Chennai, July 10 (IANS) Bloggers in Tamil will find a place in the sun when more than 50 of them meet in Chennai July 20. “It is the first time that so many bloggers in Tamil will meet in real life and not just in the blogosphere”, R Krishnamurthi, who runs a popular blog, told the media here.

Writers of Tamil blogs like Minthamizh, Tamilpravagam, Tamil-nanbargal, Panpudan, Anbudan, Nambikai and Mazhalaigal will take part. Bloggers from the US, Canada, Germany and north India are expected to attend the meet, organisers said.

“The idea is to promote Tamil among young people and encourage writing in Tamil. Misuse of blog space will also be discussed”, Krishnamurthi said.

“We want to make our blogs more interactive. Methods to make Tamil blogs more reader-friendly will be discussed”, he said.

Tamil writers will be urged to place their literary work in blogs. “This will enable people in distant lands to read their work”, Krishnamurthi said.
