  1. I feel really bad about not being able to vote for this edition. I read some of the entries and loved them. :( However, very grateful to BAT 50 for still choosing my blog post among the winners. Thanks Marshal. Thanks everyone for reading and appreciating.

    1. You are welcome Namrata :) Keep writing! Keep reading! Keep voting!

  2. Heartiest Congratulations to the winners for your well deserved enteries - Cifar, Khushboo, vinay, Jaibala, Namrata!

    A big thanks to the entire team of Blogaton for making it happen every time and such encouraging participants!

    Here is a small confession- I haven't got 6 votes. Urvashi didn't vote for me.
    I am overwhelmed to see people liked or voted for me in the first place- because I was really skeptical about what I wrote.

    1. Hi Megha,

      Thank you so much for pointing it out. I accept, mistakes do happen at times, but I'm bit sad that this time it affected the results. If people do not follow the guidelines then it is a big headache to count the votes. I am the one man army, so you can imagine the amount of hard work put in this. It took two hours and fotry-five minutes to count the votes, create the badges, create the cover photographs, and I slept really late, but the output is :(

      Not a problem, as a Marshal, I accept the mistake. and I award Jaibala the SILVER BATOM, as she got five votes too.


    2. The Facebook Cover Photograph will be updated in the evening. Thank you

    3. Sarav, it happens with the best of us!
      and you have done a commendable job, you manage almost everything. Like I said you guys together make it possible for us. :-)
      I confessed it, because I noticed I'm getting undue advantage with that extra vote that I didn't earn. :|
      I will try hard next time.. To come out asa clear winner. Hehehe.. And congratulations jaibala! :-)

    4. Without your help, JB would have missed her SILVER BATOM. Thanks to you. Keep supporting and good luck for the next!

  3. I am overwhelmed by the love shown to my post. I am thankful to The Whitescape, Megha Malik, Khushboo, Vinay Leo, Alcina, aativas, Amrita, Meenal Sonal, Arvind Sampath, Jaibala Rao, Isha Khanna, Simran Kaur and Aishwarya for reading and voting for me. It feels top of the world to win a special edition.Thank You again.

  4. Congratulations Cifar and others. You guys have been regular here and I think that this should happen every month.
