Blogging Marathon # 61 - 3 Day Marathon for 4 weeks!

A very Happy New Year to all my readers!

Hope 2016 will bring in more exciting foods to explore and we have an all rounded foodie experience!

2015 was yet another wonderful year for the Blogging Marathon group and we can't stop to begin another year of celebrating the food that's essence of everything!

This announcement is for February 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

Now lets move on to the December month themes.

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.

And subscription to the group will be monthly basis.
