My Nuffnang Story (Pics from 2007! *gasp*)

My Nuffnang Story

Blogging, is a huge part of my life. A lot of my closer friends are bloggers themselves and I really love hanging out with them because I never have to feel shy about whipping out my camera at the dinner table, or taking pictures of ourselves 15 times in a row.

I've been blogging for 5 years already and I have to say that if I were to give up blogging now, there would be a huge empty patch in my heart. I enjoy new experiences and sharing my thoughts and personal life. I love blogging and having an audience.

Here, I share my journey with Nuffnang (who managed me & my blog) and how they played a part in my blogging career. The list below is only some that I managed to find!! Still got lots more not included!

- Joined Nuffnang
At that time, advertising and banner ads was not very common among blogs in Singapore. Then, along came Nuffnang which changed the blogosphere in Singapore.

- First event with Nuffnang
I vividly remember this day. Isaac took part in Nuffnang's National Day movie giveaway and brought me along together with Benjamin!

At that point in time, I have not met most of the bloggers I know today, such as Nadia, Winnie, Peggy, Jayden, etc etc. I didn't talk to them at all that day, but I blogged about it haha. You know how I got to know Jayden? I read his blog a few times way before I became a blogger myself but I did not tell him that. During the event, he asked for a picture and eventually we hung out together with Isaac and I invited him to our joint birthday party and afterwards was history. Haha.

Look at my face. In the past, this kind of face also can attract plenty of readers. Now? Wait long long lor, so many pretty bloggers to compete against. Sigh! Lucky I started out early!!!

From this day, I attended countless movie premieres by invitation from Nuffnang. Great isn't it? ^_^
