Nuffnang Blogopolis 2012 : Blogging 101

The day is finally here. 11 hours of Nuffnang Blogopolis Malaysia 2012. Let’s recap through quotes from the speakers.

The topic discussed are:

Idea Sourcing & Content Generation

On the question “How do you write a headline that works”

Chee Wah (editor of TimeOutKL answers “It has to be something for the reader, address a need and make a promise”

Ken Wooi, Chee Wah and KY

Opportunities Gained Through Blogging

On writing sponsored posts, “If you are not selective, you will end up shooting yourself in the foot” said seasoned blogger Kenny Sia.

Blog Design 101

“What do you want to portray yourself as a blogger? It can be portrayed in your blog design” said Lionel from Ripplewerkz

 “Auto play music, one of the examples of Blog Design Fails” says Eric Cruz of Leo Burnett. 

Building Your Brand and Finding Your Voice in Blogosphere

 “Brand blog tu kena “catchy” said Beautifulnara 

@revelinme said “Blogging is like an online resume, you will never know who is reading and he/she might be your future opportunity” 

Since it can be our online resume, we better do it right, right? Just like applying jobs out there, we need to stand out to get noticed so “To get yourself identified, you gotta be original and be yourself” – @mariaelenazarul

Your brand helps your readers identify you hence “It is important to have an easy URL, easy to be remembered and googled” – @xiaxue

“Keep it fresh/up-to-date with trends or current topics” said XiaXue

“People get bored easily, so you gotta update your blog frequently” – @vivyyusof


Cutie pie Firdaus is my Hero today. He is super cute in his presentation and we are all kept entertained!

You also want your readers to be comfortable reading your blog so the font plays a crucial role.

“Legibility and readability” “Do not use Comic Sans, or I will not be your friend” @fiurdy on Fonts

The super cute @fiurdy also said, “I’m a designer, I’m allowed to be awkward” He’s so hilarious I love his talk!

“It is important to establish the position of your blog and the image that you want to project” – @revelinme

“Follow your niche and opportunities will come” – @sixthseal

XiaXue also has these to say:

“Never afraid of sharing your opinions” 

“Never beg people to follow you on your Twitter, and like your Facebook. Ever!” 

“If u dont hv haters, u failed to spark interest”

“Haters – are only confused admirers” said @mariaelenazarul 

“Listen to people’s feedback/criticism and listen to them” – @vivyyusof

 Blog Photography

On photography, Carlos Nizam and Sue Anna Joe shared their input:

“Photography is not all about theories, you have to go all out and experience it yourself” – @carlosnizam

“Plan photo storyline beforehand” – @carlosnizam

“Don’t immediately delete what you think is a bad shot” – @sueannajoe

“Moment means when you are able to capture a genuine moment” – @sueannajoe

Using Different Platforms To Optimize Your Blog Traffic

Have more social media platforms because “Your readership doubles when you have more platforms” said @mariaelenazarul

Bro Ernest said “drawing is the essence of all creation” – @ernestngBRO

At the end of the day, da Boss Timothy Tiah himself has this to say:

“Share good quality content because at the end of the day bloggers are content creators” 

Premesh of Malaysiakini, Timothy Tiah (Nuffnang) and Kenny Sia

Content is KING so continue doing what we do while improving ourselves with the above input. It has been an insightful day. Thank you Nuffnang Malaysia for organizing this.
