As evident, here are the two Blog-a-Tonics of the Month. Just Click on their names to read their respective entries. PS: Since CRD & Vipul have garnered four votes each, I have decided to ignore the bronze medal.

(It's Vipul here - Being the Marshal, I don't mind forgoing the award as CRD really deserves it. So Bronze BATOM goes to him) 

28 participants have garnered at least one cheer under their name. :-) Rock on Blog-a-Tonics :-)

  1. Hey. Congrats to the winners..the badges look great

    I don't mind sharing the bronze batom with Vipul...and I guess he wouldn't mind either.

    Boy, am I award-hungry? :P


  2. At last my turn has come! Thanks a lot, RaNiiii, Priyanka, nidhi, Animesh, Vikram and Brijender for voting for me.

    I am really very delighted to win this finally on my 12th attempt. It is cool to talk about writing for writing's sake and all that. But one does need encouragaments of this sort to remain motivated. Congrats Sunjoo for winning the silver.

    I am so overwhelmed by this win that I feel like ranting on. But guess thats not what comments are for. Will do that on a post that I will get to post about my experiences here on becoming a veteran.

  3. Wow! What can I say? CRD, RaNiiii, aativas, Psych Babbler, The Fool:Many thanks for helping me win a batom in my second blog-a-ton.

    @ The Fool: Congratulations on placing first! As you have said in your voting comments, your vote did indeed count towards putting me in second place. (can't thank SiS enough for counting your vote too). Also, totally agree with you on how such encouragement is pretty much a lifeline for us bloggers.

    @Sadiya, Thanks for shout out! As you can see from my vote, the appreciation was mutual.

    Also I second CRD's suggestion of handing out two bronze batoms.

  4. Hey Congrats to winners...

    and thanks to my supporters..i.e. Simran and Leo...
