    Burning my own bridge

    Yup, above is Malaysian flag. On 31th August is our independent's day. Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka! I'm looking forward to watch the fireworks display tonight. It's gonna be great. I'm a proud Malaysian living in a beatiful country. Talk about being proud, i just got an offline YM from a dear friend of mine.

    Is it true having your own hosting and domain makes you look cool? His brother keep bragging about his own hosting and domain and how it is great to get alot of traffic. For me, having your own hosting and domain for your blog is just as same as i'm using Blogspot. And yes, i do run my own server at home but what's wrong having my journal here?

    For your infomation, i've been online for almost 11 years now and i have couples of my own site. Don't you think this is odd a guy with blog on a free space? Nope...not at all. Having your own hosting and domain not gonna guarantee you a jack. So, talk my hands will ya. To be honest, there's no "fool-prove" in the internet. There's no guarantee you gonna make big unless you were among the pioneers of the internet. I've heard many people making good income from a free hosting and i'm sure you've heard many "i-own-my-own-hosting" going straight to the drain.

    So, what's the catch? Can we blame the host? Can we blame the free-host? This talk has been debated for years and nobody can spill out the concrete answer. Yes i know free-hosting limited your site but can that be the main reason? Free-hosting doesn't allow any fancy "PHP-java-thingy", but again, is that the main reason?

    All the best to those who talk big...and for me, i'm burning my own bridge. There's no turning back and i'm happy with my free-space. Yup, talk is cheap but not as cheap as my free-space. LOL. Selamat Hari Merdeka semoga minda kita merdeka daripada kongkongan yang kita bina sendiri. Can't wait for the fireworks display tonight.
