Thank you, Delhi NCR bloggers
I am writing this on the aftermath of a super Delhi NCR Bloggers meet. I just loved meeting all you guys at the meet! Delhi has always been a happy place for the IndiBlogger.in team and we were refreshed to see the excitement before and during the meet. We hope to have a continued response from all the bloggers even after this meet.
This meet was quite exciting for us, because of the quality of community leaders in the Delhi NCR region. We had Kinshuk Sunil who led a very interesting session on blogging used as an internal tool within an intranet of a company/organization. I was just bought into that concept and was quite involved in that discussion. It was important for bloggers to know how blogging can be used effectively as a means of internal communication. We also had the Delhi Bloggers bloc participating with Priyanka (better known as Twilight Fairy) giving a very interactive session on social media and copyrights. This did raise quite a few questions in my own head and I can imagine how other bloggers present must have been thinking. Everything from youtube video sharing to copying content was discussed. Priyanka also narrated a real life story of her content being used without permission by Times of India and she says she had every reason to fight her case…and why not? It’s her content, her time and she won her little battle. The theme was that every blogger has to be protective of their content and ensure that they also don’t indulge in any sort of malpractice with or without the know-how.
We got a pretty good look at IE 8 this time around in Delhi from Abishek Kant from Microsoft. It was a very well constructed presentation and even had our friend Kinshuk Sunil wearing a black T with a clear firefox logo to sit up, take notice and ask quite a few questions.
Along with our usual IndiBlogger.in masala we also added “blog behind the bloggers back”, which was a community activity where everyone would write a blog comment on a chart paper hung across their backs. What transpired was a whole lot of fun comments being written across their backs, with someone writing “LOSER” on our Founder Renie Ravin’s Chart. I mean, if only I could find that person who did that, we would have given him a worthy prize LOL.

I hope you guys will appreciate this, but this has been one of our most relaxed blogger meets. Everyone took care of themselves, and made the venue feel like home. If that’s not what offline blogger meets are all about, I don’t know what is. It was inspiring listening to the Delhi community speak its mind and we return to Bangalore and Chennai knowing that for the next meet in Delhi we have a whole bunch of friends to look up to.
And finally, blogger with twitter ID prolificD: Thanks a ton for taking care of us and getting us home after the blogger meet. We love you man, along with the rest of the Delhi Bloggers.
