Rules and Reminder for Blog-a-Ton 25

Publish the post on 4th March, 2012 anytime between 0000 hrs and 2359 hrs (IST)!

Date for Blog-a-Ton : 4th MARCH, 2012

As you already know, the topic for Blog-a-Ton 25 has been finalised as:

WHEN JOURNEY MEANT MORE THAN DESTINATION

Hello friends. I am publishing a post on this blog after a long time. After conducting 17 BAT's over 17 months since Jul, 2009, I handed over the reign to other volunteers. Saravana and Vinay have been marshaling the event selflessly for quite sometime. I am happy that BAT has finally been revived and we are conducting the silver edition together.

Please follow these rules while publishing your post and thereafter:
  • The title of your post should be  When Journey Meant More Than Destination

    Since there is an ambiguity between the rules in Topic Declaration and Rules and Reminder post, this time you are allowed to title the post as you wish. Even if you have entered already with the title, ‘When Journey Meant More Than Destination’, you can very well change the title and leave a comment within the stipulated time or simply leave as it is. Decide and ACT! Sorry for the inconvenience caused. Co-Marshal – Saravana.

  • The post should start with this code. Just copy the following HTML code and paste to your post in Edit HTML mode:

    <div style="text-align: justify;">
    <blockquote>
    This post has been published by me as a part of the <b>Blog-a-Ton 25</b>; the Silver Edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following <a href="http://blogaton.in/"><b>Blog-a-Ton</b></a>. The topic for this month is 'When Journey Meant More Than Destination'.
    </blockquote>
    </div>
  • The post should end with the following code.  Just copy the following HTML code and paste to your post in Edit HTML mode:

    <div style="text-align: justify;">
    <blockquote>
    The <b>fellow Blog-a-Tonics</b> who took part in this Blog-a-Ton and links to their respective <b>posts</b> can be checked <a href="http://www.blogaton.in/2012/03/rules-and-reminder-for-blog-ton-25.html"><b>here</b></a>. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following <b><a href="http://blogaton.in/">Blog-a-Ton</a>.</b></blockquote>
    </div>

  • Publish the post on 4th March, 2012 anytime between 0000 hrs and 2359 hrs (Indian Standard Time)
  • Use the following code to provide direct link to your post.
<a href="ADDRESS OF YOUR POST">YOUR NAME - When Journey Meant More Than Destination</a> 

It will look like this: Vipul Grover - When Journey Meant More Than Destination and will link to your post.

Its the Silver Edition, so the marshals thought of some special rules
  • How about some more Silver BATOMS to celebrate Silver BAT? So, if the number of participants crosses the 50 mark then you can see more Blog-a-Tonics being crowned.
  • In addition, there will be a special incentive for the blogger who refers maximum number of new Blog-a-Tonics to this edition, the minimum being three. You will be featured on Blog-a-Ton Page (FB) for a month (till the next edition). 
  • In case you do refer someone, please ask them to leave the participation entry comment in this format, ‘YOUR NAME - When Journey Meant More Than Destination ~ REF BY (BLOGGER NAME)’ to make our job easy.

Please follow this rule to ensure easy navigability to your post.
        •  Use your complete name to prevent any confusion and mix up with other bloggers.
        • Remember, you can not post more than ONE entry.  
        • In case you post your link after the stipulated time, then your submission will not be considered for voting. 
        • Return between 5th March 00:01 IST and 12th March 18:00 IST to vote for your favourite post. A separate notification for the same will be posted upon the conclusion of the event. So do not vote till then. Just enjoy reading the various entries, keeping in mind your favourite but worth-winning ones.

        DO NOT USE THE COMMENTS SECTION OF THIS POST FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE. If there are any queries, ask them in the comments section of previous post.

        ...HAPPY SILVER EDITION !......
