BuzzVines Extravaganza: A Blogger’s Cupa’ Tea

On the fabulous eve of 14th August at 5:00 PM, LMB was invited to join an informal blogger’s get together organized by BuzzVines, a brainchild of Amer Sarfraz. This was a sponsored event in Techys Lounge, and we were served with BuzzVines drink(coffee), chocolate cake and Red Bull Energy Drinks. Google, Elite Business Machines and Bramerz also held lucky draws, and my humble self won a Google Mug.

Due to heavy downpour, I managed to reach there by 6:00 PM, so I did not lose the chance to listen to Mr. Amer Sarfraz, who was sharing what BuzzVines is about and what made him pull in this idea to have some informal meeting and then Mr. S. J. Shirazi from LSE and Mr. Badar Khushnood from Google carried the conversation further. We were almost fifteen bloggers and some of us were quite senior for example Mr. Shirazi is on blogging scene since 1997. Other participants were, Ms. Saadia, Mr. Yasir, Mr. Hafiz Abdul Rehman, Mr. Zeeshan, Mr. Shaharyar, Mr. Aqeel, Mr. Waqas, Mr. Kumail, Mr. Atif and Karayadar Portal rep. We had very informative debate on indigenous issues regarding blogging. Everyone took part in conversation and all the questions were answered in the end by organizers with the hope that these informal gatherings will continue in the future.

    @NM: Shirazi sahib is such a nice person and he has much more experiance to share about blogging.

    @Pakistani: First meeting was a success and you better keep on visiting Buzzvines for next get together and i found Techy to be a cozy venue…

    Their Coffee and Cake was exceptional :) or maybe it was the weather ;)

    Opee is right and by “active” means he does have 20 active blogs currently :))
