My Nuffnang Story

I first started blogging since 5-6 years ago. I wasn’t very active back then and I was still very unclear about which is the best blogging site so I switched between Blogspot to Friendster Blog and then to WordPress.com.
Later on, I came to know about Nuffnang, an amazing blog advertising company that rewards their members with blogger outings like movie screenings, invitation to events and many more activities! In short, it’s a company that focuses on user experience!
Unfortunately though, WordPress.com doesn’t allow any widgets back then. So I decided to make a brave move and switched back to Blogspot in 2009 (although it’s not as user friendly as WordPress) for the sake of supporting Nuffnang! I deleted all my old posts and started everything from 0.
I made a point to cashout once every year end as a bonus to myself. I think this is something that every blogger should take note: We should all blog because of our passion and love for blogging. Never blog for money. Money and fame is just a bonus. And if you saw bloggers who had money and fame from blogging, don’t be jealous cos they deserve it! You’ll never know what they’ve gone through to achieve what they have today.

My First Nuffnang Cheque

OK, enough of the crap and let’s continue with my story hehe… During 2010, I started to join Nuffnang’s movie screening ticket giveaways. To my surprise, I won at the first try! I was so thrilled ^_^ I even blogged about it here. Later on, I tried to enter more contests. With determination, creativity, fate and luck factor all combined together, I get the chance to watch more movie screenings. But I guess due of my shy nature, I seldom mingle with other bloggers face to face. I only contact with them via Facebook and Twitter :p I hope people will not label me as arrogant and proud 🙂

First merchandise from Nuffnang ^_^
Happy and excited!
I hope that Nuffnang will give me another ‘First’ chance since I’ve mentioned so many ‘first’s of mine during my journey with Nuffnang and I’m definitely looking forward to grow old with Nuffnang (young at heart though)!
Come 16 December 2011, 500 bloggers from around the Asia-Pacific region will flock to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for the Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011 in Putrajaya Marriott and I definitely wish to be one of them. The Awards aims to not only honour the region’s best bloggers, but also to bring together blogger communities from across Asia-Pacific. The Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards is brought to us by Volkswagen Malaysia and Putrajaya Marriott (Thank you! Muah!).

I got a little silly and made this from my I <3 Nuffnang badges LOL!
Too bad it’s kinda blur 🙁
