Our Government love for bloggers

Within a day, bloggers get two limelights….

First, the Youth and Sports Ministry said :

Ministry To Set Up Blog To Be Close To Youths
BERA, March 23 (Bernama) — The Youth and Sports Ministry will have its own blogsite soon in an effort to be close to and interact with the nation’s youths. Its minister, Datuk Ismail Sabri Yaacob said the move was made in view of the popularity of blogs among youths as a channel of information.

He said the existence of blogs should not be taken lightly as they had been effective in influencing voters to vote for the opposition in the recent general election.

“If we continue to rubbish the blogs, I am worried that it will one day take over the role of the mainstream newspapers,” he told reporters after a function to celebrate his appointment as Youth and Sports Minister at the Rakan Muda Complex, near here, Saturday night.


And the Information Ministry had gone ahead and had ‘dialogue’ with bloggers.

Shabery Prepared To Recognise Bloggers’ Role

KUALA LUMPUR, March 22 (Bernama) — Bloggers in Malaysia describe the willingness of Information Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek to meet with them as a recognition of the role played by the cyber community in the country. (Bernama)

Statistics from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) showed that 13.5 million people or 47.8 per cent of the Malaysian population of 28.29 million used the internet last year which proved that the cyber space had a high audience coverage.

And I have to say….

Awww….we bloggers feel so loved. Let’s have a look at Alexa stats (not totally accurate but for comparison only).


The red line is my blog. The greenish one is JeffOoi. And the errm….that blue one is the ‘bloggers in Malaysia’ mentioned above. (the blue line is barely noticeable cos it is at the bottom of the line) Need I say more?

  1. Ministers like to eat their own/colleagues words. What crap!!! First they condemn they now they follow the bandwagon.

    Woi! Pak Lah, you sure you don’t wanna hire political ANALyst ar? Email me lah.

  2. No. 1 – A blog is written by individuals, not a Ministry. I wonder whether he meant Website – more of an official information portal.

    No. 2 – Yeah, the other one also never heard before and both are not socio-political bloggers per se. Quite obvious he dare not invite prominent socio-political bloggers for a dialogue or he will learn the “hard truths” about what kind of tsunami his colleagues kena. As mentioned earlier, you don’t meet with bloggers. You engage them on the net – through comments and blogs. You win over them through your views and opinions. Kanasai! Not through some dodgy sounding forum or dialogue.

  3. Official website also ‘kau erm tim’ some more wana blog…
