My only question after all the event was: how could you guys (the admins) be so kind??
Seriously, but the event was so good and the fact that it was for free is somehow very generous for me. Jazakallohu khoiron katsiro…
I was happy to meet some of the members, since I’ve visited their blogs before and the new others. It was nice talking, joking, and learning at the same time.
The event was opened by Mas Dani as the MC, a little story about BEC from Mbak Nita, Mbak Deva as Moderator, and Mas Ryan give some explanation for the meaning of our new logo. Unfortunately, Mas Andik couldn’t join this as another admins.
The speakers are great, too! Mbak Ollie as the 1st speaker from www.salsabeela.com and the founder of Nulis Buku shared her experience in blogging in English, the advantages, some tips, wise words, couragement to write confidently, and many more. I talked to her just a moment before the session began, and I just need more. I thought that I could talk to her afterwards, but I found it was left undone. I guess she had another schedule to catch. Well, hope to see her again sometimes in the other occasions.
I took some notes during the session and my two favourite quotes by Mbak Ollie is:
“Make an Effort to get knowledges and there are no such a perfect time to write.” -by Ollie Salsabeela
Quite a slap for me who always make “I got no time to write” as a reason. haha
There was a game between the sessions, and the winners are Mbak Etty and Mbak Lia 😀 The game was listening to each other’s stories and jot it down. Three participants read them loud and picked the best of them.
The 2nd speaker was Mas Wawan from Dokter WP. He was a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and the session was about the two sides of online business. He shared the necessity to protect our website and explaining some kinds of hackers, a really brand new thing for my gaptek mind for sure. LOL 😀
A little bit to the end of this event, the admins announce the winner of BEC’S Giveaway for making a new logo. I believe the admins will post about this, so If you wonder how the new logo is, just check the page often 😉 Oya, the winner is Mas Erianto Ongko. There was also the announcement of BEC’S Member of The Month, which comes to our proud is Mbak Utie! Congratulatiooonnss! 🍸 *bigapplause*
Overall, this really went well. Needless to say that he admins really looked nervous. It was very obvious guys, by the way… Jangan kapok ya Admins, puhleeaasee…. 🐻
