back to business

Hi there,
it's been a while since my last entry on this blog, about 9 months and 6 days ago :)
and now i decide to write again,,, though not easy to find words to be written *it spend 1 hour to write this 2 line*. I've been thinking to share any interesting and useful information on this blog especially corcerning about fashion. I hope i can keep my self from writing my "personal story of the day" a.k.a 'curhat' which will be full of anger and sadness, coz i doubt it will give any useful information for you guys :-P .

Speaking about blogging, i attended an event held by Fimela at Grand Indonesia on July last year. It called  Empowering Women Through Blogging, which has purpose to enhance the ability of networking and entrepreneurship through blogging. They invited Ninit, Ollie and Duo - Fifi Alvianto & Hanna Faridl as speakers. For you who haven't know names I mentioned, let me tell you brief info about them.

Ninit is the writer of Si Jago Merah, Get Married, Chocoluv, Kok Putusin Gue??, Mendadak Dangdut, Heart and Test Pack. Four of her books made into movies. She is also one of the founders of the urban mama. Ollie writes 20 books. The person behind kutukutubuku, startuplokal, a web consultant, and as far as we can say she is a true online entrepreneur. She is the winner of Bubu Award for Tourism Blog Writing Competition by and the winner of New Wave Marketing Picture at Flickr hissed by MarkPlus. Fifi Alvianto & Hanna Faridl are the founders of hijab-scarft and casa-elana.
These four beautiful women are my favorite bloggers, I regulary read their blog when I first start do blog walking.

In this event, they share some tips to write a blog , such as :
1. start writing,  when u have willingness to write a blog then just start writing. In the beginning you might post something ... let say.... too much casual writing, too personal writing, or just a random thought of you, but as you get more experience in writing blog, you will develop your ability on writing and sharing useful informations to the readers. Fyi, Ollie admited, on her first years blogging she couple times post something that too personel yet unimportant things. Sooo, dont hesitate to start writting even if it's just your random thought.
2. ask for a friend help, okey lets admit that less women are good at IT or any computer stuff. If you have any difficulties while making a blog or website, just ask for your friends favor. Then, voila ! problem solves
3. get inspired, read a lot, see further, hear more. Inspiration can come from everywhere. Don't be afraid, you won't run out idea
4. be expert on something, to get people attention to your blog or if you wanna get more advance by making money from blogging or running a website, you should be expert on something and get specialization. Show something unique from your blog or website so people will acknowledge you. For an instant, hijab-scarft is specialist on hijab fashion blog and they are expert on mix and match outfit for hijabers.

That's what I got from the event, pretty encourging to start blogging hah?
So, gurls.... lets blog and write !! *pocked Sita who also back to her blog today after couple month stop writing.

i got a book from Ninit for asking a question :)
