Some quick tips for a good blog!
Although there is no sure shot way of pulling off a great blog post there are some patterns that we have noted from our experience of the previous contest and sharing stories till now:
1. A good experiential write up is personal! Purely because reader connects better.
2. Has a context to start with and does not end without conclusion/summarization/climax.
3. Has a good mix of words and visual creative like image, video, sketch, etc.
4. Is neither too short where a reader feels that he/she is missing the details, nor so long that she dozes off.
5. Supported with an introduction by the author.
NOTE: Bikat Adventures reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, modify or suspend the contest at any point of time.
