All the expert bloggers advocate against writing apologies when you go for a long period without posting anything on your blog. So I’ll follow the experts’ advice and pick up where I left off, although I would like to post a few updates on what I’ve been up to:
In the past few months I have been really busy in both my personal and my professional life. Work related stuff included going to several web related events, some of which make sense only for those of you who are familiar with the Brazilian blogosphere. Back in May, though, I went to the Googleplex in São Paulo to attend the Google for Bloggers event, the first of its kind ever promoted by Google in Brazil. Here are some photos (more here):
(And here is the link to my article about the event for those of you who speak Portuguese.)
To put it shortly, this was a very positive first official contact between Google executives and brazilian bloggers. They all showed genuine interest in hearing what we had to say and expressed interest in promoting this type of event on a regular basis. All I can say is that I can’t wait for the next one.
While I’m on the subject, I’m attending the Google Search Masters on September 24th. I’m looking forward to meeting some of the people who will be speaking there, including Adam Lasnik, Pedro Dias, among others. If you’re attending too, make sure to leave a comment and I’ll see you there.
That’s all for now, folks. I will be posting more regularly from now on, though.
