About the workshops

Blogging is all the rage nowadays. Everyone wants to be a blogger, whether it be for self-expression, to build a personal brand, or professionally. But there is much more to blogging than just creating a URL. It requires strategy and tactics, creativity and technical know-how.

Some bloggers “evolve,” learning through trial and error and by studying other bloggers. Others, meanwhile, flounder but don’t abandon ship. They mostly often share, at some level or the other, a need for hand-holding and guidance to take their blogs to the next levels but do not know where to turn to.

Indians, as a high context, multi-active society, learn better through face-to-face workshops than DIY online tips. This is where the IndiBlogger and The Communiqué Blogging Workshops come in.

IndiBlogger is one of India’s leading blogging communities, constantly striving to provide value-added services to its community. The Communiqué led by Rama Arya, meanwhile, is passionate about capacity building in communication and works with leading organizations countrywide. She is also the author of a successful blog.

By qualification she is a dentist and an MBA from NMIMS and was a corporate manager till last year, when she decided to quit her well-paying job because it wasn't giving her the satisfaction that she was looking for. She, then started her YouTube channel to give vent to her passion for creative things, in September last year and little did she know that her DIYs on re-using old clothes would become hugely popular and she would gain more than 3.25 Lakh subscribers in less than a year. People wonder how's she able to come up with such ideas to convert and up-cycle old clothes, without having any training in fashion designing or sewing and she has only one thing to say that everything falls in place on it's own when you follow your heart. She's now looking to take this further by starting a blog.
