Time to REVEAL the BATOM 11

Before the World gets drenched in the Football Frenzy, its time to bring Blog-a-Ton 11 to an end. And as always, we bid farewell by declaring the Blog-a-Tonic of the Month.

But before I do that, let's welcome the new members of this ever-growing family;
  • Ketan
  • Zeba Siddiqui (Please provide a bloglink to be blogrolled)
  • SDeah (Please provide a bloglink to be blogrolled)
  • Kajal Iyer (Please provide a bloglink to be blogrolled)
You all will be blogrolled soon!

So now, it is the time for the REVELATION...

As evident, each vote from a participant =2 cheers whereas from non-participants =1 cheer

Vibhuti Bhandarkar Nayak's attempt to bring all the detective legends - Hercule Poirot, Sherlock Holmes, and Robert Langdon - together in this cell-phone-laptop-USB drive era has bagged her the Blog-a-Ton of the Month award. Congratulations. Your BATOM badge award has been mailed to you.

Gyanban and Leo once again manage to grab the runners-up position. I wish them all the best for the coming editions.

You all can also read the voting comments now. Just click here to find who all voted for you or liked your entry and what they had to say about it!

P.S. Some votes which were highly incompatible with the rules have been discarded while compiling the results though they are kept visible in the comments section and some votes might not be visible as they were directly mailed to me. Moreover, remember only those bloggers have valid votes who had been welcomed and blogrolled on Friday's Reminder post or who joined later but participated in the event.

And friends before I leave, I must remind you once again about our plans for Blog-a-Ton's First Anniversary celebrations. Following are the city wise Meet Marshals
  • New Delhi - Richa Sharma - er.richa.sharma[at]
  • Pune - Siddhesh 'Ravan' Kabe - hi5[at]
  • Mumbai - Rashi aka Psychedchick -rashiv[at]
  • Hyderabad - Tavish Chaddha -tavish.chadha[at]
  • Kolkatta - Sourav C. Pandey - sourav.c.pandey[at]
Kindly mail them if you are interested in joining the Blog-a-Ton First Anniversary Meet on July 4, 2010. Any correspondence between the meet marshals and the other blog-a-tonics should be cc-ed to me, vipul.grover[at] in order to keep me in the loop.

I am still waiting for someone to volunteer from Bengaluru and Chennai. Kindly reply asap. As for those interested to attend from these cities can mail me directly. Once we have a volunteer marshal from your city, he/she will take over.

Will be back soon with Blog-a-Ton 12
Blog-a-Tonically Yours
