Top Contributor meetup - Mountain View

I had a chance to swing by during the +Google Top Contributor Program local meetup last week in Mountain View. I didn't end up going this year, since it would be unwise for me to take more vacation days. But I got the permission to crash their evening sessions to meet some of the attendees and Community Managers.

Pictured below are the Google+ Top Contributors for the English community. I've meet most of them last year during the global summit, but it was really great to see them again in person :)

I have to be honest, my involvement in the Top Contributor program has decreased a bit this year, but I still do enjoy participating in the forums. I'm no longer a Top Contributor for the Indonesian help forums, but I'm still a Top Contributor for G+ and Allo global community and forum.

Recently, I've been unofficially mentoring someone in one of the help forums, and it's been a really fun experience. I would help her how to effectively answer questions in the forum, and once in a while she would excitedly ping me on Hangouts when she got 'Best answers' for her answers. It always brings a huge smile to my face whenever that happens :D

Recently she just got promoted to Rising Star and on her way to be a Top Contributor! I couldn't have been more proud!

In any case, it's been about two years since I've become a Top Contributor (2.5 years since I started) and it's been an amazing journey. My involvement might have decreased recently, but I have no intention of stopping anytime soon.

For those interested in the program always feel free to ping me, or you can check out from the following website:
