The long awaited Mauritian Bloggers’ Meeeting was a success!
We did it!
Today, the 14th March 2009 is a date which should be written in the history of blogging in Mauritius.
For a first time, 25 bloggers met for a first meeting in Mac Donald, Port Louis.
This event had been organized since more than 1 week back by mainly Morinn, Jevin and myself.
This event was even hosted on facebook for a more convenient way to manage and send updates to all the guests.
btw, a big sorry to everyone in Mac Donald today, since we know, we were a bit crowdy (and noisy?), taking up 25 chairs in a long row 😛
Ya, ya, I know, each one of you want to get hold of all the names of those present in today’s meeting 😛
So, the 25 bloggers who attended our meeting are :

Of course, we won’t stop here!
Together with all other bloggers, we will soon be back in the real world to organise something even nicer and I hope that we will get even more bloggers attending the meeting…
Who knows, perhaps we may invite YOU, readers too!!!
btw, dear bloggers, now I am sure that I know the names of each one of you.
Special sorry to Sandeep, Irfaan, Parwez, PirbhayÂ and Ashfaq since I kept forgetting their names each time 😛
As from now, I can easily associate the names correctly with the pics 🙂
A big thanks to everyone for their presence!
Sorry for not coming today. I called Jevin to ask him to tell you that we were taken in a family lunch in Quatre-Bornes. It’s nice to see that you have had a lot of fun and I guess you’ve discussed about very interesting things.
When is the 3rd meeting?
Hi, its ok if you have not been able to make it for this time, but the next time, you have to be among us 🙂
Anyway, it was quite a short notice (about 1 week).
The next one?
We started discussing about the next event at the end of the meeting, and we hope it will be very soon.
I think we will soon be launching a suggestion box for collecting any ideas for the next one 🙂
And I guess that Mac Do will not be appropriate this time lol!
Have a nice Sunday!
Great meeting, great post!!!
P.S. my blog is http://www.sjdvda.com, not saajid.com ^^,
@ sjdvda : lol, sorry for the error…

Compte-Rendu par Pierre (Mauritius Network)…
I guess the customers at Mc Donald would be thinking about how big this family is and how weird they are, since they only talk about: blog, wordpress, blogger! 😀

Hey all, sorry for not being able to come, next time why don’t we all meet at P-louis then we go to the seaside? what say? 🙂
There will be plenty of space there and can accommodate loads of peeps:P
Really nice article indeed :)) .. nice that you have put up all the blogs of the persons present :))
Where can i find pictures with nick names on it.
completely confused with who is who.
next time everybody gets a sticker with his name and blog on it and sticked on the forehead 😛
@ stefan : The event which we created in Facebook is the best place to learn the names.
Most of us have been tagged onto the pictures 🙂
I think it is time to make a group on facebook now .. any suggestions ?
a group called Mauritian bloggers .. say what ?? :))we can keep as a much more formal platform for regrouping the members together.. i guess 99% of the bloggers are on facebook ! .. except one person !! .. dont remember who it was tho !! ..
@ashfaq i like this idea!
