Sunday morning, and an event at Airport, which is almost an hour drive from home!! But couldn't miss it, The First Blogging Conference of India, by Blogadda. Hubby dropped me at The Coutyard by Marriott by 9am, the scheduled time. Got to know the event got delayed by few minutes, meanwhile I got introduced to few bloggers.
Event started off and guess who was the anchor, Ashwin Mushran, one of my fav actor from the movie Fashion. Ashwin called upon Ravi Subramanian, who introduced to in-sights of authoring a book. Followed by was "Storytelling via Blogs" by Ravi P and Kavi Arasu, narrating stories through their photography. Lakshmipathy Bhat, Anaggh Desai and Manu Prasad spoke on how blogging influence brand. Then was the honour of first set of Blog winners.
After a break for lunch, where we got to taste some fab food, including Jain, the session was back with discussion on "Blogging and Publishing" with Kiran Manral and Ravi Subramanian. They shared their experience as authors of their books and answered blogger's doubts like, can an author make a living from his publication, could a good blogger be a good author and on. Ekalavya Bhattacharya, Karl Gomes and Vasundhara Das had a chat about travel, life and music. Padam Shri Shekhar Kapur shared his thoughts on how social media and blogging has been influencing the society today, and his experience as a blogger and social media person.
Anuradha Goyal, Amit Agarwal and Arjun Ravi inspired bloggers with their success stories. Jamshed Rajan kept everyone engaged with his stand up act. Followed by final set of blog awards. To end the session was a workshop by Abhigyan Jha of Jai Hind TV(which I opted to food blogging workshop by Kalyan Karmakar), on how videos on internet are becoming more popular than TV, which directs to a brighter future of video blogging.
All in all the day was well spent learning and celebrating blogging with inspiring people.
