Blogyul-Blogging Bhutan


Its been quite a few months since we started this group. It all happened in some random manner. I have few of my friends, international bloggers who have created the pages in facebook to gather around the bloggers and discuss things openly. It wasn’t long before the same thought clicked my mind about having a page in facebook where I could try to bring out the bloggers and writers from Bhutan together, and like most of the people around the world, Bhutan has also many people in facebook and of all, bloggers and writers in facebook is not a wrong thing to assume. Facebook made it easier lot.
And within a few days only, there were more than a hundred members. It was a quick century. And now we have more than 150 members comprising of writers, bloggers, poets, artists, journalists and many more who share one common interest.
Thanks to the imitations by Business Bhutan and Dorji Wangchuk sir, Blogyul had gatherings in two occasions so far.
We are three of us who moderate the group. Thanks to Leythro for accepting my proposal of helping me in moderating the group. And finally we have Jurmi Chowang Sir who has been so courteous enough to provide a column in The Journalist and print out any articles weekly from our group. So guys, if you buy The Journalist, please do not forget to check out the column under the name: BLOGYUL.
Our first and foremost idea is to clearly define the dimension of the blogosphere created by Bhutanese writers and bloggers. We would like to bring out all possible blogs we know about into a light so that everyone can try follow eachother and learn collectively. We do that by bringing out at least a blog on our page by calling it BLOG-OF-THE-DAY and further we have also POST-OF-THE-DAY where we bring out at least a post from our bloggers. We also bring out some articles by other international bloggers and call it as GuestPost-of-The-Day. Apart from that, we encourage our members to share their latest posts or even the best post that they think they have in their blog(s).
We have plans and dreams to make it bigger, and encouraging with time. And to make it happen, we need your contributions through actively if not at least making an effort to share your posts with us and encourage others through dropping on their blogs to keep some encouraging comments.
P.S: If you guys have any suggestions and ideas to make our group better and encouraging, please do share with us.
