Kingfisher IndiBlogger Bangalore Bloggers meet

in: Ideas and Thoughts

Today I got the chance to attend Kingfisher IndiBlogger Bangalore Bloggers meet. In the meet, I not only enjoyed chilled Kingfisher beer (3 mugs 🙂 ) but also got chance to meet many good bloggers, webmasters, social media experts. In the meeting blogging and tweeting ideas were flowing like anything. Around 150 bloggers from Banglore attended the meet. The meet held in Kyra Dining hall near 100ft road, Indiranagar. Initially all the bloggers were given chance to speak about their blog and profession. Some of the introductions were boring and most of the introductions were very inspiring and motivating. In the meet, I saw 3 bloggers who were more than 60 years old but seemed more confident, inspiring, passionate and focused towards blogging.

After the introductions were done we then moved on to regular blogging topics like monetization, blog popularity, reasons behind blogging, role of social media like twitter, how to get more visitors, problems of plaigiarism, copyright issues etc. Some bloggers also raised questions on the logic behind the calculation of indirank. I found the meet more useful for the beginners in blogging.

This was the agenda of the meeting.

Some of my observations from the Bloggers meet ::

  • In the meet there were very few professional bloggers, most of the bloggers were blogging on wordpress.com and blogger.com. Blogging was just a hobby for them.
  • Some of the bloggers criticized the algorithm behind the calculation of IndiRank.
  • Monetization through blogs was the hottest topic of discussion.
  • A few bloggers like Mohan (mohanbn.com) showed their concern towards blog plagiarism.
  • In the meet, there was an interesting game in which all the bloggers were given big sheets to be hung up in their neck and other bloggers would write comments behind the back of the bloggers. The game was a real fun for us. It gave bloggers a good opportunity to mix up with other bloggers.
  • In the meet, I met Raghava Sathish who is visually impaired but a very successful online marketing expert and a very enthusiastic blogger. He said that money was not a source of inspiration for him.
  • A gentleman called Mr. Saraswathan enlightened everyone with his witty comments and information. His example “your hand stops where my nose starts ” was just awesome.
  • There was nothing much for pro bloggers in the discussion. Most of the bloggers were discussing only basics and fundamentals.

    Hi Abhishek

    I came thrugh Google search on ur site.
    u and me are sharing same wordpress theme and also our topic of blogging is also same. Glad to see ur site.
    I walked thru some part of ur site. I was not able to crawl whole site as its very big 🙂

    I was surprised to see that ur site is older than mine and then also ur pagerank is 0. Mine is 3 🙂

    I think u sud try to focus on increasing PR more.

    Nice to have met you there Abhishek. You are going great guns with monetization! Look forward to get some help from you on that front 🙂

    Thanks for putting across all the details. Look forward for more details as you have mentioned towards the end of the post.

    @atul There is no use of pagerank. It is complete bakwas.. abhisays.com alexa ranking is 23k in world. That is more important.. Pagerank is just for fun.. Now a days no webmaster or pro blogger give importance to page rank.. so chill.. don’t be on cloud 9..

    Hi Abhishek,
    Nice post and a nice blog! I already knew about this website, but from now on I will visit it more often 🙂
    Yes, the meet was very good, chilled out atmosphere and as you said, even I was surprised to see very less pro-bloggers!
