Happy birthday to myself

Saturday, September 15, 2012

Just a quick post to wish myself...




I always wonder which korean celebrity shares the same birth date as me? There are about hundreds of korean celebrities out there so there must be someone but..... it seems like there's none at all

Then yesterday, I found out that Song Joong Ki's birthday is on the 19th September, just 3 days away from my birthday. Not exact but near. OK! I'll accept that.

So, happy birthday in advance, Joong Ki oppa!!

Ah.....what a cute pose!


Dramas to watch after exams!

Monday, September 10, 2012

I'm supposed to work hard and study for exams BUT I can't help thinking what I should do after the dreadful final exams. To be specific, I'm thinking of what drama to watch. Heheh...

Korean drama 49days is definitely first in my to-watch list as I've already downloaded 7 episodes and I heard it's a recommended drama to watch. Followed by 49days would be the chinese drama Scarlet Heart(步步惊心), highly recommended by my friends. Hmm.....not sure if these dramas are my cup of tea but I'll still give them a try. Well, what's next? Perhaps Bridal Mask? This recent KBS drama has been receiving many high praises, not for the plot but the actors and actresses. My sister loves it so much and said it is the best drama. Hmm.....might give it a shot.

Bridal Mask finally concludes it last episode on KBS and a whole new drama Nice Guy will start soon. I just found out that Song Joong Ki and Moon Chae Won are the main casts for this new drama Nice Guy. I've only seen Song Joong Ki's act in Sungkyunkwan Scandal but I heard he's pretty good, probably because of Deep Rooted Tree. Well, I haven't watch Deep Rooted Tree yet but I heard it's another good drama too. Hmm....another drama to add to my to-watch list. As for Moon Chae Won, I love her after watching The Princess' Man.

I was deciding to root for this drama until I read the plot...

A man is betrayed by the woman he loves. To exact revenge, the man uses another woman who lost her memory ....

Oh my! This plot sounds kinda lame. Not another A Love To Kill? Sorry to A Love To Kill fans, but that drama totally bores me. I didn't even watch past 3 episodes. Definitely not my cup of tea.

Anyway, this drama hasn't even aired so it's really too early for me to judge. I'm only hoping this drama will not be a major disappointment. That's all. Perhaps, this drama might take me by surprise like what The Princess' Man did? I thought TPM was a lame drama when I read it's simple plot. I said "Ah....Romeo and Juliet!" but the whole drama really took me by surprise to no end. Anyway, I'll still keep any eye on this new drama just for Moon Chae Won. 

There's a new drama that I'm even more anticipate about. it's Cheongdam Dong Alice, casting main leads Park Shi Hoo and Moon Chae Won. Wow! My favorites! Totally fell for Park Shi Hoo after watching TPM and am definitely rooting for him no matter what the drama plot is. Oh....I miss that pair of sexy eyes and killer smile. With Park Shi Hoo and Moon Geun Young as leads, I believe a drama can't be any worse, can it? I have faith in both of them!

What happened to my blog traffic?

Saturday, September 8, 2012

I have been very, very busy for the past few weeks. Still am btw because final exams are coming closer and closer to me in about 10 more days. Finally rushed and completed all my assignments. Phew!! Now, it's time to concentrate on my studies no matter how I hate studying. Gotta force myself ar!! Jiayou~ Gambateh~ Fighting~

(*sigh* It's really hard to concentrate on my studies when I'm still in a holiday mood.)

Jiayou~ Jiayou~ Jiayou~

Then why am I here?

Because I'm forced to save my blog from a devastating crash!

I have been away from my blog for quite some time already since I'm really busy with my school life these few days. The last time I blogged was on the 18th August so I have abandoned my blog for 20 days. I didn't care to check out my blog until yesterday. I was like "OMG! What happened to my blog stats?"

An average of 30 unique visitors was what I thought as a normal rate for my blog and I thought it wouldn't decline any further, right? But my blog stats proved I was wrong. It continues to parachute further down to 20. That is quite a devastating news for me as there was a time when my blog hit a peak at 83 unique visitors and enjoyed an average of 50 for a certain period of time.

I know blog statistics doesn't increase steadily(especially for lazy bloggers like me). There's always ups and downs, just like our life.  It's pretty impossible to live a happy life forever, yet we can't stand living a bad, devastated life either.

It's hard to maintain the optimum blog traffic especially when you're occupied with stuffs other than blogging. Ironically, those busy moments were also the times when I had the most ideas for blogging. When I'm free, my mind goes blank. Oh why brain, why?

I definitely don't want to watch my blog statistics head to the ground so I'm forced to sacrifice some of my precious study time to blog.

Obviously, this event has lead me into doing more research on how to maintain a blog traffic so here are some good tips I found from the internet.

How to maintain blog traffic:

Blog consistently
2 to 3 posts per week should be enough to maintain your blog traffic and keep your followers updated. Failing to do so might risk you a potential follower as readers are more likely to lose interest on your blog rather quickly. If you are looking for ways to optimize traffic, try writing an entry per day.

Prepare backup post entries
There will be days when you are so busy or don't feel like blogging at all. There will also be days when you have so many ideas to blog about that you don't know where to start from. That is the time when you should pen down these ideas and start writing some backup entries so that your blog will not face any post crisis when you don't have the time to blog.

Make use of social medias
Both Twitter and Facebook are the best ways to spread your articles and increase blog traffic even during hectic times. Sharing service such as Twitterfeed is a quick and easy way to share your posts without much hassle.

Okay, basically these are the 3 main ideas that I think are important for anyone who wished to achieve a desirable blog stats. They are also a great way to boost your blog traffic if used strategically.

p.s: Vietnam trip posts coming soon after my final~ Please look forward to it!!!
