Blogging Seminar


When my constant-Anagon Collection buyer Megann texted me about a blogging seminar, I was soooo thrilled! I really wanted to attend one, and listen to speakers' tips on blogging. But then she actually invited me as a SPEAKER! :D

I thought June 25 is still far, but then I realized that days do fly so fast, and tomorrow is THE day already! I don't know what topics or stories to talk about in this speaking engagement, especially when I just read a twit from a famous local writer/editor that "Note to writers: It's usually a good thing to not talk about yourself in your article. You're not as important as you probably think you are"

"And I say that as a reader, not an editor."


In my past speaking engagements--but as a Young Entrepreneur or as online seller(!!!), I LOVE to share my experiences. Sometimes, I speak too much of details, hoping people will be inspired. I am afraid I might bore people tomorrow, so I guess I have to make my "speech" 50/50: half stories, half tips. Or if possible, 1/4 stories, 3/4s tips! =D


The past days when I go to bed and do that "thinking-things-through-before-sleeping" thing, I actually tried to recall the speakers who talked too much of themselves, did it interest me as a viewer? What speeches or seminars made my mind roam somewhere else because the topic is interesting, the speaker is not? Also, of course, I recalled the best lectures or the talks I had been to..those that made the mark right here ---> <3. Haha!

But anyway, isn't it that blogging is all about sharing (and sometimes, over-sharing!) ones own life and stories? ;p That's why I find blogs interesting, when I get to know others based on what they post! :) Maybe this is an exception! :-) I am so nervous (yet excited too!) for tomorrow, hope I wouldn't bore people to-death for an hour! Any tips of what I should tackle??? :-) 


PS: I love the poster they made for this! :) Thanks Megann! It's super creative!
PPS: Thanks again Megann, it makes me feel that I'm a certified Blogger (with the capital B! hah!) when I was invited to talk about blogging! Wow! Hehe! ;p
