Sweet Memories: Islamabad Bloggers Meetup

Islamabad Bloggers Meetup was held on 29th of December 2008 at the IEEE Bahria University Islamabad chapter. It was arranged as a joint venture of Google Pakistan and CIO Pakistan and was sponsered by bloggers.pk, Wateen and RedBull. It was infact a very nice oppertunity for students, professionals and everybody to know that how to make money online through blogging.

Session started up with the recitation of the holy Quran. Later Badar Khushnood(Country Director Google Pakistan) gave a presentation on blogging, "Blogging 101". Saad Hamid a student of Bahria University Islamabad shared his success story with the audience and told that he started his blog sizlopedia.com in January 2007 and is now earning $6000 per month from it. Afterward a panel of some successful bloggers of Pakistan answered the questions of the audience. Everything from the basic definition to the advance level was discussed and explained.

As I was live-blogging there so many people all around the Pakistan including Dr. Awab Alvi from Karachi (declared as the best blogger of South Asia), Maryam Naseem from Lahore, Alif Nizami from Rawalpindi, Khawar from Japan, DuFFer from Islamabad were live with me. The online participants also sent questions which were answered by the panel. Alif Nizami was the "online-panelist" for Urdu blogging. He answered the questions about Urdu blogging.

DjFlush was broadcasting the event live. Here are some snaps of the event taken by Abdul Wahid.
