I started this blog in 2008. The main idea is to share useful information about Cambodia. Later I became the solo editor at Cambodia Online Newspaper. My mission accomplished. I made my dream come true. It’s the beauty of technology that helps me to build such a useful place for people who look for daily updates about Cambodia.
The main topic have been changed many times. We will focus more on technology and how to live beyond it. It is good to catch up new technology that is coming up everyday. At the same time we also need to limit ourselves to have an off-line life with our family and friends.
The main purpose of this blog is to update new technology and we could use it to live a better life.
With my online experiences, I also want to help small business owner to promote their business on the internet. I created my web development packages. I also provide consulting services about building brand online via business website and social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
Internet gives opportunities to the business owners to get connected direct with their customers. I know how the web works. If you need any help, do not hesitate to contact me.
Here what other people said about me:
Tyan Young from Cambodian Alliance:
Meet Santel. He runs a social media blog about Cambodia and always knows what’s going on in his country. If it happened, more than likely it’s on his blog. He’s smart, talented, determined and loves his country!
Ben Kellas via comment:
Santel you are the Social Media King of Cambodia. Keep up the great work!
Peter Hogan from Khmer440:
Santel is a local rather than an expat but he richly deserves to be on any Cambodia twitter top ten.
