blogrrr: Blogger Most Wanted 2013, the largest blogger gathering in Malaysia, is coming this Saturday, 14 December 2013. Organised by myNIC official Malaysian domain registrar, endorsed by Kementerian Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia (KKMM), the event is to appreciate and acknowledge influencers who have become the voice of Malaysia in the social space.
The unique gathering will be a platform to share knowledge and experience amongst the blogosphere and social media community through forums and mini seminars.
The Malaysia International Exhibition and Convention Centre (MIECC) @ MINES is the venue for the inaugural event and is expected to gather around 10,000 bloggers and visitors.
As part of the event’s activities, a total of 100 blog shops will be showcasing products and services at exhibition booths.
Also gracing the event will be celebrities Ally Iskandar, Iqram Dinzly, Marsha Milan and Sharifah Sakinah.
What is a blogger event without a form of recognition for Malaysian blogs and bloggers, right? The blogrrr Awards 2013 seeks to recognise the best blogs in Malaysia, judged by quality of content, influence and design. The award spans 11 categories, namely:
- Best Blogshop (for blog that sells online)

- Best Entertainment Blog
- Best Food & Travel Blog
- Best Sports Blog
- Best Fashion & Beauty Blog
- Best Family & Health Blog
- Best Personal Blog
- Best Automotive Blog
- Best of Disability Blog
Nominations for favourite blogs were open online for the past couple of months. I’ve been invited as a guest judge along with Aman Firdaus and Ikhwan Nazri of Amanz.my, Nisa Kay, Sean Razak of blogr.my, Selina Ooi of Selinawing.com and representatives of myNIC.
A highlight of the event is the official presence of Malaysia Book of Records to certify that the gathering is indeed the biggest blogger gathering in Malaysia. So bloggers, be part of history!
