Why I am Attending @BloggingGhana’s #BlogCamp13!

Ghana’s biggest network of Bloggers and Social Media enthusiasts, once more brings to you #BlogCamp13. The social media event and awards day looks promising and rewarding indeed! I was part of #blogcamp12 themed “Voice of a New Generation”.

BloGHa

Blogging Ghana since June 2011, has been a non-profit organization with an executive council working towards the following objectives:

  • Serving as a forum for bloggers in Ghana to network and exchange ideas
  • Building capacity among bloggers in Ghana
  • Accessing new audiences for our blogs through a mutual website (aggregator) and other activities
  • Promoting citizen journalism in Ghana
  • Educating the general public in Ghana on the opportunities of social media

               It’s now time to focus on QUALITY content- yup! This years’ BlogCamp is themed “Content is King”, I met dozens of my followers offline and gained even more at the event last year, also enjoyed sessions led by seasoned sports Journo and tweet freak Gary Al-Smith , Ameyaw Debrah (seasoned Celebrity blogger/ publicist/social media marketer), Nana Yaw Asiedu (Lawyer & Blogger), Nii Aryertey Aryeh (seasoned Citizen Journo & GhanaDecides Team member), Nana Yaw Sarpong (Best Citizen Journalism Blog Nominee, Producer of Writers Project on Citi FM.). I upgraded my knowledge on the use of platforms I have mastered- Blogger, WordPress, Twitter, facebook, Storify, how to grow followers and fans etc. It wasn’t all about getting? I gave back too- assisted many to start a blog and was consulted by other wanna-be-bloggers on how to run the platforms.

I had fun serving on #VimSquad captained by Gameli Adzaho to mobilize wanna-be-bloggers and social media enthusiasts for the event, the session with #TeamKeteke on G.I.J campus was splendid. Many of the attendees swept goodies home.. shirts, android handsets, and loads more! I look forward to winning a BB from Tigo and BloggingGhana at this years event! I look forward to learning some more, live-tweeting, eating the sumptuous BlogCamp chow – Oh yeah! Taking home my Tigo BlackBerry award. I will be honoured to meet you… “always a pleasure- forget peer pressure…lols!”  Follow me on twitter @ghanabakwamena!
