Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.

Popping My SMB Cherry


After missing out on the first two Social Media Breakfast events, I was determined not to miss out on the third one even though I was still coughing badly. Besides, SMB3 was held at the Asian Civilisations Museum. How could I say no?

When I got to the venue, there were already a number of people mingling and getting to know each other. I saw some familiar faces like Nicole, DK, Claudia and the guys from Tech65; Daniel, NTT, Jerrick and Farinelli. There were more than few new faces too. I got to meet wonderful new people like Yuhui, Cullen and Ssumin. It was also nice to finally put a face to the people I’ve been Plurking with; Clauds and sm7catscan.

The agenda for the day was Blogger Outreach. I’m sure we were supposed to discuss how a company would and should go about doing that, I think that by bring all the bloggers, ad and PR companies together in an event such as this, is the first step. The next step is up to the companies I guess. Pat Law wrote an awesome post on how to pitch to the bloggers.

Overall, I thought it was an interesting experience. Some of the discussions went over my head but then, I’m not in the marketing/business line, so I wouldn’t really understand. I had a good time though, meeting new people and going to the museum. Too bad, by end of the event, I was breathless and weak from the coughing that I couldn’t go around the museum to look at the exhibits. Kudos to Daryl for organising the event. I hope I get to attend the next SMB.

  5. Hi Krill! Faithful lurker, rare commenter here.Social Media is the industry I work in, so I have a lot of resources to share (and sharing is the point, right?). So I’m definitely gonna pick up Pat Law’s feed.There’s a code of ethics actually outlined for us here in the states. You can see that here:http://womma.org/Good to know we’re on the side of the consumer and not the PR agency, right?
