Happy Social Media Day To Us!

June 30th of every year marks Social Media Day all around the world..And on that occasion, we got to celebrate it for the first time here in Kuwait too! Thanks to our bloggers, his&hers, Q8Stig, and Omarker, who came up with the idea of gathering the Kuwaiti blogs together..An event by bloggers for bloggers πŸ˜€

It took place at Al-Corniche Club; I arrived with FroYo Nation &; Moody..As soon as we walked in, ‘His’ handed us our name tags..Each blogger had one printed out with their name..Cute πŸ™‚

We got seated by the time Q8Stig was announcing his real identity for the first time πŸ˜€ and talking about the event in a sort of introduction..throughout the event, the presentation was divided between his, Q8Stig, and Omarker..We also got to hear from Saud Al Khateib, a graphic designer, among many other things, who showed us a bit of his work, and spoke to us about Reddit, a social media/news website that has been taking the world by storm.

It was nice seeing all the bloggers..Listening to their views, tips, and the challenges they face..Too bad for me, I had to leave before the end of the event due to a prior engagement..I missed the last part 😦 The bloggers’ pledge!! But you can see it all on 7aji dude’s great event coverage posts, here, and here.

And since i missed writing my pledge on the ‘I pledge’ wall..My second best option would be to write it here..So here goes, I pledge to be objective, reflect my own thoughts, and be honest..always be active, and support this ‘union’ at all times πŸ˜€

In the end, I’d like to thank his&hers, Q8Stig, and Omarker for putting together this event, and giving us the opportunity to be part of a great initiative..loved it!! Loved the ideas and the spirit..Thank you so much, and I’m definitely looking forward for upcoming gatherings πŸ˜€
