The Blogging Idol Contest

Okay guys, time to update you all about the Blogging Idol Competition I was participating in. The contest where I reached out to all my readers for help.

Meghna - The Blogging Idol Contest

The Result

It's over now and the results are out. It was a wonderful competition in full swing with healthy competitive spirit. Though I could not finally become the winner, I enjoyed every bit of it and learnt loads with every move and other participants. During the competition, I also met many new and interesting people too!

Okay, if you remember, there were 2 parts. - One to increase the RSS subscribers and the second was the open voting round.

Now, about my standing. I came 19th in the RSS round out of 125 well deserving competitors and 5th in the open voting round!


You might be thinking why I'm happy, eh?? Cause I think I did as best as I could and the people who came in the top three were too much deserving. I felt like a winner myself.

It's actually a good standing, with me being the youngest and guess the most amateur too. I really felt like I've won, so no qualms there. Though, I am determined to work hard and obtain better results next season!

Sincere Thanks to All of You:

And not to forget…. all you guys out there w

ho read my blog and voted or subscribed. Without your help, this would not have been possible! I had asked for help and it was most pleasant to see the co-operation of all readers and good friends.

It was most unexpected on my part, actually! I did not expect the tremendous result I got from you people to maintain a standing amidst the professionals in the competition!

I will never ever be able to express my thanks to you guys in mere words (:HUGS:)

Thank you all.

I was wondering how you made out in the Blogging Idol contest. That's so awesome you got 125 new people to subscribe to your blog. WTG!

Edit above comment: I read your post wrong. There were 125 participants. LOL! Whoops!

Anyway, I'm proud of you for entering.


@ harley,
Thank you. You're almost correct there too. The new subscribers I gained is around 107.
Thanks for the support of all of you.

That's a great achievement. I guess, having a lot of followers on twitter would have definitely worked well for ya.

I was pretty pathetic as after the first half, I lost interest lol... Not sure at what position I closed the competition.

As far as I'm concerned, if you enjoyed yourself and you learned a lot, then you really are a BIG winner already!

For starters, my dear Meghna, you certainly have already won my heart and admiration and also the hearts and admiration of many others besides, and I'm totally positive that you'll go on to win not only many more hearts, but a lot of literary awards as well!
