After meeting a bunch of bloggers for real, yeah, I finally feel like one now.👸 Though I am not a biggy, I gladly watched , listened, interacted with many aces while staying very much in my own skin.✌
Since this was my first such kind of meet; every minute was extremely special, and there’s no doubt, I lived each to max. The event, BLOG NOW LIVE FOREVER, was organised by Indibloggers.in and Valley of Words.
I write on WordPress, but one day while experimenting, I also registered myself with these guys, and thank God I did or how would I meet such a tornado of talent!
Indibloggers’ team interestingly chose Dehradun as the venue which I didn’t even think once of negating. However it’s some 5 hrs drive, I decided to give it a shot, and with the nod from Mr CoolHead, things fell in place easily.
It was snowing in the mountains, the weather in Dehradun was however surprisingly pleasant. My Glowingal’s viral almost disappeared as soon as we knocked the gates of the city.
I was immensely nervous about the event but the Indi team was amazing and super concerned about our whereabouts. Incredible guys.👍
The hotel I opted to stay was on the same road where the venue i.e. Hotel Madhuban was, but the traffic my God, is a big nuisance in this city; I hardly considered that while booking.
The moment I entered Madhuban’s main entrance, there was a lot of hustle bustle. People were busy in deep chit chat. I tried to mingle (which is not very me!). For a moment I kind of thought may be coming alone wasn’t that good an idea untill I met Archana and Kishor from Delhi; we stuck together almost all the time. Thanks Guys.
Also I tried to do some match-making in order to find those familiar faces on twitter but it wasn’t easy. (Most people don’t stay up to date😋).
After registering ourselves for the event, we headed to the lawn where a live concert was on. On the way, for the first time had a chance to talk to Anoopzombie…he was very warm (not warm warm ✌, friendly wala warm🤓 sorry Anoop).
Bobby Cash played many awesome tracks on his guitar; he is like one man band! Super amazing. 😀
There’s a secret …’I didn’t know HIM!!!’ In fact I even asked him for directions earlier to BNLF while he was posing with fans (probably he thought I might be in the que; I wasn’t😝). My bad Bobby. 😀
We swayed with music until a point… you know, there’s only one thing which according to me is universal and brings people closer. No no… it’s not wine 🤓; I am talking about dance💁.
Mr Shashidhar, spilling oodles of energy initiated the spark, and there…the lovers of dance…of music…young, old, learned, amateurs, man, women…all set the stage on fire. That was one awesome thing to do.
I met Neha Bahuguna there, without realizing who she was, instantly connected with her. We had hell of great time dancing together. This is only later that I realised she is one big shot. 😊
The food and fun was followed by the ‘only’ Bloggers’ session. I was amazed to get introduced to this whole bunch of talented, accomplished at the same time down-to-earth people; the joy and motivation flooded the air completely.
Vikram@sprortsmirror, I can’t believe the simplicity that you own; you are too simple to believe!🙌 Manpreet, you have a very young energy. A booktuber, you never feel like keeping things to yourself; very expressive and ever smiling beauty with brains and…voice👸.
Actually each and everyone was so inspiring; It’s difficult to contain them all in one post. Some have been blogging for more than a decade! Some have just joined and broke the records. Some write as a hobby; some as a full time job. Motives and results varied but eventually… it’s blogging that we all do, therefore we are! 👍 How could I forget that ‘after-dinner’ Pizza session… DOMINO’S…tin 🔔🔔
Indiblogger team was very cooperative; they took care of each and every person and made it sure we reached in our respective rooms safely. Kudos Indiblogger team👏.
What an evening!! Abolutely Unforgettable.😊
It was time to try to sleep…next day was going to be long…
