Indiblogger’s Delhi Meet

Me and my life

I did write this post about 1.5 months ago but somehow it was stuck in my drafts and was never published.

Indiblogger organised a Delhi Blogger Meet in CR Park Delhi on 8th Sep 2008 which was a saturday. I signed up for the event at their website and was veryeagerly waiting for the moment as this was going to be my first blogging meet after dwelling in the blogging world for almost one year.

On the day, i landed up on the venue half an hour earlier ( as asked by Renie, one of the event organiser) to lend a helping hand. I met a person while entering the building and came to know later that he owns a few (not completely) adult blogs. Anyway, we entered the hall and greeted 3-4 people standing there. We then also prepared a 1-2 minute long skit. In the meantime people kept pouring in and organisers kept waiting for few more to come so that we have a decent strength and can kick start the evening. In the meantime we kept interacting with the fellow bloggers. I met Anand, who is an avid reader and writes book reviews on his blog, i met Abhishek who also has a photo blog.
Finally the evening, which was slated to start at 5:00 PM, started at 5:45 PM by intro given by Indiblogger team. IBNMS guys also gave a short intro.We were also fortunate to view a video made by a Pune blogger for Pune Blogger Meet.It was very inspiring.

After that, we all had our 1 minute of fame in which we spoke about ourselves and our blogs. It was fun. People told interesting bits about their blogging expirience, how they started their journey, how long they have been blogging and also which blogs they read. One of the bloggers told he started blogging from a cyber cafe. It was fun and informative. Then we headed for Pizza session and mingled all the time while munching Pizza and sipping coke. I met a person frm my college, Abhinav aka Photoshopper. He has nice photoshopping skills and he designed me the current logo for this blog,free! As the attendance was low, there were more pizzas then bloggers so the organisers aksed us to help them finish the pizzas.Me and some others gladly accepted the offer.

Then came the discussion on ethical blogging. People spoke their minds on everything. I spoke about my expirience with paid blogging and how it changed my PR.

The event ended after it and people left with some promising voices to meet again in near future without the banner.
That was a great expirience. Ofcourse i enjoyed because it was my first blogger meet but also because it gave me a chance to interact with people in real life.

    Got here from your post on Delhi elections (which I saw on twitter).

    You spoke up, you took action, you shared knowledge.

    If you are representative of the future – the country is in good hands.:D
