Lets plan something Bloggers....
selifshly ...would love this in July when i am back to Kolkata ;-) How about 22nd July'12 which is Sunday....lets have this tentative atleast
Note: how indiblogger team supports this events any idea???
Reason: added tentative date
Am up for it.. :-) Couldnt attend the last one.. but wont miss this one
Sure! I've never been to a meet, and will be in Kolkata in July. Should be interesting!
Ashu - go ahead and organize a meet and put a date in July (adding in description that the dates are tentative). This will send emails to all the bloggers in Kolkata. Also, create a thread and ask people to give suggestions about dates and venue. This will let you know how many people are interested in attending and this would much easier than spreadingg the news by contacts.
**Cancelling the event or postponing will cost you nothing sir :-)
Wait till weekend, I can share my experiences from Pune meet
I'm ready. Free in July. I'm very eager to go on an indimeet. The last indimeet in Kolkata was held just before I joined Indiblogger. Have been looking forward to the next indimeet ever since.
I find most recent indimeets sponsored by some brand. Is that necessary?
That's a great idea..I am ready. Never have been to any Indiblogger Meet..Couldn't attend the last one at Kolkata but will not miss this one..July will be preferable but others view is also necessary..
hmm quite a response... Janak, you are based in Kolkata, would you mind looking for some good place.. and we can schedule time as well based on the location. Any volunteers for organising this!!! wish i was there at Kolkata..... miss kol anyways....
I would have loved to do this, but can't do it untill my exams get over by mid June...Will it be okay?? or will it be too late???
Frnz, we did this at Pune and we did not have sponsors. And it was quite successful, You can read all about it here.
Any help needed, get back to me.
I guess a few of us Kolkata bloggers should volunteer to plan/discuss and execute this meet.
So who else is willing to volunteer in organizing it? (other than willing to attend the meet)
wow wow wow. I live in KGP which is like 3 hrs away from Kolkata. but i am underage so i wonder if my parents would allow me alone :( but lets see. i will come for sure if i can make it!!great initiative Ashu!! go for it!! :)
I'm up for it Xeno... lets put forward a plan when and where we can discuss it...
as of now, we can discuss here to make initial plans. I'll need to think on this. Meanwhile, ideas will be appreciated!
Decide a date first and announce it in the IndiMeet Section. This will give you a fair idea about how many people would be attending. You can plan logistics after that. Ensure that you keep at least one month's time between the date of announcement and the meet.
Suggest dates. How about 15th July, Sunday.
I am in even for volunteering in organizing it. My college is off for some time so..
it would be great!
I can go for any of the sundays on July .. 15th or 22nd... But I suppose lets keep it on 22nd July... we can have more time, planning out and arranging ...stuffs.. what say?
Yeah thats okay then. 22nd July Sunday. A fair amount of time.
So i guess i'm gonna go ahead and anounce it then as suggested by CA. Then we can plan the rest of it.
I am primarily from Kolkata and here till 10th but will leave after that for Gurgaon. :(Would have loved to meet bloggers but never mind.Just for suggestion if you want it outdoors City centre is a very good option.
One more suggestion. Do it on Sunday because its convinient for students, too. Satudays are not good for them. And yes, go ahead and announce. You will not get much response here so its better to announce it. Again personal experience.
And yes, let me know if you want to talk to me. I would Indimail you my number @Xeno
