Blog-a-ton 41 - Topic Suggestion

FRIDAY 23rd AUGUST 2013, 22:00 IST

Guten Tag!! Blog-a-Ton 41 is here. We are doing great. We hope the same from you.

Welcome to all new people coming by and welcome back to the old hands returning to Blog-a-ton. I’m Sarav a.k.a Someone is Special - The Marshal of Blog-a-Ton. Well, time is ticking along, and we move to our 41st Blog-a-ton edition, which will be on September 1, 2013. Looking forward to seeing the old hands back to writing, and new ones joining in.

The way we usually go about on Blog-a-ton is that we have a call for topics (THEME: OPPOSITES ) and then by voting, we decide on one of the topics as the topic for the month. After that, we give you a week’s time to write your post justifying the theme (TOPIC SELECTED) with a complementary post. Then, on the first Sunday of the succeeding month, you will publish the post on your blog, with our preset header and footer and come to Blog-a-ton and link your post in a comment. The week after the Blog-a-ton day will be for voting for 5 of your favorite blog-a-tonics from the edition.

It’s a one-day event each month, our dream is to get 100 participants in one edition, and our motto is to help writers to write better.

Well, in the last three editions the secret ballot went well, and we had a close voting than a runaway winner! I've decided to continue in this edition as well. So what is going to happen this time is that the secret ballot continues.

What you have to do is suggest the topics, THEME: OPPOSITES. Moderation is enabled, and I'll select the first ten topics that come. And we begin voting on that. If I find any topic to be inappropriate, or similar to that of a previous edition, that'll not come into the voting list.

Topics received so far.. Please start voting for any, or suggest a new one..

Sweet & Sour
Win or Lose
Fat & Thin
Lost & Found
Now or Never
Pride and Humility
Act natural
Dream or Reality

  • You can vote for any one topic.
  • If you wish to change your vote later and support another topic, you can do so during the voting time-frame. But you are allowed only one change-of-vote. I’ll consider only the second vote in that instance.
  • The voting period is from 14th August 2013, Wednesday to 23rd August 2013, Friday 21:00 IST.
  • The topic that gets the majority votes will be announced on 23rd August 2013, Friday as the Blog-a-ton 41 topic. In case two or more topics are tied at the end of voting, my vote as Marshal vote will decide. This time, we are giving you 8 days to write your post.
  • The Date for Blog-a-ton 41 is SEPTEMBER 01, 2013 SUNDAY from 00:00 IST to 23:59 IST.

Looking forward to a wonderful Blog-a-ton once again…

Poetically Yours,


  1. so for opposites my choice of topic would be 'Black and White' very wide scope for creativity here I believe.

  2. I suggest "Win or Lose"...


  3. I believe, Marshal, you meant "Fat & Thin" as the third topic in the list. I suggest the typo be corrected asap before the healthy members of Blog-a-Ton take offence to the error. :D

    A question too Marshal. If I have to suggest a topic for the ensuing BAT where do I post it?


  4. My vote is for WIN OR LOSE

  5. Hi!
    What I suggested was 'act natural' as in an oxymoron

  6. Topic Suggestion Closed :)
