It has already been 3 months since I started this blog, and it has been an incredible journey. I made this blog my new year resolution and I am proud to say I am still keeping to it, with no sign of stopping. I made it a point to “launch” this blog on 1 Jan 2007 and I actually asked Jules to remind me to “launch” my blog. She so willingly complied.
I remember I was very excited when Patrick Teoh dropped me a comment, and a lot of people were wondering if it was the real Patrick Teoh. Well, how many Pat Teoh are there anyway? Then I remember the time when comments started rushing in when I blog about a romantic tale and asked readers to guess the ending. 20 comments for that entry and I was feeling rather ecstatic.
Next, I bumped into the first blog that linked to As Zewt As It Gets… it was Huei’s Dead Boredom Seeking Freedom. Thanks Huei, you didn’t know you were the first eh? By then, I also installed my first html code… the hits counter. Thanks everyone for giving me my 10,000+ hits thus far.
It led to the first time I posted an entry of pictures I took in my everyday life, what an interesting picture indeed. Then I sort of recycled an entry I posted to TheStar earlier regarding Malaysian drivers and it hit a new high with 24 comments. The blogging interest began to take off and I sort of did a series on blogging, talking about time, topic, readership and overall blogging. Thereafter, I had my first tag!
Next, I posted the infamous entry on Chinese and it currently holds the highest record for comments with a total of 74. It prompted me to do a few entries on Chinese and Chinese culture which led to some really intellectual comments, which excites me.
Then I attended the Bloggers Gathering organised by Wingz and it was a very enjoyable time indeed. Managed to meet up with some fellow citizens in the blogosphere and I don’t know why… many people think Zewt is a girl.
Next were the 2 entries I did on top scorers in the SPM and again, it managed to attract some really interesting comments. Co-incidentally enough, one of the readers here is actually a friend of one of the top scorer in the country and he gave his insights on the issue, the view from his side of the world.
It was then that arguably the most significant event of my life took place. It was then my mom suddenly collapsed and left me without a word. It was then that I found out mom was hiding something from us. It was then I learnt so much about mom, and how mom has already planned her departure. I pondered on why mom acted in a certain manner and how successful mom was. It was also the time when my blog hit a phenomenal level of readership, with an average of 336 unique readers during that eventful 8 days.
It was then Nuffnang secured As Zewt As It Gets’ first advertisement. Thank you guys!
I know it may sound like some oscar speech but all these will never be possible without you guys (and gals)… seriously! And oh... I was featured in this blog and Nuraina was kind enough to mention me in her blog which lead to Zewt being mentioned in Malaysia Today. It has only been 3 months, but where do I go from here? Well, let’s just say I will try to keep those interesting entries going… Meanwhile, Happy 3 months old to As Zewt As It Gets!
P/S: That picture was just for kicks… hehe…
