BNLF is Now Live – Part One
An expansive, ambitious, over the top and one of the craziest ideas ever thought of in IndiBlogger has begun its first day of execution! Join us as we take a first look at our thoughts behind this event in this post.
“Blog Now, Live Forever” will henceforth be called BNLF.
The first event from the BNLF series will be held in Mumbai on October 31st at the hotel Lalit. We chose a specific area in this venue because we didn’t want this event to be in a square hall with pretentious chandeliers and a couple of projector screens. We wanted something rugged that we could take and create an experience that would be in peoples minds for ages to come.
The event is all about blogging. When creating the agenda, we took a deep look into some of the critical, tangible and intangible components that made up blogging. We wanted some of the best to shed light on the passion, the skill, the commitment, the various avenues, technologies and those little qualities that added up to the cornerstone of success that bloggers claim to have achieved. This will indeed be the sacred congregation of the Pioneers Of Blogging.
Any blogger living anywhere in the world, can apply for passes that are free. Unfortunately we cant get everyone down so there is going to be a screening process. For this first event, we feel that people who have great editorial content will be able to really make use of the event. In light of this we are looking at people who love writing and write consistently on their blogs and have created a niche of their own. If you feel that your blog has these elements we would love to have you on board as the agenda really helps the more experienced and focused bloggers.
For IndiBlogger members, we are pretty sure that we have spoilt most of you in some cities at least, by conducting events in your back yard and you could probably roll out of bed, take an auto and attend a meet. For the BNLF series, we would encourage you to travel from whichever part of India you are living in. Every part of this meet is carefully constructed with key ideas that we cannot recreate in every city. So get off your backsides and we’ll see you there.
For this BNLF event, we have delegates who can purchase tickets to attend. The reception that we received from our very generous clientele has led to over 150 passes being sold even before the site went live! There is without doubt, a shift in the thought process as most who run campaigns with us have started to understand the value of gaining a real following as opposed to current trends of just propagating information that people may or may not need. I believe that advertisements are for TV and the news. The internet is meant for something far greater.
The next couple of years with BNLF is going to be action packed and fun! We welcome everyone to come on over , take a look at the site, give us feedback, shout out a resounding “Hell Yeah” and basically have some fun just as we did creating this program.
We will be back for the next post “BNLF is Now Live – Part 2” soon as we take a deeper look at the agenda, the thought behind it, the infamous IndiBlogger backstage party and more about how you guys can be a part of it.
Until next time \m/ \m/
