Topic for Blog-a-Ton 5 is...

Date for Blog-a-Ton 5 : December 5, 2009

Lets welcome the new Blog-a-Tonics first of all :
  • Preeti
  • Akshaya
  • Mona (Please provide us your Bloglink to be blogrolled)
  • Amrita Dash (Please provide us your Bloglink to be blogrolled)
  • Sonu
  • ELdeaago (Please provide us your Bloglink to be blogrolled)
  • Sunil
  • Sanand
  • Jan Kovitch (Please provide us your Bloglink to be blogrolled)
  • Ranjit (Please provide us your Bloglink to be blogrolled)
Blog-a-Tonics have voted for All in a day's work as the topic for Blog-a-Ton 5. I must congratulate Sid for suggesting this topic (Office space) during Blog-a-Ton 3, Madhu for giving it its present title back then and finally Narendra for revisiting it this time. Lets see how everyone perceives it.
(I must also congratulate Debosmita for suggesting the topic What if? which was a close second. Lets hope we are able to revisit it in the coming BATs.)

While dealing with the topic, you have the freedom to treat it the way you want. Its upto you; which genre of writing you choose, i.e. simple essay-type, article, dialogue, short story (even 55 Fiction for that matter), poem or whatever you feel like.

Moreover, its upto you; which mood or tone you choose to set it in, i.e. serious, witty, humour, optimistic or whatever that comes to you naturally.

Again, you have the freedom to choose the language of communication. However, we'll suggest you to write in English to put across your views to the maximum members which will also help you when its the time to vote for the BATOM.

I hope this clarification helps the new Blog-a-Tonics.

So, you all have ample time to write it but you'll have to wait till Dec 5 to post it finally along with everyone else.

Other rules regarding posting will be conveyed to you later.

So kindly wait for that notification on next Thursday/Friday rather than putting up queries right now. If the queries are regarding general pattern of the event, please go through the posts about previous events.
Wishing you all, a free flow of thoughts
Blog-a-Tonically yours
Vipul Grover


  1. wow !! i was so away from my blog, this blog and everybody else's blogs that i missed all this discussion!! how bad..dint even know when the topic was to be decided...:) nice to know that all in a day's work is in..

  2. "All in a day's work". So be it!

    "What if" too sounds good. Maybe next time...

  3. Hi! I'm Ths and my name is actually 'Tharangni'...

  4. Can anyone here explain me what this Topic deals with I am not able to grasp its context

  5. Well vEnKy if we explain what this topic means then that will go against the grain of Blog-a-Ton. Just interpret it the way you want to. However, to make things a bit easier for you, this topic when suggested had something to do with, "write about some incident that happened to you at office/college/school etc."

  6. Dear Vipul, sorry for writing here. Presently I have a poor connectivity, so grabbed the first one, which seems to be working.
    I have a request for Blog-a-Ton 5.
    Next week, I am traveling in remote parts of South Gujrat, where I will have no internet connectivity. I will return home on 6th early morning.
    If you can kindly allow me to post my entry for Blog-a-Ton 5, on Sunday, 6th December latest by 8.00 p.m., I can participate. Otherwise, it is certain that I won't be able to participate.
    If you say 'no' to my request, I understand.
    Thanks in advance - for whatever is your decision!

  7. @aativas.. you cn surely do tht.. bt i hav a better idea. Why not write ur post nd schedule it at 0000 hrs on Dec 5. I'll visit ur blog nd myself add ur link in the list.
    If u dont know how to schedule, gt back to me :)

  8. OMG @aativas @vipul this is so much a deja-vu ....aativas's request word by word and then vipul'd reply..everything...WOW!! i know this is irrelevant to the topic or anything in the world..but still..i am feeling i already knew aativas would go to south gujrat!! really

  9. lol.. it happens to all of us so many times :)

  10. This comment has been removed by the author.

  11. Vipul, yes, your suggestion is a better one :). I have scheduled post at 1.10 a.m. on 5th December .. for reasons unknown it was not taking 00 hours for schedule...:)
    As I am scheduling post for the first time, hope it works..
    I have not been able to add starting and ending lines about Blog-a-Ton, which I will add on 6th.
    Thanks again
    Narendra :)

  12. @Vipul G
    I'll be scheduling my post too and will add the lines that need to be added as pro- and epilogues later, if that's ok.

    However, the time zone thing kinda screws it up for me...


  13. I have a completely differnt question: How do you become a blog-a-tonic? And this time I searched quite a bit and haven't been able to figure it out...

  14. @ Richa

    To become a Blog-a-Tonic and to stay updated of all our future events, join us through the following Google Friend Connect widget.

  15. I think I did join through Google Friend Connect widget. At least blog-a-ton shows up in google reader or am I confusing something else for Google Friend Connect widget?

  18. @ Vipul

    Thank you so much for rolling me in the lists of talents!!

    But I do have a question and a very basic one, what exactly is the topic “All in a Day's Work." mean!

    I want to participate in it but somehow the words together are too brief to understand. Kindly let me know more specific the topic.

    Shall be glad to get the prompt reply!

  19. Rachana kindly read my reply to venky in the above comments.. It might help :)

  20. It seems all very complicated and difficult and scary :(

  21. it can be treated in anyway that pleases you.!!and why is it scary??...perhaps the clue is in the post itself.."must congratulate Sid for suggesting this topic (Office space)"


    cheers..and all the best..

  22. Hi..
    I really missed the action..Visiting this place after 20 days!!!!!!!
    And now I just have a few hours too plan the post!!!
    Wish Me Luck Guys!!!!

  23. All the best Niharika and I hope Roshmi, you are not scared now :)

  24. @ Vipul and Narendra: Guys... I was referring to the code and all. Was just kidding ;)

    A mere topic can scare me... ??? How did ya ever think... ???


    How... ???

    Double Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  25. हाय हैलो, क्या हम हिन्दी वाला इसमे भाग ले सकता?
    मुन्ना भाई की हिन्दी तो सब समझता है भाई, और अब तो हिन्दी को गिरगिट के जरिए रोमन समेत भारत की अन्य भाषाओं में भी पढ़ सकते हो भाई. और नहीं तो गूगल अनुवाद तो है ना. क्या कहते हो भाई लोग?

  26. Hi Ravi, you can participate in any language though we ideally suggest English as the medium to reach out to maximum audience around the country..

    Hey Roshmi, i undrstood tht its the code.. usually, we are the ones whon get scared on seeing ur mammoth posts :p

  27. @ Vipul: My posts aren't mammoth. Its just an 'illusion' ;)

    PS: btw... the 'mammoth' - is any species of the extinct genus Mammuthus. Got it! They are 'extinct'...

  28. @ Vipul: I am unable to view 3 posts from BAT 5.

    1. The Solitary Writer

    2. Niharika/Poor Jokes

    3. The West Wind/Annyesha Mohanty

    Any alternative... ???
