Advertising

I have been getting a lot of enquiries on advertising. If you are one of them, I am sorry that I did not reply the mail. In 2011, I will revamp the advertising part. I will remove the clutter and add more advertising space. There will still be advertorial post. And I will increase the area to advertise (right now, only 4). I will add in bigger advertorial space (e.g. 160 X 600) on the side.

I promise to reply those mails on advertising 🙂

Giveaway

I guess Giveaway is something new in TechieLobang towards the end of 2010. So, I will continue to work with vendors with good giveaways or mini contest. If you are really interested to get informed, I encourage that you add in your name and email in the subscription list.

Again, thanks for the support, it is growing steadily.

Search

As there are more and more post (2,530 posts), the standard search in blog is inadequate now. I find that since Google index the blog fast, it is a better option to use Google search to find stuffs on the blog. So on the top right, the usual search has been replaced with custom search from Google (yes, it is Google Adsense, and I will get a few cents if you click on the search results.)

Events

Thanks to brands and companies, I have been invited to many events in 2010. I will continue to attend. Free feel to drop me a mail. I will try my best to attend if schedule permits.

Last year, I tried to list out the events that I attended. I think it is too tedious. So, I will not list them out. In future, event will be categorized (actually already did). So, you can check them out using:

Tip

I really appreciate readers or subscription or even companies to give me information on their product. One of the memorable one is Beeconomic. It was a new startup and they requested me to attend their event. Unfortunately, I cannot make it but I still post up their Press Release. Today, they have become a company of Groupon (by Google) and I am really glad on their success!

So, don’t hesitate to send me information on your products, companies (especially local companies). Provide me more information on them. But, do introduce a bit more about yourselves. It is better to know you more first, right?

Today, you can send tip to Techielobang using this email address.

I am a big fan of social media. With Twitter, Foursquare, Facebook and others picking up in Singapore, I have tried my best to make TechieLobang more socialable.

Now, you can tweet about a post using the retweet button on the right hand side of a post. You can Buzz (from Google) about it too.

At the bottom of the post, there is also a Like button from Facebook. Click on it if you like a post.

Most of the time, I will be updating my location on Foursquare (especially during events). You can follow me on Foursquare too.
