  • Nasir, anak jati Penang.  Air Itam, Bayan Baru, Balik Pulau. Not really a blogger.  Not a celebrity either.  Disappointing?  LimCS (real blogger) was supposed to be here. Surprised to be invited by another fellow blogger, Cerventus. Gotta have wife/spouse… then work on the other 3wives, and 1husband. BLOG IS PRIME in Malaysia!

  • B.L.O.G.s are PERSONAL
    • A national phone survey of bloggers finds that most are focused on describing their personal experiences to a relatively small audience of readers and that only a small proportion focus their coverage on politics, media, government, or technology . Blogs, the survey finds, are as individual as the people who keep them. However, most bloggers are primarily interested in creative, personal expression – documenting individual experiences, sharing practical knowledge, or just keeping in touch with friends and family.
