The Bloggers’ Meet Second Time in Kathmandu

Posted on Updated on

Well, this is the second time that the bloggers meet in Kathmandu. I was unable to post the entry of the First Ever Historical Meet of Bloggers in Kathmandu. I was also luckily participated there but i can’t post about it on my blog, that was my “alchhi pan” also and a little bit scarce of time, too. But this time i don’t want to miss the warm opportunity to post on about the meet of Bloggers. Both of the meet were held on the hall of Freedom Forum, Thapathali. At first meet, we have decided to continue the meetings on every first Saturday of the month. At that meet, we had also discussed about the possiblities of the blogging in Nepal, its’ challenges and its’ hopes. We had discussed on the topics of how to increase its possibilities and how to increase on the numbers of bloggers and the readers. We also had decided for not making any formal registration of the bloggers coz it is itself and informal and self regulated as one of the form of citizen journalism but not completely as citizen journalism but as like a part of it and as like a plateform to show one’s desires and experiences. It’s a blog. But, we have decided to blog within the certain limitations and within self descipline.  

Specially, the second meet of Bloggers also centered on promoting the Bloggers and the Blogging. There were some new faces as well as missing of some old faces who have met on the first meet. The discussion centered on the plans of future perspectives of blogging and holding the workshops, trainings to assist on the technical parts of blogging to the bloggers and to give ideas and general conceptions to the prospective bloggers. We also discussed about publishing a book about blogging, the short history of international blogging and the history of nepali blogging and about the nepali blogsphere. We also discussed on the matters of planning on the ideas of holding a conference probably on the beginning of 2008 and awarding best blogs in different segments.

Specially, i would like to thank Mr. Ujjwal Acharya and Mr. K. P. Dhungana to make possible the gatherings of Bloggers and for making the BLOGAN (Bloggers’ Association of Nepal-note: It’s a completely informal association). Any blogger who wants to join the BLOGAN can email on bloganepal@gmail.com. And, i would also like to appeal to all the readers plz promote the possibilities of Blogs and encourage us to do more better on this field. Do comments on our posts. If possible be a blogger.

    Althouth I m not a blogger in fact,

    I m very agree with your view i.e . “to all the readers plz promote the possibilities of Blogs and encourage us to do more better on this field. Do comments on our posts. If possible be a blogger.”

    thanking you again

    Hello to Nepal. Namaste.
    I live in Naundorf, Germany. I was in Kathmandu in 2007 Sauraha and have many friends there. This year, I will return to Kathmandu with his wife to travel and live in the Freak Street. Kathmandu city is wonderful and I like to come out. What’s new in Kathmandu? Is everything peaceful and well in Nepal?
    Have a good day,
    Lothar
