Blogged out on Star Metro!

*Take a deep breath*

....


I'M A COLUMNIST I'M A COLUMNIST I'M A COLUMNIST!!

blogged out column
It's called Blogged Out


OMG, I'M A COLUMNIST FOR THE STAR METRO! THE STAR!!!

two third column


*Jumps around in joy*

This is so exhilarating.

If I do remember correctly, and so far reassured by the editor himself (thank you Brian!!!), this is the first time a blogger has ever been given a column of her own in the newspaper in Malaysia.

OMFG!!!!

A blogger? A column! In the paper!!

(This is going down in Nicole's book of history)


What is the column going to be about? Well, about blogs of course! (Like duh, what else can a blogger talks about?) And everything related to it. Blog events, blog world, blog 101, blog advertising, blog travels, bloggers, ethical blogging, non ethical blogging, etc.

The column will be published in the Star Metro within Klang Valley every Saturday.

star metro nicolekiss column


You can skip reading newspaper everyday but you HAVE to grab a copy of the star every SATURDAY k?! Make it a ritual!! :D :D :D

Do it for me~~ *sappy eyes*

If you're not from this part of the area (Klang Valley), fear not, you can always go online to read about it.

Here's the link to my first article published. It's been heavily edited to tone down my crudeness and non-censored writings (ohh poo...), but basically the contents are pretty much the same.


When given the option to feature blogs of interesting topic or bloggers who are influential in the blogosphere, a thousand and one bloggers pop up in mind.


But ONE particular blogger stood out among the rest.


Blogger mahathir


"Mr Mahathir, can I interview you?"

  28. I've read about the article on The Star newspaper. After that I type the URL of your blog on my browser. You have a nice blog. x)

    ReplyDelete
  29. First time reading your blog.
    Nicely done =D

  30. i think it is quite a good move to feature Dr M as your blogger of the month. as he is the hottest news around nowadays, major publication such as The Star would really need that boost if you feature him as well as get an exclusive from him. of course limit the politics crap, just highlight the blogger side of him.

    need a lot of thinking of how to tackle this interview if you do get it.

    anyway all the best!

  31. Congrats on your new job :) That pic of Tun Dr Mahathir looks unusual...what a bloggerly pose! LOL

  34. cangratulations Nicole! and u have celebrations to all the bloggers..

    ReplyDelete
  35. If ever you get to interview Dr. M do ask him why he dismantled our judiciary in 1988 that till today it has yet to recover from it. And ask him why he didn't make Abdul Malek the Chief Justice that Malaysia should have but never had

  36. Congrats! How much your blog sponsor paid The Star?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Congratulations! You write well, love your travel reports. You deserve the honor. :)
