Let's COLOR this time

The topic for Blog-a-Ton 42 is "COLOR", suggested by Someone is Special

DATE for BLOG-a-TON 42:
OCTOBER 06, 2013

TOPIC for BLOG-a-TON 42:

Our dream is to have a hundred participants come in one day and take part in an edition of Blog-a-ton. Let's hope we can do it in this edition! Thanks for the support as always.

The rules for Blog-a-ton 42 are:

  • You can SUBMIT ONLY ONE POST irrespective of the number of blogs that you have.
  • You can give your post any title that you wish to.
  • You must justify this theme with your post. You can do it with any type of post (i.e. Poetry, Fiction, 55 fiction, dialogue, Essay... etc). You can also choose to make it serious, humorous, tragic, romantic... whatever setting you'd love to give.
  • You can write in any language as well, but since most Blog-a-tonics would prefer English as their language of communication, we'd suggest that too, so your post reaches a wider audience, and help you when it comes to Blog-a-ton 42 voting time.
  • The other rules (viz. header & footer to put in your post, the way to submit it on October 6, 2013 etc.) will be conveyed to you on October 5, 2013. So kindly wait for that notification then 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.

The winners of Blog-a-ton 42 will be featured on the Blog-a-ton Facebook Page cover photograph.

You have plenty of time to write your post but please publish the post only on October 6, 2013 and not before. The aim of Blog-a-ton is to have many people posting on the same theme on the same day, and that day is October 6, 2013 for Blog-a-ton 42!!

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. Yes, it is a tie. I gave two hours extra time. Even posted on Blog-a-Ton page and waited for votes, but no one turned up. Finally, had to take a call myself based on two parameters.

      1. Blush - Is a romantic topic and it would lead people to write romantic stories. (I personally like it though)
      2. Color - One can write any post for the theme color. Can be romantic, ghost, colorful life, colors, etc. More over people who voted for the topic are regular writers. Considering that point I chose COLOR as BAT 42 topic.

  2. Hi,

    I am a newbie here...could you please tell me what exactly is meant by participation count ?

    1. Participation count = no. of times you have written for BAT before :) if this is your first time, then it will be 01 :)
