BlogCamp Pune happened on 16th June 2007. First, hats off to Tarun & Parag for organising this BlogCamp Pune

Shilpa Dhamija’s article in IBNLive was titled:
“Write blogs, earn up to Rs 1 lakh”.

No doubt, Eklavya & Team from WatBlog are doing a great job covering the Internet Advertising and Technology scene in India. However Shilpa’s article would be interpreted by a newbie as an easy way of making fast money. Well, please, please don’t be under this impression. For every blogger who makes 1 lakh per month, there are more than 1000 bloggers who make nothing. [me included]
I just wanted to that straight.

Back to BlogCamp Pune on 16th June. Started off with no WiFi 🙁 , but Good T-Shirts!
So far, the best run down blog coverage, I could find was that by Lokesh Sapre. I would request you to read his post here.

The threads that i sat through were of Purple Nova, Fropper & SMS Gupshup. Presentation on flaming by Melody was appreciated by everyone. A very enthu guy Ashish went about interviewing everyone who participated, I felt that was very ‘sweet’, Thank You Ashish !

Umesh from announced in his presentation of EzBlogs that Fropper has an exclusive tie-up with Google for a “One Click installation” of Google Adsense to EzBlogs. Well, I am looking forward for that, as this is an easy way for people to skip all the Google Adsense code configuration. I am sure this would be a hit.

At 5:30 PM, we all assembled in the auditorium & Tarun & Parag sought feedback from everyone.
One of the things which everyone agreed was that at the next BlogCamp in Pune, there would be seperate threads for commercial [sponsors] & unsponsored ones.

Overall, this is a good start, got attention of the media & I am sure several people would consider to start blogging.

Looking forward to BarCamp Pune3
