The Excitement of #bloggersdurgapujo Season 2

The Excitement of #bloggersdurgapujo Season 2

It was sometime at the beginning of September 2017, I can’t remember the exact date though, I received a message on Twitter from Kuheli sharing her thought of #bloggersdurgapujo and the collaboration. The time we both chatted the name #bloggersdurgapujo was not yet created, it was just a thought without the hashtag. I still remember how excited I was to this thought and glad to be a part of this collaboration. Rahul and Paromita, both from Hyderabad, joined the team. It was just 4 of us. A WhatsApp group was created and we 4 started gathering and planning for the posts, dates, sharing on social media etc. It was fun joining the group and for the first time in my blogging spree, I had been a part of such an exciting collaboration. And when it is about our biggest festival of the year Durga Pujo. The name #bloggersdurgapujo took shape during our WhatsApp brainstorming session. It was great fun for me. Choosing a topic and the day of having the post up on our respective blogs was pretty easy as we were just 4 and we chose 4 days of Durga Pujo when we would post. Rahul also posted a wrap-up post and I covered a few big Pujo in Bangalore and posted a video on my YouTube channel. You can check out the video here. This was the end of the #bloggersdurgapujo collaboration in 2017 but the collaboration among 4 of us continued as we remained in touch in WhatsApp. And that brought us here again together to make #bloggersdurgapujo bigger, brighter and more exciting in 2018 Durga Pujo.

The 2018 #bloggersdurgapujo

The 2018 Durga Pujo is nearing and again it was beginning of September when Rahul, this time, started the conversation for reviving our very own #bloggersdurgapujo. Instantly, the response was yes from all 4 of us, but this time we thought of making it bigger and brighter. The group of participating bloggers for this year’s #bloggersdurgapujo has increased 5 folds with 20 bloggers including myself. This has been incredible experience. This year’s Durga Pujo is going to be different for me and my group of Bengali bloggers from different parts of India where we will capture the essence of Durga Pujo in our own ways. There will be posts on each of our blogs pertaining to varied themes like food, travel, fashion, recipes, pandal hopping, fiction and many more. The #bloggersdurgapujo in this year’s Durga Pujo is the perfect example of “Bigger is better and brighter” and here we come with a bigger and better experience for our readers.

So don’t miss the chance to engage with the hashtag on social media – Twitter, Instagram & Facebook as we all share our experiences. Also, visit the blogs of the participating bloggers to taste the flavors of their recipes to enjoy Durga Pujo 2018.
