I don’t quite recall when exactly I started blogging, but I remember the early days I used to Blog in Blogger.com and have created more than 10 Blog sites. Many of them are no longer active except a few which I normally auto-post from YouTube.
One of my favourite and can be considered as a popular Blog is My Gadget Blog. I started to blog in 2010 and the contents are mainly from my interest in electronic gadgets which I purchased (nothing get sponsored). I love to Jailbreak the iPhone as early as iPhone 3G (but stopped doing that jailbreaking after 2014). May tips are shared among readers and that was the time, the site became very popular.
After several years of creating and experimenting with different blogs, I finally decided to take seriously and bought a domain name iotworld.co which is the starting point for my entrepreneurship journey into the tech space i.e Internet of Things. It was in 2016, when I started to blog this topic quite seriously. It covers many aspects of IoT including its definition, applications, benefits, challenges, tips, the country’s IoT challenges and many others.
This Blog has partly helped me to be recognised as an IoT Thought Leader. The idea for this blog is quite simple – to help others in their IoT journey. How to prepare themselves with this emerging technology and the impact of business disruption in IR 4.0.
The best thing about this blog, it also provide me with other opportunities to create contents on other social media channels such as YouTube, Podcast and TikTok. Furthermore, it has given more visibility and exposure to get myself invited as Keynote Speaker in conferences, seminar and webinars. Some of the contents of which I have created earlier has been turned into eBooks (Your IoT Journey and IoT Notes) – which I have given the subscribers for free.
