    FINEST BLOGS OF JULY 2010

    Dear ILites,

    July, the seventh month in the Gregorian calendar, seems to have great significance as many countries celebrate their Independence day during this month…

    July, the month of Rubies and Water-lilies, the Sun-Signs Cancer and Leo…

    As we come halfway through 2010, the onset of the monsoons in this part of the world has brought in some refreshing ideas to make the Blogger’s Forum more interesting and eye-catching…

    The BR Team and the site admin have decided that it is time to make a few changes to the Finest Blog contest. We are making it into a weekly contest from July 2010 onwards!

    Dear friends, we are excited to inform you that instead of just one Finest Blog Winner and Runner-up prize in a month, the new contest will have ‘weekly’ picks of insightful and unique blogs selected by the BR Team. So there will actually be 4 featured blogs, featured one per week every month and 4 bloggers who will get recognition and receive IL gifts every month!

    We are hoping this will attract more bloggers to IL's blog section, will also increase readership and participation of IL members (both bloggers & non-bloggers) in the blog section!

    So here we go, my dear IL friends, awaiting a deluge of blogs from you all...

    Padma Srinivas

    Dear Padma,

    This is indeed a great way to invite and encourage more bloggers. Because I usually find that posts in forums attract more readers than blogs unless of course, the bloggers have been blogging for a long time and have a loyal readership already.

    Keep it going IL.

    Nice Day
    Shail

    Dear PadmaS and the BR Team

    This is a great idea to encourage everyone to blog and also increase the viewership. Kudos for the thought.

    Now does this mean that nominations by us are no longer needed?? Just clarifying thats all.

    Good job once again for the new idea.

    Dear Padma, Lalitha and Mindi,

    Congratulations on the new scheme. This will give a big boost to the IL's blog space which is already swarming with great writers, both in the Fiction and Non-Fiction departments.

    While on this, dears, I have a request to make to you. Please leave out my blogs while making the weekly picks. There are many young talents that need to be encouraged and there is no point in considering a moffussil accountant's scribblings given the fact he has been writing for donkeys years and give the fact that he is encroaching the blog space though he has a dedicated forum in the Fiction section.

    Hope you would understand.

    Wish you best of luck.

    love,
    sridhar

    Dear Sridhar,

    Thanks so much for the words of apprection regarding the new format... I am sure we will have many wonderful blogs to read and optimistic of new bloggers coming into this section...

    As far as your description of your posts as 'moffussil accountant's scribblings', I have no words to say except I think you are being too modest about your narrative skills!

    So long as you continue to contribute in your prolific fashion, ILites will be very happy and I suppose we of the BR Team must accede to your wishes...

    Thanks for your support and best wishes, Sridhar...

    Regards,
    Padma
    BR Team

    I think thats a wonderful idea.
    That way, not only new bloggers would be encouraged to join - even the existing bloggers would be given a boost to blog reguraly and more frequently!

    The scheme will some out beautifully.!!! :thumbsup
