@Vikas : I agree with you that it is someone who is popular or a regular blogger contributing tends to win always due to higher visibility or having more friends in blogosphere.But isnt blogging an interactive media.

I hardly get to read others blogs(not that I wouldnt like to but I have paucity of time) but I use my blog to post my short stories and poems.Despite of my  non active status,my hindi blog was in top 10 list in short story contest and there were more than 300 hits during the contest.Similarly,blog adda has featured my englsih short stories 4 times in last one month as one of the best posts and traffic has been amazing!!!So,lets give credit to these guys for giving platform to bloggers to get noticed for good posts.

Lets hope with the new voting rules,the most poeticperson wins this time and good poets get good traffic:)

Vikas take a chill man.. U'll gt the traffic tht u deserve.. U jus need patience.

Indiblogger and Blogadda are doing what they can. And whatever they r doing is commendable. nd did they charge u anything for those services???

Yes, there is scope for improvement and Indiblogger guys are doing the same over the time.

Kindly support them rather thn putting up sch comments.

Secondly, yes thr r shortcumings in IB of the month voting bt rmmbr only a gud blogger will gt blogger buddies nd hence votes.. First, plz strt networking through IB nd u'll definitely do better in contest.

I was first runner up in second edition, at time wn i didn't have more thn half a dozen committed readers.

NO vipul...I disagree!there is nothing wrong in voicing your opinion..Vikas is right to have his take on IB of the month..and somehow perhaps he thinks he deserved it (say,sometime in the past)more than someone who GOT it...so there is nothing wrong in speaking out..

 

but yes the tone of the comment is obejectionable to many! NOT ME!!  :) :P we all have rights to speak AGAINST/FOR anything..

 

As for improvement and other stuff i agree with you..earlier we had no common place to meet up but now atleast we can have all our ppl to interact with one another(BLOGADDA still is prehistoric in this regard...they dont have IB type forums..or i might not explored it enough)

and about winning the IB of the month or not..well if you ask me..it really doesn matter to me who wins...(as long as I get the traffic.. :P )..

peace to all...may the best poet win . :)

1. Vipul, I am not dying for traffic. My primary blog has about 57000 hits as of now. I have about 10 blogs [many of them one-time documentations] including on social themes/issues like  Delhi zoo, JNU holi, etc. and they are doing quite well. 'Delhi zoo' almost tops in Google though not many search that keyword. I was only informing how the Blogadda link was almost useless from the traffic angle; this however may not be true for everyone as the Sonya Gee comment suggests.

2. Vipul, Indiblogger and Blogadda definitely do not charge us anything and neither does Blogcatalog and any other such forum. Such forums could and should be free only! You are free to feel to feel enormously obliged just the same!

3. Vipul, merely criticising does not mean that I am not supporting. If you think the comment is not in good humour feel free to suggest the admin to remove it. Dissent and criticism is the sine qua non of blogging. Feel free to criticise me and you will always be welcome.The world will be a very boring place if we only sugar coat things. Sarcasm, criticism etc. are also important aspects of life and blogging. So you take a chill!Cool

4. Well, even a bad blogger can get blogging buddies, FYI! People are hungry for comments and many network with an aim to getting comments and hits [you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours]! But such cases are rare. The point I was making is tnot that bad bloggers are getting selected; it's just that the more networked are getting selected.

5. Congrats on your being the first runner up in the second edition. If you have enough commmitted readers now, you may not lose another competition here.

6. If the tone and tenor of my comment is objectionable, I will have no problems with that post getting removed. Barking up the wrong tree is a wonderful idiom, I believe.

7. I wish the forum replies were also showing in our mailboxes instead of just a link to come back here and check things. Frown

8. Thank you Vipul, Sonya and Narendra for the comments.

Vipul, Narenda, Sonya,

Just a clarification. To date I have never participated in the contests here so the question of me deserving or not deserving does not arise!

Cheers.
