“Err…indibloggers meet?” I enquired a girl sitting in the couch at the reception of GRT convention Centre.
It was fantastic fun in the bloggers meet organized by Indiblogger.in in Chennai GRT convention yesterday (Saturday March 20). I happen to be a part of this meet. Well, I was completely clueless on whats gonan happen there. But after entering it was a different world!
She beamed on me with a wide smile and said, “Sorry, err…no idea!!”
Then I saw someone opening the big door of the meeting hall that lay in-front of me. I followed the suit. Happiness drenched me to see smiling faces and black T-Shirts bearing those words
Univercell Chennai Indibloggers Meet.
We Blog, Therefore We Are
Okay I’m in the right place; I thought and joined the queue to register myself. One laptop, One Textbox. I entered my indiblogger sign-in mail id. Whoa! Welcome Kalyan Varadarajan, said the message.
I slowly strolled towards the seating to park myself in an appropriate place so that I get to view the proceedings clearly!
It all started with indiblogger team introducing their members & then came the video on how Hitler wanted to attend this indiblogger meet (Watch it HERE). The next was a 30 seconds of fame which was “Tell me about yourself” thingy! It was all fun to hear from people. There was a mix of bloggers who fell into wide variety of categories viz. family blogger, food blogger, Software techies, Freelancers, entrepreneurs, marine engineers, dentist, authors, college students, lawyer, shutterbugs, blogging for cause and more.
After the intro sessions, came the activity session where in all were given a big chart with a tag on it, so that we can sling it in our neck with the chart in our back and people can write comments on it!! It was fun writing the comments (Back scratching!!).
The most interesting part was the tweet thing where all indiblogger profile image was displayed on screen & the latest tweet that the person tweets is updated in the screen with the hast tag #indichn. So it was obvious that there were terrific tweeters amidst the bloggers. It was actually fun pulling people’s legs in the tweets.
The proceedings of the meet went on with Univercell launching its official blog, brain storming session on “Should the marketing media switch to social media networking side to market and advertise their products and services?” and we had a blogger from Zee TV Tamil and many other media persons contributing their views and suggestions on this topic.
The meet concluded with the light snacks/Juice and the distribution of T-Shirts! That was really cool one. It was an enriching experience meeting new bloggers all over from Chennai and other places. I got new friends as well.
One of the blogger who was hosting the brain storming session I mentioned above was fluently speaking in a flawless Tanglish! So here came the tweet right in my mobile!
