And then there is none, er... I mean Blog-a-Ton 36!


Based on the voting over last one week, we have narrowed down the topic for BAT 36....

"and then there were none"

Chips from a Life of Asteria's Canvass...! gives us the inspiring suggestion this time around. Thank you.

The dream is having 100 entrants in a single edition! Can we make it possible in this New Year edition? Can we read 100 entrants this time? Spread the word, invite your friends...

  1. You can submit ONLY ONE POST for this event irrespective of the number of blogs you maintain.
  2. You are free to give any title to your entry. 
  3. You must use the phrase, "and then there were none" in your entry. 
  4. You must justify this theme 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Other rules regarding the posting will be conveyed to you later. So kindly wait for that notification till Saturday 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.

What’s more?

  • The winners will be featured on Blog-a-Ton Cover Photo!

And I'm sure you all have ample time to write it, but you'll have to wait till February 3rd to post it finally on your blog along with everyone else. Best of luck!

Please write your posts on time (February 3rd 00:00:00 – 23:59:59 IST) as the late entries will not be allowed to participate in the voting round (though the links will be added to the participants list).

Encourage your fellow bloggers to participate in this edition. You can share this post on your various social networking profiles through the ShareThis widget present at the bottom of this post.

Looking forward to a good Blog-a-Ton again.
Poetically Yours,


  1. Reminds me of the novel titled "Then There Were None" by Agatha Christie. Had read it recently.

  2. Hi Marshal, why is the BAT's prefix code having 'thirty-FIFTH' edition. it should be "thirty-SIXTH' right?
