Replace the parameters highlighted in red with their actual values.

Remove the extra code in case you are voting for less than three entries.

Remember, in case you participated, your vote will be counted as 1 and in case you didn't, then it will just carry the 1/2 value.

All your votes, one or two or three will carry this same weightage.

Hence, do not forget to give your post link or blogrolled name (whichever is applicable as clearly visible in the above code) as it will decide whether your vote is counted as 1 or 1/2 in value.

3. While voting for a Blog-a-Tonic, use his/her name as provided by him/her in his/her participation entry.
Moreover, in case of multiple entries by that blog-a-tonic, don't forget to number his post as mentioned by him/her while commenting.

 4. All your votes should be posted in a single comment. So, take your time - go through all posts - only then decide your one or two or three favourites.
In case you vote separately, only the first comment will be taken into consideration.

5.  Post your vote in the comments section of this post.

Now coming to the other rules:
  • Voting ends at  2300 hrs (IST) on  Jun 10, 2010.
  • I have started moderating the comments and won’t display the voting comments till the end of this process to keep the result secret till its conclusion.
  • After the voting code mentioned above, you may also add the reason, why you voted for a particular post to help others know what you expect as a reader. Moreover, you may also mention the other posts that you liked though you can vote for just one of them. 
  • In case of multiple entries by any blog-a-tonic, all his/her entries will be evaluated individually while deciding BATOM, i.e., the award will go to a post rather than the blogger.
The Votes will be discarded without any prior warning in case they are not sufficiently compatible with the rules.

So, if there is any query about voting or you do not find yourself blogrolled, feel free to drop in a mail. I'll try to get back to you asap.


Remember, the time stamp of your comment can be at most 22:59 and not 23:00 on Jun 10.

Hoping to see similar participation in voting too
Blog-a-Tonically Yours

    I vote for these three posts.
    1. Vibhuti.B :- Her Link
    the anagrams you used, the hidden detectives, the flow, the theme.. i liked them all. wonderful.

    2. Rumya :- Her Link
    quite breathtaking narration, eloquence of english, keeping with the topic! good work! u r a true Legend!

    3. adreamygal :- Her Link
    the word hidden wasn't there, but each of the episodes hid something. that was unique. hence my vote.

    There were a lot of posts that I liked. Each having a concept hidden in its own way.
    Thanks again to all writers who made this topic suggested by me a success! All the best and waiting for BAT12!

    2. Leo; his/her postlink = http://1mind2worlds.blogspot.com/2010/06/hidden.html
    3. Vibhuti; his/her postlink = http://klishmaklaver.blogspot.com/2010/06/this-post-has-been-published-by-me-as.html

    The Fool because for a gripping prologue which sustained my interest to know more. But unfortunately, its HIDDEN!! Liked the idea and waiting for more. True sign of a good writer is when the readers wait in anticipation.

    Leo because of a well crafted prose-poetry combination beautiful blend, well told and a terrific central idea. There was a tremendous impact at the end with an unusual twist to the tale. A tragic love story, very different from the rest.

    Vibhuti because of her clean flow of thoughts and ideas. Very descriptive to the minutest detail. It was the only detective story in BAT 11. The anagrams she came up with must have had a lot of tedious work put into it. So it was truly well hidden.

    Thus I vote for Three Versatile Bloggers and their Versatile Posts.

    I vote for -
    1. Rachna; his/her postlink = HIS/HER POST LINK

    2. Richa; his/her postlink = HIS/HER POST LINK


    3. The Ponderpool; his/her postlink = HIS/HER POST LINK

    Rachna-for the sheer pathos in her thoughts and the unrelenting trail of tragedy she lays to highlight the ironies of life.
    Richa-for putting into words those emotions that all of us feel but few can ever express; short and crisp and sure to leave a wishful smile on many a face.
    The Ponderpool-for the almost melodious manner in which she speaks of something which is evidently pungent in its manifest. Loved his words.
    The common denominator to all three is the brevity of their expression but the potency of their thoughts.
    Others who deserve a favourable mention are Mehak, Raksha and PhoenixRitu-if i could, i would cast my vote in favour of them too. Ritu’s post is terse and enigmatic, Mehak yet again dazzles with her philosophical take on life and Raksha’s story is written with the aplomb of a seasoned writer.
