10 REASONS WHY YOU (Dazzlingly remarkable Bloggers) SHOULD BE THERE
10. To Establish a Network
It is always cool and interesting to know more people in your life, and meet new smiling friendly faces of Kuching local folks. Kuching Bloggers have significantly grown in number over the years, and this meet provides a platform for the Bloggers to actually meet up with their readers and the other bloggers whom they may have come across via their blogs/online interaction. People can appear to be much more intriguing and outstanding in person than what you only perceive through reading their blogs. This is your chance to get to know more hunky guys and pretty chicks of Kuching !!!
9. Increase Your Blog Readership
Getting to know more Bloggers, and be known to more Bloggers, meaning that you will eventually gain real readers, the constant Bloggers who do follow up the happening threads of the Malaysia Blogosphere. You may even earn yourself some fans, and having your blogs read will always be something rewarding. Some people may frown to the idea of fame-whore and desperate attempts at getting more traffic and page links to their blogs in opposition to what generally is described as non-fame-seeking blogging, but I can boldly point out the issue with a question: What is the point of blogging if no one reads your blog? Readers come and readers go, through bloggers meet, you get to connect to Bloggers who will end up reading your blog, thus tapping into their readers as well in return. It is a win win situation, everyone benefits from this.
8. Increase Your Blog Traffic and Page Links.
For those bloggers who are fanatically obsessed with how many page links they get to their blog, Google Page Rank, Technorati Rankings, daily traffic and such, this is one rare golden opportunity for you. I know many Bloggers who claim themselves to be non-traffic seeking, are secretly wishing to be like Kenny Sia/XiaXue one day. This Meet is where you can start, though there is no promise of how far you can go, but certainly, you will get more traffic and page links, because we are making the meet B.I.G !!
7. Support Each Other
We ought to stand together, and unite ourselves as one body, and protect our freedom of speech!! If we do not support each other, who else do you think will support our blogs and our cause? We need to stand firm with what we believe, and protect what we hold on dearly to ourselves.. our blogs, and most importantly, our voice. Showing up in the event in large numbers, means that we acknowledge each others presence, and we do in fact come together in a common understanding and purpose of blogging.
6. Share Your Thoughts
This is the best place to talk, talk, talk, and talk !!! I dare say all Bloggers have a lot in their minds, and this is the best time and place to actually find people with mutual interests, and share your opinion and views about just, virtually anything!! Fun is definitely guaranteed, how can I say so? Because, I know that being Kuching Bloggers, we will never run out of topics for conversations, or run dry of humour !!!
5. The place to CAMWHORE
Yes Yes Yes !! Bring all your cameras along, we can camwhore together, and this has always been, and will surely turn out to be the highlight of the event. So dress up and make yourself look gorgeously killing HOT for our very own photoshoot session, with us being our own professionals in photography!!! And the best of all, all your faces will be plastered all over the Kuching Blogosophere when everything is done!! By the way, if you are an anonymous Blogger, we shall accommodate your rights, do not turn away from the event!! If you do not want your name/blog address to be mentioned, just let us know, and we wont publish them. If you want your photos out of the pictures, we will gladly oblige to your request. Just turn up for the event, the more the merrier and I can assure you, the first timers will be surprised on how grand the camwhoring activities can turn into.
4. Prove Ourselves Worthy
Interestingly coincidental, Penang Bloggers are having their very first bloggers meet one day after ours!!! We must show what we are made of, and who we really are by making it to the Meet, in non-kiasu ways of course. Nevertheless, this is NOT our first meet, we have plenty before, but this one, is fully open to any Bloggers. This is a bold step, to something greater, and we are progressively moving to that larger picture.
3. Enjoy Yourself
How much better can the night be, when you are surrounded with familiar faces of Kuching Bloggers? Fun is the keyword of the night. Just be there, and you will see.
2. Kuching Blogosphere RAWKS
Oh, in case you have not noticed, Kuching has produced many quality and well known bloggers, needless to point who and who, we are considered the cream of the milk amongst the Malaysian Bloggers !! You should be proud be the known as a Kuching Blogger, why? Because Kuching Bloggers simply RAWK !! That means, YOU RAWK too !! Therefore, being there at the meet, shows that you are truly, part of something really special.
1. Simply because, simply ROBIN will be there.
