Andressa @ Conference

*A personal overview

As many of you already know, I posted a series of interviews on the “Revolutia Blogurilor” website. It was part of my duties as a Kinecto trainee. I loved it! 🙂

I just came back from the Conference. I went as a Netopia guest, as Antonio Eram was kind enough to invite to me to the event.

I shared a cab with Bobby and surprinsingly made it on time. I arrived at 10 minutes to 11 and that gave me enough time to meet some other participants and make a few jokes before Jeremy started his presentation.

I wore a dress, which I seldom do, but I thought it’s the kind of event I bought my dresses for. See a picture with the dress here.
The Conference was a good opportunity to talk to bloggers I had already met before and meet some new ones as well: Deea, Radu, Manafu, Dragos N, Dragos D, Vladimir, Bobby, Ionut, Andreea, Antonio.

Jeremy is younger the some would expect knowing the things that he’s done: wrote a book, set up a successful business etc. He looks around thirty. I could tell he was a little nervous in the beginning, especially as this was the first time he was holding a conference to a foreign audience (Canadians don’t count! :)) but it got better on the way.

He talked about what a blog is, how to start a blog and gave tips on how to get more traffic. For a Blogger, with a capital B, that I am, those things weren’t new at all but Jeremy was funny and presented it in a nice manner.

The bloggers enjoyed some of the jokes more than others as we have out own subculture: links, spam, negative comments – it’s part of our universe! 🙂 Jeremy was very inspired to ask some bloggers to get on the stage at the end and give a piece of advice to those planning to start a corporate blog. Bobby, Deea and Ionut talked about networking, using tags, posting often – pretty cool stuff.

The participants got a bag with a T-shirt and a cap with the title of the event and a file, but it would have been a lot more useful to us to receive a pen and some paper as we had nothing to take notes on (everybody thought the organizers will provide the “tools”).

I look forward to the next of event of this kind. Even if it’s only for the chatting during the breaks (which by the way were very frequent!) as I loved talking to bloggers and people in the business of advertising, marketing and Public Relations.

Nice work Jeremy!

later edit: Bobby just announced that Jeremy will be his next guest on his show on Radio Lynx. Read more.

Also, read about the event on Metropotam, or what they wrote: Manafu, Radu, Filip

    Cristy, the hours spent blogging are all the proof I need. That’s what I meant – blogoholic.

    […] Evident m-am trezit ultimul sa scriu despre eveniment. Au scris inaintea mea Metropotam Madalin Andressa Ionut si altii (scuze daca v-am uitat). Desi majoritatea celor prezenti au fost dezamagiti de eveniment eu pot sa spun ca a fost exact cum ma asteptam. Mediu, cu multe chestii pentru incepatori, care insa nu au miscat audienta. Jumate din ei au plecat rapid. […]
