As stated in the title, this is my 100th published post in this blog.
Of course, if included those which still in draft and not published yet, is already much more than this figure.
Those articles that is not published is some sensitive topics like politics, vendetta, and some other sensitive stuffs that might offense some people as well as get myself into trouble.
But those that published to the public, it is at total of 100 posts.
This blog is setup at 25th August 2007. On a sub domain name of a free hosting service.
First post was at 3rd September 2007, where I just posting craps at that time.
I did not expect anyone to read my blog at that time anyway.
After a few post, this blog was just left unattended until 8th March 2008.
I was re-posting the election live result from Malaysia Kini.
And after that, it was left untouched again.
(Disclaimer: I do not mention who is the blogger in this part, so no action shall be taken on me.)
Until somewhere around June/July of 2008, I was engaging a blogspore battle with a blogger who are plagiarizing someone else articles as if those were her own articles. This blogger is quite a famous blogger at that time, she have at minimum 40 comments in each of her post at that time. But after her secret was revealed, people are started to leave her blog.
She was one of the pioneer in cam whoring blogging culture. I had initiated the attacks is due to I can not accept the facts that she is plagiarizing other people’s work and earn from it. And also, they way she is treating her reader is unacceptable as she never reply any of her commenters. She was just enjoying the fame and letting everyone threat her like a queen while she is treating all her readers as her pawn.
Of course, I finally able to force her to reply in order for an attempt for a counter attack. But the most ridiculous thing is, most of the time she is pretending like a reader and attack me by using an anonymous identity.
Since there was really a lot of readers are her fans, they are assisting her for the counter attack as well.
During the war time, I had changed my blog’s domain to a free domain name http://garfield.wtf.be.
And this blog had changed its name to “WTF!? Not Syok Ar? Bite Me Lar!” in order to match the domain name.
The name of this blog as well as the domain name is chosen was intentionally to annoys those fans of that blogger when they are trying to come to my blog and make havoc.
I get quite a decent amount of traffic that time, but what I want that time is not traffic, it is a battle that I want for trying to cease the cam whoring blogging culture. Obviously I had failed to do the revolution, since there is so many people is cam whoring in their blog nowadays. Blogging in Malaysia and Singapore has become like posting pictures into an online photo album now.
Since then, I started to try write some useful articles in order to change the mindset of Malaysian and Singaporean. I had started to become active in blogging at this time. I hope that I am able gain awareness of these people that weblog is not a photo album or a diary, it is an online journal where it acts as our personal publication platform. Other words, an online magazine or news paper of our own.
This is the reason why you never see me posting any of my own picture in this blog.
The only pictures that is published is just those pictures of events, desktop screen shots and other pictures related with the article I am writing.
I had remain anonymous all these while to preserve my principles in the blogging industry.
Of course, I also wanted to remain anonymous due to I do not want any trouble from some of the articles I wrote, especially the “Potong” article.
Besides me, I found that there is quite some number of bloggers who are also have the same blogging principles like mine.
Examples like Cleffairy, Nose4News, Kelvin and as well as some other bloggers that I did not mention their name here.
At somewhere around mid of May 2009, this blog had change its domain name again. This time is changed to a top level domain where its domain ownership fully own by me. And here it is, http://garfield.in where it is the URL that u are reading this article now.
The decision of this changes is done under undesired circumstances.
The owner of the domain name wtf.be had decided not to provide its sub domain for free and are imposing charges for using its sub domain. Those who refuse to pay and continue, their sub domain will be pointed to a domain parking site to earn from the redirected traffics.
Myself, are a very stingy person. I am not willing to pay for
