The meet was really a refreshing experience for the Bangalore Bloggers who had gathered in large numbers. It was my first meet and I was impressed by the informal way in which the organisers went about conducting the proceedings, while keeping things under control. Full credit to Renie and his team of youngsters.
While Kingfisher sponsored beer for the occasion I wished that something was also available for the tee-totallers who appeared to be quite a few. The discussions were on a variety of topics from plagiarism to monetizing and technical inputs for blogging etc. I was really surprised to hear about one blogger who has been blogging professionally and could earn quite well through this medium. There were different views on monetizing but in my view earning through blog per-se is not bad as long as the purpose of blogging was maintained.
It was a nice opportunity to meet the popular bloggers like MohanBN, SR Iyengar, Dhiman,Renie (the Anchor!) etc whom we know from the virtual world. True to his form, Mohan won a IndiBlogger T-Shirt for getting the second maximum comments about him in the meet!! The general standard of bloggers was so very good that am sure this medium is in for a good time.
Incidentally I was wondering whether indiblogger can arrange a meet on the eve of LIVE BUDGET presentation so that the bloggers could discuss and present the Indibloggers view on the Budget Impact for the information of fellow bloggers and the other readers. On the whole it was a pleasant experience and I look forward to the next one in Bangalore!

    It was my pleasure to have met you on your birthday and fortunate to wish you on that special day dear 'Young Boy' :) I was delighted with the kind of inputs you were providing, they were not just thought provoking but bought in a new dimension to the topic under discussion.

    Nice idea you have proposed on 'Budget' gathering. Look forward to meet you soon again :)

    That would have been a nice meet. One of blogger friends was mentioning about the Mumbai meet and how useful it was for her.
