Eesti Blogiauhinnad 2018


Hello!
Nagu enamus blogihuvilistele teada, siis laupäeval toimus järjekordne Eesti Blogiauhindade jagamine, mis seekord leidis aset Vabal Laval. Kuigi võistlusest võtsin osa juba kolmandat aastat järjest, siis tänu erinevatele põhjustele jõudsin üritusele alles esimest korda. Kui minult sama päeva õhtul küsiti, et kuidas üritus siis ka oli, siis olid mul küllaltki neutraalsed suhted- ei olnud see meeliülendav kogemus, aga ega midagi katastroofiliselt halba ka ei olnud (kui välja arvata ühe neiu väga kohatu kommentaar). 

Mulle väga meeldis toimumispaik, selle kaunistused ja mõnus vibe. Siiski olid mõned pisikesed detailid, mis mulle ei meeldinud. Näiteks olin ma veidi skeptiline töötubades olnud kott-toolide suhtes, sest ma ise olin üleni valges, suhteliselt kergesti kortsuvates pükstes ning kontsadega, seega mitte just kõige õigem riietus kott-toolis istumiseks, samuti kujutan ette, kui ebameeldiv on seal ka kleidi/ seelikuga istuda, kuid kuna ma sellistest asjades ennast tavaliselt heidutada ei lase, siis istusin ka mina terve töötoa aja just kott-toolis. Ühest küljest tekitasid kott-toolid küll mõnusat keskkonda, kuid kuna minu meelest on tegemist siiski viisakapoolsema üritusega, siis mugavuse mõttes ei olnud see parim lahendus. Küll aga meeldis mulle armas söögilaud ja photoboothi olemasolu, nüüd on mul lausa külmkapi peal tore mälestus möödunud õhtust! 

Töötoad- valida oli Samsungi/Siiri Kumari ning Promoty/Merili Mäe töötoa vahel. Kuna tundsin (ja tunnen siiani) et mul oleks vaja rohkem teadmisi sotsiaalmeedia haldamisest, siis seekord valisin Promoty toa, kuigi oleks väga tahtnud ka Siiri õpetussõnu kuulda! Kahjuks pidin jälle natuke pettuma, sest ma justkui teadsin enamus põhitõdesid ja need ei viinud mind sellest praegusest surnust ringist edasi, siiski ootan huviga Promoty uusi koolitusi! 

Üllataval kombel kohal suhteliselt vähe tuttavaid nägusid, ma eeldasin, et suured näod sinna arvatavasti ei tulegi, aga ma lootsin näiteks enda kategooriast rohkem inimesi näha. Siiski oli rahvast päris palju, kui paljud neist aga tegelikult blogijad olid, seda on raske öelda.  

Autasustamisel meeldis mulle väga kuidas nominete ette kanti, siiski oleks minu meelest olnud armas kui kui ülejäänud esikolmik (peale võitja) oleks samal õhtul selgunud ja nad oleks näiteks tänukirja saanud. Saan aru, et selline asi teeb üritust kõvasti pikemaks, aga millegipärast jäi see mind ikkagi painama. Minu meelest oleks võinud ka juba praegusel jagamisel paus sees olla, sest tundsin kuidas peale pooli kategooriaid oli rahvas kuidagi rahutu ja ma ise olin samuti väsinud. Kuigi alguses öeldi, et tegu on vaba õhkkonnaga ja võib vahepeal kohalt ära minna, siis tegelikkuses olid enamus inimesed siiski paigal sest 1) kes see viitsib hakata pimedas kuskil komberdama ja 2) mina oleks ennast lihtsalt ebamugavalt tundund kui kuidagi kesest auhindade üleandimist püsti tõusen, pealegi tahtsin ma näha kõiki, kes auhinna said, seega oleks väike paus mõnus olnud ja nii saab ka tulevikus esikolmikule ikkagi asjad kätte anda. Kahjuks ei meeldinud mulle Anu Saagim õhtujuhina, alguses oli nagu päris tore, aga lõpuks tundsin, kuidas üritati draamat üles kiskuda ja see tekitas lihtsalt ebameeldivust, samuti see, kuidas kohati poldud võitjate blogidega üldse kursis ja lahmiti lihtsalt suvalisi küsimusi, see-eest võitjate intervjueerimine oli jälle hea mõte, lihtsalt võiks teha seda mõni soojem ja blogidega rohkem kursis olev inimene. Lisaks meeldis mulle mõte anda tulevikus eriauhindasid, mis paneks võib-olla märkama rohkem ka väiksemaid blogijaid, ka nemad vajavad tunnustust! 

Tegelikult ei plaaninud ma üldse nii negatiivset postitust teha, mul on väga hea meel, et selline üritus toimub, sest mulle tundub, et see annab ka blogijatele oma hobis/töös särtsu juurde. Samuti olles korraldanud ise erinevaid üritusi tean täpselt kui raske on seda kõike teha, seega suur kiitus korraldajatele, sest tegelikult tuli üritus ju päris hästi välja!

Ja muidugi suur suur suur aitäh kõigile, kes minu poolt hääletasin, sain sellel aastal ilu- ja moeblogide kategooriast 23 osaleja seast 7. koha ja ma olen ääretult õnnelik selle üle, sest eesmärk oli pääseda TOP 10-sse!!! Kui teistes kategooriates ei võtnud päris paljud suured blogijad osa, siis minu omas olid enamus vanad olijad esindatud, seega on mul väga hea meel nende tublide blogijate kõrval olla. Eks muidugi on kõik ka promomises kinni ja lõppude lõpuks on need lihtsalt numbrid, kuid sellegipoolest oli see armas üllatus!
Suured kallid teile!
Cheers!

Hello!
On last Saturday there was a finally Estonian Bloggers Awards. Although it was already my third year to be in the competition then at this year I finally had time to go to event! When people asks from me how was it, then I must say that my answer was quite neutral- it wasn't mind blowing, but it was bad too (expect one young woman super bad comment middle of the interview). 

I really liked where it took place (Vaba Lava), I liked decoration and the vibe. But there was some little details, which I din't like. For example I was a bit skeptical about the beanbags, which we had in workshops, like I was dressed in white and I had heels, so you can imagine how I wasn't thrilled about idea to sit there, I also imagine how uncomfortable it was to sit there with a dress, but as I usually don't let to ruin my mood with this kind of little problems, then I sat the whole workshop time in beanbag. In one hand they made the general vibe nicer, but on other hand I expect that these kind of events are fancy, so in my opinion it wasn't very good solution. But I really liked the food and photo booth, now I have a lovely photo on my fridge about that night! 

Workshops- there was two of them: one with Samsung and Siiri Kumari (photographer) who talked how to make photos and the other one with Promoty and Merili Mäe (influencer) who talked how to grow your account on Instagram. As I felt that I need to know more about social media, then I chose Promoty workshop, although I would love the heard Siiri tips, too! Sadly I was a bit disappointed because I kind of new all those things and it didn't help to deal with my struggle, still I hope that maybe I can attend in some more specific workshops! 

I was also surprised how few people I knew, as in this year a lot of big bloggers didn't participate, then I was pretty sure that they will not come, but I still hoped to see more bloggers from my category. Despite of that there was still quite many people, I just don't know how many of them were bloggers. 

In the award ceremony I liked how they revealed nominates, but I didn't like that they said out only first place, I wanted to know rest of TOP 3, too! Also I liked that in previous years they gave diplomas to 2nd and 3rd place, but at this year they gave nothing to them. I understand that this kind of thing makes the event more longer, but I still felt sad that they did so. Also in my opinion there should be a break middle of the ceremony, because it was pretty annoying in the end to sit there. I know, they said, it's okay to move around, even middle of the ceremony, but well, let's be honest, no-one wants to stand up and just to walk away middle of the show and for example I wanted to see all the winners. These kind of pauses could also make possible to give the diplomas to rest of the TOP 3 people, too! I must say I didn't like the host of the night, you see, she is a famous and glamorous journalist, who kind of likes drama, so in the beginning everything was okay, but in the end I felt how she tried to do more and more drama and for me it was just unpleasant. I also didn't like that she had no idea about some bloggers who won and just asked some random questions from them, but I liked that interview idea, I just hope that at next time there will be a host, who is much more warmer and knows about bloggers. I also like idea to give some special prizes, because then also a smaller bloggers has a chance to win something. 

Actually I didn't want to be so negative, because I am really glad, that there is a event like this, I feel it makes bloggers more closer and give us some energy. As I have made events by my-self then I know how hard it is, so a big applause to organizers, because in the end everything went well! 

And of course a big big big thank you to all of you, who gave me a vote, at this year I got in Beauty and Fashion Bloggers category from 23 people 7th place and I am just so happy about it, my goal was to be in TOP 10! When in this year a lot of big bloggers decided to not participate then in my category there was still a lot of good and big bloggers, so it is a big compliment to be next of them. I know that it is all about promotion and in the end they are just numbers, but it was still a lovely surprise!
A big hugs to you!
Cheers!
