Mobilink Awards Female Blogger on International Women’s Day 2011
March 08th, 2011:- Celebrating the International Women’s Day with the aim to support active presence of Pakistani women in digital media, Mobilink ran a blogging contest which generated a lot of posts by females bloggers who participated in the online contest. Anam Ayyub, a student and an aspiring blogger from Lahore won the blogging contest that finally came to end today. When Mobilink team contacted Anam Ayyub earlier today, she was overjoyed and expressed; “I just can’t believe that I’ve been announced the winner and will now be handed over that cute girly Motorola flip-out cell phone. This is not only why I am really happy. It is also because after taking part in this blogging contest, I’ve been given appreciation from all around and being novice this is more than anything to me. I never knew I would be praised to this extent. Thanks to all who appreciated my blog-writing. This will ensure my long-lasting blog-writing-attitude. This would not have been possible , had Mobilink not come forward and get the label of being pioneer in organizing event in order to encourage females turn into bloggers. All praise goes to Mobilink and those who participated in this contest. I really hope Mobilink will continue to increase the frequency of such events in future also.” The blogging contest open to female bloggers only ran from Feb 25th to March 5th with the results announced today on International Women’s Day. Just recently, Mobilink organized the first ever ladies blogger meet-up in Lahore with the aim to promote and encourage young women to become constructively active in digital media especially the blogging arena. More than 40 females upcoming and regular bloggers attended the meet-up and found the session extremely informative and helpful in starting their own blogs as well as dealing with different issues faced by females on social media. This blogging contest was the extension of Mobilink’s aim to encourage and promote young women to actively take part in digital media and express their views and opinions on different issues in the blogging circle as well as to celebrate International Women’s day in a more fruitful way.
