A dream comes true

Ya’ know, I am so into blogging that I am actually considering doing it full time. The whole experience has just been phenomenal. Of course, in order for me to do it full time, I should be able to make enough to make a decent living. Things like PayPerPost or Bloggerwave and other means such as sucking up to Nuffnang come to mind. But with my page rank level and not so great traffic plus Nuffnang now going on get-clicked-to-get-paid basis, I wonder if I will be able to make a decent living.

But alas!!! I read something in the comics newspaper yesterday and I was thrilled!
Isn’t it good news? Full time writers with the gomen as your employer! What can one ask for? Ok, they said writers but I think they meant bloggers since they say “cyber war”. It is “… among their key strategies in preparation for the elections”. Elections? I thought they said not so soon? Hmmmm……

Anyway, I wonder how much they will pay. Since the new increased pay scale just kicked in on 1 July 2007, I reckon the pay wouldn’t be that bad. And then… ya’ know… working with gomen! Means no overtime! Yay! Hmmm… I wonder if they will allow their writer to work from home.

I wonder when the application form will be out, cause I think I wanna apply for the job. Imagine get into office, read stuff on the cyber-world… read more stuff… do some analysis… make a report… do more analysis… write up an article wiith something subtle to counter all those ‘lies’ in the cyber-world.

Oh wait… I think that seems like the working requirement of the modern slavery world… working with gomen doesn’t carry a slavery culture… it will probably be something like…

Get into office… go for breakfast… come back read newspaper… go for tea… come back check mail… go for lunch… take a nap… call your bf or gf to tell them you’re sleepy… check mail… go afternoon tea… then really read some stuff of the net… and… issue a statement like “ALL BLOGGERS ARE LIARS!”… ahh… a job well done. Don’t you just love such job.

Any full-time-blogger wannabe wanna join me in applying for the job?

J.T. said...

Me, me, me... I want to blog full-time and get paid for putting crap out there (All Bloggers are liars!). hahaha

Let me know when the application form comes out. Sounds ideal. I can do it from home. After all, if we have internet connection at home, we do not need to go in an office to blog. We can do it in our pyjamas (and whatever else other people use.. or don't use! :D).

I swear to uphold the 'gomen' culture of "jomm ..pergi minum" (come, let's go and drink) if the job requires me to blog from home. Wake up, drink coffee, read blogs, run to bathroom (because forgot to do it when I first woke up),analyse, have breakfast, go back to computer, scratch head, analyse, write up an article and slam a blogger who said my big boss got no brains, drink coffee, watch TV, back to computer and do my emails, oh.. forgot lunch, ok late lunch break which spills over to tea. ... woo hoo.. my day is done. Where is my pay cheque? Hey! I got extra this month.. what's this? A pay raise? I am so glad I served my country. :D

eh, how u end up being an accountant ah? can tell ah?

Last time i went to immigration deparment in Putra Jaya. What happened was, it only left me and another couple to pay the fees and it was 4:30pm already. And then i asked the counter when will it be our turn to pay it. Then the Malay girl said, "pay tomoorw, 4:30pm already, must count the money now, bus will leave at 4.45pm to go home! You say lah..

But imagine i'm in their position, what a great job to do..All things can do slow and steady..No rush..Kekekkee..What a great job.

Back to your job application, you should try it too! I think your life will change if you really got the job!! :P

day-dreamer said...

Wah zewt... you really into this?? Helping them to counter "allegations" to me is something like you know, helping them "lie". Because... *you know what I'm going to type here*

Oops! Did I go too far?? Will I be nabbed under the ISA?? *scared*

Anyway, I think your blog traffic is quite high already. Compared to mine. So, you should be able to earn. Enough or not, is another problem. :D

confessing7girl said...

ahh if anyone can blog for a living u r one! u r the best blogger about stuff ever!!!!!!! ok im pretty new to this blog world but u truly r the best!! i love to come here since u write about all this different stuff... somedays i dont get it (political stuff) but i read it anyway (i read i learn) and other times u r just way tooo funny!! :D

ZEWT, no I dont think you will ever contemplate writing for the govt. against socio-politico bloggers. You ar not the type to sell your soul for manna. But I am really looking forward to engage (and embrace if they are worthy opponents) with this hired-hands. Bring 'em on.

Tine said...

Oh hell yeah, why not? If those in the gahmen can get on with such a lifestyle, so can I. Plus with the pay increase and all that (blardy hell, public sector nia. Cheh!), it's lookin' mighty enticing ;)

Not that I think working with the 'gomen' is the best job i've EVER had but I actually work in the gomen and although the eat-chat-eat-look busy-wait for 5pm pattern might apply to MANY agencies, not all of us have that, er, privilege.

On top of that, I work plenty of overtime hours (in the words of my boss, "If you cannot finish, you stay back la") AND i don't get OT allowance.It's taken me years to get a mere RM500 pay rise and that's simply because I got promoted (one year increment is only RM90. Please shoot me). don't get me wrong, I totally know what you mean about the laid-back attitude of some ppl in the gomen.

But there are some of us who are worked to the bone and I believe in what I do, even if it's not appreciated by my superiors. Like that saying, "If I'm not a monkey, why am I being paid peanuts?"

alan zed said...

zewt said...

confessing7girl - hahaha... so i guess i can be a comedian too heh... maybe i should look into that :)

KEF - ahh... why not? was just being sarcastic anyway...

Jemima said...

Somehow I've a feeling that you're only saying it.. it's simply not you to jump on their bandwagon. ;)

zewt said...

Angel Eyes - i will make a personal recommendation for you.

Huei - wahhh... you know a lot of things eh? but this job no siren ler... sigh...

clare - hahaha... you get the message or not?

anon at 11.57 - hi there. i understand what you mean. i have friends who work with them and they are only answerable to themselves. some choose to join the crowd while others like you... choose to do what is right. well... we all get paid peanuts anyway.

alan zed - hahaha... indeed, dream come true!

Winn said...

err buy my liucas is not halal.....

Doreen said...

full time blogger? Er....not for me lar, so cannot apply together with you. But I support you mentally all the way. What is gomen btw?

Rashikaps said...

Not enough work and you'd be bored in a month, I bet. Those people are made out of other stuff. :)

ehon said...

if they pay me in A$ then I might consider. :D

Angel Eyes said...

Kinda stressful now. Might need a break for a while.

*terrible headache*

Russ said...

'imagine get into office, read stuff on the cyber-world… read more stuff… do some analysis… make a report… do more analysis..'
I'll die if my job was like that.. i'll feel like im back on college.. kekeke :P

Working with the gomen sux, bcoz they are 90% LAZY, especially when you are trying to get some of them to do stuff for u, they are so sub-standard.. no such thing as planning, or coordination or teamwork, or the simple willingness to work. trust me, ive done it before 1st hand.. and the salary is seriously underpaid beyond comprehension..

5xmom.com said...

They will have to beg me and pay me a six-figure income every month. I am one helluva good blogger for them, you know? Cos I can write about lies like life itself. (to Zewt's readers, I am joking partially)

may said...

I wouldn't mind doing that part time, haha! I'd love those tea breaks, 10 times a day...

rinnah said...

Where's the application form? LOL! But seriously, I would love a job like that (not the lying bit la) but to be able to blog and surf all the time. Hey, waitaminute... that's what I do all the time! Nope, I'm bored outta my skull. Heh!

CRIZ LAI said...

Hey Zewt...i support you in getting the job. Sounds so fun and easy. Tea time dunno how many times also. Haha..

BTW, here's the 4th TBA from me :) Thanks!

Nak Tak Nak said...

I have applied already, you slow coach you. They say I am not eligible. They say they want someone to whack bloggers not them.

zewt said...

bongkersz - cannot ler.. didnt u read the title... look who is recruiting ler... think i am not qualified.

Winn - hahahaha... definitely... and cant bak kut teh.

Doreen - gomen is the malaysian way of saying... government...

rashikaps - hahaha... you've got a point... but i can always do my own blogging... know what i mean?

ehon - how about RM10,000?

Angel Eyes - i tot you just got back from holiday?

zewt said...

russ - haha... i am sure that kinda life is not for an outdoor person like you. i wouldnt say i am an indoor person... but... the unlimited minum time is quite attractive... hah! their pay may suck... but hourly effective pay...they win hands down.

5xmom - 6 figure income a month!!! wooooaaahhhh... that amount to write about lies... i mean life... i will kill for it! aha :P

may - 10 times not enough ler...

rinnah - better not let your boss know it...

criz lai - thanks... i guess i have to change the 'thrice awarded' ...

Kata Tak Nak - hahahaha... anyway, i dont qualify... look at the people employing...

cindy said...

I wonder if they're paying through PayPal or bank-ins. Hehehehehe..

Might consider if they're offering a 4 figure salary, medical & dental benefits (oh and a car too!). :P

Clare said...

Of course I do. Working with the garmen is the easiest way to earn money, you know. I dont have to use my brain, I have unlimited tea-breaks, long lunch breaks, plan my vacation in advance, ask people to refer to another department when I'm lazy, get pay rise occasionally, etc...

Now who wouldn't want to blog for them, right? And since bloggers are liars, I can whack any blogger I want just to prove the garmen is 'correct'all this while...wei, they are paying me to do so, what can I do?

me said...

don't blame me. i've got cotton wools for brain :-(

Rabbit said...

aiyah i thought u were joking when u thought of starting PPP. U real real mia!

zewt said...

cindy - i am sure they will pay 4 figure salary... but the car part would be a bit difficult.

Clare - yeah lar... just everyday issue a statement.. bloggers are liars... then next day... bloggers cheats.... ahhh... job accomplished.

me - oh c'mon... no need to be so humble.

rabbit - maybe i will do it if my PR hits 5... if that happens ler...

rachel said...

why not? i will quit my day job.... uh~ i mean studying and join u. i think i can tell a lie or two. anyways, bloggers are liars. so how hard can dat be for us rite? haha~!!!

Freethinker said...

interestin but I'm just afraid i cant do it my way , my thoughts and my style... instead...their way, their thoughts ( if any ) and their style
