30000 posts

Korat-farang.com forum now has over 30,000 posts. That’s not bad for a forum less than 15 months old. It’s also more than the combined total of our two nearest local competitor forums. In fact, it’s about equal to the next three local English language forums! Rock on Korat-Farang!!


Most views ever in one day

The most views ever in one day was yesterday. Thanks to YasoJack for publicizing this small, almost unknown blog. Korat-Farang.com forum appreciates the publicity, too.

A few quotes to fill the page.

“There is only one thing worse than being talked about and that is NOT being talked about.” Oscar Wilde

“We endeavor more that men should speak of us, than how and what they speak, and it sufficeth us that our name run in men’s mouths, in what manner soever. It stemma that to be known is in some sort to have life and continuance in other men’s keeping.” Michel Eyquem De Montaigne

“All publicity is good, except an obituary notice.” Brendan F. Behane

“Let us proceed under the assumption that the fairy folk do exist, and that Jack is not a gibbering moron.” Eoin Colfer, Artemis Fowl.

“People who lead a lonely existence always have something on their minds that they are eager to talk about, even a mythical fight for top spot.


Schoolgirl blogger banned from taking school dinner photos

A schoolgirl blogger has been banned from taking photos of her school dinners. It was a local council decision and not the school’s decision.

I have read some of the blog and it’s brilliant. It’s original, it’s fun and it’s informative. I hope Martha continues to blog in some way. She has a natural talent for it.


Here is the link to Martha’s blog: http://neverseconds.blogspot.co.uk

Here’s a thread about it on korat-farang.com forum: http://korat-farang.com/forum/index.php?topic=3211.0


Korat-Farang ranking progression

Korat-Farang.com is progressing nicely up the Alexa rankings. Today Alexa tells us the domain is ranked number 178,323 in the world.

Korat-farang is a forum for expats and others interested in Korat (Nakhon Ratchasima) and Thailand so we are never going to compete with Google, Facebook, Youtube or Yahoo – the current top four ranked sites. Don’t expect continual rises in the rankings. What goes up also goes down and this is very true for Alexa stats. They vary daily and figures for korat-farang.com fluctuate. The last three months have seen mainly rises but the three months before that saw mainly falls. It’s nice to see the rises and that in part reflects the activity on the forum. If the forum goes quiet, the rankings will drop.

February 2012

St Valentine’s day is nearly here. How romantic will you be? Will you shower your love in red roses? What would you do for love? On a hot summer’s night would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses? Yes? You took the words right out of my mouth.
