Making A Living Off The Internet From The Rainforest of Borneo

Posted on 1st August, 2008

I had been trying to come up with a nice tagline for Sabahan.com that describes what this blog is all about.

My previous tagline was

About Computers, Blogging, Making Money Online, Marketing and Interesting Stuff

After launching Sabahan.com v2.0, I changed the tagline to

Internet marketing, blogging and everything in between…

While both taglines pretty much sums up what I do and write in this blog, it lacks the originality that I wish to convey that makes this blog stand out from other blogging and marketing blogs.

Anyone, anywhere in the world could have written this blog but not many people from Sabah in Malaysia (formerly known as North Borneo) blog about their experience making a living off the Internet while literally doing it from the rainforest of Borneo.

Then it occurred to me, since I do live in a little town where the rainforest is practically in my backyard, why didn’t I just use that in my tagline? With that in mind, I came up with this new tagline:

making a living off the Internet from the rainforest of Borneo

What do you think?

Here’s a picture of the small town where I live. This picture was taken by a friend of mine. I hope he’s OK with me putting it here without asking for his permission first. Sorry bro, can’t help but showcase your beautiful picture here.

I guess the next thing I should consider doing is to integrate motives of the local culture in the design of this blog. OK one step at a time shall we 😉

    I am really glad that you switched the name around. The third one definitely has a nicer ring to it and it is originally and eye appealing to boot! That’s a beautifully green place you are living in my friend.

    Bro, I LoooooooooooooooooooovE!! the tag line!! 😀

    moreover I love to do what you are doing… I need to learn a lots from you and around though. My last attempt was not very successful, I think becoz we were doing it based on scratches here and there and at the bottom it was ‘vague’.

    P/S:no prob. with the photo bro. I love to scale hills and fields in our countryside area whenever I’m home. Too bad my only cybershot has been broken recently. /sigh.

    The tag line may look long – “Making A Living Off The Internet From The Rainforest of Borneo”, but it is descriptive and give first time visitor the right perception.

    Well done. Keep it up.

    NGAM !! at least this year, you can talk more about e-nature and e-ecotourism, i think…

  • How’s the internet connection in Taman Negara kinabalu? I think its too hard to reach excellent channel.
