Sharing is caring!

We are back to the regular Blogging Marathon and I hope I have chosen interesting themes this edition as well.

For those of you who are landing here for the first time, then please check out these posts on Blogging Marathon, you can read about all the history, the thought process that’s gone in everything in one place in the BM#18 intro

For details on BM held every month, check out the Blogging Marathon page. Once I get all details I will be updating this page. Bloggers taking part in this marathon need to just link back to this page.
The entry is again by Sign ups and each theme will again have only 4 bloggers on first come first basis. 
And because of the new rules I will not be able to accept late sign ups as it will become extremely hard for me to manage otherwise. If you feel you want to do it, please decide ahead, else you can join later.
Commenting on the participating bloggers post is mandatory.
And subscription to the group will be monthly basis.

  • Mandatory reading and commenting on fellow participating member.
Each theme can be selected by four bloggers on first come first bases. 

Other rules will be mailed to the individuals.
Themes for BM # 41st will be the following:
Since having this theme is to make sure my Kid’s Delight event gets good entries, I thought it makes sense to have two themes based on the hosting time.
Kid’s Delight – Lunch box series (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)
Kid’s Delight – Kid’s Delight – Iron rich recipes for kids (17,18,19 and 24,25,26)
Please note Kid’s delight posts be it for the BM theme or the event, needs to be kid approved. Which means you get your kid, your young relatives or neighbors approve what you have made. Would surely appreciate a note on who liked it and their age group. This way we can tag it properly.
Another thing can be that you as a kid liked the particular dish. Else it will not be eligible for both the events.
Kid’s Delight –  Lunch box series (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)

This is hosted by Jayanthi, who is calling ideas for Kid friendly dishes that can be packed and sent for school.
