Heard from the grapevine that a growing number of media people no longer wants to join presscons if they know that bloggers would be there, as well. The reality is media people still don't treat bloggers in the same level. In a way, I kinda get that.
You know, bloggers also don't like being treated like second-class citizens. I know some bloggers who have a false sense of grandeur but most bloggers I've met don't think of themselves as celebrities. To them, they are just people who want to express their thoughts. And it sucks if they are treated like a nobody.
Dear media people, most bloggers also don't want to join press conferences. Get off your high horse, guys. Whether you like it or not, bloggers are here to stay.
