The voting format has been simplified for assisting you. Replace "BLOGGER NAME" by your name, and "BLOGATON55 ENTRY LINK" by the direct link to your BAT55 Entry. Likewise, for the votes, replace "BLOGATONIC 1 NAME" by the name of the entrant (as used in his/her participation entry) and "BLOGATONIC 1 ENTRY LINK" by the direct link to that blogatonic's BAT55 Entry.

4. While voting for a Blog-a-Tonic, use his/her name as provided by him/her in his/her participation entry and not his/her profile name.

5.  Post your vote in the comments section of this post.

6. All your votes should be posted in a single comment. So, take your time - go through all posts - only then decide your one or two or three or four or five winning entries. In case you vote separately, only the first comment will be taken into consideration.

Now coming to the other rules:
  • Voting ends at  23:59 (IST) on  SUNAY, June 21, 2015.
  • 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 Gerneral 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 or 25??? Then you are eligible to be included into the List of Veteran Blog-a-Tonics.  Just drop a mail to "pendownmythought@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 23:59 on June 21, 2015 and not 00:00 on June 22, 2015.  


May the best entries in this edition win..!
Poetically Yours,
Marshal,
Sarav

  6. I, VINAY LEO R. , PARTICIPATED.

    MY BLOG-A-TON 55 LINK: http://artofleo.com/2015/06/14/paradise/

    MY VOTES IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER TO:

    1. SIMRAN - HER BAT LINK: http://myfriendshipsimran.blogspot.in/2015/06/rain-rejoice.html
    2. KHUSHI - HER BAT LINK: http://khushizdiary.blogspot.in/2015/06/lets-get-drenched.html
    3. CIFAR SHAYAR - HIS BAT LINK: http://cifarshayar.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-monsoon-pain.html
    4. NIVEDITA CHIRANTAN - HER BAT LINK: http://randammadness.blogspot.in/2015/06/one-summer-afternoon.html
    5. VIDHYA - HER BAT LINK: http://homemess.blogspot.in/2015/06/rain-rain-stay-while.html

    I liked SIMRAN's story because it was simple and sweet. KHUSHI's story tugged at the heartstrings and was well written.

    To craft poetry in raindrop shapes was amazing. That's why I give CIFAR SHAYAR a vote.

    A family understanding each other with the rain was a different take. NIVEDITA did that and did it nicely.

    VIDHYA showed how perspectives on rain changed with age, and also how elders are ignored.


    There were others who get mentions. MEGHA MALIK who tried erotica, BHAVYA whose story I loved but for the end, VIBHUTI who returned to BAT after ages etc.

    Glad to have participated in this BAT :)

    I loved each and every post. How monsoon brought out the best in our blogaton writers. Enjoyed reading each one of them.

    2 special mention:
    Megha Malik: for having the courage to pen down an erotica with such finesse and you ensured that it stays erotic only and doesn’t turn vulgar. Kudos, Megha!

    Gunjan: When I finished reading your post I obviously envied you.  How on earth did you think of this amazing concept? Brilliant! Loved how your stories were intertwined with a rainbow, and one passed the baton to another, seamlessly. 

    Warm Regards,
    Khushboo/Khushi
