bomb blasts affected “iisc life”.

Predict-and-win contest.

It was being felt that iisc life would reach 20K mark by the last day of the month, but Bangalore bomb blasts changed the scene drastically. In a single day on Jul 25, there were 3000+ visits to the blog, crossing 22K. The winner of predict-and-win contest is Sachin, whose prediction, Jul 30, is the closest.

It is worth mentioning that Meghana, one reader, had predicted Jul 25, but when she tried to comment on the post, it was already 10 tics past 17K and hence could not enter the competition.

iisc life makes a mark.

WordPress has a list of top posts of the day. iisc life ranked 52 amongst all posts in WordPress on Jul 26, 2008. Check it out here.

It was a second achievement of iisc life, when on the same day, it was ranked 8th fastest growing blog. Check it out here.

Thanks to all of you for the accomplishments.
