Any update on the Meet, blogs or photosession of the meet ?  

TF Carthick

Meet turned out to be joke with confusion regarding location and organizer doing the disappearing act. But 10 of us managed to find the location and have some informal intereaction. We did manage to click a couple of photos. The person who took the snap has to mail it to us. (Interestingly he is yet to register as a Indi member)

Oh it was new year joke i believe, because it was not official nor did have any sponsorers i doubted the veracity of the meet, that too in a odd location of Bhanshankari rather than in the heart of the city.  This is the second occasion that meet has been faked literally, one was on April fool day so it does not matter

TF Carthick

It has been posted by Rennie. So official stamp was of course there. But still met a few interesting bloggers in informal setting and made a couple of friends. So not totally disappointed.

Now looking back at the thread, looking at the smileys, omgs and silly comments, one can see organizer is just a kid. I doubt if she is even 18 years old. One cannot trust children to handle events. Indiblogger should have checked before endorsing this event as it affects their image. 

I was a bit sceptical about sponsored events as I feared they get too commercial and too much time is spent advertising products rather than networking with the bloggers. But I guess that is a price one can't avoid for a well organized meet.

I just now checked out her blog. She is just a 16 year old school student. Far from organizing meets, she must not even be participating in online community meets. Indiblogger should ensure children are not involved in all these community events. I don't think meeting strangers through online connection is safe for children. Someone who has her contact details, better warn her parents.

Umm!! Hello??

Please!!! My parents know about it. And they have nothing against it.

And well thanks a lot :). I actually made sure that you guys atleast met :).

Thank you thank you thank you.

Yesterday's Indiblogger meet can be compared to the glass half full and half empty! It was unlike the Samsung sponsored meet I had attended earlier.

Half Empty:

1. The location of meet not clear. Meet details were  "Cafe Coffee Day(CCD)" SRF Building... Landmark BDA Complex.Reached the BDA complex and found a very small CCD there. On Asking the CCD guys about meet there got a negative response. Then they said there might me one in the next CCD little far from there.

2. On reaching the other CCD and asking the team found that a group of people less than 10. No indiblogger offical and organizer missing. Dissappointed. Wondering did I do the right thing in coming for such meet.

Half Full:

It became an informal meet with us going through the blog of each of the attendees. Found some good ones in addition to one I follow(Soul and Space and One who wrote about why we Hindus don't read our religious book like Muslims and Christians). Thanks to Pavitra who had lugged her laptop along. Had a nice discussion on:

1) Wordpress vs blog spot

2) Owing your own domain vs having one on blogspot or wordpress.

3) SEO optmizations: onpage and off page

4) Blogging takes time and effort - To get decent traffic people blog for atleast 8-9 hours a week,

5) The Big bloggers : Amit Aggarwal(Labnol or Digitial Inspiration) & Amit Bhawani (whom was there for last Samsung indiblogger meet with his team from Hyderabad)

6) Location of indiblogger meet in Banaglore should be central like M.G Road or Kormangla.

After a nice round of tea and sandwitches split.

It was great meeting everyone and seeing their blogs. It was worth it!
