Three-Cheers for all the 41 Blog-a-Tonics. This is the first time we have more than 40 pariticipation entries in Blog-a-Ton Season 2.
Please follow the following rules while voting.

1. ONLY THOSE BLOG-A-TONICS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR VOTING (i.e., Contesting for votes and voting for others) WHO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THIS EVENT WITHIN THE STIPULATED TIME.

2. You can cast upto 3 votes or cheers as we call them, and of course you can not vote for yourself. In short, you are allowed to vote for one, two or three entries. All your votes will carry the same weightage. 3.  Your Voting Comment should start as follows:


I vote for -  1. XYZ; his/her post = XYZ-TITLE 2. DEF; his/her post = DEF-TITLE 3. PQR; his/her post = PQR-TITLE
Code:

I participated - <a href="YOUR POST LINK">YOUR POST LINK</a>
I vote for - 1. NAME OF THE FIRST BLOGATONIC YOU VOTE FOR; his/her postlink = <a href="HIS/HER POST LINK">HIS/HER POST LINK</a> 2. NAME OF THE SECOND BLOGATONIC YOU VOTE FOR; his/her postlink = <a href="HIS/HER POST LINK">HIS/HER POST LINK</a> 3. NAME OF THE THIRD BLOGATONIC YOU VOTE FOR; his/her postlink = <a href="HIS/HER POST LINK">HIS/HER POST LINK</a>

There is some specific logic behind the above code. So please fill the parameters highlighted in red as mentioned in the code only.

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

3. While voting for a Blog-a-Tonic, use his/her name as provided by him/her in his/her participation entry and not his/her profile name.

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

5. 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 winning entries. In case you vote separately, only the first comment will be taken into consideration.

Now coming to the other rules:
  • Voting ends at  08:00PM (IST) on  SUNDAY, AUGUST 21, 2011.
  • 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. 


The Votes will be discarded without any prior warning in case they are not sufficiently compatible with the rules. A Reminder - Have your number of participations reached 10??? Then you are eligible to be included into the List of Veteran Blog-a-Tonics.  Just drop a mail to "marhsal@blogaton.in" with the links to all your posts (or simply label all your BAT entries and send Marshal that single link).Remember, the time stamp of your comment can be at most 23:59 on August 21 and not 00:00 on August 22.  
Yours, Blog-a-Ton Co-Marshal, Someone is Special

    2. The Fool; his/her postlink = HIS/HER POST LINK
    3. Nidhi; his/her postlink = HIS/HER POST LINK


    Sadiya gets my vote because of her continued irreverence towards traditional stereotypes. She never bothers about the “expected” connotations from a title but gives it her trademark treatment of innocence, mirth and vitality. And yes, I am yet to read a post from her that wasn’t exuberant.
    The Fool has outdone himself in his tale of the tea boy going through a roller-coaster of experiences before realising his true calling. His agitated mind, juxtaposed with the equanimity of the sage, make for a delightful read.
    Nidhi, after reading her post, is a person i would NOT want to meet! The post was diabolically sadistic and guaranteed to make your hair stand on their ends! The real charm, though, was the matter-of-fact tone of presentation and the fluid build-up to the final revelation.
