THANKYOULKY - BLOG

Dear Community,

I was deeply saddened by the news of Former Prime Minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s passing today.

The Netccentric Group’s heartfelt condolences are with his family, and indeed all Singaporeans today.

Mr Lee Kuan Yew is widely credited as being the founding father of modern Singapore, and I hold the personal belief that without him (and others who followed), Singapore would not have come as far as it has today.

In tribute of his invaluable contributions to the Singapore story, we have mobilised several initiatives to celebrate his lifelong achievements.

  1. For all Singaporean Nuffnang bloggers (all 55,113 of you), we encourage you to log in to your Nuffnang Dashboard, and enable the Tribute to LKY ad unit. This is a non paid ad unit and represents a personal choice entirely, but I do hope to see the entire blogosphere participate in this meaningful and unified gesture.
  2. We also hope that as many of our influencers and bloggers will take to their Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts to tweet their condolence/tributary messages, under our suggested hashtag, #THANKYOULKY. Once again, we hope to see a unified response in this area.
  3. Netccentric.com, Nuffnang.com.sg, SG.ChurpChurp, have replaced our default cover banners with a tributary LKY version.
  4. We will also be promoting the use of this hashtag along with tributary images on our mobile blogging platform Dayre, which is popular with many Singaporean users.

I hope you will all agree that he deserves this much and more, for all his years of service, and I encourage us to stand TOGETHER, to show the world what he meant to us.

I thank you in advance for your collective thoughts and prayers.

 

Best Regards,
Cheo Ming Shen
CEO
The Netccentric Group
(Parent Company of Nuffnang, ChurpChurp, Ripplewerkz, Reelity.TV & Dayre)

Nuffnang is celebrating our 8th birthday and to start the ball rolling here are 8 fun facts about our company:

  1. Nuffies refer to the staff working behind the scenes, while Nuffnangers refer to our bloggers. Don’t mix them up!
  2. Nuffnang is actually a Jaifakan word that means ‘Real Good or Real Cool’
  3. Nuffnang.my was our first website launched on 27th February 2007.
  4. The launch time was 2.30 a.m because a fortune teller had told Ming that it was the ‘most prosperous’ time to launch Nuffnang.
  5. Our first birthday bash was known as the Pajama Party.
  6. Nuffnang has been recognized in Singapore’s Book of Records as ‘Singapore’s First Blog Advertising Community.’
  7. Timothy and Ming first met across a Pussycat Dolls concert.
  8. When Nuffnang first started, our founders did not even know what an insertion order was. (An Insertion order is a essentially a document that specifics the dates and scope of a media buy, used in print, online and broadcast media.)

(Here’s a heads up: If you are interested in finding out more about our very cool backstory, drop by our official dayre account to find out more for yourself!)

While it has been fun planning for a party, we could not have pulled this off without the generous help and support of our partners:
