A singular blogger meet!!!

I always wondered how many different types of  bloggers existed in this world, me being a tiny  part of it. It was realized on 11th April 2010 in Hyderabad at the IndiBlogger meet. I had my own apprehensions about the meet but it turned out to be different when I was welcomed by Nafisa!!! She was the one who called me up and confirmed me attending for the meet. I was glad she identified me :)
There was a huge turnout and was excited looking at the board where people were already tweeting about the meet!!! Twitter ki Zindabad!!!
The welcome video of Hitler sent by a German indiblogger was hilarious. It was followed by 30 seconds of fame where you get to know all the bloggers. There were stock experts, writers, fashion students, gadget freaks, techies, critics, cooking experts and recruiters at the meet. Damn... I just dont write anything specific and write everything under the sun.
The next session was getting to know each other with charts. Its a totally funny event with bloggers writing their ids on the chart and interacting with others.It was followed by quiz. Riyaz took the quiz and got to know interesting things about fake Steve Jobs, trade red paper clip to house and Six degrees of separation. Snacks were a delight followed by the photo session.


Thanks to IndiBlogger, I actually met two readers of my blog. They are satya and rambabu and also loads of other friends. Also came to know about some of the notable blogs. It would be great if such meetings are often!!!

It was a great experience.
I didn't get a chance to get your feedback in the "comment" session. We did talk for a few seconds on Android devices though :-)
Happy Blogging!
