I am trying something new here, which I will explain further down the post.
#1) Your first post
First proper post in 2008 – Better don’t read. Will waste your 2 minutes of your life.
#2) A post you enjoyed writing the most
I’d probably pick this blog entry – I have a new hookah, baby
Until today, I still get emails and comments from readers who are looking for exact location where I bought this hookah (shisha). I usually don’t reply them because I can’t recall the place. Too long ago =_=
In this post I explained how I got lost during the journey of purchasing this hookah. Damn, I miss those university life. Two stupid people want to smoke shisha so desperately.
#3) A post which had a great discussion
Personal Blog Is A Waste Of Time – In this post, I’ve listed five reasons why bloggers who blog about personal life is a waste of time and I accidentally (or rather, successfully) caused a debate between two polars.
I wrote this posts to convince myself to stop blogging at Ahbing.com, then I realised there are loyal readers who enjoyed my writings.
I even received a few personal emails to discuss this topic in private, some agree with me, some literally spit on me. But the discussion is heading in a positive direction.
Ironically, that posts convinced myself to continue blogging at Ahbing.com
#4) Your most helpful post
I’ve spend much effort to compile the resources for this posts, and this post attract a lot of attention. And from this post alone, I received many appreciation emails, a chance to host a show, and newspaper appearance.
Besides that, I’ve established myself as KK Food blogger. ekkk! accident bah tuhh. I was doing this for fun only ^^;
And also from this post, I know what my potential reader wants. As long as I am providing value and good resouces, more readers will come back. I foresee a few monetization methods too.
I am compiling more similar posts now. These posts very expensive man… have to use own money ^^;
#5) A post with a title that you are proud of

I had most fun when I am compiling these blog entries. Not surprisingly, these are my favourite titles too.
While I was studying at Australia, I was the Iron Chef. House mates buy whatever ingredient they want to eat, and I’ll cook.
I also use this opportunity to share my cooking experience with you.
Cook + take photo + blog + share knowledge = isn’t that awesome?
#6)A post that you wish more people had read
This is a post I wishes more people will read (or absorb the value from it).
This post is what reminds myself of what I am currently doing. I am taking unconventional route, and I am going to take higher risks compare to others.
And do you know, short and simple posts are more difficult to write compare to long and gibberish posts?
I am hoping you can absorb the essence of the blog entry and apply in situation where you think is appropriate.
P/S: If you wish to read more older posts, I encourage you to visit the tabbed links on sidebar.
This is one experimental post I am testing at local blogs.
The idea is to publish a post that is a list of 6 links to posts that you have written that respond to the following 6 categories.
Your links should be the following:
- Your first post
- A post you enjoyed writing the most
- A post which had a great discussion
- Your most helpful post
- A post with a title you are proud of
- A post that you wished more people had read
This is to encourage you to dig back into your old archive and share the older contents to your readers.
You might like to add a few explanations to different links – for example to talk a little about why you enjoyed writing a post.
If you tag your posts or are going to tweet a link to it – use #6links as a tag to help the meme continue.
This post was inspired by Problogger.net, who did the same few weeks ago.
