WhoIsAndrewWee.com Inducted into 9rules Network!

Wheeee…….

A little juvenile, but that was my reaction when I checked my email this morning.

9rules Network Community Director Tyme White dropped me an email with details of my acceptance into 9rules.

9rules Round 5


I have to thank Kloudiia for informing me of 9rules’ Round 5 admissions as I was busy with projects at that time and squeezed in my entry in the late hours (I think my entry was submitted 2 hours before closing).

The 9rules team must’ve had a Herculean task sifting through the 1191 entries for round 5, and kudos to Tyme, Mike and Scrivs for squeezing this out before Christmas. (I think the suspense might’ve been too much to bear).

9rules continues ranks at the top of Blog Network List’s rankings by value:

9rules

And that valuation can be expected to increase at the end of Round 5.

I was reflecting on the value of joining a blog network and beyond just the increase in traffic, what’ll be interesting and important for me will be:

  • Community: While there’re bloggers who blog their thoughts in isolation (perhaps as a form of catharsis), the bulk of bloggers will blog to be read. And to network with a community of your peers will help bring a different slant to your blogging. Besides ‘being’ a part of the community, I believe bloggers will actively ‘shape’ the community too.
  • Learning: Each blogger brings something different to the table, whether it’s a perspective, or a technique, a paradigm or a set of principles. As blogging cuts across geographical, social and cultural divides, there are ample opportunities for cross pollination of ideas. And a single idea can change the world.
  • Guilty by Association: I’d been reading Neil Patel’s blog and listened to a broadcast of Shoemoney’s Net Income show where Jeremy interviewed Neil. And I realized ProNet Advertising’s on 9rules Marketing community too (I must’ve been too focused on the content to see the 9rules leaf icon…). On another note, I’ve been deeply influenced by Guy Kawasaki’s books, Selling the Dream, Rules for Revolutionaires and my wife came back from Atlanta with my copy of the Art of the Start. His blog (also a 9rules blog!) is located at: Guy Kawasaki

I have the feeling that there’ll be some interesting blogging days ahead.

See you on the inside.

    Congrats, Andrew! There isn’t a more deserving person for the honor. You have been somewhat of a mentor to me since I began a few weeks ago. I keep an eye on your blog for much of my own direction.

    Hi Don,
    tks for the encouragement.

    This blog has been a labor of love for me and I enjoyed putting out the posts.

    During my journey, I’ve had the benefit of meeting with many motivated, innovative and creative internet marketers, and having the opportunity to pick up tips from the likes of Alex Mandossia, Stuart Tan, Jo Han Mok and Ewen Chia have helped a great deal.

    Not to mention all the stuff I picked up from Willie Crawford, Michael Cheney, Andrew and Daryl Grant from the recent World Internet Summit Singapore. and if you’ve been reading my blog, I still have a bunch of strategies from the eBay Explained session by eBay Univeristy Dean Griff from about a month back.

    so many things, so little time!
