        $scope.submit = function() {

            if ($scope.topics.indexOf($scope.topic) == -1) {
                $scope.error = 'Entered Topic is Not available.' +
                               ' Also, It is a Case sensitive';
            } else {
                $scope.error = '';

        $scope.getBlogPosts = function() {

                            + $scope.topic + "?alt=json").then(
                    function(response) {
                        $scope.myData =;
