Thank You

I've mentioned a few times now, how blogging is a new world on its own. And that one of the best part is meeting and making friends with fellow bloggers.

In fact, I've never met anyone through blogging face-to-face yet... all is very virtual! But somehow, I think there is a connection, especially if your blog is similar to theirs or they like your content.

Making friends is nice, but to get a feature on their blog is even better. Kind of a recognition lol.

The First Welcome
My first mention was on my first book, Batik Inspirations written by HappySurfer. I bumped into her blog and found it very interesting and left a comment. Then next, she wrote a post on batik and also on the book.

She wrote so well, and even know that there were 2 versions. She really did her homework alright! Her writing was such a big welcome to the blogosphere :)

Entrepreneur List
Then in March, another young Malaysian entrepreneur, Daniel Carventus, is compiling a compilation of 21 Young Malaysian entrepreneurs. There was a voting and I was in the list of nomination. I don't think I made the cut of the top 21, but nevertheless, it was nice just being nominated :)

Apparently the nomination list has been taken down, but here is the link on the 21 Young Malaysians Entrepreneurs anyway.

Two Times Feature
Business Blogger by the name of Yuan Huann has also been doing a compilation of blogs every month end. And I was featured twice! Wow, so cool! haha.

He gives you a quick take on what the other bloggers are doing. In fact, through this, I've made a few other blogger friends! And his feature on other bloggers blogs are quite interesting! :)

On A Serious Note
And finally, a last mention recently by another young blogger as well. Ray Chung in his online journal did a post on me - as a Spotlight on Young People.

This was a more serious take and it was great to be featured. He interviewed me via email with quite a list of questions targeting on the entrepreneurial side. He edited the answers and then put it up.

He did quite a fair bit of research as well and gave a good background on myself - he even knows my Facebook link and all the other links! Now that is one blogger who takes his work seriously! Honestly, he can be a journalist! :)

*I've mentioned to Ray, do I sound like that? haha

To HappySurfer, Daniel Carventus, Yuan Huann and Ray Chung, many thanks for the features. It is really a big welcome for a blogger like me! :)

  5. Well, I've my account started up here and there since April. There should be a lot more for me to learn and of course, I need to get used to this live journal writing. Sometimes I'm not too sure if it's okay to write something personal in public.

    Anyway, thank you for sharing and I will try to squeeze my time to read on your page and if you don't mind, I'll just link you up. *smile*

  6. haha...yea, blogging is a rather good way to meet friends...

    I met some real interesting people on the blog... met up and become great friends...
