My Island Penang
  • Features


This Award is created for my fellow bloggers, website owners and most of all ordinary people trying hard to write and blog.

This Award is given from my heart. So you ask me why I think it is important? It is because after at least 10 years from just browsing the net reading and ogling (still doing it) at website, I gathered my nerve to own a web site and write blog for 2 years. Still it did not make me a more outgoing person.
I am still a non talker but in here, I now write or talk too much.

My Islang Penang Blog Award
Malaysian Blog Badge

It takes people like you, honest voices from the community, technology experts and artists all coming together like the pieces of a puzzle. It was created to bring all members of this community together. And to let them know that what they write, someone do read.

I was really inspired by some work from home mums and dads and how they make it.Some ideas are open and friendly so I want them to be recognized for their efforts. I can feel the excitement and effort they have put in through the many hours of sleepless nights.

Well, without the help of you bloggers and web masters I would not have make it. Within one year of serious writing. My web site is at the top 3% mark. Don't ask me how much money I made because it was not about money making online. It is about knowing you can do it online. With no real IT or html or whatever knowledge, but just the passion and the drive.

At the encouragement of a good friend, I added a few things and I started to see real money coming in last year.

Wish List

I have to cut the story short and get into telling you about the award I am giving to you. Will it become something big or not, it is up to us. But I do have a wish list this year, and that is organizing a meet next year if ever this award gets popular.

I am not, and still will not claim that I am a great web master nor a great photographer but I give this award because you inspire me to write. You encourage me and it is awesome for a half century old lady like me.
