So is truth really stranger than fiction? We'll Blog-a-ton to find out!

So we've voted over the past week, and 24 of you (including one late voter) have come here and supported a favorite topic. That's nice. I wish to see all of you in ten days time for our 37th edition of Blog-a-ton, to be on March 3rd, 2013.

DATE for BLOG-a-TON 37:
MARCH 03, 2013

TOPIC for BLOG-a-TON 37:
Truth is stranger than fiction

This is how voting went over the last week for the 15 phrases given as options.

Our dream is to have a hundred participants come in one day and take part in an edition of Blog-a-ton. Let's hope we can do it in this edition! Thanks for the support as always.

The rules for Blog-a-ton 37 are:

  • You can SUBMIT ONLY ONE POST irrespective of the number of blogs that you have.
  • You can give your post any title that you wish to.
  • The phrase "Truth is stranger than fiction" must be a part of your post.
  • You must justify this phrase with your post. You can do it with any type of post (i.e. Poetry, Fiction, 55 fiction, dialogue, Essay... etc). You can also choose to make it serious, humorous, tragic, romantic... whatever setting you'd love to give.
  • You can write in any language as well, but since most Blog-a-tonics would prefer English as their language of communication, we'd suggest that too, so your post reaches a wider audience, and help you when it comes to Blog-a-ton 37 voting time.
  • The other rules (viz. header & footer to put in your post, the way to submit it on March 3 etc.) will be conveyed to you on March 2nd. So kindly wait for that notification then 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.

The winners of Blog-a-ton 37 will be featured on the Blog-a-ton Facebook Page cover photograph.

We're giving you ten days to write your post this time, as opposed to the six previously. So you have plenty of time to write it. Please publish the post only on March 03 and not before. The aim of Blog-a-ton is to have many people posting on the same theme on the same day, and that day is March 3rd 2013 for Blog-a-ton 37!!

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,
