My Very First Blog

Posted by : foongpc | Wednesday, April 8, 2009 | Published in


This is my very first blog. I have never blogged in my life before this. In fact, I was clueless about blogs then.

It all started last year when I learnt that a lot of politicians write blogs. I started reading some of the blogs. Besides blogs by politicians, I also read other types of blogs, mainly foodie blogs and personal blogs. Before long, I was hooked. I thought, why not start one myself?

I wanted to blog about anything that interest me. Nothing specific really. I just wanted to share my thoughts with anyone who is interested. And that's how My Very First Blog was born.

Even though the topics in my blog can range from feng shui to psychology to self help to grooming and to finance, I really have the most passion in things that have to do with music, books, health and the unexplained.

I was tagged by Jam to do this Monster List. All these tags are getting on my nerves. Maybe I should start a tag myself one day and tag every blogger I know!

So are you among those I tagged? Scroll down to check! Hehe.

*Start Copy Here*
Feel like your blog should be up there along with the celebrity’s bloggers? Think that your blog deserves more traffic? Then you are coming to the right place!


1. Create a post to introduce your blog. The title of the post should be the title of your blog.

2. Copy the MONSTER LIST and paste at the end of your post. Add your blog to the end of the MONSTER LIST. Do come back for the latest list as it grows so that everyone who participates gets maximum benefit.

3. Once completed, leave a 50-word abstract of your post here.

Monster List
1. Beautiful Places On Earth
2. Everything about Best Franchise Opportunities
3. Life Is Like That
4. Golf Malaysia
5. Relationship Advice
6. AntzWorLd
7. Che-Cheh
8. All About United
9. GoJenYourself
10. in Rainbows
11. MoMenT Of WonDers
12. LifeIsALoop
13. ContestHunter
14. My Very First Blog

You may tag along if you like. Do come back to update the list as often as possible.
*End Copy Here*

I would like to tag the following 25 bloggers.....OK, I mean 13 bloggers! Haha! : )

Mei Teng
Life Ramblings
Borneo Falcon
Faisal Admar

For the first 12 lucky bloggers above whom I have canceled your names, send me a thank you gift each for not tagging you! LOL! *kidding* But if you feel I should not have canceled your name and you are interested to join this tag, please do!

And for those of you who are not listed here but would like to join this tag, you are most welcome to do so!

Oh, anyone of you who like to be tagged by me in future, please let me know by leaving a comment here and I will make sure you are in my 'To Be Tagged' List : )

    Foong, I don't give you tags because I know you hate them! ha ha The good thing about tags is you're not obligated to play. I'll pass on this one but count me in for the next one (as long as it's fun and does not involve a lot of links LOL).Btw, I haven't forgotten about your souvenir. I just have to mail it. I'm sure you'll get it before I leave for my vacation in the Philippines in a couple of months. :o)

    Don't have to thank me for not tagging you - there's always a next time unless you send me a thank you gift. Haha! : )

    lina, I think I've not tagged you before, have I? So in line with the motto of my blog, there's always a first time for everything! Hehe : )

  9. foongpc said...

    babette, it's OK. Tags are not obligatory but encouraged. OK, next time will send you tag that is more fun and does not involve too many links! And thanks so much for not sending me tags.Really appreciate it! : )

    When are you leaving for your vacation? You have not emailed me your address cos I'm sending you a souvenir too! : )

    Kinda reminded me my purpose to start blogging wuz for political reasons. Guess i juz became fed up with the weird political climate of this country and certainly the weird greedy politicians.

    I kinda wonder too of some of your followers' fondness in spamming your comments section. hehe You must be real popular to invoke such passion in them! ^_^

  22. foongpc said...

    horizon, I agree! : )

    life ramblings, you are welcome. Why are you not playing tags anymore? It can be quite fun sometimes, but only sometimes. Most of the time, it's a pain in the neck! LOL!

    suituapui, will check it out! : )

    April 8, 2009 at 10:42 PM
  23. foongpc said...

    iamthewitch, wow! You sound so enthusiastic! That's a breath of fresh air! Cos most people I tagged don't sound like they want to do the tags. Haha! I'll look forward to yours! : )

    merryn, haha! because Mei Teng likes to stalk my blog. Is that true, Mei Teng? LOL!

    Merryn, you can stalk my blog too. Then I think I can start a list of 'Stalkers' in addition to the 'Followers'. Haha!

    happysurfer, really? But you have a few blogs. I only have one! : (

  24. foongpc said...

    lisalicious, relieved yes? Now where's my thank you gift? LOL!

    borneo falcon, thanks! Will wait for your post! : )

    bengbeng, what do you mean the biggie bloggers? As far I know, YOU are the biggie blogger! I don't think you have problem finding 100 bloggers to tag! : )

    April 8, 2009 at 10:53 PM
  25. foongpc said...

    anton, oh you started out as a political blogger? yeah, I'm tired about politics in this country!

    As for my followers spamming my comments section, I really did not invoke them to do that! Well, actually I don't really think that's spamming at all. And I sometimes do the same at other blogs. You want me to "spam" your blog? Cos I'll be glad to! Hehe : )

    mei teng, I'm just kidding! I know you don't stalk my blog lah. Yes, I notice you are an early bird, that's why I somehow knew you would be the first person to leave comments here since I published this post at 7.22am! : )

    Foong, it's my very first one that got me started. The same for you. Only difference is, yours is the ONLY one. Make sense or not?

  32. foongpc said...

    monica, well next time I have a fun and easy tag, I will tag you! : )

    happysurfer, I've been thinking of starting a second blog that focus on making some money for me. But no time yet! : (

  33. Ayie said...

    Foong, sorry for my ignorance but how does tagging really works? I mean I always hear it but never really cared to fully understand things. I know it's quite a slack but that's how I am sometimes when it requires some work input. Hehehe

    You might wonder how come I have a number of blogs and still I'm so lazy and don't know much about blogging. I do blog to relieve stress and share my interest and check others. I had so much work going on back then so it's only now I can really appreciate blogging. So how does it go again? hahahaha

  34. HalfCrazy said...

    I like the fact that your blogs covers a lot of topics. A lot of people out there have at least a certain topic. That's too restricted for me, I am interested in too many things.

    So do I have to paste my link below the Monster list and tag some people too? Is that how it works? LOL

  47. foongpc said...

    ayie, I used to ignore tags last time and not even bother to try to understand them! But after I was tagged a few times, I decided to learn what tags are all about!

    All you do for this tag is just copy from "Start Copy Here" until "End Copy Here" and paste onto your blog.

    Write about your blog like what I did and then at the end, tag a few bloggers you know. Or you may choose not to tag anyone. It's up to you.

    Do inform those you have tagged so they know you tagged them. Unless they visit your blog regularly, it's better to inform them.

    Don't forget to add your blog's URL to the Monster List, like what I did.

    Also. make sure you go to the originator of this tag (under instruction no.3) so he/she can update the Monster List. As more and more people join this tag, the Monster List will grow and grow.

    The benefit of this is that the originator will have many blogs linking to his/her site. And by participating, we will also end up with our links in many other blogs. Whether this is truly beneficial to us I'm still learning. It helps to increase your traffic and probably page rank, though I'm not too sure about this.

    Hope this helps : )

  54. Ayie said...

    Thanks for the nice explanation...too much work for me though! haha i'm a lazy blogger to be honest and only now I'm trying to explore.

    It sure does help increase your blog exposure since it's being out to many other poeple's blogs.

    foong speaks her mind, OK, won't tag you then! : )

    kenwooi, that's all right. But I still hope you will do the tag : )

    ayie, yes it does help with exposing your blog or blogs. So give tags a try! : )

    mariuca, really? I've already canceled your name! But of course, if you are in the mood to do the tag, pls go ahead! : )

    I started with many tags because it gives me links. It has its advantage. :)
