Tell me something: When is the agenda to be published? I have been checking back a number of times but there seems to be no sign of that. Any clues about what's to be in it?
RUSHIKESH
RUSHIKESH said 4 years ago
@Garfield ya me too waiting........
Vineet Rajan
Vineet Rajan said 3 years ago
@Utkash: I am sure you wouldn't want to miss it for the world
@Garfield: The agenda is not upto us :) You decide what all you want to do at the blogger meet! :) So fire away on the Agenda!
@Rushikesh: Please join Garfield is making the agenda! `
Garfield
Garfield said 3 years ago
:) Now this reminds me of a board meeting where the one who opens his/her mouth about a certain point automatically is made in charge of it.:)

Well, here's what I propose:
1. An introduction - perhaps we can come in carrying badges so that saves us the need to introduce all the 148 (if they all turn up that is.)
The badge must display:
*Your name
*Your blog name and its hyperlink

2. Discuss why we blog. It's done to death I know, but it seems reasonable enough to get everyone to talk.
Garfield
Garfield said 3 years ago
3. Share tips on writing. This may or may not yield the following results:

The not-so-experienced lot may adopt a tip or two.
Bloggers will know why a blog looks and sounds as riotous or as silently brooding as it does.

The need to write it well and in as simple a manner as possible will be very subtly or loudly impressed upon.

4. Tips on blog layouts or what blog sites to use and why.

Feel free to add. I am rather sleepy and that does reflect in the points I suggest!

Guys, can anyone tell me how do we ensure that only fellow indibloggers only are 'attending' the meet? Just being a bit curious to know what will ensure this.
Vineet Rajan
Vineet Rajan said 3 years ago
@Garfield: Way to go, just check the agenda's for the previous blogger meets. that will also give you an idea. We will look into those, as soon as we have the ball rolling with other bloggers.
@Prashant: Good to have you in Mumbai now!
@Vivek: We sincerely hope you make it!
@Rishie: That's why we have the IndiPolice, represented by Magali in Mumbai. :)
Rishie
Rishie said 3 years ago
@Vineet: But if I go there, how would they know that I am 'Me'? You getting my question?
Rishie
Rishie said 3 years ago
Guys, am from Delhi and have never attended any of the Indiblogger meets. But this time around am not gonna miss this chance. I will be attending this meet for sure; and am really looking forward to meet some fellow bloggers and to make some blogger friends. Cheers to the Indimeet!!

@ Vineet: I want to know how to register my name for this meet? As I want to attend it. This will be my first meet so I am anxiously waiting for it. What is the duration of this meet? Any idea? Can I bring someone along with me? Or do I have to come alone?
Vineet Rajan
Vineet Rajan said 3 years ago
@Juhi: There is a register for the meet button which you need to use. The time for the event is mentioned. Its from 2Pm to and would go on till 6 PM. Unfortunately, only IndiBloggers are allowed for the event. So your friends would either have to be registered with us, or insanely beautiful. :)

Juhi
Juhi said 3 years ago
@Vinnet Thanks a Lot. Actually my husband would transfer there, so I will go with him before settling. That is the reason I asked u, “Can I bring someone along with me? Or do I have to come alone?” Chloromint Clear? Par Ab Dubaraa Mat Poochhna!! Later I would add Meerut/Mumbai as location in my blog.
Vineet Rajan
Vineet Rajan said 3 years ago

3 years of blogging, an indiblogger account and being registered to this meet..
Is that enuff or indipolice will kick me out?
Garfield
Garfield said 3 years ago
I have a question: How is Indiblogger.in to verify the identities of bloggers attending the event? I see you have asked for no identification as yet.
Srinivas Kulkarni
Srinivas Kulkarni said 3 years ago
Certainly... after two yrs is a long time... hope this one is exciting.....
Renie Ravin
Renie Ravin said 3 years ago
@Garfield - you'll be logging in with your IndiBlogger credentials at the registration. :-)
Garfield
Garfield said 3 years ago
That's a good identification process.

But I am in a mood to raise a ruckus today and I was wondering what if A sends B - with all the credentials in tow - to attend? What then? :)
Addy
Addy said 3 years ago
Guys! I am so badly wanted to but couldn't attend the meet, how about a live coverage of the event on twitter? Awesome idea, specially when everyone would be drunk! :P :D
