Omy Most Insightful Blog Finalist Interview: DK

I was being interviewed by Omy because of the Singapore Blog Award.

Below are my interview questions. It can also be found on Omy Blog.

How long have you been blogging and why did you start blogging?
I’ve been blogging since 2002. I started blogging after reading someone’s blog and find that it’s an interesting idea. My first blog was kinda boring. Mainly talking about my feeling towards my ex and stuff. I have this stupid idea that if my ex stumble upon it, she might be touched by the things that I said and patch back with me. She did stumble upon my blog, but the patch back part was just my wishful thinking.

How do you feel to be in the running as one of the finalists in the first Singapore Blog Awards? What do you think is your chance of winning?
I was quite surprised that I’m in the finalist. Didn’t expect to be in the top 10. I don’t think I have any chances of winning the most insightful blog award. There are a couple of power house in my category. I’m already very honored to be in the finalist with them.

Who do you think are the strongest bloggers in the category you are nominated for and why?
I guess it got to be Mr Wang. Why? Cause Mr Wang Says So. Haha. OK ok, seriously, I find that his blog is very insightful. Read his blog an you will know that he is the clear winner.

Name some of the bloggers whom you look up to and why (need not be in the running for the Singapore Blog Awards, and can mention overseas bloggers too)?
mrbrown. Really respect the him a lot.

Your prediction for the winners in each of the 7 categories:
Best Youth Blog: Jaymes
Best Design Blog: Veron
Best Blog Shop: Miss Loi
Most Entertaining Blog: East Coast Life
Most Insightful Blog: Mr Wang
Best Individual Blog: Chillycraps

The first paragraph looks real. For a moment, I really thought that it is indeed from Singnet. Then I saw the next 2 paragraph. Hmmmm…..

Funny, 1st paragraph, they warning users about phishing emails that ask for user email account and password. 3rd paragraph, they asking users for their email account and password. Contradiction leh.

Anyway, confirm phishing email. Cause nobody will ask you to send your password over email. So don’t bother replying to such email.
