I have had met Renie Revin almost a year back at one of the Social Media meet organised by another good friend. Renie's talk interested me to get on to the IndiBlogger and share thoughts with another passionate bloggers from across the world...  and last sunday, it was the first time I attended the blogger meet. It was a great journey from being a individual blogger for personal satisfaction to connecting with like minded people from all walks of life.... 


Here are my impressions from the Tata Grande Indiblogger Meet, a story in pics...

The Tata Grande that was the vehicle that launched the Chennai Meet

The first thing that hits you, as soon as you enter the venue at the newly opened Hyatt Hotel at Chennai, with its huge presence is the SUV "Tata Grande" and the it leads you on to the hall where eager Indiblogger team is waiting to welcome you with there stamping and registering your presence by logging on to the Indiblogger...




The IndiBlogger team was in all readiness and soon the hall started filling up... the silent man behind all this activity, the founder of IndiBlogger, Renie Ravin quietly slipped behind a huge poster, and kept the activity going.... all around him


As soon as the Tata Team arrived, the stage was set for the 49 Seconds of Fame... where 75 participants are asked to introduce themselves and their blog within 49 seconds. If you cross then you are asked 'Go to Jail" Some of the 49 seconders .... sharing their moment of truth


The other side of 49ers...


This session ended with a call for lovely High Tea... which I thoroughly enjoyed discussing with The Tata Grande team and some of the new friends I have had made instantly at the meet... As we all trickled back to attend the rest of the program, we were treated with a quite a few great presentation... Mathi was at his best, talking about Blogologues...

Yes we are all one...
Then we moved on to an interesting time to interact with more than 250 bloggers, who were attending the meet... with our charts and sketch pen's. It was fun to go around and introduce your self and ask for comments... I had my almost filled up both sides.. but then there were great people, who could actually find more than 100 people in the short time of 30 minutes to write at their board... And then actually one of the 'Rowdy Girl of the meet' won a prize for that beautiful comment on her sheet....

Some were seriously putting their thoughts... 

Some were having the time of their life...

Calling all the "Sketch Pens" Back...
Then it was the time for some serious discussion... divided into sections... like Chennai, Cars & travels, Blogging... etc. The team in the middle turned it into interesting games... 

Finally it was time for photo session and getting the cool T-shirt from IndiBlogger... 


I had enjoyed my first meet thoroughly and meeting the face behind such beautiful, thought provoking blogs, that I have been reading for almost a year... There are so many great talented people out there... you just need to reach out ... I did in the meet and look forward to more interaction.... how about starting Chennai Chapter @ IndiBlogger...?

Tata Grande Presentation
Oh Yes... "Yeah Dil Maange More" Look forward to more such lovely initiatives from IndiBlogger...
