Please go through the following rules before suggesting or voting

  • We have changed the format ONLY for this BAT.
  • In place of a general topic, we will have a phrase (3 - 8 words at the max), say for eg., "Life is a roller coaster ride!" or "Love makes life beautiful!" or any to write upon.
  • The participants will have to take inspiration from the phrase and write their posts including the same.
  • Each member can suggest only one suggestion.
  • The suggestion should be inspiring enough so that more and more Blog-a-Tonics can participate.
  • 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 one but find some subsequent suggestion better than yours, you are allowed to vote for it. But this can be done only once.
  • Don't criticize another's suggestion if you do not like it, kindly give a better suggestion..
  • Give your suggestions and votes in the comments section of this post. 
  • Do not embolden your comment using HTML bold tag.
  • Please keep these points in mind to make my job easier. 
  • PS: I reserve the right to discard any suggestion in case if it is found inappropriate.

What’s more?

Hmm you have to wait for some more days.. Also,


  • All the participants fan page will be featured with a short intro about their blog here.
  • There will be special incentive for the blogger who refers maximum number of Blog-a-Tonics to this edition. He\She will be featured on official Blog-a-Ton Page. If you refer someone or did refer them already in earlier editions, please ask them to specify your name in the code, which will be provided in Rules and Reminder Post! To consider a referral, the Blog-a-Tonics should debut in this edition or they should have participated in only two Blog-a-Ton editions or less than that!


Encourage your fellow bloggers to participate in this edition. You can share this post on your various social networking profiles through the ShareThis widget present at the bottom of this post.

Looking forward to a good Blog-a-Ton again.
Poetically Yours,
Co-Marshal,
Someone is Special
