You can’t bring me DOWN!

I have been having sleepless nights since I participated in this Senheng YouTube contest mid of last month. It was my first time joining such contest where we needed to campaign for the highest view to win a Samsung Galaxy S3.  I campaigned real hard and what touched me the most was the willingness of my family members, friends and readers to help share my campaign and work together with me to pull in the views for my video.

My FB friends shared the video link on their FB wall. I was truly touched by their gestures. Here are some of the snippets, I did not manage to get the screen shot of all the shares to put in here but will try to update that tonight when I have more time.

Arthur whom I have not met in person shared my link not ONCE but TWICE to his 705 friends on FB.

I was surprised that Chen Fai shared my video too. I’ve only met him once yet here he is, a kind-hearted soul helping me out in my campaign.

Teddy bear Kian Fai helped me out too by sharing this on his fanpage.

Rachel of Nuffnang helped me out too. I also try getting help from the nice people of Nuffnang to view my video from their PC. You know how many PCs there are in the Nuffnang office, right?

I shared the video link in Facebook Groups for bloggers too which helps in generating quite a number of views.

I shared the video link at the end of my blog posts so that my readers can help me too which they generously DID! I’m so thankful for that!

I even shared the link in my Craft blog which has around 1K unique visitors each day and that helps me gain view counts as well.

My YouTube video view stats. See how they all came from genuine sources? I’ve campaigned hard to achieve that.

I was leading. Totally leading until this video of this guy uploaded and he shot to 19K views out of no where. He has since been disqualified on the count of fraud click. Since then, I’ve seen my video being sabotaged.

I am accused of buying views for my campaign:

I wanted to challenge him in providing my email add as I am confident he won’t be able to provide that!

I clicked on his account to see that he had only created the YouTube account merely a day before dropping that comment in my video! Such a fraud!

I have done NO wrong so I reported the matter to the contest organizer. I am NOT AFRAID of being sabotaged as I KNOW I AM NOT WRONG!

That idiot then resorted to buying DISLIKE votes for my video. In a way I am flattered that people are actually SPENDING MONEY TO BRING ME DOWN!!

That only proves that I am too strong and they FEAR me. They DON’T WANT me to WIN hence resorting to these dirty play!

Thankfully not everyone is blind. Someone defended me by dropping the above comments and I’ve seen many of my friends dropping comments to back me up too. I appreciate it a lot! Love you all very much!

The view count will come to an end on the 15th October 2012 for my batch. I wonder what else will that guy do within this 5 days to bring me down. He is adamant to disqualify me. He’ll stop at nothing!

But I will not give-up! I know now that I have such strong support from you guys and I am truly touched. No words can describe how I feel right now. I just want to say THANK YOU for all that you guys have done for me and this campaign.

Before I sign-off, here’s that controversial video once again. Watch it to see how dirty some people can be :(

I’m a full-time blogger who relies on my reputation and readers to earn a living. I won’t risk my reputation and NAME merely for a phone. Please do not tarnish my image by your dirty tricks. Please go spend your money on something more meaningful.

    My respect to you! Jia you babe!

  • //

    Merryn, this contest has made you a stronger lady!! Jia U!

    That’s why I’ve given up completely on online contests. Joined twice – MAS & SHARP…and both times, got so frustrated at things going on. Shortened my life only…but it certainly was nothing as bad as in your case, not even near. Who is that? So terrible… I guess when one is (rich and) famous and popular, you get a lot of people who are jealous of you.

  • //

    Wow. You have my support!
