  16. 22 Shefaly October 23, 2008 at 4:42 pm

    @ Poonam:

    Blogs are probably worthless if nobody was reading them.

    How about an award for the ‘Best Blog Reader’? Of course, lurkers lose out on this one; but those who read regularly, participate in the conversation and contribute thoughtful, well-researched, well-articulated comments that enrich the conversation – not Fibonacci comments for which see Anshul’s link below – also deserve recognition. They may not have blogs but so what?

    http:// http://www.brainstuck.com/2008/10/20/other-comments/

    What do you think?

  17. 23 Dinesh Babu October 23, 2008 at 5:31 pm

    Wow, Great work guys! You have done a good job at compiling this long list.

    @Shefaly – That is an impressive idea. It will encourage them to read and participate more. Ever since Anshul made that cartoon, I had been itching to write such comments just for fun :) did once at Reema’s.

  18. 24 Poonam Sharma October 23, 2008 at 5:32 pm

    @dinu, Nimmy, Su: I will pass your thanks where it is due. :)

    @Rinchen: yes, it led to discovery of some really great blogs, even for me. Polls will take about two-three weeks to begin. As meanwhile, judges will be scoring.

    @Ashish: But you are a volunteer, so be prepared when I let you know fo some more work. :P

    @Nick, Pr3rna: Thank you! Please come back fro polls when they begin. :)

    @Chirax: Thank you, dude! I am going to upload badges in a separate post. :)

    @Megcloud9, Daniel’s Critical Corner: Thanks guys, come back for polls and find out how badges look like. :)

    @Anshul: Well, you are one judge yourself. :)

    @Kanagu, Nova, Arvind, Apar: Thank you for your encouragement and appreciation. :)

    @Ashish: You are in luck, dude! I have made an exception, seeing your persistance. As judges haven’t started judging this category, I could manage this feat.

    But no more nominations from anyone in the categories for which nominations ahve been closed. Though nominations are re-invited in 6 categories mentioned in the beginning of the post.

    @museditions: As a judge, you will ahev to certainly catchup on few categories. But I am glad you like what you see.

    @Rupa: If I do not get at least four nominations in this category, I will have to cancel this category itself. Best of luck!

    @xylene: Best of luck then! Why did you not nominate your posts? as far as I remember someone else nominated your posts.

    @Shefaly: Yeah, I would not want to be unfair to lurkers by keeping this award category. :) I read about 100 blogs a day (that explains why I write less), and I am lurker on a least 60 of them. :)

    Did you get reminded of Anshuls’ post by comments in this blog? Though I will side with you when you say blogs are wothless if noone reads them. Readers bring motivation to the blogger.

What I SOMETIMES Tweet

  • @manishmo why this question? Last I checked it was. 1 hour ago
  • RT @MirzaWaheed: "Muslim women wearing the niqab or burqa will be made to sit in a glass enclosure in Australia’s parliament house." 1 hour ago
  • @amreekandesi considering I share their gender. AD, you better get on to create a better Twitter diary. ;) 3/3 1 hour ago
  • @amreekandesi Story is about lives two inane women who gossip about work, men, shoes, brands etc. Too tedious even for me to read 2/3 1 hour ago
  • @amreekandesi That 'Twitter Diaries' book is unique in writing device, which is through tweets/DMs. But I don't think you'd like it. 1/3 1 hour ago
