[Event] IndiBlogger Pune Meet Turns Out To Be A Huge Success!

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.

Thanks to Vineet, Anwin, indiBlogger Team and event sponsor Microsoft the event turned out to be much better than my expectation! This is the reason I am posting about it.. 😉

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!

Also Karamveer Singh and his $55123 earnings in February 2008 was something to remember!

On personal front I was delighted to meet and get some nice guidelines from Prashant Karandikar.

Update: Those who missed this meet can attend Mumbai Meet scheduled on 27th April 2007. Details are here

Hey Rahul, nice review on the meet. Just saw when I googled for the Mumbai meet, which was also awesome. Actually, my blog address is given wrongly in the post. I hope you can change it to the right one – http://anw.in/
