Attending my first WordCamp was a great experience. I had a blast. If you have observed, this photo wasn’t attached to my previous post about the WordCamp Philippines’ event highlights. I intentionally did that so I can showcase this photo on one post.
I didn’t have any photos about the event that I can consider mine. It so happen that my digital camera wasn’t fully charged when I went to the event. It was awfully mess of me not to make sure it was okay before going. I charged the battery for just 4 hours but that wasn’t enough.
When I came home, I tried to use my sister’s batteries for her digital camera and it worked. Now, it’s telling me to purchase new ones since mine are already pieces of junk.
Going to an event like this needs some preparation too. If you’re planning to join one, better bring with you some business cards because you’ll never know who you could bump into otherwise they might just forget you after the event even if you email them.
Have the guts to start a conversation. Whether you like it or not, that’s what you are there for—to make new acquaintances and meet the right people. I’ve been a laidback like I used to so I didn’t get to know more people than I should. Another lesson learned.
Anyway, those are just my two cents. Do yourself a favor and stop being me! (At least in these situations)
