Announcing the Hyderabad Bloggers Meet: January 2013

Many of you will remember the blast we had during the Hyderabad Bloggers Meet last year. We have been wanting to meet up again, and while most of us have stayed in touch and met in small groups, it felt like time to "do it again." It set out as a discussion a few weeks back, and as things crystallized, it has snowballed into something interesting.

The motivation was to get all of us together and have a good time while adding value to our role as bloggers and changemakers. The challenge was to do it without giving into the demands of consumerism and commerce.  We asked around to find people who would share their experience and wisdom with us on topics that would interest us all. That bit was easy. We then spoke with institutions to see if they would like to help us out for the heck of it, without any overt return on investment. This too was made easy mystically. As part of our work, some of us go out of our way to help others, without really expecting much, if anything, in return. The causes we had created with our work in the past gave us some effects, and we found people coming forward to help us out.

This is a group photo from the event that we managed to take at the last minute after many of the participants had left!

By mid-week we could finalize the speakers' line-up as Satish Kumar on SEO, Anuradha Goyal on Travel Blogging, Shankari Sundaram on Getting Published and Ratnakar Sadasyula on Social Media Activism. In spite of the short notice, we were also able to get The ITC Group as Venue Partners, Maxthon as Technology Partners, Blend Of Tea as Logistics Partners and BigBasket as Giveaway Sponsors. Mystically, it was turning into an event far beyond our imagination. It was as if everything we could have asked for was being arranged for, and then some!!


BigBasket is our Giveaway Sponsor

So here's announcing the meeting of bloggers in and around Hyderabad for sharing best practices and creating a social responsibility platform. The underlying theme for the meeting is the spirit of enabling change through the social media.
