Blogging community is a well knit community where bloggers help each other to grow and develop together. We have observed bloggers organizing meetups where they interact and share their experiences with fellow bloggers. For Blogmint, being a platform to facilitate the blogger networking, it was a no-brainer to organize meets for bloggers. Hence after roaring success of Blogmint's Fashion Fab Fifty in December we came back with another blogger meet, #TechMinter50.
Sticking to the format, it was a perfect platform for both Bloggers and Brand to connect with each other. Unlike other blogger meets, we at blogmint aim that blogger meet should be all about Bloggers and not some product launches and brand showcase events. Planning accordingly #TechMinter50 consisted of a Blogger Panel Discussion, Brand Panel Discussion and Quiz.
Some of the leading bloggers like Jitendra Vaswani (www.technoven.com), Rahul Prabhakar (2brahulprabhakar.blogspot.com/), Jaideep Khanduja (http://pebbleinthestillwaters.blogspot.in/), Anurag Ajmera (www.quikrpost.com) and Gaurav Jaggi (www.blog) were handpicked for the Panel discussion where they shared about their journey from just-started-blogging to being a pro-blogger.
After a highly interactive session, it was time for bloggers to get perspective from the other side - Brand's perspective. Brands like GroupM, Casio, Zenith Optimedia and Thoughtbuzz shared the importance of Influencer marketing and what actually they look for while engaging blogger community.
After all these invigorating discussions it was time for a brain - cranking Quiz. Bloggers were divided into a team of 4 and questions ranging from technological topics to latest technological news were thrown on them. After 4 rounds of filtering one team were the lucky winners. The winning team got Casio G-Shock watches as gift. Gifts were sponsored by CASIO.
After mind draining sessions, it was time for a hearty lunch with fellow bloggers. Thanks to the Blogger meet format, bloggers not only gained knowledge on how Pro-Bloggers work but also what brands look into while selecting bloggers. Blogmint is delighted to have contributed to the blogging community with their initiative and look forward organizing more such interesting meets. Looking forward to meet you next time !!
