Last night, Vipul Grover, the Host, Creator, Initiator of the Blog-a-Ton, sent me a mail. It was “Congratulations” in a Mail!
Yeah, Congratulating for winning the First Blog-a-Ton, the Blogging Marathon!!
And I was truly stumped!! Didn’t expect it, honestly.
No, I am not being modest! Coz, though only 12 FBs had participated this time, (We sure will have more than a Ton, next time!!), all the blog posts were unique and each had a very refreshing and a novel approach to the topic, The Cream and Scum of Blogging!!
So, though, it kind of, feels good to be the first recipient of the ‘Blog-a-Tonic of the Month’ award.
I’d take this as an opportunity to congratulate and thank all the fellow bloggers: Arjuna,Saimanohar,Dhiman, Avdi, Daisy Blue, Sid ‘Ravan’ Kabe, Shankar, Vipul Grover, Bharathi,Ranee, Ranee again and Pawan, who took the initiative to participate and then enthusiastically commented, supported and appreciated the FB’s posts.
And a BIG thank you to all the fellow readers and friends for their BIG support!! 🙂
So, lets celebrate, as we all made the first Blog-a-Ton a big success!!
Please have some and ENJOY!! 🙂
And I guess, we all can’t wait to participate in the next Blog-a-Ton!!
