Nuffnang Philippines to launch own ATM in 2013

Nuffnang Philippines, a leading online advertiser in the country, posted a photo today in its Facebook page the image of what looks like their own ATM.

The Nuffnang ATM is obviously backed by Security Bank as shown in the picture.

Just a few months ago, the company has been very vocal on its plans of changing the traditional payout option for their blogger partners. They’ve mentioned of creating an ATm where bloggers can easily withdraw funds. Nuffnang is also thinking of lowering the minimum cashout amount to at least Php500. This is definitely a good news for most bloggers out there as they won’t have to wait to reach Php2,000, the current cashout treshold, to withdrew their money.

Nuffnang has yet to release any official statement regarding this news other than the posted status in Facebook. Per Nuffnang Philippines post, this breakthrough will be launched in 2013. Here’s how they introduce this news on their Facebook page:

“Good news, Nuffnagers! Because we desire to serve you better by giving you more efficient cash outs… We introduce to you The Nuffnang ATM!” 

With this new Nuffnang ATM being rolled out in 2013, looks like we, Nuffnangers, will be looking forward for a great new year!

Nuffnang Philippines confirms compromised database

Nuffnang may be the most successful local online advertiser in the country specifically focused on blogs. But like any other online brands that maintain database of users, they are not susceptible to hackers as well.

It was first week in August when registered Nuffnangers, a name coined to Nuffnang advertisers, are said to received job offers from a certain platehead email domain. A week after, another job offer was sent under hack.ph. Both offers seemed to be too good to be true.

To date, there are no confirmations yet if the two job offers were indeed related with Nuffnang Philippines though most of the bloggers who received the email messages believed that these spam emails came from Nuffnang’s database.

Today, Nuffnang Philippines released an official statement confirming that their database has been compromised. This confirmation though did not specifically mention the two names that were first associated to the spam incidents. Below are parts of Abe Olandres’s, Nuffnang Philippines’ Country Manager, letter to their advertisers:

“It has come to our attention that our database has been compromised and some information about your account has been illegally retrieved.”

“Our servers are centralized in Malaysia, including our R&D which is also based there. We have requested them to thoroughly investigate this incident, and after doing a security sweep, have made additional necessary precautions to prevent this from happening in the future.”

“The copied information included names, emails, and URLs. This is the reason why some of you might have received spam email in the recent week. While the spam emails did not originate from our servers, we detected that at least one (1) email was sent out to that list.”

The letter assured Nuffnang bloggers that they are doing their best to strengthen their security system and advised subscribers to change their Nuffnang account passwords.

Happy 6th Blog Day!

Blogs have become one of the primary shapers of today’s internet generation. We no longer just rely to the traditional media for information because blogs do also provide us fresh contents to read.

As we celebrate the 6th Blog Day today, August 31, 2011, let us acknowledge those blogs that made an impact to us personally or even to our community.

BloggerEngineer.com is joining Nuffnang in recognizing the top six blogs who are changing the blogosphere through their ideas and concepts mirrored on their posts.

First on my list is the tech blog Unbox.ph. The blog is my primary source of news in the technology world. Backed by one of my idols in the Pinoy blogosphere Mr. Carlo S. Ople as the EIC, Unbox.ph ‘features awesome products for the modern-day Filipino’ ranging from gadgets, wheels, to movies and other stuff for men.

Next in line is my friend’s Unrequited No More blog. I can still remember how surprised she was when her blog got significant number of followers in a short period of time. She’s just merely sharing her experience of being ‘head over hees in love with her best friend (now boyfriend)’ and all of a sudden, people are starting to contact her for some love advice. Way to go, Kat!

Another personal blog is my third pick. This time, my Christian brother Kim’s Dreamland. He’s pretty much sharing things that interest him. I can actually relate to some of his posts but I don’t leave any comments. Let’s just say, I’m done with sharing personal stuff online.

Entertainment blogger Pinoy Gossip Boy falls under my fourth list. The blogger behind the PGB blog, Mr. Aaron Lozada, was recently crowned the Online Editor of the entertainment section of PhilStar.com. If you want showbiz scoops, his blog is the go-to place.

One of my favorite radio DJs Gino Quillamor’s An Introverted Mind in Extrovert’s Body is my fifth pick. This is his personal blog and I can say I can almost always relate on each of his posts. It’s as if I was the one who wrote them.

And the last post goes to the blog of my radio DJ idol Chico Garcia – Strange Fruit. I’m a ‘rusher,’ a term coined to all the fans and followers of Monster Radio RX 93.1‘s morning show The Morning Rush. I don’t know where he got his brain but his intelligence, creativity and extreme sense of humor are just way too much to handle. Good thing they all fit to his human brain.

That’s it! I’ve finally completed my list. Can I just add that this thing is making me feel sick on a long weekend? I mean, I’ve been squeezing my brain to remember the best blogs out there that need to be recognized. I know, some of my picks are not new in the blogosphere but they’re not that ‘mainstream’ as other popular blogs. I believe, they should be recognized too!

Happy Blog Day everyone!

Being A Nuffnang Blogger is the Hottest Thing Since I Became a Blogger

August is BloggerEngineer.com‘s (formerly HIRAYA) birth month. It started as a personal blog documenting my daily stories way back in August 2005. Six years after, the blog undergone several changes to fit my own needs in this cyberworld.

After being a personal blogger, I started accepting invites to various sponsored events in exchange of promoting their products and/or services on this blog. This became the transition point to relaunch HIRAYA.

The blog joined Nuffnang Philippines in October 2008 which paved the way to my passive online money making. Nuffnang Philippines not only served as a provider for advertisement materials on my blog but also added vibrant and colorful blog-related ads.

My membership to Nuffnang Philippines put my blogging experience into a higher level. I was able to meet several bloggers who eventually became my friends in real life.

Nuffnang Philippines also became the bridge of bloggers to a lot of companies who are willing to advertise online. They hold movie screenings and other events that make blogging a worthwhile experience.

One of the companies who is now affiliated to Nuffnang Philippines is the pizza house that revolutionalized food delivery in the Philippines since 1989 – Pizza Hut.

Pizza Hut now offers Hot on the Dot Pizza deliveries: 30 minutes AND hot (as indicated by the thermally activated sticker you place on the pizza box upon receiving your pizza) or your pizza is FREE!
