Lebanese Bloggers GetTogether 001
By admin N : What a night it was! We were very pleased to attend the first bloggers meeting by leb aggregators 3 days ago and meet many of you. The event started with a screening of a mini-bio slide prepared by each blogger to introduce the fellow bloggers to their page. Then we listened to 3 guest speakers: Ragmag’s editor in chief, a representative from Communicate magazine and LBC blogs. Then we went off to mingle among the crowd and we met some fellow bloggers like Gino, Rita Kamel, Sareen Akharjalian, and Liliane assaf (aka funkyozzi). It was generally a fun, laid back event were we got to enjoy good company and good music. I also did spot some familiar faces in the crowd, like Teressa Eid and Mohamad Hijazi, HI!
Being a food lover, I would like to say thank you to Zaatar w Zeit who were kind enough to cater the event as well as a special thank you to all of you who brought snacks.
On the other hand, after congratulating Leb agg on this great initiative, I have some comments to make.
First of all, I did not appreciate how some people didn’t even bother to shut up when Liliane took hold of the mic. We, as a critical eye to our society, should at least know the basics like how to shut up when someone is speaking. Not cool man, NOT COOL.
Second of all, what’s with the bloggers who thought they were too cool to attend this event, easy on the ego guys. We are supposed to be the divas, not you *hair flip*
Last but not least, just a quick suggestion, I think this event could have been better. Most of us didn’t know each other and we were all kind of shy to go to another person and just introduce ourselves. So we came up with the idea of having a Q&A, like each blogger(s) takes the platform for a certain amount of time to introduce his/her blog and then people can ask them questions and make propositions. Why not?
Looking forward to see you again the soonest!
