Team- Vijeta 🙂

“Better late than never. Once again I am late, but I want to write. I must write to cherish all memories and experience.”-I checked again- mobile silent, minimized twitter- and started writing this… 🙂

Let me shout out loud-“Blog Adda team needs more than feedback!”

What?

A tight HUG 🙂

LOTs, LOTs, LOTS of LOVE from all Bloggers! 

After expressing my emotions with Hugs, Kisses and Love- Let my words express the Experience of participating in “Game of Blogs” with Blog Adda.

Being a Blog Adda member since long, All I did was placing “Blog Adda Member” label on my blog- that’s all. I had been least active, perhaps as I never knew where to participate, how to participate…

Even being a blogger since more than 5 years, I never had explored or realized power of being blogger.

“Here is September. Over some sandwiches and chips, we wondered if we could give it a twist that would add a few more strokes of colour. A brighter hue to a bright picture, if you will.”

The day I read the announcement of Game of Blogs, I instantly knew – I want to, I must! The same instant I made my registration as explained, too excited and eager to be part. Though I never took myself or my entry for “game of Blogs” seriously till I received an official mail from Blog Adda that I have been selected as a participant for it. It was a BIG moment for me. Since than-I kept on refreshing my mails more frequently, I started following Blog Adda on twitter too- as I now wanted to get every bit of competition and game myself for it!

Competition, Suspense, Rules, Deadlines- it had everything. September really was going to be fun, exciting, memorable. With busy routine, tough long day- I kept on counting days to September.

it was almost 6.00 am, early morning that day(first week on September), when I refreshed my mails as everyday’s habit. And I was happily surprised to find the mail from Blog Adda, informing about “The TEAM” for “Game of Blogs”. Instantly I composed a mail to all- just to say hello and introduce my self, not realizing that at 6.00 am the normal world sleeps peacefully. That was a beginning! Beginning to meet a new world of bloggers, all with different interest-priorities-nature-strengths-state..

Wooha, The day on which all participants were informed about their team, rules of round-1 was the most INTERESTING day! withing just 2-3 hours 10 strangers had shared more than 100 mails! MORE THAN 100 MAILS- really! Mails about themselves, their interest, their blog, story idea suggestions, rules discussion- lot, lot, lot more.. Like kids we felt excitement and joy to explore strangers.

We, Team Vijeta-The team of 10 bloggers- as announced by BLOG Adda, on the very first day itself had reduced to 8 members. Numbers don’t matter- creativity and enthusiasm do- keeping that in mind, all 8 members decided to participate.

Next day,we- 8 members discovered the actual rules and flow how to proceed but the biggest challenge was awaiting. Every one from the group was from different age group, interest area, state, language. Every one in the team had different story idea with same five characters given. Discussion, Arguments, discussion, arguments- it was kinda infinite loop. We were almost blocked in beginning itself!

My name was reported as a Team Leader (though till date I dont know the reason!), So I was supposed to decide post and member sequence as well as story line. Somehow all 8 members could never agree on anything from story line to Name of the team!  And being team leader all I could reply to every variety of mail was- “As the team decides!”.. And somehow I felt sympathy towards — >

Soon we all 8 members got a little sync.
