***Post might contain some lines, expressions, feelings, comments which you may not like, but remember it’s just a blogger’s opinion :), no offense intended
Let me start post by congratulating CIO Pakistan, Google Pakistan for arranging the 1st Annual Pakistan Blog Awards and then heartiest congratulation to all the winners 🙂
It all started when bloggers appealed to get recognizable around the world, get award for their blog, to showcase their blogs. Then CIO Pakistan and Google Pakistan started their engines and gave us www.blogawards.pk, some bloggers nominated themselves, some got nominated by their fans and after 5 to 6 months, awards were being announced!
On 28th May 2010, bloggers were invited to Regent Plaza, Karachi for the award ceremony and new media unconference. Heading towards Regent I knew am not going to win but yet I was very excited for my friends, I had a feeling that award ceremony would be classy, one of its kind.
Ceremony started a bit late with a welcome song by Salman and Yasir, after the wonderful performance there was first session of unconference on Innovation in Media then some awards then second session on Selling 3.0 then some awards and then third session on Engage & Converge and then some awards, the bloggers were handed awesome goodies bag by CIO Pakistan and Google Pakistan, which contains our traditional Ajrak, notepad, key chain etc. Oh did I tell you about the theme :)? It was Ajrak!!, liked it.
There were some drawbacks which I felt, not necessary that you all agree on them too 🙂
Once again Congratulation to CIO Pakistan, Google Pakistan and all the winners!
