Blogging Marathon # 71 – 3 Day Marathon for 4 weeks!


Sharing is caring!

For the first time ever, I left the blog without anything to talk about the whole of October!. So much so that I am yet to do the Roundup of my Anniversary Event as well. I was planning on the migration after Cooking 4 all Seasons was done. I thought it will be done quicker, however, it almost took the same time and I am still nowhere near to even start!

This announcement is for December 2016 BM Edition Themes. Time surely flies! A year seem to have so quickly passed.


Before going into the new themes, here are the links to some of the BM related pages.

The 2015 BM details can be found in the Blogging Marathon Page.

If you want to check out older BM details, check the BM Archives

If you are new and want to join us, check out the BM Guidelines and Rules

Since we have a month to prepare, please avoid doing last minute posting, prepare ahead and schedule, which should give you enough time to read the fellow participating blogger’s post in leisure.

I also decided I will be little more strict in handling late posts. I know real life sometimes becomes very tough to manage. However, if you know it is going to be so, please do not sign up. I will understand. But if you are signing up, then I expect you to be prompt in posting and reading fellow BM blogs.

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 the BM 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 blogger’s post is mandatory.

The subscription to the group will be on monthly basis.
