I heard of this event from a friend sometime last week and thought of registering even though there’s no guarantee that I’ll be granted a slot. At the time, it was strictly implied that it is an invite-only event and somewhere along the way, the word “influential” is there.
Here’s the thing: I don’t think I am influential, and certainly my blog doesn’t even rank that high or known to most people. I just post photos of events I go to.. but I still tried. And I was surprised to find out upon viewing this list that I made the (first?) cut!
