A Ticket of Appreciation

It has almost been 1 year since i started this blog. Hehe, seems like is a custom to write an entry about their blog’s anniversary whether is 1 month, 2 months, 3 months or 1 year, to talk about their most commented entry, most popular entry etc. I ain’t gonna post about these here as this will be more like an acknowledgement.

I started boonage’s blog a year ago mainly aiming for massive visitors regardless of where they are from and who they are, so to do so i wrote quite a number of tutorials and get visitors from some of the top photoshop tutorial websites, also digg some of the entries hoping for some clicks from there as well. These goes on for quite sometime and the number of visitor i got was quite convincing, there was even a time where my analytic showed an extreme sudden hike, that was when one of my tutorial got stumbled, really cheered me up a lot during that time.

Talk about musics, this blog faced a serious issue during July 2007, which is my blog exceeded the monthly bandwidth. This was due to one of my shared song got linked by baidu.com and caused a massive number of downloads from there. I had to pay for some additional bandwidth for that month and took down all of my songs. Really wasn’t a good experience as i had to minimize all my bandwidth usage at that time.

Around August onwards i started to feels that even writing tutorial was able to gain promosing number of visitors, but the number of loyal visitors weren’t very good, during that time my constant reader were merely Pinksterz, Rabbit, Babyfiona, Lunatic, Crystal, Seraphangel, Aeres, Nesh, Flisterz, Mohdismail, JiaHui etc (hope i did not left out anybody). So, i’d turned to write more on my personal and interesting thing rather than focus on tutorials in order to get more of loyal as well as local visitors, also attended some bloggers gathering..yes, changed my moto of the blog, meeting new friends! That’s how i know Princess Eileen, Evie, KimFei, Abby, Yatz, TingTitLei, Jahdou, Huei, Maegen, Mich, Jo, girlny, HungWei and many more!

Of course there are also readers whom i never met before but had been so kind supporting my blog, 宝茹, Benard, MerDurian, Edward, iCalyvn, Nux, JC, KeeYit, Pookyma, Leo, chingy and again many more! (really hope i did not miss out any)

Also not to forgot those whom are non-blogger that visited my blog often, Jason, Keong, Skylakh, KahYin (Crystal) and…did i miss out any?

Once again thank you for the support, without you all my blog won’t be as it is now and hope that u all will continue visiting here!I really very indeed appreciate it!
