Sunday Killer Link Love Post #11

Each weekend I’ll write a post that called Sunday Killer Link Love Post, I used to share about articles from the blogosphere that I find interesting, useful and benefit to my readers. Articles cover topic about blogging tips, traffic building, search engine optimization, affiliate marketing and tips that teach you how to blog.


Recently, my brother and one of my blog buddy told me that my blog loaded pretty slow, I’ve been using Blogengage button for quite some times and recently the site is down, so the button couldn’t be able to function and that causes my blog loads pretty slow, but I’ve fixed it. I did start a poll earlier and asked for blog loading speed after moving to Hostgator, and I would like to take back the poll and place it here, I hope you would help me to test and cast a vote, of course drop a comment and tell me your result would be much appreciated.

It has been several days now since I’m out of internet service at home. The area seems to go static with no connection whatsoever while some areas in town are not affected.

Personal Ramblings

I was really busy this week as I prepared for the test of one of my subjects, I’ve just done it today and it went smooth, hardwork paid off. I just completed one test for one of my subjects, two more tests to go in coming weeks, together with few assignments and presentation, that’s going to kill me. Anyway, Chinese New Year is around the corner, I’m going to forget everything and relax during the holiday!

I’ll take some times to update this blog during holiday, or I might totally leave it for 2 weeks. These days I received quite some guest post from fellow bloggers, thank you guys for helping to update this blog, of course you would get some traffic and dofollow backlink as well.

      Yea, totally agree with you. You know I have a weird attitude, when I’m extremely busy and no time for blogging, I got idea to write a blog post and I hope I got time for my blog; when I’m free and got time for my blog, I feel tired and my mind is blank. That’s pretty weird. Anyway, I just write whenever I like and write anything that I want. That’s blogging! :)
