“Eh, I know you, you are OMY blogger right?”
“Hi, Modgam right? I know, you are under OMY blogger.”
I have been asked so many times that I have decided to blog about it. Hahaa I guess I have OMY.sg to thank because so many bloggers recognise me thinking I am their blogger. Infact more people remember me as OMY.sg blogger than when I guest blog at My Fat Pocket. I am not under OMY.sg but am very very thankful to them in so many ways:
1. My very first blogging event was with OMY.sg at Singapore Flyer for Domino’s new app launch. It was also at this very first event that I met my first few blogging friends. I still remember the excitement I had and how nervous I was being there alone.
2. The opportunities I get from them even when I was new to the blogging world. If you are new and would like to attend events and know more fellow bloggers, this is a good blogging community to start. I am forever thankful they are willing to give us newbies a go and everyone gets a chance to attend the different events they offer.
3. It is through OMY.sg that I got to know many other overseas bloggers and work with big brands I never imagine possible; Kose, Canon, St Classifieds, Hitachi Hadacrie and more. I am also extremely thankful because it is also at Singapore Blog Awards 2012 that I was discovered by Crowd PR agency. It opened up to bigger brands and a lot more opportunities for me! (how not to be grateful to OMY.sg right??)
Everyone associates me with fashion cos I guess my dressing and style is louder? I know I just need to show it through pictures but how to get someone to snap ootd for you everyday when you have to work? I am not the skinny M size lady where any angle goes. I also blog about food and fun places so why not associate lifestyle or have a quirky blog award? Hahaa
Since the first year (2012) even when Modgam.com was still relatively new, I was already nominated for a few categories. Last year, Modgam.com was again nominated by readers and fellow bloggers and although I didn’t win, I felt blessed in a lot of ways. Many sent smses and emails and were surprised I didn’t make it into top 10. This to me means more than any awards for the recognition and support I get from so many of you already tells me I am a winner!
Modgam.com started just like most blogs through writing our thoughts and what we love. Since June 2012, I participated in OMY.sg and hasn’t looked back. Heheee Though this isn’t an award winning blog, I feel very very blessed and thankful in so many ways. Readers recognising me, emailing and dropping comments of encouragements, made so many awesome blogger friends, working with so many big brands and PR agencies and have fabulous sponsorships… what more can I ask for? Grateful… very grateful. I love writing and not for fame or freebies.
THANK YOU OMY.sg, my sponsors, PR agencies, fellow bloggers, readers and friends for the constant love and support. Thank you for believing in me and willing to take that chance with Modgam… keep the invites coming.
