The Indian blogging scenario has grown by leaps and bounds in the last decade. Story-tellers from diverse backgrounds have taken up blogging to share their experiences and stories with the world.
From food, to fashion, to travel, the Indian blogosphere is as diverse as the nation itself. But it has all been fragmented till date. People are churning out stories and articles but it has majorly been in isolation.
The campaign is all about cherishing the concept of blogging and bringing all the bloggers on one page so that they can work together and, as a result, grow together. It’s an avenue for the blogging community to showcase their prowess and garner fame while working as a tight knit team.
Game for Storytellers
As a part of #CelebrateBlogging, “Game of Blogs” will allow bloggers to come together and create stories every week based on the characters that are announced at BlogAdda.
The bloggers will be paired with other bloggers to form a team and they will compete with other teams to create stories that are interesting and showcase the team’s creative skills.
The key here is to work together as a team and blog every day to create a story for the week.
The jury, comprising of very promising authors from India, include Ashwin Sanghi, Natasha Badhwar, Ravi Subramanian, Meghna Pant, Raksha Bharadia and Kiran Manral who will go through each story and shortlist the winning teams who will progress to the next round.
You will never know whom you are going to team up with, which is actually a good thing; as you get out of your comfort zone and come across team members who might add a different perspective to your blogging style.
It’s all about connecting with fellow bloggers and creating remarkable stories to compete with others.
In the final round, one will see top teams standing tall with their stories and the best ones out of them will get published in a book by BlogAdda in association with the publishing partners for #CelebrateBlogging – LeadStart Publishing.
Interact with Influencers
#CelebrateBlogging also gives bloggers a chance to interact with some of the most popular influencers in the blogging circles. The Ask Me Anything activity bridges the gap between bloggers & influencers in order to encourage the discussion of relevant topics and help the community as a whole to work towards achieving success.
As the blogosphere grows and evolves, bloggers are bound to have queries that need solutions. Bloggers can ask questions to these influencers and get them answered via live Twitter chats organized on Twitter via @blogadda.
The one held recently saw bloggers asking Kiran Manral several questions over the course of two hours and was highly resourceful. This activity received an overwhelming response with close to 2 million impressions on Twitter. The coming ones will see bloggers interacting live with Ravi Subramanian, Meghna Pant and more.
This is a great platform for both newbie and expert bloggers to join the conversation and help each other grow by addressing serious concerns. And not to mention, participation is free!
Above all, BlogAdda’s Collectives activity will also crowd source and curate articles on interesting topics from bloggers!
What’s in it for the Bloggers?
Nirav Sanghavi, CEO BlogAdda, says that “The Team at BlogAdda endeavors to bring new and innovative opportunities for bloggers and brands. #CelebrateBlogging is an attempt to empower the bloggers of our country and gratify them with much deserved accolades and appreciation. And to do justice towards the immense creativity of bloggers, we have a highly talented Jury Panel for “Game of Blogs”. There are a lot of celebrations and excitement in store for bloggers in the upcoming months at BlogAdda”
Well, as the name suggests, #CelebrateBlogging is for bloggers who are passionate about their craft and love telling stories. If you want to connect with fellow bloggers and showcase your storytelling skills to the world, this is the most apt platform for you.
Not only will you achieve fame, you will also get to interact with influencers who can help you grow as a blogger and become successful.
Moreover, the campaign will see gift vouchers from FabFurnish.com worth 2.5 lakhs given out to bloggers at different levels of activities.
All in all, BlogAdda’s #CelebrateBlogging looks like a great platform for the Indian blogging community to showcase its creative skills.
