Indulgence Friday at JCB Blogger Party

A thread that connected everyone that Friday was the love of writing. Women’s Web, a platform that offers Indian Women of all spheres insights into self and professional development, organized a Blogger Party at Jean Claude Biguine. It was a symposium of women bloggers in the fields of food, fashion, travel and self-improvement.

The evening started out with getting to know everyone in the room. I met a blogger who had just started out four months back and another who had been blogging for eight years! It was a spectrum of experience and multiple disciplines.

It was followed by a talk by Milan Vohra on ‘Blog to Book and Book to Blog’, discussing how a writer can choose various channels to communicate with an ever-evolving audience. A blog gives the writer a chance to continuously get feedback from the audience, a book on the other hand, once out there, is out there. Writing a book is also a greater investment in many ways compared to a blog.

Everyone pitched in their thoughts on why they write. Isn’t that after all the fundamental question? I write to preserve memories. A large part of my writing is my journals, and reading the older entries, dating as far as 13 years ago, gives me a chance to revisit nuances of life that my mind chose to forget. I can see myself grow through the progressive entries. Writing a blog allows me to explore my love for fashion. In the world of fashion, not a day goes by where I am not amazed or inspired by the incredible work being done out there. Through ClosetDance, I want to be the window to that world!

Milan reads an excerpt from her book

Milan went on to read a piece from her book ‘Tick Tock We’re 30’ that revolves around the get-together of a group of friends at Lara, the protagonist’s 30th birthday; old memories and pacts bubble up during the process.

While all this was going on, we got pampered at Jean Claude Biguine – some of us chose Hair Rituals, while others chose mani-pedis. I must tell you, it was a great experience at the Salon! I got a poker straight hair look and I loved how soft my hair felt! They definitely use the best of products and have extremely talented stylists. Now, I keep running my hands through my hair, and I fear I may ruin it! 😛

I can’t thank Women’s Web enough for having me over at this meet. I got to meet many lovely ladies and it was quite inspiring to see each one’s passion towards their blogs. I left the event not only with great hair, but great memories and friends.
