MyEG Services, a Pioneer in Blog Advertising

When you're running an internet startup like Nuffnang, you're bound to have a lot of ups and downs.

The downs come when you find out you've made a mistake somewhere and find it in yourself somewhere to pick yourself up to fix it.
The ups come at the times when you know you've done something right or achieved something that you've always dreamed of.

One of my dreams was to one day have a massive advertising campaign that runs on print media, television and/or radio... and also on Nuffnang Blogs.

Such a moment came to me just recently.

Just a week or two ago, I remember driving on the roads listening to Mix FM when I suddenly heard a radio ad that caught my attention and made me smile.

It was an ad for MyEG, a new website that allows us to do everything from checking and paying police summons, pay fines and/or DBKL assessment and compounds.

Most importantly, it finally allows us to renew our driver's license ONLINE. Something I will definitely be using the next time I seek a renewal.

Gone are the days where you have to wake up early in the morning just to go queue up to have your license renewed.

Now the particular attachment that I share with MyEG is that it's the first time Nuffnang blogs have been involved in a multi-prong marketing campaign alongside other forms of traditional media.

Massive advertising campaigns traditionally cover everything from television, print media, radio... and now we can start to say... blogs too... not just one blog... hundreds of them.

I owe this to James of Mantra, and to MyEG for giving us the opportunity.

So to my dear readers... please support our advertiser by clicking on the MyEG ad right after this post.

Check out their website, sign up and bookmark it. You're going to need it sooner or later... I know I will.

If you'd like to hear the radio ad I heard in the car that day... here it is.

I dig the idea! They should done it sometime ago. It's even better if JPJ upgrade the license with embedded chip, so if we want to renew it, just got to a machine and put money in it.
