogs. How come those well know bloggers need to be promoted like that. Ya...like you said..some more are paid ads geh,.

  30. I dont feel likethis post is a sour grape post la. At least it is honest. Maybe the said company should read the comments here. It is actually a feedback ma. Not as if they have grown so big as the "royal couple" in malaysia currently that they don;t need to hear the voice of small sesame peanut bloggers like us.

    1. It's everybody's opinion la and I respect that. Some doesn't mind at all as long as they generate revenue in it. However, its not easy to earn big bucks in blogging unless like you mentioned, you got contacts and good network. Then, it will be like a full time job, attending events and talks and go home and blogged about it. And, if you rejected an invite due to some unforeseen circumstances, you may not get it again.

    2. Most who attend events are youngsters. Most doesnt have family commitments then can attend la. Bring Girlfriend or boyfriend attend. For them those event can be like going on a date free of charge. Sometimes they have organise event like gala night....movie premier ...musical premier....all those just go and no need to pay..not bad ma. Just do a simple write up.

      Once married mana ada so much time to go. some more if got children liao.

      Saw many bloggers who are famous once come out join the rat rae or once got married will dissappear from the scene liao.

      SK still single ....hahaha...got chance la....

    3. True...especially if you are working somemore. Where got the time to attend and promote the events? Somemore they got dateline. Who want to read outdated news after a products launches a week ago or more.

      I don't even have the time to blog sometimes as well as commenting on others blogs. Hahaha... Don't mentioned about events.

  37. Yes I notice that your blog had a space on top for advertisements, and now, being grey off by your scripts, haha!

    Last time I did put in one column for NuffNang advertisements, and now after reading your post, I go check back, and I realize that column is gone, haha! Actually I also don't know/forget if I am the one who remove it :p At first, I was thinking since it's free, and can earn some money, so why not? Actually I din't go to check also la, just leave it in my blog. But like you say, how much can we earn la! 'kai sui gam doh jeh'! We are not like celebrity blogger, so cannot rely on that.

    Anyway it's so nice of you to share about this script, too bad not applicable for me, haha! But those who have advertisements on their blog sure can take this as reference~
