The Impact of IndiMarathon on Me

I am an Indiblogger member and I like to participate in all the contests on IndiBlogger. Recently, they have come up, with a new type of contest ‘IndiMaraton’. The first IndiMarathon is the ‘Tata Zica Marathon’ and it ends on 21st Feb 2016. In the marathon, you have to write creative articles or inspiring stories around any of these keywords – Fantastico, Impact, Peppy, Music and Navigation. The post should be a minimum of 450 words which in my opinion is a bit high.

Bloggers like me, are writing many creative articles and stories. I myself, have written 66 posts out which 18 posts are approved and 7 rejected. The leader of the board has written 96 posts till now. If I think, about the impact that IndiMarathon has on me then:

  • I have stopped taking my meals on time. Earlier, I used to take all my meals at a fixed time but now, I have totally forgotten about the time. Yesterday, I had my dinner at 11 PM, as I was busy writing post for ‘IndiMarathon’.
  • I have not touched my office work, from the past 10 days. Month end is coming and I have lot of pending works. My boss will scold me a lot, if I will not complete all my pending tasks before 28th of this month.
  • I have not taken, my 8 hours of sleep from the past 10 days. I have started sleeping at my office. Yesterday, I slept in an important meeting and I was scolded by my boss. He told me to take leave, if I am not feeling well.
  • I visit at least 30 times a day, the IndiMarathon leader board just to see my position on it. Yesterday, I woke up in the middle of the night and opened the Indiblogger website on my mobile. My name was on the 11th position from 9th position. I opened my laptop and started writing a post. It took me an hour, to write a post and I slept again at 4 AM. Today, I came late to office and my half day salary is gone.

The worst part is that, the last date of the contest is on Sunday and my wife wants to see a movie on this Sunday. After the movie, she wants to have dinner in a restaurant. Now, to avoid all arguments and fights I have to take her for the movie and dinner. So, writing posts on Sunday would be a tough task for me. For me, only two days are left, today and tomorrow.

Till now, the impact of ‘IndiMarathon’ has not been so good on me. Let’s see, if I can make it to the leader board and win a 20,000 rupees voucher for myself.

This blog post is inspired by the blogging marathon hosted on IndiBlogger for the launch of the #Fantastico Zica from Tata Motors. You can apply for a test drive of the hatchback Zica today.
