Getting Back To Blog!

Finally! Since my last post 2 days ago, getting online proved to be much more of a difficult task than convincing a client to place his business with me.

Internet connections in Singapore, along with other countries in the neighbouring region have been severely affected by the 7.1-magnitude earthquake in Taiwan. Since early afternoon yesterday, my attempts to get online was futile. And when I finally did, it lasted barely 5 minutes.

Last reported, the estimated duration needed to repair the underwater cables would require at least 3 weeks.

My observation tells me that accessing sites hosted in the US appears to be slower than the locally-hosted ones. For example, it took almost a full minute for Yahoo to load, and less than 3 seconds for SINGOV to show up on my screen.

I’m hoping the slowdown doesn’t affect fellow affiliate marketers and business owners whose sites are hosted offshore. If landing pages take too long a time to load, it could also mean a lost lead or sale.
