BANGALORE: The blogging world is closely following the Kerala and Tamil Nadu polls. Bloggers from Kerala, a politically aware state, compete with bloggers from Tamil Nadu.

The recently held a Blog-O-Poll to identify who will be Kerala's next chief minister. Oomen Chandy of the Congress won 159 votes, while his CPM rival VS Achuthanandan bagged only 23 votes.

Tamil Nadu, however, with a dozen dedicated political blogs like Arasiyal Talk, Therthal 2006 and Idly Vadai easily outnumber blogs from God's Own Country.

Congrats! This is great! People are indeed starting to take notice.

MC, congrats to you for initiating this blog, your thought provoking posts and all the hard work that went into it.

Babin, Aashik, Arjun, BMJ, congrats to you all for supporting and writing incredibly powerful posts as well.

I continue to remain a silent spectator as of now but still a strong supporter of this blog, and will do my best to produce something in writing, that is longer than a comment. :)
