Topic for Blog-a-Ton 3!

Date for Blog-a-Ton 3 : October 3, 2009

Lets welcome the new Blog-a-Tonics who have taken our count to 75.

Blog-a-Tonics have overwhelmingly voted for The Indian Dream as the topic for Blog-a-Ton 3. I must congratulate Indian Pundit for suggesting it.

All in a Day's work was another favourite. Lets hope we take it up in future.

While dealing with the topic, 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.

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.

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.

I hope this clarification helps the new Blog-a-Tonics.

So, you all have ample time to write it but you'll have to wait till Oct 3 to post it finally along with everyone else.

Other rules regarding posting will be conveyed to you later.

Wishing you a free flow of thoughts
Blog-a-Tonically yours
Vipul Grover
