On 08th Sep I had the privilege of attending a
bloggers’ meet organised by Blogadda and HP printers
at FatCat restaurant in
Andheri, to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Blogadda.
I reached in time and was warmly welcomed by Harish and his
team from Blogadda.
Soon after, the introductions began and I loved the way it
was anchored by Sagarika the livewire from
Blogadda who kept everyone in good
humour with her wit. Five adjectives were flashed on the screen to describe the
HP printer and we were asked to weave at least one of them to describe
ourselves in a single
This was followed by a brief spiel by Mr.Ghosh on why the HP printer is
the best thing that happened to
Despite the tremendous advances in digital technology, the
feel of your work, be it photography, a poem or a story, is felt so much better
when you see and hold it on paper than on a flat screen. Hence, despite
ecological concerns, I would still like to have a printout of my favorite work.
We were all given a chance to discuss our blogging concerns
and how to take it to the next level. Lot of ideas were thrown around and it
was generally agreed that as bloggers we do have a certain responsibility
towards our readers who we should never take for granted and strive to give our best always. Corinne also
pointed out that one should be sincere in one’s efforts not only in blogging
but also while reading and commenting on other blogs.
All this talk had made us hungry and we were served some
delicious snacks. The snacks at FatCat were
good and the service excellent!
All the bloggers were now asked to form into 3 teams to play
Jenga on 3 tables. This was the time needed
for the organisers to decide upon
the various prize winners for the meet.
There were prizes of gift hampers given away for the most
number of tweets during the meet, the funniest picture tweeted of the meet, the
most colourful personality of the meet and many others. It was almost a gift
fest though I did not win any as was busy capturing the happening moments of
the meet to share with you guys! No regrets!
Had a fun time meeting up with old
blogger friends and made some new blogger friends too and of course an 8GB Flash drive gifted by HP to each one of us!
