Free Hosting giveaway promotion

21 August, 2006

This my giveaway idea for August.

Free hosting for life

Someone suggested in my last free domain giveaway that free hosting would be something he would be excited about. So here I give it to you – Free Hosting for Life! (Yes life! My life that is).

What you have to do

  1. Mention and link to my site (http://59ideas.com) from anywhere it is permissible for you to do so.
    Hint: You can mention this giveaway. Spread the word.
    For example, your blog, a forum you participate in, comment in another blog, … be creative
  2. Do not submit to link directories or link exchanges.
  3. Leave a comment telling me where you put that link.
    (Remember to leave your email so that I can contact you if you win.)
  4. Wait for the good news!

How Winners are determined

  1. Statistic will be based on Google Analytics’s referral data.
  2. All submitted links will be ordered in decending order for the number of referrals from the link.
  3. Links that provides that top 20% of all referred traffic will be the winner.
    For example,
    Total 100 referrals from all links
    Link A: 10 referrals
    Link B: 6 referrals
    Link C: 5 referrals
    Link D: 3 referrals
    all other links with 1 referral
    A, B, C are winners

Terms & Conditions

Some terms and condition to guard my ass.

  1. The giveaway is given in good faith and mutual trust. If you do not respect that or feel that I will any way cheat you, please do not participate.
  2. Participants should not spam or do anything in bad faith in order to participate.
  3. Hosting is for a reasonable website.
    Since bandwidth and storage requirement varies, I cannot host a site beyond my means.
    As a simple guage, if your site can be comfortably hosted on a few dollars a month shared hosting, I can afford you.
  4. If for whatever reason I cannot host you anymore, I will have a chat with you.
  5. Any ambiguity in interpretations or the lack thereof will be resolved by me and the decision will be final.

Moved to 59ideas.com

18 February, 2006

Thank you for visiting. This blog had moved to 59ideas.com.  

Since moving back behind the Great Fire Wall, updating this blog had became a pain and hasten the decision to cut over to my own domain as soon as possible.

Things are still a little unstable over at 59ideas.com as I figure out how to handle WordPress myself. The theme still need to be updated.

All entries had been exported and imported. Comments however will remain here. (Oh, I have not forgotten the comments on this entries. If you want a free domain, take a look.)

So, come on over!

When you own Urchin, why buy MeasureMap?

16 February, 2006

This blog is now at 59ideas.com.

Measure Map 

I’m still waiting for a Google Analytic account to peek at what’s inside. But that’s now what I’m going to talk about.

I am talking about the question I asked when I saw this post.

Google, if you recall, brought Urchin early last year which became Google Analytics later that year.

Few days ago, Google blogged they just brought MeasureMap.

No wonder searches for “MeaureMap” started showing up the past couple of days. People must be searching for what Measure Map is all about.

I once questioned how is MeasureMap going to stay around with Google Analytic. Guess I got the answer. If you can’t beat them, join them.

This is a one smart move by the people within MeasureMap. What is the insider story like? Did they planned for this along? Who approach who?

Someone like to spill some beans?


59ideas is moving outside the Great Fire Wall

16 February, 2006

Barely more than a month on WordPress and the Great Fire Wall of China kicks in. It was reported much earlier of course, but I was back in Singapore for holiday.

Nothing too exciting about it. When you live in China long enough, you learn to deal with it, like making this post with proxy.

This ban happened soon than I had expected. WordPress was meant to be a stepping board so that I do not have to deal with the backend system until later. (The original plan was to achieve a daily traffic of 200 unique visitors before moving.) 

So here are my choices - I could continue to post with proxy that or I could move to my own hosting.

I decided to take this chance and make the move. Over the next few days I will be setting up 59ideas.com.

From 0 to independence will stay on WordPress for a while. Best Blog on WordPress will of course stay on WordPress.
