  1. Congrats to all the winners. Thanks to Simran and Binzy for voting for me. Did not expect any votes this time as this time I participated only to express solidarity with organizers for an event that kicked off my blogging.

    Sorry I could not vote this time as thee were as many as 10 entries I could not finish reading before deadline and it was not fair to vote without reading 10 entries.

  13. I don't usually participate in competitions. But I enjoy reading BLOGATON entries each month, and loved the picture clue this month. It's my first win in any competition since I've started blogging! thanks BLOGATON... Special thanks to C Suresh, Insanity personified, aativas, Deepa and SIS for the vote!
    Hats off to the marshals for pulling off something like this so smoothly! If it is possible Can we please have A longer voting window next time. Would love to have the time to read all the entries and vote for my favorites.

    1. Hi Sapna :) Voting window is generally 5 to 7 days.. since Blogaton is based on a timing.

      2 wks b4 Blog-a-ton: Voting for topic starts.. voting discussion of 1 wk period.
      1 wks b4 Blog-a-ton: Topic is announced, so a week's time is there for bloggers to think of their post and get it written.
      1 day b4 Blog-a-ton: The actual post with the header and footers are ready and posted.
      1 day aft Blog-a-ton: Voting begins and it lasts 1 week.
      1 wk aft Blog-a-ton: Winners announced.

      So a whole month is covered that way. :) But we'll try to give it a little longer. No guarantees though.

  15. Congratulations to everyone. It feel great to end up on the winners list & in the veteran's list at the same time. Thank you BlogATon. It's a shame I could not find time to read enough entries to enable me to vote.
    I am particularly glad about my participation this time as I was determined to make a post this time & made it. I actually wrote it from a hotel room near Manchester airport just 5 years before boarding the flight for Mumbai. :-)
