To Food, Blogging & Friendships : The First Ever Indian Food Bloggers Meet 2014
I’m sure most of you, at least those who are in India and on Facebook, have been seeing post and updates about the Indian Food Bloggers Meet (a.k.a. IFBMeet) at Bangalore on the 1st 2nd August. We are all quite excited about the event and really looking forward to meeting the food bloggers who will be there, some of whom are very good friends.
The main idea behind a Meet of this kind was to bring together food bloggers from across India at one venue so that they could interact with like-minded people who enjoy food and blogging about it. We also wanted the occasion to go beyond an enjoyable meet-and-greet experience and make it one where food bloggers could also take back something in terms of knowledge connected with good food blogging practices.
Speaking for myself, being someone who didn’t even know where to start with something like this, I’ve been lucky to have three good friends and great organizers along with me and the going has been good so far.
We have a lot of exciting sessions planned for the two days. Participants at the Meet can expect to sit in on sessions on topics including Food Styling by Deeba Rajpal, Food Writing by Rushina Ghildayal, Social Media for Food Bloggers by Nandita Iyer, and Taking Better Food Photographs by me. Please see the IFBMeet blog for details on the other sessions.
We also have a goodie bag packed with surprises that we will be giving away to all the food bloggers attending the Meet.
Looking forward to seeing some of you at Bangalore.
