Stats for Blogger by Google

It's been quite some time that I log on to my Blogger account to blog. To my surprise, I find there is new function of the Blogger. It is the Stats. At least, I do hope it is something new, as I seriously remembered that I never saw that function in the Dashboard before all the years I have been using Blogger as my blogging platform.

Well, what does this actually mean and why it seems so significant that I want to blog about it? Currently, I relies on third party websites or applications or widgets to get the stats on all my blogs. Then I also depends on Google Analytics and Google Webmaster Tools to further understand the traffic pattern of my blog.

Well, with this stats, I can actually login to my Blogger account almost every day to check on the traffic trends instead of having to login to multiple websites just to get this information.

It is not a problem actually to login to multiple websites, but currently I am using Maxis Broadband which have the data capped and the service by this Maxis broadband is only good at certain area, and most of the time bad. In fact, just within my house here in Kulim, the connection would be good inside my room, but in the living hall, it switches between GPRS and HSDPA almost all the time which makes my connection not very stable.

Blogging can be more fun with all the statistic as we can see that whether people are really accepting what we blog and like the post. With statistic, we can have continuous improvement on what we blog and how we have our blogs designed.

Guess, I've blogged enough of today. Thinking of blogging on the Internet services that I am using tomorrow on my Connect With Mobility blog.

Today I got an email and I feels that the content is very good for sharing over here. It is about Paraprosdokian.

A paraprosdokian (from Greek "παρα-", meaning "beyond" and "προσδοκία", meaning "expectation") is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the reader or listener to reframe or reinterpret the first part. It is frequently used for humorous or dramatic effect, sometimes producing an anticlimax. For this reason, it is extremely popular among comedians and satirists. Some paraprosdokians not only change the meaning of an early phrase, but also play on the double meaning of a particular word, creating a syllepsis.

Ø Some people are like Slinkies ... not really good for anything, but you can't help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.

Blogging Again

After more than a month not posting anything new in this blog, guess it is the right time to post some updates rather than leaving the blog to idle.

Well, recent days, I was quite busy with my work that sometimes I don't feel like wanting to blog, although I do share some interesting articles like The "Middle Income" Trap and How Rich is Rich in my Money Master blog.

Other updates include learning how to use Wordpress. I got a blog account setup in Wordpress at However, I still haven't really get the gist on how to use Wordpress, as I just so used to the Blogger layout and everything that is in Blogger compare to Wordpress.

Anyway, I intended to maybe switch this blog to Wordpress after I know how to use it because Wordpress has a lot of customization, although Blogger is catching up soon. One thing that I don't really like Blogger is that it does not have category and only has label to do that where as Wordpress has tags and categories which means blogger can blog a lot more different topics in one blog vs multiple blog in Blogger.

Well, guess enough of updates. Wanna go watch TV now. Will update more next round.
