Now coming to the other rules:
  • Voting ends at  20:00 (IST) on  SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2013.
  • 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 for three of them. 
  • A THOUGHT: Be it Elections or Blog-a-Ton, it is your duty to vote, because you have the power to select the winner, so please DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE.

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 "marshal@blogaton.in" and "leonnyes@gmail.com" 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 19:59 on February 10, 2013 and not 20:00 on February 10, 2013.  

Let the best entries win this edition..!
Poetically Yours,
Co-Marshal,

  3. I wrote my piece ages ago and forgot to link yesterday :( Great to see the easy way to vote now! :D All the best to all bloggers! I must ask Solitary Writer or Shashi ji to remind me, as they're the first ones always to link. Although, I'm not eligible to vote this time, I must speak out my favourites: Antara, Dilip Patel, Panchali, and Richi Baidwan.

    First two I chose cos of the nice visual effects they brought into their posts. The third for the subtle humour and the fourth was touching and the fifth I simply liked nicely worded the poem.
    I liked the others too..I think all were great :-)

    I vote for:

    1. Plate: http://thisgreenplate.blogspot.in/2013/02/blog-ton-36-and-then-there-were-none.html

    I think what you did was a fantastic gesture to speak of your allegiance to BAT. I hope this inspires more people to participate even if they don’t have the time to write something up on their own.

    2. Odyzz: http://odizzey.wordpress.com/2013/02/03/and-then-there-were-none-blog-a-ton/

    I think this was a beautifully written poem bringing out the subtle nuances of life’s little joys and worries.

    3. Panchali: http://panchalibolchi.blogspot.in/2013/02/memories-in-time-and-place.html

    I have experienced very many similar situations wherein you want to write a book yet you do not have the words to finish a single sentence.

    4. The Whitescape: http://thewhitescape.wordpress.com/2013/02/03/a-bowl-of-sole-curry-and-a-platter-of-fish/

    I love food! I believe this was something that a lot many of us could experience and I still vividly remember the scenes from the post about the woman seeking something to call her own/going out to give the city a shot/seeking a temple/getting into the restaurant – Most definitely something that I will remember.

    5. Amit: http://theshittanalysis.blogspot.in/2013/02/suns-shining-somewhere.html

    Again this was a write up that I could relate with; something that is true and was expressed very well by Amit.

  14. I am sorry. I was not able to read any entries due to poor connectivity (I was in remote areas, where even a good road is a luxury!!) - so, can't cheer anyone of you. Will read all the entries once I am back in the zone!
