And the topic for Blog-a-Ton 2 is...

Date for Blog-a-Ton 2 : September 5, 2009

Lets welcome the new Blog-a-Tonics:

Well friends, there seems no logic in waiting till Saturday to announce the Topic for Blog-a-Ton 2. Blog-a-Tonics have overwhelmingly voted for Teachers : Aaj Kal. It got around 20 votes as compared to distant second which garnered just around 6. So that is the topic, we all will blog on Sep 5, The Teachers Day.

If anyone finds it to be linguistically discriminating, feel free to go for Teachers : Now and Then or Teachers : translation of 'Aaj Kal' in your mother tongue.

So, you all have ample time to write it but you'll have to wait till Sep 5 to post it finally along with everyone else.

Other rules regarding posting will be conveyed to you later.

Before, I sign off, I must inform you that some of the Blog-a-Tonics have been nominated for Indiblogger of the Month award for the month of August, 2009. The list includes me, Pawan, Shilpa and Daisy Blue. (If there is anyone else too, kindly drop a comment.)

This month, the category is Original Literature - Short Stories.

So, if you find any of us worth while, do vote for us here. You'll need to scroll down a bit to find us.

My personal blog that got nominated is Reflections of an Empathic Libertarian and ideally, you won't miss my bald smiling profile picture while searching for it.

    I am trying my best but since we make quite an assumption about other generations to which we don't belong it would not be an easy task.

  10. @ Lakshmi Rajan

    I want to modify your comment, Don't mind.

    A bad student who passed only because of his teachers makes a good critic of teachers
