Happy New Year and the IMAGE for Blog-a-Ton 6!

Date for Blog-a-Ton : January 9, 2010

Lets welcome the new members of our Blog-a-Ton family -
  • Ruchi Kumar (Please provide us your Bloglink to be blogrolled)
  • Kalpita (Please provide us your Bloglink to be blogrolled)
  • Richa Joshi (Please provide us your Bloglink to be blogrolled)

As you all must be knowing by now that for Blog-a-Ton 6, we have slightly changed the format of this event. So, this time there is no common topic to write on. Presenting to you the Blog-a-Ton 6 Image -

I must congratulate Me, Myself and I for suggesting this image and thank all those who voted for it. Frankly, even I am not sure, how am I going to shape my post ;)

Now what you have to do is, take inspiration from this image and write a complementing post. For those who find the image dull, try to add spice to it with your words. That's what Blog-a-Ton is all about.

Give whatever title to this image (and its complementing post) and wait for the final rules and reminders, next Friday.

While dealing with this image, 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 Jan 9, 2010 to post it finally along with everyone else.

Other rules regarding posting will be conveyed to you later.

So kindly wait for that notification on next Friday 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.

Kindly help in promoting the first Blog-a-Ton of the year 2010 by inviting others to participate through status messages and tweets on your social networking profiles.

Wishing you all a Happy and Prosperous 2010
Blog-a-Tonically yours
Vipul Grover
