When Virtual Friends come real | Recap of Blogger Meetup 2017

This was unpredicted. This was amazing and memorable.

The time when Erika from www.erikamohssen-beyk.com was in India who is also a blogger, this small meetup took place. It was not possible without her as she united us to meet at one place.

I never met anyone already whom I was going to meet the first time. But It never felt like that was the first meet for any of us.

That coincident, everyone who attended was a blogger and had interests in SEO, blogging and content marketing. This was a casual meet and no predetermined place to meet.

We all gathered at Connaught place, New Delhi and then had enough chat at Cafe Coffee Day. Even after a few hours, the endless chats were not ending at all. Now we went to the Central Park, Rajiv Chowk and sat in a circle near the Huge Indian Flag.

Hi Erika, It was awesome meeting you. I never met someone positive and energetic person like you. That was actually a memorable day for me. There are 2 reasons first I never met my virtual friends before that and second that was an awesome day.

Thanks Vashistha for inviting me, else I won’t get this awesome experience.

You really a nice person, god bless you 🙂

First of all, I would like to say thanks to you, Erika. Without you it wouldn’t have been possible. It was a beautiful and memorable bloggers meet and I enjoyed it.

However, me and Shubhanshi we often meet but meeting you, Ravi, Vashishtha, Jagdish, Rohit and surprising visit of Kuldeep was an awesome feeling.

I learnt a lot from these guys all of them are masters in their field. I can’t wait for your next India trip.

Hope this time we will have some new blogger friends with us.

Bloggers I met on social media personally taught me an enormous amount about internet marketing from every angle. They have been a major educational influence to me, and taught me many important lessons..

Meeting Erika and all bloggers was an amazing experience. It was my first bloggers meet, and honestly, it became a lifetime memory.

I was delighted to learn that Erika has vast knowledge about the Indian culture and the Bhagwat Geeta. As she came to meet us just after getting treatment from the dentist, that she was not able to speak much.

Otherwise, we could get more knowledge from her. I wish to meet her again to know more about ‘The Secret.’ The most amazing part of our meet was we learned a lot from all the bloggers, and now we are friends.

Ravi Chahar is a WordPress enthusiast and has in-depth knowledge about it. Apart from a blogger, he is a good motivator as well. Whereas, Saurabh Tiwari knows a lot about the technical stuff like WordPress themes, Android, IOS, etc. We can learn a lot about these stuff from him.

Vashishtha Kapoor is the show-stealer, because of him we were able to meet the pro bloggers including Kulwant Nagi, the YouTube Expert Sid Kalra.

Jagdish Kashyap is the event blogging expert and a proper Delhite. He knows all the famous food joints in Delhi, and because of him, we were able to taste the famous Kachori at Hanuman Mandir. Although, I am also a Delhite but don’t know much about the famous food joints.

Meeting with Erika and all the other bloggers was an experience I can never forget. I have never had a time worth spending in any other bloggers’ meet.

It was not just a meet, we were all connected. It’s more like meeting with my friends.

This era is totally up for the internet people. I have never thought to meet these guys in person.

We used to help each other in our blogging journey and suddenly Umesh got an idea to meet Erika.

She is such a darling. Despite of having some medical issues, she came to meet us.

I was thrilled to have a great time with everyone.

Maybe we can do it again sometime.

This personal blogger Meetup is the 1st meetup that I have attended. I was honored to be a part of meetup this time. We decided to have this meetup when Erika R. Mohssen-Beyk Visited Delhi. I got to know about the meetup from Erika. Thank God she told me about the meetup, otherwise, I would have missed the chance.

I talked Vashishtha on Facebook immediately. He gave me more details about and officially invited me to it.

So, Overall Experience of this meetup was awesome. It felt great to be connected to so many bloggers(Like Ravi, Umesh, Shubhanshi, Jagdish Kashyap, Vashishtha Kapoor, Sid Karla ) with common interests and an open and curious mind. All it had was sharing of personal experiences and discussions over various topics. And it was so interesting that it made time just flew by. To know more fellow bloggers and their thoughts virtually and then meet them in real can be a different experience.

My Turn Now

I travelled 400+ km to New Delhi for this meetup. I am glad I met many faces having enormous knowledge.

Especially Jagdish, we enjoyed a lot like school friends.

Furthermore, I was glad some professional bloggers were there at a very short notice.

Words from Erika Mohssen – Beyk

Thank you ,Vashishtha for hosting this Indian blogger meeting round up on your site.

I am really happy that I was the cause for this meeting. I have been thinking myself about a meeting, but was so busy finding the right dentists for my treatment. I am really grateful to Umesh.

He did take action and made it happen. Shubhanshi did find a nice meeting place for us which was easy for me to find.

I tried to reach others ,but some have been out of town.

I had a dental treatment the day before and was not in best condition. But this did not diminish my excitement.

It was so beautiful to meet many of my Facebook Friends in real. It was the first highlight of my India trip a beautiful experience I will never forget it.

I hope we can repeat this ,dreaming for my next trip 🙂 Thank you all , I am feeling blessed to have such awesome friends.
