The War between Advertlets and Nuffnang...Conclusion

Like i said many a times, i blog whatever that comes out from my mouth or heart, or in this case whatever my fingers wants to tap away on the keyboard of my dying laptop.. I seldom stop and think after a sentence..the words are meant to flow out like a long fart that has accumulated in your body for very long..I mean..thats the whole purpose of blogging..thats just me.. I dont see what is the point of proof reading and reading and spell checking hundreds of time before you decided to click on the publish post button. I never hesitated to type what i want to type so thats why i always feel that i am a natural in food blogging..i blog how i feel about the food, how it looks like..how it makes me feel..alas..when it comes to more serious topics..it forces me to think which is against the original intention of me blogging..i have already been told i need to slow down and think before i speak in real life, so do i really need sommore nagging in the blogosphere?

So without further ado, i think i should answer some questions, even if its from two readers..Thus the conclusion of the Wars..

Back to the wars, i was asked why i should stand up on the fence? Well i guess there isnt any real winner just yet.. Nuffnang has gained popularity with the down to earth yet famous bloggers..but Advertlets has shown that being cocky and cool also cant be that bad.. And being me.. i am abit of both.. So who is the real winner then? If it has to go with instincts and what my gut feel is.. it has got to be *drums roll* Nuffnang.. why?

Simply because i joined them first..Their creator, Timothy left comments on my blog when i complained i didnt get an ad..haha the power of procrastination..and little did i realise that some of the floggers joined Nuffnang too!.. Well goes to shows..whatever it is, i am still a true flogger at heart and i stand by them..But doesnt mean Advertlets is no worse..but to me, Nuffnang displays a more genuine place to be in a blogging community..

Which leads on to the 2nd question.. so why the ads in the first place?

There are actually two answers to the question, one that maybe some would like to read, and one that comes deep from my heart.. What would people want to read? The promise to join the expanding Malaysian blogging community and become one? Or the extra awareness of the latest applicable products and services that can benefit my readers? Or maybe just to make my blog abit more colourful? Well, choose your pick but no..The real and simple answer is.. I wanted to make money..who doesnt? But of course sooner or later, you realise that the intention of blogging to not to purely make money.. So yes, i wanted to put those ads hoping that i get a sponsored meal or two..but i guess i might have to wait a while longer..

So with those answers..i hope i have concluded what was a heck of a confusion of ideas and a jumbled and non-concluding war..

No offence to Josh Lim from Advertlets and please Timothy from Nuffnang dont get too cocky also yea? (Psst: You can always reward me with this coming month lucky draw..i need a new camera..better pictures would do well in increasing my visitors) Muahahaha..

My sinus is acting up..and i am having a headache whenever i bend down.. When will i fully recover to get some food reviews up and running? Sigh..

well, with more and more bloggers joining nuffnang, they are going to be stretched. anyway, i think adertlets is more on click based adverts. playing on different field now i guess...

boo_licious said...

Can't really comment on which ads are better since I don't use them but I'm glad you made a decision as the first post was hanging in mid air.

Visitors take time to attract so you'll need to continue to blog interesting stuff esp if you wish to earn lots of dough for a free meal. What abt Payperpost? Heard that pays quite well too. May be something to consider if you wish to earn $$$.

zewt: end of the day you think about it..putting on ads will significantly benefit the bigger players..i m sure u earn more then Rm3.58 a week on paid ads from nuffnang rite? im sure nuffnang is doin somethin wif the click based ads..

boo: haha yes i finally concluded..i hope my stuff is interesting enough..fingers crossed..i heard alot of PPP but once u have those kinda reviews..defeats the whole point of blogging d..it shouldnt go to that extent of disturbing the way you blog

teckiee said...

words words too much words... but i actually stop working and read this and your previous. What caught my attention was Josh Lim actually hahaha. But anyway, I believe more in good HCI (human computer interaction) so I stay away from ads. They just kill good HCI.

Xiu Long Bao said...

actually did nuffnang pay u for placing ads on ur blog? So far, they placed 2 rounds oledi but i hav not received any payment :(

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

teckiee: i know..but wat kinda of pics to put? i no more food pics d haha.. you got a good point..thats y i m limiting it to just the two up there..make things abit colourful

xlb: you can check in your nuffnang account..somewhere under earnings..you only can cash out once u reach RM100..

btw ppl..i earn 30 cents a click on the advertlets ads..haha help me yea?

AngryYoungChild said...

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

angryyoungchild: haha well i guess so..advertlets im currently on RM2.60? i cant seem to see a flat rate that they give but some experimenting and i see that they give me 30 cents for every time the ad is being clicked.

Boss Stewie said...

Thank you for the vote of confidence Joe.

We've actually started CPC campaigns already.. and they pay at least RM0.50 per click.

Freethinker said...

Just to throw my 2 cents...

There's nothing wrong being a loyalist or merely on the fence, at the end of the day, one has to evaluate the merit of each scenario.

However, just because staying on both sites shouldn't be a "gag" not to express any wrong doings or how things can be better...

After all, it's a 2 flow situation. Bloggers wants them, they need bloggers... we should have a mutual understanding...

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

freethinker: i totally agree with you..end of the day for some, the original intention is just to earn some cash, and whether its Nangnuff, people wouldnt care..but then again, like you said, if there are areas of improvement, then i think its best we tell them direct then bitch about at our blogs..

Freethinker said...

Joe : Hope you didn't mean the "bitching" part me for me..hahahahhaa....

However I have a thing on people who likes to "misdirect" others on half truths... hahaha

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

freethinker: no no..i dont mean it this way at all..i hope the entry didnt misdirect you by any means
