Correct. The same blog awards I won last year and also said that i do not want to be joining anymore. But I did again. I lied about not joining like how Jordan "lied" about retiring.
I think this is the problem about doing things you like. You just want to keep doing it until you cannot do it anymore. As much as I've mentioned that the sphere and business has been changing and irritating me, but the core of sharing and writing will never die for me.
As for getting all competitive, that is also me. It is almost like a report card for me saying "okay, this is how well or poor I've been doing for the last year.". Not just about readership, sponsorship or getting famous but this is something I enjoy as a whole. Also, the truth is that you don't get into finals that easily either. #LinkedinHaolian
And since the launch of the voting phrase, there have been many questions. So here I am attempting to do a FAQ for you guys.
How do I vote?
Very simple. Fall onto the page. Click VOTE NOW! URL HERE:
This is just a contest why need so much details.
There is this thing call the sponsorship package for example like SBA 2015 the title sponsor is Panasonic and how do a sales person convince Panasonic to whip out thousands of dollars to support an event? Tell them it can reach people but who are we reaching? People from age 25 - 35, how many % male how many % female, how many % locals, Malaysian, Indonesian, how many people, how many clicks and how many eye balls on this event and what other earned media value on the newspapers report etc. All these are facts that potential clients need in order to convince their boss to pay and yes, stats. That's what sales people need these days to justify any company spending.
Don't worry, they ain't gonna kidnap you or your son.
Which Category are you in ah?
|Fashion blogger of course.|
Wah. Why so complicated one. How come must have two types. So 1 winner can win both voted and judges choice?
Correct! So last time blog awards gives you X% vote plus X% content so many people complain actually their content very good but nobody vote and also lazy to get vote or do campaigning of votes that's why they lost. But this year's voting and judges points are being separated into two different awards. Can't complain anymore ya? Hard truth is on its way. Never win means bad content and not popular. LOL. Jeng Jeng Jeng.
Okay, I am in. How come I cannot vote just 1 must vote 10 ah?
|Because 10 is really better than 1|
This Blogawards thing still in meh? Like not very cool liao mah why you still wanna join.
I think we do not have right to say things like this. I think the award itself is a collective prestige of who joined and who is in this year. The award is just as cool as the people being part of it and if you have joined but didn't win or get selected and decide to diss it as something lame. I have nothing for you here.
And also because it still directs a decent among of traffic to my blog. It IS a tangible perks
How come I don't see some of my favorite bloggers in this award anymore? Like where is Amos Yee?
I am not too sure about most but I have heard some winners that refused to join again because if you never join and not win, you are undefeated. Also because some has stop blogging, some didn't made it pass the finalist stage, DanielFoodDiary got too popular and is one of the judges instead. As for Amos, I am not too sure if he can attend the event.
So this is your 4th year straight being a finalist. No other contestant meh?
heh. You create a blog and try to join 4 years and be 4 years running finalist lor. Then we talk okay? #YouAskLJQuestionIGiveLJAnswer #SorryNotSorry
So you confident you can win? Since you win before it should be easier.
|NBA Nerd jokes. You guys might not get it.|
Top 10 most popular blog leh?
Even harder. 90 people and only 10 winners. I mean unless you help me vote lah!
If you win, what is in for me?
