After 2 weeks of work, the FIRST BETA of MeJournals is finally up and running thanks to Tim Goh (mostly him) and his critique+experiment JoFan!
MeJournals is a blog community created by us for you! A service dedicated to our friends and family and everyone we know and their friends and friends friend, friends friends uncle’s mother’s son in law’s cat’s ex-owner’s private doctor’s son….and …and… you know how a network works, =) So we really do welcome you to join us as we grow and multiply.
As you guys may have noticed, yes, we are working on WordPress. In many ways, you will find our platform very much similar to that of WordPress.com. However, while we do indeed share a lot in common, we also distinct ourselves from the usual WordPress by offering different things. We are running on a mass-deployment CMS platform called WordPress Multi-User, created by the members of the WordPress team for anybody who wants to set up a blog community just like this. And of course, the challenge here is to modify and improve it into something awesomer (if this word exists :P). ANYWAY, the point here is that this is no way any form of a carbon copy of WordPress, simply the platform provided to us to build our very own bloggers community upon, haha!
Being hosted on a local (Malaysian) server, if you are a local user, this site has a ping about 15 times faster than Blogger/Blogspot and Google. Besides, we also have over a 115++ Themes (and counting…) to select from and will constantly be refreshed from time to time. And it’s up to your creativity on how you want to customise it and present it. We provide full control for you over your page headers, footers and sidebars, as well as all sorts of add-ons like polls and a gallery function for you to well.. do whatever you want with it. Don’t be shy, our bandwidth won’t cry! Of course, there are lots more cool stuff for you to discover, all you have to do is to sign up and start exploring the greatness of MeJournals!
Note that MeJournals is currently still new and on BETA, so do not hesitate to send us your feedback, complaints and suggestions for making a better MeJournals experience for everyone. Your feedback will guide us closely in growing as a community.
As our very first members, we really hope you can make yourself at home and treat this whole thing as yours too, tell people about it, comment and work with us for improvements and we shall all grow together towards a whole new level.
As for now, we hope you enjoy your stay here and, more importantly, have fun!
ALL suggestions and comments can be directed to Timothy Goh @ timothygoh_wwe*at*hotmail.com & JoFan @ jo_fan430*at*hotmail.com Well, if you can, you may just come talk to us personally. =)
