Blogging Marathon # 64 – 3 Day Marathon for 4 weeks!

Sharing is caring!

I can’t believe I am announcing already for May 2016! Where have all the days disappeared! I know mine were spent trying to cook for the April Mega BM that’s going to start shortly and with kids school and vacation.

Anyway, let me go ahead with the announcement for May 2016. 

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 bloggers post is mandatory.
The subscription to the group will be on monthly basis.

As the theme says bake yeasted bread in different shapes. It can be sweet or plain or savory. However, the mandatory condition is, it should be yeasted and shaped.
