That was until the Umno civil war started in the first half of last year.
This blog which was recording an average of just 80,000 page views per month after the general election, experienced a surge in the number of viewers when the civil war broke out in April.
It peaked in July at about 160,000 page views.
Guess, there are people who still prefer to read a pro-establishment blog which took a neutral stance in the conflict, which this blog tried to be.
My position was to be a voice for the Umno's middle ground.
Of course it didn't go down well with both warring sides.
As I had previously wrote, I got whacked from all directions...some more vicious than another.
The funny thing, however, was that I was accused of the same things by both sides.
Some of the worst attacks came from fellow bloggers whom I used to consider as friends.
They simply can't take it that I'm of a different opinion from them.
For me, Umno should try to find peace among themselves and pull itself together to end the civil war so that it can put up a united front for the next general election which is just slightly over two years from now.
The other bloggers who attacked me simply can't agree with that or even tolerate my opinion.
Honestly, I'm tired of the whole thing because of that.
Furthermore, I have discovered that Umno itself seems to prefer for its members to tear each other apart so that only one faction would emerge as the winner and rule over everyone else.
That's why I decided not to have any part of it.
Unfortunately, those who attacked me continued to come up with new accusations such as that I have been banished, banned from writing politics and even described as a "pre-paid blogger". There were also other more ridiculous accusations against me.
Some people have fantastic imaginations.
Surprisingly though, despite all those accusations, and me slowing down to the minimum when it comes to writing about politics, there are still those who continue to read this blog.
The stats counter of this blog had went down to its normal of about 80,000 page views by November as the Umno civil war cooled off.
But it went up again these past two months. In December it was 93,380 and last month 107, 274.
Maybe some people started reading this blog again after I reduced its political contents.
Maybe people are tired of the repetitive political bullshit.
I hope that's true.
I'm tired of it too.
Guess it's better to write about normal everyday things which are really beneficial to the life of ordinary people.
As former Johor MB Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman once said at a Johor Umno convention many years ago,
"Kalau lah kita semua buat kerja yang sepatutnya kita buat, kita tidak akan ada masa untuk berpolitik sepanjang masa (If only we work the way we were supposed to do, we would not have the time to play politics without end)."
