Though no official information exists, it has been learnt that my blog ( a particular post in fact) was discussed at recently concluded Barcamp5 at Bangalore. (under "word of mouth advertising" collective)
Barcamp is a get together event for bloggers wherein they discuss latest trends, technologies, happenings pertaining to blogging.
Last week Barcamp 5 was held at IIM Bangalore and it has come to my notice that Chandrachoodan Gopalkrishnan spoke about my club mahindra article explaining the power of blogging.
For the uninitiated, My "Never go for Club Mahindra" (New URL http://www.enidhi.net/2007/02/never-go-for-club-mahindra-membership.html )article has been the most popular article on this blog so far and has received over 129 comments till date.[details]
This post is also in top 3 when you search for club mahindra in Google.[details]
I'm delighted to hear that this post was discussed in barcamp.
Information that this post was discussed at Barcamp5 has been derived from below blog posts:
"Check out this interesting blog which was posted in the month of Feb. This blog was discussed in BarCamp5 @ Bangalore this month. And more interestingly if you type club mahindra this blog stands out at the second position on seach results."
"Chandrachoodan started the discussion by talking about Gang of Girls by Sunsilk. A platform which talks very little about shampoo and sunsilk but is a classic example of word of mouth advertising. it’s a platform for users or others to interact and express. He then spoke about a blogger who wrote something against Club Mahindra which became so huge that if you google for Club Mahindra it comes as the 2nd result. So that’s the power of word of mouth."
Thanks to Deepak and Sanjukta for sharing this information.
