The first blog camp in Kerala called as BCK (Blog Camp Kerala) was held on August 16th at Alleppey in a houseboat. I was one of the 100 people who attended the function and it was a great success. The event was sponsored by Kerala Tourism. It was a great get together of all the bloggers from Kerala and few other from outside Kerala.
Blog Camp Kerala
Session by Mani- How to earn a living from Blog
The Blog camp started little at 10.30 AM and first thing we had was a intro session which was followed by other sessions. Mani Karthik from Daily SEO Blog has a very interesting and useful session for all bloggers where he discussed how to earn a living from blogging.
Pradeep Somasundaram, a playback singer delivered a session on audio blogging, describing the softwares needed for it. He even revealed secrets of playback singers.
Kenney Jacob, the organizer, had a session on Campus blogging and the initiatives taken for it.
I should say the most impressive session was from Kerala Farmer. He is a 60 year old farmer who finds time to blog and bring to public the corruption in Govt. I was truly amazed by his knowledge of Internet and his passion for blogging. He blogs in 3 languages and has many blogs in WordPress and Blogspot platform.
Apart from this Sajeev Balakrishan was busy drawing the cartoon of all bloggers who attended the function.
The BCK was altogether a great experience especially for the fact that it was the first unconference on a house boat. The lunch was typically Kerala style, check out the photo.
