::Be Strong!::Dedicated To All My Friend::


30 SECONDS TO MARS - Kings and Queens

Into the night
Desperate and broken
The sound of a fight
Father has spoken


We were the kings and queens of promise
We were the phantoms of ourselves
Maybe the children of a lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell
Heaven and Hell

Into your eyes
Hopeless and taken
We stole our new lives
Through blindness
In defense of our dreams
In defense of our dreams

We were the Kings and Queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the Children of a lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell
Heaven and Hell

The age of man is over
A darkness comes at dawn
These lessons that we've learned here
Have only just begun

We were the Kings and Queens of promise
We were the phantoms of ourselves
Maybe the Children of a Lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell

We are the Kings
We are the Queens
We are the Kings
We are the Queens

::Give Up?::Hold On::

Quit, don't quit? Noodles, don't noodles? You are too concerned about what was and what will be. There is a saying: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the "present." 

Do you ever think about giving up writing?
You’ve been working on a blogging, but you’re afraid it’s never going to be good enough. Your short stories never win readers heart. Even your blog only has a handful of readers. It’s easy to feel disheartened – especially if you don’t have much support from friends or family. Perhaps your partner just doesn't get writing, or your friends tease you about it.
Luke: I don't believe it.  Yoda: That is why you fail.
Don’t give up.
Your writing does matter. Even if you’ve never shown a piece of your work to anyone, even if you know that publication is a distant dream, it’s still worth writing.

Here’s why.
#1: It’s Not Just a Hobby
Non-writers often think that writing is some casual hobby – and not a very productive one at that. After all, you might sweat for days on a story, and it still might not get published. If you took up knitting instead, you’d at least have a lumpy scarf or a pair of socks to show for your effort. Writing isn’t just a hobby, though. It’s a calling. Writers don’t pick up the pen (or turn to the keyboard) because they’re bored – they do it because they feel compelled to put their thoughts down on the page. Your writing is part of who you are, and it’s not something to take lightly.

#2: Your Writing Can Outlive You
We’re all going to die one day. Of course, memories live on – but eventually, there’ll be no-one alive who ever knew you. Your writing may well outlive you. Perhaps you've not got an audience for your memoir right now … but it could be an incredible treasure for your great-great-grandchildren. Just think of Chaucer, Shakespeare and Dickens. Your name could be one that every school child knows in three hundred years’ time. Want to write your life story and get it published? Start with Are You Writing a Memoir?

#3: You Can Change Lives
Most of us have a pretty small circle of influence: family, friends, colleagues, our local community. Writing, though, lets us reach across the world. If you have a blog – even a blog with ten readers – you’re touching other people’s lives. It always makes my day when I get an email or comment telling me how much one of my blog posts meant to someone. Often, I’ll hear “this came at just the right time for me”. Your writing could change someone’s life, by opening up new possibilities for them, by teaching them something new, or simply by giving them an experience that they wouldn’t otherwise have had.

#4: Self-Expression is Important
If I don’t exercise, I get cranky – and if I don’t write, I get cranky too. I do some of my best thinking with a pen in my hand, or with a keyboard under my fingers – and I’d bet that you do too. Being able to get things off your chest and onto the page can be extremely therapeutic – more so than simply talking about problems. The contents of your journal might be ephemeral but the act of writing it might be crucial for your well-being.
Fiction or poetry can also be a crucial outlet, letting you explore emotions and ideas, and bring structure to them.

#5: You’re Improving with Every Word You Write
Perhaps you’re tempted to give up writing because you’re not good enough. Perhaps you’ve had nasty comments on your blog, or you’ve sent off your short stories again and again, meeting with rejection each time. Maybe you’re worried about how to find a literary agent. Even if you’re not quite there yet, you’re learning and improving all the time. Every single word you write helps you to hone your craft and take your skills further – especially if you’re actively seeking to learn new techniques. If you give up now, you’ll never know what you might have been capable of.

Where Next for Your Writing?
I know life is busy, and that it’s hard to find the time and energy to write. But I’d encourage you to set aside just an hour this week to focus on your writing. If you’ve been reading a lot about writing without actually doing much, then now’s the time to change that. If you want others to take you seriously, it’s vital that you take your writing seriously. That might mean joining a group, enrolling on a course, or simply committing more time to your writing.

What will you do, this week, to make your writing a more important part of your life?

FootNote ~ Always pass on what you have learned. Many of the truths that we cling to depend on our point of view.

Bila Jasa Jadi Kenangan::


Yeahh sabtu yang membosankan datang menjenguk kembali. Aktiviti hari ni? Sepatutnya aku kena tido sebab dari semalam berjaga. Tapi tetap tak dapat nak lelapkan mata aku.Terpandang akan CPU aku ni, memang mata terbeliak ibarat tersampuk shaiton. Aku dedicate kan entry ni untuk CPU aku yekk.

Bangun pagi. Kuar beli roti canai dan nescafe ais serta tak lupa jugak Harian Metro. Nak update isu terkini. Kalau aku tak beli Metro pon tetap leh update sebab banyak blog duk update info dari surat khabar walaupun bukan full coverage macam surat khabar. Gambar PC aku ke tu? yeahh tu la gambaran sebenar pc yang aku guna sekarang. Dah berusia 7 tahun. Memang banyak berjasa pon benda ni.

Ok. Asalnya kan waktu aku study kat kolej swasta (masuk sejarah pasal aku lak) aku guna pc ni turun temurun dari adik aku. Masa tu dia belajar kat UTM tapi aku ni belajar kat Perlis. Memang akut ak guna PC pon time tu. Lepas abis belajar, aku kerja. Bila adik aku beli laptop, pc ni dah tak guna. Kebetulan aku sambung lak belajar amik Diploma. Turun la pc tu kat aku. Dari secantik-cantik pc sampai la sekarang dah bertukar monitor 2 kali, hard disk 8 ketol dan RAM tak penah upgrade ke 512mb pon. Dari dulu sampai sekarang 128mb+245mb je RAM. Seminggu lebih pon aku tak pernah tutup pc ni waktu nak siapkan 3D animation. Macam tu gak aku buat dulu letak kipas meja kat tepi semata-mata nak bagi sejuk.

Dari aku tak tahu benda pasal pc, sampai la aku tahu, itulah sumber tempat aku belajar macam mana nak reapir pc, macam nak buat itu ini. Medium untuk aku jalankan eksperimen aku sendiri. Sebelum ni aku penah jugak ada laptop. Tapi aku pakai tak sampai pon setahun dan aku terpaksa melepaskan laptop aku tu. (jual! Sila rujuk wishlist sebelah kiri)

Apa yang aku nak bagitahu kat sini, buruk macam mana pon benda tu, kalau kita tahu jaga, maintenance elok-elok mesti boleh guna. Sekarang orang dah tak pandang la P4 ke ape kan, paling lekeh pon kena ada Core 2 Duo la. Paling hebat nak kena ada Intel Pentium i7 gitu. Support HD dan segala bagai. Sape tak teringin? aku teringan cuma tak berkesempatan je. Rezeki takde lagi hahahaha

Cukup dengan ape yang aku nak membebel di pagi hari. Rehat secukupnya ye sambil menonton siaran kartun di tv.

FootNote ~ aku sentiasa hargai apa saja yang ada kat keliling aku walaupun seketul batu yang tertulis nama aku.

::The Content Strategy::Bieber and Blog::

Justin Bieber is currently one of the biggest pop stars in the world, but the question is, how did he get so big, so quickly? I'm not a Die-Hard-Fan of JB (James Bond? Jason Bourne? or Justin Bieber?) Read it, understand and my suggestion, try to apply it in the term of blogging. Make the different.

Fellow musician and singer Usher had a big part in making this happen by signing Bieber to his label, but other influences played just as big a part in helping him explode onto the scene.Sometimes, good things come from the other side of view. Adapt the implement to the blogging. That is my point of view.

One of those influences is Disney; Radio Disney to be exact.
I’d like to reveal to you the impressive content strategy that Disney used to help make Justin Bieber famous and dominate the pre-teen music niche.

As you review the steps that Disney implemented, you will see that you can duplicate the principles to propel your own content channels and content marketing efforts to new levels.

A need for kid-friendly music content( A need for user-friendly content)
You might not realize this but before 1996 there were no music stations aimed at younger kids. This created a huge problem for parents who wanted to find something appropriate to listen to when driving with their kids. What is our aim in blogging? My aim just wanna share anything i know or did you have a same life just like me?

The only real choices parents had were:
Listening to the music radio stations, they normally listened to and hoping their kids didn't pick up on any inappropriate content or lyrics.
Listening to the same kids’ CDs over and over. (Warning: Barney can make you go insane if you overdose on his music.)
There wasn’t really a middle option. But in 1996, Disney did something ingenious: They created a channel to distribute a type of content (music) designed to appeal to both kids and families. The channel they created was an AM station called, “Radio Disney.”  At first, the channel just played old, “clean” songs from groups like NSYNC, The Backstreet Boys, The Spice Girls. But a few years later, Disney began launching its own roster of music artists.

As a result, its content channel became so popular and powerful that the company gained four marketing advantages:

Disney could promote its other content channels and experience providers for little to no cost (i.e., The Disney Channel, Disney’s movies, and its theme parks).
The company was able to create its own stars in this niche and propel artists from other labels into stardom. The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, the High School Musical stars, and even Justin Bieber all owe much of their fame and status to Radio Disney.
This content became so popular and desired that other channels began programming their stations with Radio Disney’s music (for example, I heard a Miley Cyrus song as background track on an American Idol audition episode).

Other businesses are now paying Disney to promote/ advertise their own products or services to the massive audience that Radio Disney has gathered.
Now, obviously, not everyone can leverage its content in the same way as Disney has. But you can do something similar in a small niche or sub-niche. You just need to use the right strategy to build a content channel that works for you and your audience or readers.
