BRTFF Edition 2 with new Logo and Site

Posted by Thejesh GN On August - 3 - 2007

brtff logoBangalore Roof Top Film Festival edition-2 is on this saturday sunday at Chung Wah. We are very grateful to Chung Wah for offering their roof top. And I am surprised to see the registrations are full and even the waiting list is full. This edition will have some talks from Indi film makers too. I am hoping to cover them in my own EB Show.

Now BRTFF has its own website ( much like how barcampbangalore has its own). But it is still done by participants. There are no organizers / Maintainers as such. Vatsap and Hari with lot of comments from the community have come with the logo. The logo is self explanatory. Please visit the site to know more about RTFF. And give you comments and suggestions. I created this site in a day. Its a wiki based solution. I hope you will like it. And see you on sunday.

How many hits does EventsBangalore get

Posted by Thejesh GN On July - 31 - 2007

Many were interested in the taraffic flow to EventsBangalore at BCB4. Here is the screeshot from Analytics for this month. This count is only for blog and doesnot include my hits to community and wiki. You can add around 2k to that. This month I have 8375 visitors and around 15k page views. ( click on the image for better view)
So it is usually 10K visitors per month. With around 20K page views.
Update: Thanks to Alagu for reminding me this. Feedburner tells me that there are 100+ subscribers on my list. Many use my live journal feed as friend. Dont know the exact number of readers there. There are around 500+ newsletter subscribers for EventsBangalore. So I guess the reach is more thank 10K+

Back from Barcamp Bangalore BCB4

Posted by Thejesh GN On July - 30 - 2007

This Barcamp I met lot of my readers and made friends. Of course I had to make up for missing the bloggers meet. This barcamp saw lot of non-techies than previous ones.

We had our own BRTFF members there. Dhempe live blogging offline and online.Lavanya taking lots of pictures and so on. Now I feel we should have had film makers collective. In BCB5 I am sure going to propose for film makers collective.

Photography collective was fun; I have Day-1 discussions on my hard disk. It’s whopping 2.5 GB. I will upload once I slice them into pieces and compress it to max. Some tips from Jace, Vinu were really good. Met wild life photographer Amogh and some of his tips were amazing. They are all on my video. I am sure its going to be a great tutorial.

Bloggers collective is the place I spent most of my time. The discussion about blog posts on main stream media was good. Photo blogging and mobile blogging discussions with Arun will probably force at least few to take up. I had my own session on “Searchable Blogs“. Kind of SEO for blogs session. The session was primarily for beginners. The slides are uploaded here (I am not able to upload them into slide share. If you can go ahead and upload).Thats me presenting. Thanks Sanjukta for the picture.
Thats myself, Himanshu and Anbu
Guys from mutiny were live blogging. Jerry and Sandil have covered everything about bloggers collective at Mutiny. They are doing a wonderful job there. Have a look you will surely enjoy if your interest is India.

I dont remember lot many. Thanks to all those who liked EventsBangalore. Keep visiting, lots of new features are coming up.
