Did you ever check out your country Alexa top 100 sites? You can easily check it by visiting the Alexa site. There is some information that you can gather from the top 100 list. The most obvious info is that you get to know the favorite sites in that particular country. That means you get to know what the people in that particular country likes. It’s one good way to do market research if you’re planning to do business. You just need to remember that this market is only for people who have access to the internet. Take for example – Malaysia Alexa Top 100 sites. You get to know where Malaysian surfer hangout. Plus if you’re a foreigner that planning to visit or travel to Malaysia, you can check out Malaysia Alexa Top 100 sites for information regarding the country, culture and the people. You’ll also get to know what’s really going on in the county at that moment. If you plan to buy something for a Malaysian friend that you’re going to visit than you really need to check it out. You don’t want to get a gift that he/she doesn’t like but pretend to like it.

Building links to your blog is a must if you really want to get more traffic. It’s an ever continues work that keeps on going and going. Here’s a site that you can add your blog into their million blog list project. The site is trying to get 1,000,000 blogs to list themselves on their site. The project just started on April 10th, 2008 and just reaches No.1139 as I write. You just need couple of seconds to add your blog into it and you have the chance to be chosen as Blog of The Week. That will increase you blog exposure and more people will visit your blog. This blog is listed at No.1107 and that seems to be a good number. You can also wait for the list to reach your favorite number and add your blog. If you have a lot of blogs to add then I suggest you spread them out. That might work better in getting more exposure without others feeling annoying about it.

The first thing that I do everyday right after having my breakfast is to check my email. This has become a routine work without thinking about it. The email that I received each day is about 20~50 and that does not includes spam email. That’s considering to be a lot for me. I even have friends that received more than hundred a day. Each day I send out at least 5 emails. I tried not to send out too many emails as I really considered that as pollution. As emails are free and easy to send out, a lot of people tried to make full use of it. That is how email spamming arises. It’s not a good thing as this causes a lot of junk email going though the network. Can you imagine the email that we send out with important issue or information is flooded together? It won’t be a surprise that some of our emails do not reach their destination. The question is where do these missing emails go?

When it comes to international call or long distance call, I tend to go for phone cards or calling cards. It’s not that I can’t make the call directly from my phone, just that it is better to use the cards. It might be a little bit troublesome to use the phone cards because you need to dial a lot of numbers before you can get through, but still there are couple of benefits that worth all the trouble. The first benefit is save money. The rates are much lower then calling it directly from your home phone. You can compare it by just checking the telephone book. The rates are listed there. If you’re using phone cards, you’re restricted to use the amount of money that you bought for the services for each cards. That helps to control the money you spend for making calls. Sometimes we just get carried away when having a conversation, especially with our loves one. We always end up taking too much time on the phone. The best thing about phone cards is simple to use. We don’t have to sign any contract to use it. Just pay for the cards. Follow the instruction to push the numbers and we’ll be connected. It’s best for everyone, especially for students that study aboard.

There is just one thing that I have to mention about this site. I’m not just having coffee on Monday but every weekday, sometimes even Saturday and Sunday if I have unfinished work to do. I think most of us are having this kind of work schedule. It would be better to have a shot of coffee comic at least for every weekday. That’s 5 comic per week. It may sound a lot of work but many people are having at least a cup of coffee every day. Only a cup of coffee per week for Monday is just not enough.
