IndiBlogger is a directory of Indian blogs and a meeting point for bloggers. Unlike many other directories of blogs, IndiBlogger directory is powered by IndiBloogle -a nice example of Google’s custom search feature. Also, meetings feature is highly innovative as any member can call for meet on any tag! Like a photoblogger can call for a meet by selecting photoblog tag to get to know other photobloggers.
One such meet was organized last evening in Pune which I attended. Thanks to Prashant for reminding me about meeting otherwise I would have missed it for sure as I was busy shifting furniture to my place! So in hurry with my fellow blogger Anil I rushed to the event without much expectations as I joined indiBlogger just 2 days back.
So few things I have noticed that were different compare to blogger meets I attended in past…
- First there were more non-technical bloggers than typical tech blogger like me
- There was high concentration of regional language bloggers which is nice for the whole blogging community.
- So many nice chicks in blogging… I guess blogosphere is getting glamorous
- Every blogger got chance to showcase their blogs in “1-minute of fame” event.
- Although event was sponsored, there was no promotional activity than introduction to Windows Live Writer (WLW) by Sandhya Rajan, a Microsoft Intern. WLW is best desktop blogging client and I was surprised to see very few bloggers knew about it. I will post about it in detail soon!
On personal front I was delighted to meet and get some nice guidelines from Prashant Karandikar.
