A million thanks



Thank you. I made my first million while huddled with Jeff Ooi of Screenshots at the solicitors' office discussing the NSTP's lawsuit against us. Reaching the million is a personal achievement made possible by each visitor who has been to my blog since May last year. I am not the first millionaire blogger (Jeff, for instance, got his in 2003) and I certainly will not be the last. You can see the meters on the other blogs speeding at breakneck speed to reach the mark.

    Rocky, congratulations, but the battle is not over yet. It is only the beginning of a long and tedious struggle against stupid, lies, oppression, plagiarism, hypocrisy, idiocy, racism, religious extremism. the journey has just begun. Rocky, continue the fight. We shall turn their days into nights, we shall let them see stars on high noon. To strive, to seek and not yield.

    Dear Bro,
    Every cloud has a silver lining. Since you got sued and it became published in mainstream newspapers, it has lured many malaysians (like me, for instance)to go into your blog.Thats how i look at it. My two cents worth.
    Keep blogging bro

    Yep! Keep up the good work. Enjoyed reading the blogspheres like yours and others more than the print!

    And this Rehman Rashid guy... yep, I agreed with you and all... to an ordinary layman, his writing is rubbish and I couldn't understand much what he was writing; stop after a para or two and that is why I missed out on the section referring to blogspheres.

    While others chose to write in simple English (like what was written in the blog), it makes reading enjoyable... but definately not 'his' article.

    Frankly, after all these years that I used to admire him, now I think is definately a 'LOOSER' all the way - he got no more respect from most of us, other than the 'master' he chose to lick.

    The reason I was reading that print issue was becos we used to receive a free copy daily from the press.

    Thanks a million for having the guts to take on the corrupt and the hypocrites. To hit a million in less than a year is fantastic, eat your heart out Jeff. Now no politician worth his salt will dare to ignore you. Go Rocky go, got get them. Lead the revolution. Continue the unending struggle against lies, hypocrisy, treachery, plagiarism, deceit. The whole country is behind the freedom fighters.

    Rocky,

    Congrats. To get 1 million hit is no small feat. You are
    a blogger to be reckoned with.

    Yup, the powers-that-be wont dare to ignore you now.

    So ironic, the NST staff aint allowed to read yr blog at the office. But am sure the first thing Kali does in the morning is read your blog! Lol!

    He's red ... hmm maybe blue in the face now that he knows your blog has touched the 1 million mark.

    Yo kali you think you have kicked Rocky into the wilderness. Look who's having the last laugh.

    Wooo hooo! Mee rebusssssssssssss!!! yaay!!

    This is a blessing in disguise.

    If not for the civil suit, you would not have hit this mark so soon.

    Nature has its way of always rewarding "the surpressed and the intimidated" with victory.
    And the Oppressor is always looked upon with disdain and ultimately ostracised.

  55. Tks for arranging the talk yesterday evening. Its enlightening.

    The one million hits you have reached is a testimony to your popularity and your integrity as a blogger who is trying to uphold the truth.

  57. Sdr Rocky,

    ReplyDelete
  58. One million hits in less than a year works out to about two hits per minute.

    Wow! Is that the benchmark you're setting for other bloggers, Rocky?

    And "Mee Rebus" becomes a battle cry amongst bloggers.

    Sometimes fact is truly stranger than fiction. That's awesome, bro.

    Rocky Dear

    Hey, Rocky dear,
    A million hits a year,
    Isn't something to shout about
    In the blogging world today,
    Where blogging king like RPK
    Claims to hit a million hits a day.

    May I ask, Rocky dear,
    Cos why you blog, we're NOT clear.
    Is money the main driving force
    Behind your motivation?
    If the answer is in the negative,
    Sure you owe us an explanation.

    Do you believe, Rocky dear,
    Blogging's just a pastime
    To express thoughts without fear.
    Our famous RPK did confide in me,
    Something that I ought to learn:
    "I earn to live, NOT to live to earn."

    ReplyDelete
  61. way to go bro. show them the power of a good blogger. nobody can censor the contents in a blog, event though they dont like it.

    the mainstream media should appoint you as their consultant.

  62. Congratulations! - Has there ever been any doubt? Nasty P can eat its heart out.

  63. How exactly do you make money out of blogging? You say that you are a millionaire but where does the money come from? I can't imagine - unless you have adverts on your blog. But I can't see any

    We are with you.

  65. Congratulations, Rocky!
    I am proud to have been around to witnessed you reaching this milestone on your blogger's journey (which you will never walk alone!)

    How does it feel? Is there a springy lilt to your steps as you walk now. a shoulder swagger perhaps, for the next few days will be understandable and almost expected,but know when to drop it , ok?

    but those unflinching cool gaze, don't lose it., it is bound to intimidate the nstp and the gang of four. And the gaze though worth a thousand words, yet, it's not subjudice. Yet it speaks volumes.

    Put a clickable poster thumbnail on your blog and let that gang start their day as they perused your blog, with their daily heart palpitations and leaden depressive feet and pallid fearful faces and a stammering. just looking at them n will be clues that they have a peep or more of what you said.

    once again, congratulations. I am sure i contributed some 40 hits or so and at least,may i hang and lepak around and bask in you reflected glory? can or not?

    Bro Rocky

    Only a million! I would have thought that you should get at least two million with the help of Kalimulah and gang.

    Congratulation to you brother! Don't be cowed by Kalimulah and gang. Please give Kalimjulah's boss, Mr I do not know, all the publicity he needs. Of course, lets not forget teh famous SIL, who is also a "close friend" of Johari Baharom.

    Well, I am glad that there was no more releases of "taiko" from SImpang Rengam after teh scandal was expose by bloggers. Actually "Mr I Do Not Know" told Johari Baharom not to blame his Son-in-law on the RM5.5 million because the figure was much higher!!

    May I ask whether the release of Mr Tee Yam @ Koo Tee Yam (aka "Pai Ka Lek"), the Kuala Lumpur taiko that was sent to Sinpang Rengam by the great Tan Sri Bakri, former IGP, was also connected to teh son-in-law or Johari Baharom?

    By the way Mr Tee Yam was released after 8 pm at night !!

    In the Mr Tee Yam's case, the first time in history that such character that was sent to Simpang Rengam was given massive publicities by Star and NST, of course.

    Hi Peter,

    From you way you express yourself, you sound very much like RPK, but I believe you aren't him. I don't think he has the time to move around posting here and there.

    I do agree that he's NOT making anything in the meantime. I also believe that adverts will appear on his site sometime in the future. He needs an income, unless he's a millionaire blogging for fun.

    We must also understand that registering a million hits after 10 months (jun06 - mac07) is not really significant. That works out to appro. 3333 hits a day. I mean, as an internet site, it's NOT a money spinner yet. I'm NOT an expert on internet marketing, but I believe a site that generates 100k hits a day should be able to generate a handsome income as well. Rocky knows this very well, and I'm sure he and many other bloggers are trying to drive traffic to their sites.

  70. Syabas ,
    Congratulations for the 1 000 000 hits.

    I am sure theres many more Malaysian who actually do not know about your site here Rocky.
    To all blog readers here , please helps to spread out Rocky page by sending e-mails to your friends.
    Malaysian really needs Bloggers and web master like the class of Rocky and Jeff Ooi.
