Money is NOT Everything

Hi guys,

How is your weekend? . Good, I hope. All the while I have been telling you to work hard on making money online, rite? So today I want to share with you a true story about how money can tear a family apart.

Family Man

This is based on a true story. Mr. Z worked in the Air Force as a low rank officer. He and his family lived with his brother in law somewhere in KL. His wife sold nasi lemak at a Gas Station near their house in the morning. Mr. Z rode a motorcycle to work every morning. Sometimes he would travel with his family back to the kampung by riding  his motorcycle from KL to Muar with his son sitting in front. After work, he would play with his son at the park. They lived happily without much problem except for their sister in law who had been having some kind of an attitude towards them. She did not like Mr. Z and his family living there. However, his brother in law was a kind person. He told Mr. Z just to ignore his wife.

Opportunity

As life goes went on Mr. Z got promoted and  held a position in the Tender and Project department. After sometime, he managed to understand how tenders were given and set. When you are already very familiar with it, you are in the position to control it, rite? A lot of contractors/vendors will do anything to seduce you to either take bribe or set the tender in their favor. Since money was always the biggest need for Mr. Z, he was not strong enough to fight the temptation. He started to create many new tenders in favor of his clients. Earning from as little as a few thousands and up to hundred of thousands per tender, Mr. Z became a rich man.

He bought a couple of expensive cars and houses but he would still go to the office by riding his motorcycle to cover his tracks. He bought a new house and moved out from his brother in law’s house and lived in one of the houses that he bought. His family lifestyle has changed all in of a sudden. His wife stopped making nasi lemak in the morning and he bought expensive clothing and jeweleries for her. At the same time, he helped his relative financially, especially when his brother in law almost lost his house when his wife lost her job. At least, he had paid their courtesy back.

Dirty Money

As time went by, people started to talk behind their backs. How could an army officer live a luxury life like that? When it involves corruption and bribery, it is dirty money. No matter how nice you are, it will turn you into something bad eventually. Mr. Z started to enjoy, going to night clubs and GROs. His wife, believing that he was having an affair, started to become suspicious. They always fought and argued. Their son always became the victim. No more happy family time as it used to be. The problem got worse when Mr. Z wanted to get married and at the same time, the Anti Corruption Agency was investigating him.

His grown up son always ran away from home when he knew that his father wanted to marry a GRO. The family is now really torn apart and in a bad shape. From a happy family, now they are facing a huge family crisis.

My 2 Cents

First of all, it’s not my intention to humiliate this family. I just want to share that money is not everything. We still need money to survive, pay for car loan, education, credit card etc. But happiness is priceless. So there is no meaning for  being rich but you can’t find peace in your family and spend quality time with your kids.

We must work hard in making money offline or online but make sure it is legal. For offline, don’t take bribe,because it is just like taking drugs. Once you have tasted it you will hunger for more. Seriously, it is contagious. For online job, please don’t do click fraud or exchange clicks for making money online with Google Adsense. Don’t trick people to buy your e-books/products by using false claim. This are the dos and don’t that you should remember.

In Islam, we called it rezeki barakah, if you earn it the right way it will benefit you in some ways and bring happiness to you. If you steal from other people, the money that you earn will cause you a lot of trouble. Just remember, what you give you will get back. 🙂 Make your life decision wisely.

How often do you check your Adsense account?

Hi Guys,

My weekend  is full with wedding invitation that I have to attend. So I am planning to Raya ambush a few of my blogger friend, my first victim would be Mr Beruang hehe.Air sirap je pun OK 🙂

OK, back to the topic, how often do you log in to your account and check your adsense stat. Well to be honest I will check every half an hour or whenever I think about money hehe. The funny thing is Google team even name the syndrom G.A.S.S. – Google AdSense Stats Syndrome.

” The primary sign of affliction is the compulsive need to check AdSense stats every 15 minutes or so to see how much you’ve earned since your prior login. Sufferers face strong withdrawal when separated from a PC with Internet access and have been known to experience mild abdominal discomfort and general irritability “

So from the description of the syndrome, for those who log in and check their stat for every 15 minutes or less, then please be aware that you are suffering G.A.S.S. The cure ? by Dr Lankapo :

  • Post quality content  as much you can
  • Please visit popular blog every 30 minutes
  • Leave comment and
  • Join forum to share your opinion and views.

I got an email from them explaining why there are some delays in Adsense statistic report.Usually it takes about 15 to 30 minutes, but sometimes it can be delay for up to 24 hours. So for those who suffered G.A.S.S don’t panic ok. Your money won’t go anyway. For your information,  your reports won’t show data for impressions on public service announcements (PSAs). So if your Adsense still show Public Service Ad, then better change your content to more targeted keywords and increase your SEO.

Guys, how often do you check your account ? Are you suffering G.A.S.S too 🙂  Share your comment here

How reliable is your hosting ?

Just last week,I have problem with my domain, ForumHacc.com. It fails to redirect to my forum that I created for my Hiking Club. Well, I found out that Mr AKuBetul also face the same problem and even 5xmom also face problem with her hosting.

Let me introduce my hosting first and how I deal with my domain breakdown.I have been using Serverfreak hosting service for the past 3 years. So far, this is the second time only I face this kind of problem. As usual, I will buzz Serverfreak taukeh, Sam Lee through Yahoo Messenger  to check my hosting. My line of conversation will start like this :

lankapo ” Bro, can u check my domain/hosting ?

bla bla bla problem solved

Lankapo ” thanks bro”

Sam Lee “np”

🙂 He will always end all our conversation with that without asking for money.I mean not asking for extra charge and happy to help. I remember once, asking him to transfer my friend’s old  wordpress.com blog to a new hosting for free.

It turns out that TMnet DNS is having problem. He asked me to change my DNS into OpenDNS which only solve my problem, other user that use TMnet DNS will unable to reach my forum. So, that is the best solution for now as we cannot do anything with TMnet DNS.

Google Change IP

Mr Akubetul however have to pay for RM5 extra when he called his hosting provider. They told him his DNS has expired and need to be renewed. I am not sure about that. later that day I checked, it still down. His domain still failed to reach his blogspot.

A few days after that, my domain back to normal along with Mr AKubetul site. Mr Akubetul mentioned one of his theory to me that Google has change their IP and TMnet did not update. Anybody can verify this ? As I am no expert here.

Bluehost Disaster

Back to 5xmom, her Bluehost hosting drove her crazy hehe.

I tried logging in during the downtime and I cannot even access my cpanel. And I cannot submit a ticket because if I don’t login, I cannot submit a ticket and if I don’t submit a ticket, I cannot communicate with Bluehost. Doh…

I think the problem has been solved since she is not complaining about it or cursing kaw kaw Bluehost anymore.

Choose wisely

I am not going to say my hosting is better than you, or have more technical wise 🙂 (Sam, you should belanja me teh tarik for this). You can have expensive Premium hosting as much as you want. But when your site is having problem/breakdown, it will heavily rely on your Hosting Customer Service, rite ?.No matter your hosting is local or from oversea. Premium hosting or just 500 Mb like me hehe.

So choose the best hosting that is reliable and easy to communicate with their customer service.

Duit Raya from Adsense and Nuffnang

Hi to all my readers,

raya raya2

I just got back from my kampung after celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri for about a week.Filling my tummy with all kind of kueh raya, ketupat and lemang after fasting for one whole month. Now I am back at the office,  still in Raya mode off course. Maybe next week I will be fully ready for work hehe.

Well, after spending a lot of money shopping Raya, now I got to work hard to earn more money online.

Luckily  my second cash out for Google Adsense and Nuffnang is this month. At least can cover some of my expenses during Hari Raya.

My Adsense earning is improving, as more clicks coming from Ad Links 728 x 15 and 300 x 250 Text Ads within post.Just make sure your first adsense placement is on top folder of your page. This first ad that appear usually is the highest paying keyword. So user will tend to click ad that appear first with good placement.

I will receive my Duit Raya end of this month from Adsense with high currency rate. Last time I checked, 1USD is RM 3.5 :). For sure my wife will be happy collecting Adsense money this time. I bet she will ask for more tips.

PayPerPost, Inc.

With a lot of blog has been kicked out from PayPerPost, now more blogger turn to other source of online income. I have drop Pay Per Post long time ago when Google start to slap PR ranking. But my PR for this blog is still 0 and I don’t care hehe. I just want  to write and share with you all.

Thanks again to Nuffnang for sending the second cheque right on time. I was totally relieved as the first cheque incident didn’t happen again when I have to wait for nearly 2 months. As I mention in my blog before, I’m just starting to build up my traffic on my Malay’s blog, DamiaAnura.com . I will keep this 2 blog (lankapo.com and damiaanura.com ) update to focus my earning only on Adsense and Nuffnang. I will  leave out my 10 other blogs with different niche range from soccer,relationship, celebrities and affiliates. I just can’t handle it anymore 🙂 Too greddyi I guess.

Yeah rite,I know I love soccer and entertainment. I can give a lot of opinion in soccer (just admit it ok. I am the only one whom predicted Italy win Wolrd Cup 2006 🙂 .Anyway I am not a hardcore fan and don’t even have a steady club to support hehe. Not like Mr.akubetul.com, a hard fan of Liverpool team. I just love soccer that’s all. So, focus on what you good at is the best way to solve my dilemma. So I will update my other blogs occasionally or when I have something interesting to share and approve Entrecard request.Since you can get some lucky clicks from your old blog, you know.

I think that’s all for now, for all my muslim reader.. enjoy your Hari Raya and don’t forget to ask for forgiveness. Don’t forget to update your blog and don’t eat too much.You might get a stomach ache like me hehe.
