With Diwali around the corner - Its CELEBRATIONS time!!!

Date for Blog-a-Ton 16 : Sunday, November 7, 2010 

With a week to go for the sixteenth marathon of bloggers, here is the time to reveal the topic for the month.

But before that lets welcome the new Blog-a-Tonics who will be running in this marathon with us;
    Hoping to see you all participating in BAT 16. Please provide your bloglinks to stay in touch!!!

    On the basis of the voting over last one week, we have narrowed down to the topic for BAT 16.

     Topic for Blog-a-Ton 16 : CELEBRATIONS

    A late but great suggestion from Uma found a lot of supporters, though Lights was another favourite.

    1. You can submit ONLY ONE POST for this event irrespective of the number of blogs you maintain.
    2. The title of your post should be Celebrations.
    3. You must justify this title with a complementary post. To make things easier, 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.
    4. 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.
    5. If you are having a cartoon blog, photo blog, painting blog etc, even you can participate with your piece of art complementing this title.
    6. 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.
    7. Other rules regarding the posting will be conveyed to you later. So kindly wait for that notification on next 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.
    So, you all have ample time to write it but you'll have to wait till Nov 7 to post it finally along with everyone else.

    Please write your posts on time as the late entries will not be allowed to participate in the voting round (though the links will be added to the participants list).

    Wishing you all, a free flow of thoughts
    Blog-a-Tonically yours


    1. Thanks Vipul, My blog link Looking forward to participating in Blog-a-ton 16!

    2. Yaay! Waiting for BATOM 16 :) Sure shot cure for Writer's block...Windmills of my mind churn out the best during BATOM.. sigh! Looks like I'm addicted :D

      Kitne aaye aur gaye but BATOM rocks! Thanks to your consistent efforts Vipul! So many contests try to allure bloggers with all kinds of gimmicks only to do a disappearing act sooner or later but then BATOM is one platform that is non-sense free. Deserving candidates win rather than the marketing honchos and vote extractors!

      Thanks yet again Marshal for providing a lovely platform like this one! Kudos! Wishing BATOM a great journey ahead :)Cheers!
