Blogging is the art of storytelling. Just like there is no poetic rhyme without the bent of emotion, similarly there is no blogging world without the ounce to tell a story. On this note, we, at The Social Lit, organised a blogging event titled ‘The Twenty-Something Bloggers’ in Jaipur city, at the well-known Cafe Lazy Mojo (Banquet). And, let me tell you guys, it was a great success. Not because all the tickets were sold, but because we seemed to ignite the old & new blogging souls of the city.
The event started with a fabulous ice-breaking game which set an interactive tone of the whole event. Under the ice-breaking game, all the people in the hall where asked to stand up, make a pair of two and shout with all the zest & energy, to the person in the front of them, “You’re beautiful”. (Yeah, all the men did that too!) Till the time people took their seats again, we could already see the shinning beacon of hope and curiosity which lit up their faces. To keep the fire blazing, we called upon the stage our first blogger-speaker, who is a blogger turned fashion designer and runs her own label called ‘Shiksha Bhansali’. The fashion insights and a talk on top five fashion blunders got the ball rolling in the court.
Next up, a session on lifestyle blogging was conducted by the LIT owners of The Social Lit- Nandni Gupta and Anjali Lakhi. They remarked that, “The single incitement which gets you blogging or writing that small piece in your personal diary, is curiosity”. They also gave meaningful insights on the latest trends in the world of lifestyle blogging, such as inbound marketing.
Then the event progressed towards the most exciting part, and that was an Entertainment quiz. It was divided into 5 parts- Digital round, Bollywood round, Ed Sheeran round, Geography round & New Age Slangs round. The quiz was really kick-ass with all the bloggers passionately competing with each other to win the amazing prizes sponsored by Goodwork.
After the fun quiz round, our esteemed Tech Blogger, Pawas Jain, the owner of The Tech portal gave valuable information on Technology and digital marketing. The way he handled the questions and doubts of the attendees was just spectacular.
Last but not the least, our vivacious Food Blogger, Priyamvada, the proud owner of The Foodie panda spoke about the how’s and why’s of food blogging. She really got all tummies churning with hunger strikes. The event rolled up, with exciting prize distributions to the Entertainment Quiz winners. Along with EQ, there was also ‘Click a crazy picture game’ whereby, our attendees were requested to get a crazy picture clicked at the entrance. These pictures were later displayed on the projector screens, whereby, the photo which got the maximum hooting and laughter from the audience, took away the prize.
The Twenty-Something Bloggers ended on a musical and happening note with an impromptu singing from the very talented Samarth Swarup.
