And the Topic for Blog-a-Ton 1 is...

Date for Blog-a-Ton 1 : August 1, 2009

Before we declare the topic, we'll like to welcome the new Blog-a-Tonics

The topic for Blog-a-Ton 1 has been finalised as:
The Cream and Scum of Blogging

The topic was originally suggested as 'The Best and Worst(if any) of Blogging' by Shankar and has subsequently received maximum number of votes. However, the title has been reframed without disturbing the central theme.

Now you all have 6-7 days to write it, as it has to be posted on August 1, 2009; preferably between 0000 to 1800 hours (IST).

Till then, for the sake of consistency and popularising Blog-a-Ton; here are some rules:
  • The title of your post should be the topic itself; i.e. The Cream and Scum of Blogging.
  • The post should start with this text in blockquotes and with proper backlinks:
This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 1, the first edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.
  • The post should end with this text (Later on, it has to be replaced by the new updated code, I'll be posting on Aug 2, 2009):
The fellow Blog-a-Tonics who took part in this Blog-a-Ton can be checked here. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.
  • After posting it, do not forget to leave the link here. I'll be compiling all the links together and posting a HTML code with names of all the Blog-a-Tonics linking to their respective posts, by next morning on Aug 2, 2009. You'll have to copy this code to your post and update it.
To make your job easier, the HTML code for the beginning and ending lines can be copied from this Scribd Window and pasted to your post as it is. It contains all the desired formatting with the required links. Your post editor should be in Edit HTML mode and not in Compose mode while pasting it.


In case, the Scribd Window takes time to load, here is the HTML code. But you will have to replace the square brackets [ ] with the tag brackets < > within the code.
Beginning:
