Is this a special edition?
May be? It is? Or?
If it is a special edition, what’s so special?
Our Marshal Vipul’s Birthday (July 17)or our Marshal Leo’s Birthday (August 18) or the host?
Mmmm of course, the first two is special for us but why am I going mad here?
Let’s celebrate the birthday of…
OMG! Blog-a-Ton is aging three now! Wow! Exciting!
On 5th July 2009, Blog-a-Ton was born, a misnomer of the word Blogathon and on 1st August 2009, our first edition was hosted by our Marshal Vipul Grover and after 17 editions, he willingly took a break. Our Ravan and few others hosted initially, later Leo and I took the responsibility on our shoulders to march forward and to achieve our dream! The dream is having 100 entrants in a single edition!
Can we make it possible in this edition? Can we read 100 entrants this time? I agree, we are not giving away any prizes or gift vouchers but we are giving a Golden platform; a platform preferred by passionate writers!
Some of our BATOM’s are now published authors and they have proudly said that Blog-a-Ton helped them a lot! Some write because of BAT, some breathe for BAT, and that’s what Blog-a-Ton is!
I love numbers and I’ve been known to cherish stats a lot. So far, in 29 Editions, we have read 1118 Official Entries; that’s an average of 39 Entries. We have 36 GOLD BATOMS, 19 SILVER BATOMS, 11 BRONZE BATOMS and many more to come. Our Official Followers count is heading towards the magical four-digit number and we are more than five hundred member family on Facebook!
Do you want to know more numbers that are magical?
I love to share more - Brijender Singh of Brijender(in a row) and Leo of I Rhyme Without Reason has won Three GOLD BATOM, Leo of I Rhyme Without Reason has won Three SILVER BATOM and Shilpa Nair of Servings of Mania has won Two Bronze BATOM, the most number of wins under the respective categories and In overall, Leo of I Rhyme Without Reason has won SIX BATOM in total! Keep Winning!

- We have changed the format ONLY for this BAT.
- In place of a topic, we will have a common image - the image can be sketch, painting or photographs! to write upon.
- The participants will have to take inspiration from this image and write their posts.
- Each member can suggest only one image.
- The image should be inspiring enough so that more and more Blog-a-Tonics can participate.
- While suggesting provide a direct link to the image.
- Moreover, ensure that there are no copyright issues related to the image. You should also provide the source of the image below your suggestion. PS: The sketch, painting or photographs can be yours or your relatives - an opportunity to showcase the talent!
- If you like any suggestion, VOTE for it (by giving the name of the person who has suggested it or by replying to their comments) rather than giving a new suggestion.
- In case you have already suggested an image but find some subsequent suggestion better than yours, you are allowed to vote for it. But this can be done only once.
