My Nuffnang Story
Once upon a time, there is an introvert, slightly shy-ish girl with a Friendster account when one day she decided to try out the blog function. Little that she knew, it was the first step to a wonderful world called ‘Blogosphere’.
After setting up her first domain on September 2007, while surfing the Internet, she stumbled-upon Nuffnang and joined the community in November 2007.
Those were the days that this introvert, slightly shy-ish girl began to experience the new ways to meet new people over the Internet. She began discovering fellow Nuffnangers through Innit, Nuffnang’s very own blog aggregator.
Then she was given a chance to meet those people she have been chatting online in real life for the first time by attending Nuffnang’s first sharing session at Italiannies, One Utama in August 2008. Oh boy… Oh boy, she was so nervous and excited at the same time that she was the first person to arrive at the venue.
Bit by bit, slowly but surely, this introvert, slightly shy-ish girl is making new friends and getting acquainted with fellow Nuffnangers. Those were the days we even have our own groupies or gang such as the ‘Innit Syok Sendiri‘ gang. LOL!
You guys know how much Nuffnangers love watching movies right? It is kinda disheartening that most movie screenings took place in Klang Valley area. Somehow the fellow Nuffies heard our cries and they managed to bring Mamma Mia! movie screening to Gurney Plaza, Penang in September 2008 and that was where the introvert, slightly shy-ish girl attended her very first Nuffnang’s movie screening.
By this time around, most of you would know that fellow Nuffnangers are quite the party animal. In November 2008, the introvert, slightly shy-ish girl attended her first party ever (literally) at Borneo Baruk Club, KL. The epic Nuffnang Nokia Silent Halloween yo!
On April 2009, no longer a ‘party virgin’, she attended Nuffnang Music Bash party at Maison, KL rocking out as Salomie.
Again, another first for this introvert, slightly shy-ish girl where she was invited to a Berbuka Puasa session with Nuffnang at The Apartment, Suria KLCC in September 2009.
The most tiring month for her was in January 2010 where she attended both Samsung Color Me Corby Carnival at Sunway Lagoon and Digi Internet Pimp My Day Challenge at Mardi Gras, One Utama.
This introvert, slightly shy-ish girl was given one of the most memorable birthday gift in May 2010 where Nuffnang invited her to a coffee session with fellow Nuffies and Nuffnangers. Finally, she managed to see with her very own eyes how Nuffnang office looks like. Sooo ‘orenji’!
While other Nuffnangers had their share of winning cash, gadgets and other stuffs from Nuffnang, this introvert, slightly shy-ish girl thought that (and still is) winning the invites to Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2009 in Singapore was the best prize she could ever won since she set foot in the ‘Blogosphere’ world.
Visiting new places
Getting to know people
Being part of a community
Come 16 December 2011, 500 bloggers from around the Asia-Pacific region will flock to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for the Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011 in Putrajaya Marriott. The Awards aims to not only honour the region’s best bloggers, but also to bring together blogger communities from across Asia-Pacific. The Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards is brought to you by Volkswagen Malaysia and Putrajaya Marriott.
It is not about the money or the exposure that came with being a Nuffnanger.
Meeting all the wonderful people is one of the best things that Nuffnang could give to this introvert, slightly shy-ish girl.
