Where has all the good Blogs gone in PPS ?

I think i have read 1 or 2 post on this matter before, I think, and the sad part is nobody seems to agree with the writers, the writers are consider as dinosaurs and totally left out in the current blogging scene.

I have cannot agree with that.

If you have been writing blogs and posting and reading from Project Petaling Street, you would notice the vast difference from lets say, 2 years ago to now. Then I can honestly say, PPS had a lot of good posting, orginal articles that was writen from heart felt. Honest opinion and much less about personal life matters.

Nowadays, i feel 3/4 of the posting on PPS are about making money in blogs and the rest of the articles are senseless, distasteful and not worth to read at all. It's just headlines to get their blog traffic flowing. Nothing more.

You dont need to agree with me, as dinosaurs are already extinct.

where is the love~~~ deng deng deng~~ deng deng deng deng~~ deng deng deng~ where is the love the love the love~~

love is at here >
Most of us only care about money makin'
Selfishness got us followin' the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema
Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
Instead in spreading love we spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down
There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Gotta keep my faith alive til love is found

I'm bored too but I don't mind waiting for some gems to surface once in a while.

Yea, man, all these fucked up pay post and blogs trying to earn money,all fucking fake blogs.

Very few people blog for the sake of blogging anymore, all wants to make money.

No thanks for snuffnang and fagvertlets as well.

wong said...

Agree! Every blogger nowadays looking for way to make money, this had change the "weblog" meaning in all... :(

You sure it wasn't me posting about this twice? I know I wrote about this more than once for that matter. Then again, because of the current niche towards monetized blogs, I've been pretty disconnected from the PPS community.

That's why I stick with 9rules. It ain't Malaysian, but at least it's still about blogs. :)

ducky said...

I thought i would be bombarded with hate comment and see you in hell comment, sure glad that there are still some hope with you guys out there.

I think pps has no more jaga, Nicktay, just zeroes & ones.

emm, ok glare nice poem.

You know pablopabla, its the gems that inspire us to write something better, honestly I have been writing rubbish since this year, compare to what I wrote like a year ago.

I guess that is how this world is turning into, every damn thing has to be corrupted by dollar and cents, even blogging. You know how much a term (1 year 3 term) in Garden Int School cost ? RM12K ! That's RM36Kpa.

And with Wong, that makes 5!

Well there is a possibility that it could be you kamigoroshi.

angel said...

Wah! So many comments geh... How come u r not monetizing yr blog? Cos u always complain no money, no honey... or u strike loteri liao arr??

I hate PPPs.

Anyway, once in a while, a gem will come out. Like zewt ;)

ducky said...

Yes 7 comment is a new record for me this year. Some things are better if they are not associated with money, like medical for instance or even or children education.

Yes i do hate PPPs as well, they other day, i was reading screenshot on some things old and i really thought it was about his home, then wtf, is an advert on LG, i stopped reading then and there.

angel said...

Yeah yeah, I also feel so cheated at times when it comes to PPPs... very kanasai...

Aiks, where's Yodaddy? MIA? Convert liao? Haha.

Yodaddy said...

ducky i dont really read much blogs nowadays...dont care much for ppp either.

angel im still here lah!!! Or you prefer me to make my presence felt on your blog?

angel said...

Haa... there you are yodaddy ;) good to know u are still well & alive. I'm quite confident u still follow my blog wan... so tell me, am I getting boring? Because I think I'm starting to bore myself already. I do too much self-censorship.

Yodaddy said...

angel, what censorship? Censor the food pictures? Not to say it is kindda boring.....but your posts doesnt quite blow up skirts ya see...

I was debating whether to say this or not, but wat the hell.. your blog seems to be some food, travel and birthday kindda blog. It is quite good and no doubt a lot of efforts were put into it but it lacks stuffs that people(or maybe just me) can relate to.

And just because you say it bores yourself, may i suggest that you balance out your blog abit because your post are mostly so...."cheery" and "happy". Where is the other not so happy part?

To reinforce my suggestion, here is something to ponder...most people grew up reading about childrens fairy tales....then after they grow up they realise that happy endings does not happen all the time.

angel said...

Haa, thanks yodaddy. That's the thing. Because there's already too much of the not-so-happy/negative things in our life, I decided, I don't want to put any in the blog. That is what I meant by self-censorship. Who wouldn't want to write/read about the bitchy stuff we encounter in life everyday, right? But I make a conscious effort not to write about it. Yeah, gotta live with it then.

I was thinking abt why do I still bother to blog. I came to an answer just a few hours ago. It's to keep some friendship going. It's a way for people whom I know through blogs to keep track of what have I been doing. If I do not update the blog, sooner or later, I believe the friendship(s) will die, if you know what I mean? Of course, not everyone can relate to it (my blog), but is it my fault? Nah, I don't think so...

Anyway, thank you for voicing out your thoughts. For now, I'll just blog what I want to share. No religion nor politics stuff because they bore me to death. BTW, you deleted your blog liao?

Keep well, Yodaddy :) and ducky, you too ;)

ducky said...

wtf is this, you guys want to talk go chat on yahoo or messenger lah, apa-lah ini.

angel said...

Ei ducky... be proud lar that your comment area is some kind of a communication tool for all of us... dun lar liddat... sharing is caring muahaha :p

BTW, ask u, Ocean 13 mya torrent, sudah ada ka? I can't get the 'ching' DVD version lar...
