And so we run... for a change!!!

You don't want me to give you the age-old lecture on how change is the universal truth right? We have been listening to it since a while...

So is blogaton season 2 ever going to start? Obviously it is,

Date for Blog-a-Ton 18 Season 2  : Mar 5, 2011 IST (Coming Saturday)

Yikes, isn't it? This time you get a less head-start. ;) If you are into another time zone, please convert it into your respective Time Zone, you can mention your time zone in the comment to this post.

Topic for Blog-a-Ton 17 : Change

The topic clearly won the majority of votes and was suggested by no other Neha, the awesome lawyer of blogistan. Change is quite a broad topic and the universal fact, so get your head racing to run for a change. ONLY POST ON MARCH 05, 2011 BETWEEN 00:00 TO 11:59 ARE ELIGIBLE FOR BLOGATON. No reposts allowed.

Since, change is a versatile topic, if you have already written on change, its time to change the line of thought and think something else to change.

  1. You can submit ONLY ONE POST for this event irrespective of the number of blogs you maintain.
  2. The title of your post should be Change.
  3. You must justify this title with a complementary post. To make things easier, 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.
  4. 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.
  5. If you are having a cartoon blog, photo blog, painting blog etc, even you can participate with your piece of art complementing this title.
  6. 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.
  7. Other rules regarding the posting will be conveyed to you later. So kindly wait for that notification on 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.
So, you all have ample time to write it but you'll have to wait till Mar 5 to post it finally along with everyone else.

Please write your posts on time as the late entries will not be allowed to participate in the voting round (though the links will be added to the participants list).

So here it is then, the wait is over.
We run again, this time for a change.

Am off to get my brains racing for the topic, see you on 5th...
May the best blogatonic win.

P.s. Don't forget to give a loud shout out to #Blogaton on twitter
