The curtain closes on a wonderful edition of Blog-a-ton, the 56th one. We had 18 entries from 17 entrants this time. I would like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for participating! Do comeback and vote for the entries worth winning!

We had 17 blog-a-tonics enter in this edition within the stipulated time. Only those 17 Blog-a-Tonics are eligible for voting. So feel free to vote for your B-A-T 56 Favorites.

Click here to check the fellow Blog-a-Tonics who took part in this edition of Blog-a-Ton along with the direct links to their posts.

Three Cheers to all the Blog-a-Tonics.


Please follow the following rules while voting.

1. ONLY THOSE BLOG-A-TONICS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR VOTING (i.e., Contesting for votes and voting for others) WHO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THIS EVENT WITHIN THE STIPULATED TIME.

2. AS PER BLOGATON 3.0 GUIDELINES, THE NUMBER OF VOTES IS DETERMINED BY THE NUMBER OF ENTRIES. We have 17 entries this time. In this edition, you can cast upto 3 votes or cheers as we call them, and of course you can not vote for yourself. In short, you are allowed to vote for one, two, three, four OR five. All your votes will carry the same weightage.

3.  Your Voting Comment should be as follows:

I, BLOGGER NAME, participated. My Blog-a-ton 56 Entry Is Here: BLOGATON56 ENTRY LINK

I vote for:

1. BLOGATONIC 1 NAME: His/her entry is here: BLOGATONIC 1 ENTRY LINK
2. BLOGATONIC 2 NAME: His/her entry is here: BLOGATONIC 2 ENTRY LINK
3. BLOGATONIC 3 NAME: His/her entry is here: BLOGATONIC 3 ENTRY LINK

The voting format has been simplified for assisting you. Replace "BLOGGER NAME" by your name, and "BLOGATON56 ENTRY LINK" by the direct link to your BAT56 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 BAT56 Entry. Votes NOT IN THIS FORMAT will not be accepted.

For eg: A valid vote can look like this:

I, Vipul, participated. My Blogaton entry is here: http://vipulgrover.blogspot.com/2010/08/goodbye.html

I vote for the following:
1. Someone is Special: http://www.fewmiles.info/2015/10/the-secret.html
2. Leo: http://artofleo.com/2014/10/05/a-knot-in-time/
3. Amity: http://intelclub.blogspot.com/2010/10/train-of-thoughts.html



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 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  SUNDAY, October 18, 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 October 18, 2015 and not 23:00.

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

    I vote for:

    1. Viyoma: Her entry is here: http://vyoworld.blogspot.in/2015/10/secret-hidden-clues-or-revealing-hints.html
    I loved Viyoma's take on the prompt in making the word SECRET an acronym and writing an interesting plot around it.
    2. Gauri K: Her entry is here: http://survivaloftheoptimist.blogspot.in/2015/10/paper-boats.html
    There was this pleasant feel about Gauri's poem. It gave me hope.
    3. Siddesh Kabe: His entry is here: http://www.sidoscope.co.in/2015/10/short-story-winds-of-change.html
    Siddesh's time-travel post was intriguing in itself . However, the twist at the end of the story was a highlight for me.
