Contest is over -- Congratulations to Ajay :)

20 October 2010 by Shmuel Gershon

Today was voting day at EuroStar conferences.

Adam Brown, Ajay Balamurugadas and me were the three finalists out of the other excelent bloggers. All did a great job, but apparently the three of us were on top according to the criteria choosed by the judges.
So the three of us were up to votes. What an energetic day! Every time I looked at the results dashboard, the numbers pointed in a different direction :). Who would pack to Denmark for EuroStar? There was no way to be sure!
The contest ended at 17:00 (5 PM) London time, and announced Ajay as the winner! It is a well deserved win, Ajay wrote more blogs than any other blogger, and all with real high quality content.

I enjoyed the last 6 weeks immensely. I had never written so much in so little time, or experimented with speed-notes or videos before. Thanks EuroStar for providing this opportunity, really.

Thanks also to all the people who voted for me, the people I know, the people I don't, my peers from work, my friends, and my family too.
Thanks also to Ajay and Adam for being tough competitors :), the harder the challenge the more we enjoy it, right?

Ps> If EuroStar lets me, I'll still post here one or other follow-up for the posts from the past weeks.

    Hey Shmeul,
    Thanks for the kind words. As you have already mentioned in your previous post, 'Good game, good time'. I totally agree with that.
    Special thanks to all the participants for making it a healthy and tough competition.
    And this would not have been possible without the support of BlogSTAR organizers.

    Thank you once again,
    Ajay Balamurugadas

    Esteemed Mr Balamurugadas.
    It is an honor for me to have your comment in my blog, and a privilege for Ajay to have your support and motivation.

    Ajay did a great job, you should be proud of him: Even while I wasn't sure if I was one of the finalists, I was certain Ajay was in the list. :)

    Ajay, I'm sure you'll do a great job at EuroStar, we'll be following your reports avidly!
    Good luck;
