June 3rd is getting nearer.
There are 2 reasons I’m looking forward to this date.
- WWDC. That means new iOS, macOS, watchOS, everything.
- But most importantly, the selected attendees of the Google Local Guides Summit will be announced. I’m pretty sure I have not been selected, but it’s still exciting to look forward to.
I think I should prepare myself a little for the fact that I would not be selected. I’m sure it won’t affect me a lot. I won’t feel upset or anything, because I know very well that I don’t deserve it, but it’s still good to have some self talk.
Firstly, even though I’m a Level 8 Local Guide, my contributions to Maps are very minimal. A bulk of what I do is making minor edits. To be a better contributor, I think I should write more reviews, and upload more photos. And to do that, I have to visit more places. I’m not keen on visiting a lot of places, so that’s a little difficult.
Secondly, I’m not active in the community. I don’t attend a lot of meetups, and even on the Local Guides Connect platform I rarely engage with people. I hardly ever post anything there.
Thirdly, I’m not proactive. I haven’t organized any meetups here, and probably never will.
So, apart from the 30K points I have accumulated over the years, I don’t have a very good profile. If I ever want to go, I will have to try a lot harder.
