Event Report - Bali Blogger 1st Gathering


Hello beauties!
After a long hiatus, of my blogging free and no-time student life, I am finally back on the blog <3
Bringing you a new exciting experience from my last gathering just about a week ago with the Bali beauty bloggers.

If you have been following me since 2014 you would probably remember some of my Bali blogger friends from Utama Spice , Funny Pancake or Bali Zoo. But the good news is, it's not just 10 of us anymore, now we have got 24 official members. YAY!

Today I will properly introduce who Bali Beauty Bloggers are, so we are a community based in Bali consisting of girls who blogs and are passionate about make up, fashion, or even travelling. 

Although some of us (just like myself) studies abroad or outside Bali, so not everybody was able to make it to the gathering, BBB always feels like home to bloggers originated from Bali. It has been a fun journey watching how this community grow and this first gathering could not express it in anyway better. This event was created from us and for us. Most of our members contributed a lot to this event and put so much effort into it.

Unfortunately, I got into a really bad traffic jam and I was super late to the gathering. But I still didn't miss the best part of the event, which is meeting other bloggers and getting to know them better. Especially for the new ones that I have never met before.

Despite not being able to follow the whole rundown of the event and take lots of picture, other bloggers were so humble to share their pictures and let me use them. So here's the big line of what happened in Bali Beauty Blogger 1st ever gathering!

The event took place at Goemerot Restaurant, Renon, Denpasar on the 23rd December 2016. At the beginning of the gathering we voted for the new committee of BBB. After that, while waiting for out food, 3 of our members had the opportunity to share the tips and tricks in the blogging business.

The first one was Ita Chen, not only a fashion and beauty blogger, Ita is a Clozette ambassador and content writer at Whatwelike. She shared about how to bring out your originality and the need to follow the lastest trends as a content writer.

The next one is Jessica Ie. Jessica shared about how to earn money and the business perspective of blogging. Jessica is a blogger well known in social media, not only she has a lot of followers on Instagram, she also has received many sponsorship, paid promotes and endorsements. One of the tips that she mentioned was changing your normal Instagram to business account so that we know the traffic and demography of our account to know who most of our readers are and make sure that our next post is interesting to our loyal readers.

The last one is Hatta Shani. One of BBB member who just got into youtubing. She shared about how to earn money and get followers in youtube. She mentioned one of the key beside being well equipped is consistency in posting, e.g. a new post every Thursday. Back sound and background also turns out to matter more than what we think.

We had chicken wings for dinner.

Continued with Christmas gift exchange, quiz and photo session, we also had a doorprize of treatment from Olivia Skincare which I unexpectedly won!! There were 3 package and I won one of them! So happy and I can't wait to give it a try :) I got a voucher of the radio frequency treatment which I will explain more next time!

Thank for everyone who contributed to this event, to all sponsors and Bali Beauty Blogger members for their time and hard work in the preparation of the event. Sorry I could not help much because I was far away in Perth :(
