Spiritual Sunday: Empower me

Why do some of us not living victoriously as is intended by God?

Why do some still feel miserable and suffer cycles of defeat even though we are given the seal of the Holy Spirit upon our Salvation.

Why are we not experiencing the joy as promised?

It is because we have not been constantly filled with the Holy Spirit. To be filled with the Holy Spirit constantly is to abide in Christ, everyday.

It is a command and not a choice.

"Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." Ephesians 5:18-20

A good way to start is:

To confess your Sin (we do not experience the fullness/filling of the Holy Spirit if we allow Sin to dwell in us) , read Bible passages aloud in your own quiet time and "Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."


"May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer." Psalm 19:14


Nobody knows, how weak I am
Better than You
Nobody sees, all of my needs
Better than You

And nobody has, the power to change me
To what I was born to be
Jesus be strong, in my weakness
Empower me

Empower me
Like a rushing river flowing to the sea
Lord, send your Holy Spirit
Flowing out through me
Till I'm living as Your child
Victorious and free
Send the power of Your love
Empower me

Nobody's eyes, see through my soul
Better than Yours
Nobody's love, can make me whole
No love but Yours

And nobody has, the power to lift me
To reach for eternity
Jesus break through all my defenses
Empower me

The reply from Nuffnang

I have received an email reply from Nuffnang.

Our server experienced a technical error and went down a few days ago and our service provider couldn't even figure out the reason why. However, our programmer and technicians did our best to bring the server up as soon as possible. We would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused.

Rest assure that in the future we will be conducting more regular check ups with our servers to prevent such circumstances from happening again. We do realize that your decision is entirely up to yours and we do not wish for you to change it merely based on our apology. However, we are glad that we have responsive bloggers under our community such as yourself to improve our services.

Thank you.



A typical customer service reply.
It further cements my decision not to continue with Nuffnang's Ads.

The bane of Blog advertising

The bane of Blog advertising is that when you allow blog advertising on your blog, you are subjected to it's loading speed, but worse of all, the non-loading of it. I had a few experiences of it.

EXPERIENCE: I have been patient thus far. But tonight the Nuffnang Advert widget causes my blog to load so slowly (it was stuck at the Nuffnang Widget for so long) that it has the effect of a 'computer hang'. It was about the time when i published my post "Embracing your fear"! Talk about timing!

The last time that happened was a few weeks ago (recall my previous post- traffic jam) when "One of the servers in Nuffnang is experiencing problems..." and an apology email was sent to us swiftly:

"You may have noticed that you have trouble accessing Nuffnang Singapore and our ads today. One of our servers in Nuffnang Singapore is experiencing problems. There was a hardware-related failure while carrying out an upgrade in the morning. Our technical team is working with our hosting provider to get things back to normal. At the moment we do not specific ETA on when the issue will be resolved, but we will keep you posted.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for bearing with us."

I accepted and beared with it but this time it is too much! It has happened quite a few times already! I wanted to lodge a complaint with them but their sg website loads so slowly, i can't even do that.

DECISION: I am going to take down all Nuffnang advertising on my blog until they resolved their technical problems completely. I cannot let their problems affect my blog traffic. Nuff Said.

Updated: I managed to lodge a complaint with them via their problem ticket system. Awaiting their reply...

Embracing your fear

I like the movie "Batman Begins". I watched it tonight when it was shown on our local free channel. I missed it when it was shown in the cinema sometime back.

It was not simply about beating the villians and the high-tech stunts.

It is about confronting your fear and embracing it...

Analysis of Asian Blog Celebrities 1

Starting from today, i am going to introduce a few of our local asian blog celebrities and analyse why are they so successful. We can all learn from them and modelling successful example can propel us further. Most of the information i gathered are from newspaper reports & interviews and from their blogs.

Asian Blog Celebrities #1

ok. i start with Benjamin Toh, a young blogger (19 years old only) who started blogging only late last year (oh dear! that's 'later' than me) and he already achieved the following traffic. He is presently a final year student at a local polytechnic in Singapore.

Total unique vistors: 407,222
Average Per Day: 1,462

Technorati Rank: 4,978,471
(learning point: Technorati rank may not have direct impact on traffic)

His blog:

Unique Selling Point: I visited his blog. He blogs about anything in his daily life. He blogs about his friends and rants about his school work and part time jobs. He uses lots of pictures to describe events and points. He even writes about Pepsi latest product (not sure whether that was a sponsored post but how i wish big consumer product company will ask me to write a review). He writes with feeling and energy. I think that's why it attracted a lot of youngsters to his blog.

Main target audience: youth (do not underestimate the power of youth traffic)

Visit his blog to see it for yourself.

Spiritual Sunday: It's all about You

An out-of-tune Guitar reminds me that i have to be in tune with God's way.

It is not about me. It's all about You.

I once written a post: Have you ever wondered what life is?

We are created for a purpose.

To drift from one stage of life to another is not living with a purpose.

What's our purpose? Why are we created?

"For by him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether they are kings, lords, rulers, or powers. All things have been created through him and for him."
Colossians 1:16

Prayer: Lord, please let me come back to the heart of worship which is what i am created for.
I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about You
All about You, Jesus
I'm sorry, Lord, for the things I've made it
When it's all about You
All about You, Jesus
*Heart of Worship -Matt Redman

Which Superheroes are you?

I found this fun Quiz. Take the Superhero Personality Test and see which Superheroes are you?

My results:
You are Spider-Man

You are intelligent, witty,
a bit geeky and have great
power and responsibility.

BTW, if you are creative and able to create a program like this, it can drive massive traffic to your site. Need not be too complicated. It can be as simple as the above quiz.

Celebrity Blog rankings

I am curious about the relationship between celebrities and their blog ranks. So i did a bit of research (all public information) and the conclusion is quite obvious. The more popular you are, the more traffic and link you will have for your blog (of course that also depend on whether they write often in their blogs). It is thus an easier task for the celebrity to propel their blogs. It is a matter of whether they want to or are interested in doing so.

It is however, harder to be a celebrity by blogging. I will write about blog celebrity in my coming post. Stay tune.

Why i love blogging

Sometime i wonder, why do i love blogging? Is it the fun of writing? for the creative expression?

I realised that in the real world, i am a no-body. Just a dot in the pack, struggling in the rat race. In the blogsphere i am, not great, but at least somebody. Not by the so-called Technorati ranking or authority but by the fact that at least there are people around the world reading my blog.

Just like the protagonists in the Chronicles of Nardia by C.S. Lewis. In the real world they are just children. But in the magical realm of Narnia, they are heroes fighting evils.

That's why i love blogging.

Stop Wasting Energy

Surging oil prices cause utility bills to increase. To save money and save the earth (by conserving energy) at the same time, we must reduce wastage of energy. We can start by turning off all devices on standby mode which leaches energy.

Go ahead! start switching off the power of your gadgets at source. We must change ourselves first before we can change the world.

Project Heavy Traffic gets first Blog review!

Wow! No, it is not World of Warcraft, i am talking about. it is the excitement of getting my 1st blog review from os9user newsroom . I am so delighted, i don't know what else to say (loss for words) except to say Thank You very much, George (os9user)!.

Although Os9user is an established blogger himself, he still takes time to help fellow bloggers like me.

In his own words, "Any Blog that tries to help other Bloggers, will certainly be added into my link roll, no questions asked.".

Very few professional bloggers are willing to link to or write about low ranking blog for fear of diluting their ranking. OS9user is an exception! Because of that spirit, I salute you!

-----This an extract of the Review from os9user newsroom-----

Project Heavy Traffic (my newest request) does offer something to its readers.Here is a quote from that site.

This blog is an experimental project on how to attract traffic to web sites and blogs from scratch. I will share my experience and the effectiveness of each method gathered and applied. As you witness the growth of this site, it is my hope that you will participate through sharing information and comments.

As you clearly can see from this sniplet, this blog "Shares Experiences" with others. By doing this it won our way into our "heart" and link roll.

I encourage my readers to check this site and read some of the postings. Most of them are short which leaves room for comments or questions to the site owner.

I am not a know it all by any means. The Internet is a very, very big place.

I can tell you how I got started, and what I am doing today, but this site is looking to break records quickly.

If I take the time to read the postings or "Yank" on his feeds, I might learn something I did not know about.

This makes this site all the worth while ( for me ) to check-out.

And you Too !

So wonder over and take a look. I really would appreciate your comments and / or suggestions on this site.

-----End of Extract-----

Hitting the Energy Wall

The world has hit the Energy Wall. Long warned that the natural resources of the earth are depleting faster than we thought, we are still not doing anything about it. The demand for oil has become so inelastic that the price of oil keep rising.

It is time for us to decide. Continue to be dependent on oil and suffer the foreseeable consequences OR actively finding alternative sources of energy and at the same time, try hard to conserve energy. Not just for the sake of being part of the GREEN company but truly for the place we reside in.

Saturday Night Traffic

I have written a few articles on how to increase website traffic. I have achieved decent result thus far.

Some of the more popular articles are:
5 tips on Facebook marketing and traffic
10 Must Have Tips for New Bloggers
5 Tips to increase keyword success
30 Tips to Increase Website Traffic
5 ATTITUDES in making your blog successful

Now let's explore what other bloggers are using to increase web traffic. I will post links of my favorite blog posts on web traffic from time to time. Stay Tune!

TechnoFav Train

TechnoFav Train

My blog buddy, Michael Wong and I have started this Technofav Train to increase the Technorati ranking for those who are involved.

I invite all to join us. Destination: Technorati Highland! Cheers!

Please inform Michael (he is the Train captain) once you have decided to join us here and post the following instruction in your post.

*Start copy*

Hi everyone! In the interests of friendship and promoting our blogs, the purpose of this tag train is to add all the blogs on this list to your Technorati favorites list. In return, everyone else will add you to their Technorati favorites list.


1. Go to (replace yourblogurl with your Technorati id.)

2. Add each and every blog URL on this list as a favorite. Don't worry about Tags as it would take too much time. Click "Add".

3. Then copy everything between and including Start copy and End copy.

4. Paste it into a new blog post in "Compose" mode so all the links are preserved.

5. Add your blog's URL to the end of the list. If you intend to submit multiple blogs then put this list on all your blogs please to be fair to everyone else.

6. Post everything using the title "TechnoFav Train"

7. Next contact 5 friends who aren't on the list and get them to join. The more the better. I am aiming at 1,000 group members, but I'm confident we can find more than that. My secret goal is 5,000 group members and those of you who know me are aware of my promotional persistence. Can you imagine what that will do to all our Technorati rankings?

8. Leave the URL of your post here as a comment and your blog will be updated on the masterlist.

9. Once a week, return to the masterlist and copy it over the list on your blog post.

10. Add the new blog URLs to your favorites. This last step is important because if you don't add new blogs to your favorites list, then those new blogs will end up removing you from their favorites list and then nobody wins.

11. Finally, increased Technorati ranking to all!

Heavy Traffic Blog Review

I chanced upon this blog os9user newsroom and found it to be interesting. It has updated interesting news around the world.

The massive inbound web traffic amazes me. The blog does around 60,000 clicks a month. It drives hundreds of clicks to other sites per day, depending on the story. What attracted me to the blog is not only because of the amazing traffic growth but also the personality behind the blog. os9user is a blogger who is willing to help other fellow bloggers. He will add you on his blogroll if your blog qualifies his requirement of helping other bloggers, quote "Any Blog that tries to help other Bloggers, will certainly be added into my link roll, no questions asked.".

os9user newsroom. Check it out now!

Traffic Jam

Hi, i apologised for the traffic jam on my site. I think it is because of the Nuffnang ads widget. I went to their site t check and it is offline. I went to fellow sites that put up Nuffnang ads to verify and got the same result as mine. So i temporarily put away Nuffnamg widget until they fixed their server problem. Presto! My site is no longer jam!

I apologised to those who wanted to contact me back about the the Project Heavy Traffic link exchange. Please post your blog url again and i will add your site. Cheers!

Enduring the Bear Market

There is a very good article on stock investing written by Prof Chan Yan Chong. I like to read his article as he explains terms in an easy to understand manner.

I find this quote of his very classic "The bear market will only end when investors no longer have the guts to buy into the stock market."

Check it out. Prof Chan Yan Chong's Column

The power of Web Links

While the stock market is in dismay, my incoming links project is soaring!

the latest update: 50 incoming links in just 2 days!

Thank you for the support. For those who are not familiar with my project, please check out Project Heavy Traffic Links and my archives posts.

Do not underestimate the power of web links.

Interesting Traffic links:

Global Warming Bytes - Go green and save the earth

Master Networker's Web Blog - Networking marketing

The Wild Card

Many people think that it is the rising oil price that will break the camel's back for the world markets. But they missed out a critical element- the declining US dollars.

Some believes that it is the falling US dollars that drives the fuel for the speculation of the oil commodity.

Will somebody just stop the slide to prevent the oil price from going through the roof!

Interesting Traffic links:

beginearning: Check out this blog, If you are on to MAKE MONEY ONLINE FOR BEGINNERS.

That's all folks for today, cheers!

Project Heavy Traffic Links

Project Heavy Traffic Links

Project Heavy Traffic has decided to launch Project Heavy Traffic Links.

I am going round inviting other bloggers to exchange links with me. I am now PR3 and has a technorati rank 0f top 6000 and technorati authority of 631. I want to build up my incoming links and hopefully help others to build up theirs too. I will be introducing interesting sites from the exchanges in my post .

To prove that i am serious, i have moved up my link section - Bloggers' Network and Blogroll on the top right panel - for the month of july.

Please help me to spread the words and put this request in your post if possible.

If you are interested to exchange links with me, please leave your blog URL in the blog comment. No political, profanity and porn sites please. Thanks. Once i have enough links, I will be categorising the links to make it more orderly and visible.

I will very much appreciate it if you could add the links of my bloggers' network on your site as well. Let's help each other to build up links.

You can experiment it too and you will be surprised to see there are many kind bloggers out there!

Cheers to greater traffic!
