Request for testimonials!
In the next few days, you're going to see some changes to IndiBlogger. One of the additions we plan to have is a page where we tell bloggers who haven't joined IndiBlogger as yet what they are missing. When you guys have the time, could you post your testimonials on this thread as to how IndiBlogger has helped you?
Thanks for giving us chance to share our feelings about our dearest IndiBlogger. See it's 2:30 am and I am still on Indi. I guess it's enough! Anyway, I have joined to IndiBlogger i guess a couple of months ago.....and what IndiBlogger has given me is.....Many very very nice friends....very deep readers for my blogs.......my beautiful IndiRanks....i can proudly show off....my achievement. The best part about IndiRank is it's updated monthly, so we have to work to maintain it.....more than we worked in Schools for good Rank. It's beautiful too. The IndiForum is very nice.......here we get instant help from the experts....friends are always ready to help. The blog reviews....also when we review others' blog it's also a great joy. IndiPolice is doing great job. Also Inditalk is also very nice..we get the chance to interact...simultaneously visit the blog and read it too. I guess we have become IndiFamily here.......and the joy of getting votes....aahaa I can't tell in the words....if I will establish as a writer or poetess.......i will always remember Indiblogger....my first readers......Pramodji and i will always remember the first encouragement i got from Indies.......and all my bestest friends...too! I guess i should have an article on my blog.....on this isn't it! Do you guys liked this one.....this is truly from the heart!
I would like to add one more thing here. During the Akshay Patra Contest I had an article dedicated to Indiblogger, Akshaya Patra and The Blog and feed 50 contest. And all the participents. I request you all, especially Renie and Inditeam will you please read that article? I think it can be added to these Testimonials.....The name is The Akshaya Patra Contest by Indiblogger - A simple way towards revolution. This article has connected Blogging, Spirituality, Social Networking, InidBlogger and Akshaya Patra together for the solution of various social issues. You will love that!
So Indiblogger is changing...all the best guys. You have been doing a great job till date and change means we are going to get a lot more from you.
-IndiBlogger is more than just a blog directory... its a platform to showcase talent.
-IndiBlogger is the one who brings bloggers and sponsors together through contests. This is a real great thing you guys have been doing.
-IndiBlogger offers a chance to this indicommunity to get to know each other personally by conducting indimeets.This is how many of us are real life friends today.
-IndiBlogger virtually inspires bloggers to push their limits and give out 101%. This is because we are on indivine and our posts are read and promoted by the great indicommunity.
-I feel nice and instigated to write more when I look at my fellow bloggers and mommy bloggers in particular.
-I am not done yet and I may revist this thread as there is so much to tell about indiblogger in India.
I can just go on and on......
Indiblogger has been a great motivation and of immense help in shaping my overall blog.There are a whole bunch of fellow bloggers who are ever ready to help us in hours of crisis.
- Indiranks keeps us on our toes, always inspiring you to keep blogging and to reach greater heights.
- The blog review section helps to improve various aspects of our blog by knowing what other bloggers think of it.
- Submitting posts to the Indivine section gives great exposure and wider reach to our posts which sometimes otherwise may go unnoticed.
- Timely contests keep up the competitive spirit and initiatives like Akshaya Patra gave us a chance to do our bit for the society as responsible bloggers.
- Also there is no bias here on the basis of indiranks and everyone is treated equally and given a fair chance.
I don’t have enough words to thank the Indiblogger team as it certainly has helped me grow as a blogger… Indiblogger is certainly not only a blogger directory for me, its much much more...
Thumbs up for this Renie and All the best for the future changes too!
Once upon a time, there was once a lost child, in the vast ocean of blogosphere. He had no idea of the blogging world and its rules. Yet he dared to venture into the unknown. Not knowing what lies ahead.
He wrote his blog and waited for the readers, no one came. No comments, no followers, no appreciation. He tried to spread the word via social networking, no one gave a damn. He tried spamming, nothing but frowns. He even tried the streets with the url of his blog on a cardboard placard, not even mercy did he gain! In a desperate attempt to get noticed he went from blog to blog, hoping to make a network and get noticed. Didn't work out.
Then, one fine day, while browsing through a blog, he came upon a widget, an "IndiRank" widget. He was curious, and he discovered IndiBlogger! Liked, the concept, but was not sure if he'd be noticed in this vast population of bloggers already so popular. He registered, with shivering hands. And requested a review of his blog.
Some reply came, they were encouraging. Then he went on the "IndiForum". He expected his "views" to go unnoticed just like everywhere else. This was not the case. He got reply from every other person on the forum! Then one day he got a reply from the man behind IndiBlogger himself! Thats when he knew this was not just any other bloggers forum. It was something different. Then he got his first "IndiRank"! The shiny badge that he can show off on his blog! He felt great. He discovered "IndiVine", that gave the required exposure a blog post deserves. And then, the followers, the comments, the readers, the pagerank all increased to pleasing proportions!
Indiblogger gave the newbie blogger a new friends, new readers, new exposure, new appreciation, a new home!
Then, on a fateful day, he met the "IndiTeam", who was behind this great invention. He was extremely pleased to be among them, in no way did they make him feel a newbie or an outsider, they were like the best of friends!
Then the IndiMeet(s) happened! And meeting the blogger buddies, the faces behind the DPs, the blogs was an experience that is extraordinary, always special!
I was the unknow Aditya before IndiBlogger, it gave me the identity that I am now! IndiBlogger made Addy....The Addy Brainwave!
Wow Nothing left for me I guess. Mohini, Addy, Pinky have shared all that I wanted to convey. I shall Add One more Point:
I gained so many friends who share my Interest, Come to help me when I need them. What more could I have asked.
Thanks Indiblogger and my dear Indigriends.
By Reading Aditya's story....I am so sentimental....I can't control my tears... I thought Addy has written my story. Hmm! I haven't attended the very famous Indimeet yet......Oh God! When will I meet all these angels who made the path of my blogging career........so easy and successful! And of course gave me the chance of social service by simple Akshaya Patra Blog and Feed 50 contest......I wish I will be the part of the Indimeet one day......and wanna see that Indi Ts who have created a maina in the blogs and lives of bloggers....!
I can only say that my blogging was completely haphazard and my blog
http://likemymusings.blogspot.com/ was one the brink of falling off the cliff in to an abysmal abyss.
I will frankly say wihout any shame that I had joined Indiblogger just to participate in Soch Lo contest and the credit goes to tikulli, though she doesn't know of it.
Since then on, there has been no turning back and my blog has grown by giant leaps, courtsey, Indiblogger team and fellow family members.
There is a saying "man is lead by the desire to be appreciated." and rightly, I feel deeply overwhelmed to Indiblogger & family, for the astounding appreciation I and my blog has received.
I take this opportunity to thank Mr.Renie Ravin, who has taken personal initiatives to my queries on many occassions, which needs a grand applause.
I did make many great, great friends too.
Three cheers to Indie team " hip hip hurray"
hip hp hurray
hip hip hurray.
On another note, one can be an Indian by choice ... in the same manner as one can be blogger by choice.
IndiBlogger isn't worth a testimonial. It worths more. Its a part of my life.
I started blogging a few months ago and I was not aware of people's interest nor I had any contact with my fellow bloggers.At that Indiblogger acted my Best Buddy. I found contacts to the other Indian Bloggers and many of them are now my good friends.
I got things to learn from the forums, I watched people's reaction, questions etc. Its the best learning medium for me and I'm still learning and improving myself and my blog.
IndiBlogger provides us everything all we want and the best part is that it never demands anything. And so, I'm proud to be a part of it. :)
I'm so glad that some change is being thought about the format of Indiblogger, not that it lacked anything, but change is always welcome.
A lot has been said about Indiblogger by my blogger pals, but would definitely like to say this one thing, which I've said earlier too that INDIBLOGGER connects all the little islands (blogs) strewn all around in the occean of Blogosphere. If not for a platform like this, we bloggers would have got discouraged to a great deal, as there would not be much chance to meet other bloggers, who would read and appreciate each other's views etc.
As a newcomer to the Blogsphere, I registered at Indiblogger and found some very amazing blogger pals, and I'm thankful to INDIBLOGGER for that. and not to forget the Indirank, which makes me feel so proud of my writing skill!!
I feel like writing a complete post on this including a working guide on what all to do at INDIBLOGGER. If Renie permits me, then would leave a link of the post, here in this thread.
Long live INDIBLOGGER !!
thanks! would be writing that....I would really appreciate if you have a look at it before I publish it, as I don't want to go wrong factually.... you can correct me wherever required. So, let me know how to mail u the article?
OK thanks! But now with this changed look, i got to observe the things properly before i write something... will surely get back to you.
Wow! Thank you so much people. Much, much appreciated - these are more than just testimonials.
@Addy, you are the dude!! said everything that is in the heart of IndiBloggers...
I share my story with Addy! And am sure so many others will do too.. to be recognized and accepted has been in more ways than one given so much of a confidence boost (its the secret of my energy) and enabled me to blog much better. Have made a so many IndiFriends and having met and attended IndiMeets and talking to IndiFriends over the IndiForum. Being the part of IndiPolice and giving out IndiWarnings gave us a much needed shot in arm to get more active over the forum while participating in IndiContests on Indivine got us excited but nothing like waiting every month end for the IndiRank! IndiCauses kept us checking our Sins and washing them by doing a good IndiDeed. Feel fortunate to list my IndiBlog over here and placing my IndiBadge on my IndiBlog, then doing IndiChats while i wear an IndiTee I got from #IndiBlr and #IndiMum IndiMeets seeing the IndiSmiles made me feel like a Demi IndiBlogGod.
You think I went IndiCrazy? here is IndiMore for you then...
Then came the IndiMobile version which enabled even an IndiBiker to be on the IndiForum on the move. Then over the ActiveBloggers thread having an IndiFight with IndiFlirt (MAG! who created IndiRecord for the longest thread) and IndiLoaded with words for a IndiGun and firing at IndiSpeed of thought. How can someone not be IndiAddicted with this IndiGenius of an network?
In a word, IndiBlogger is IndiAwesome! So here goes my oath, All IndiBloggers are my IndiBrothers and IndiBrother's IndiSisters..
Hemal! Man, thread like these just keep us going and inspire us to deliver more! This reply of yours is long as a blog! :)
IndiThanks@Mohini @Pinky @Vineet @Addy
@Pinky wow, Indi-elicious..
@Addy I hope not
@Vineet you guys inspire so much for us to do, i guess its only a small return gift
Would it be possible to edit the thumpnail photo or image of the blogger in the new indiblogger settings ?
I think that it would be a very useful feature if added.
Oh! IndiBlogger I could write poetry for you ! So much to say ! So much to write !...
...More than anything else - it has got me hooked on my blog which'll go a long way toward helping me FAIL IN THE UPCOMING ENTRANCE EXAMS. :|
Weird sites I stumble upon and IN TIMES LIKE THESE !
Please contribute to my misery- here - http://tweedlethumb.wordpress.com/
And, thank you IndiBlogger.
I havent been here for long , 3 months I suppose but in those 3 months there are 3 million or so times when i have pressed F5 to refresh the content of the indiblogger home screen,
1. Just to know what's new,
2. What happened to my post
2. When is the indirank going to be out
3. Who is online in chat room
4. Vent out my office frustation to an Indifriend
5. Get suggestions on something I need to know
6. Discuss ideas that fly out rapidly through our Indiminds
and so much more ...
If I write more than this , I may get short of space..
" The minds and hearts of 1000s of us
tied on our blog riding on the Indibus
from social to personal
from technical to travel
anything that comes our way
nothing is left astray
For we have our own place
where the writings find solace "
IndiBlogger has become an umbrella entity that brings together the large number of Indian bloggers scattered all over India and abroad. Language is not a barrier at IndiBlogger. The USP of the community comes out beautifully in their statement - "Indians by birth. Bloggers by choice."
I don't see how I could have ever gotten an opportunity to interact with so many bloggers and read content in such a vast range of genres. The forum at IndiBlogger is always active and has always delivered whenever I had any blog related query and if I might add, the presence of Renie Ravin (Founder of IndiBlogger) adds a very personal touch to whole experience of interaction.
The IndiVine, IndiRank and the Contents always keep things interesting around the community and promotes good writing. I hear the IndiMeets are a blast and I believe them though I haven't been able to attend one so far. :D
I always knew I was the best, Indiblogger confirmed it. :)
Jokes apart, Indiblogger is a fabulous platform to meet like minded people. Writing is one of the most creative manifestations of my brain's right half (the others being shoplifting and being a pain to humanity in general :P). But seriously, writing is a heartfelt obsession of mine which incidently, is not shared by my immediate social circle. And there's no greater pain for a blogger than to have come up with something fabulous and not being appreciated for it. And that's when I discovered Indiblogger - it's here that you meet fellow bloggers, united by the passion to write and divided only by the frequency. I've read so many blogs, learnt some amazing perspectives, seen some fabulous pictures and shared comments, views and opinions . I started writing for Indiblogger only very recently, prompted by the various contests, and in a week's time, I already came up with two posts (which by my standards, is a really big deal). Ultimately, Indiblogger is all about the writing. You write what you like, and when you see it appreciated by others, you like what you write.
The best thing here is that there's nothing wrong at Indiblogger, there's only write. ;)
At Indiblogger, it's all about the words.
It’s a very good platform to meet all Indian bloggers and to share their unique views.
Recently i joined here. So i don't able to know all features of Indibloger but many thanks to Indiblogger for helping me a lot for my blog. So much to say!!! but i am little busy for my blog.
