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

From 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.

Kid’s Delight – Chocolate Dishes (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)
Kid’s Delight – Easter Food (17,18,19 and 24,25,26)

Please note all entries for Kid’s Delight theme have to be kid approved. The dish can be either approved by your own kid, your young relatives, neighbors or even something that you enjoyed as a kid. Do remember to mention the age group of the kid, so that it becomes easy for others.

Kid’s Delight – Chocolate Dishes (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)

The 1st and 2nd weeks of March will be hosted by Kalyani. With the theme being Chocolate, I know she will be flooded with entries! She will be announcing the event on her blog by 15th February, please await her post for more specific rules.

Kid’s Delight –  Easter Food (17,18,19 and 24,25,26)

Are you Pudding me?

Well, I loved that statement and the dishes that can be tagged as Pudding. For more ideas check wiki

Thalis / Spreads

I know I am obsessed with Thalis, and I hope many will bring in Thalis. All Indian States have their own specific Thalis. However, I am fine with spreads from different countries as well.

Sauces and Preserves

This can be sauces or preserves from any country.

Quick and Delicious Stir-Fries

As the name says, please make it quick. It can be low cal, low fat or even simple veggies that are just assembled with a quick stir! It can be a typical Indian Saute or a Western roast.

Festivals of the month.

As part of my new year things to learn, I decided we could pick up festivals during the month and showcase. It’s your choice to do Indian or Global. However please focus on festivals happening during March. I can think of Ugadi, Gudi Padwa, Ram Navami. Please enrich with global as well.

Swedish Dishes

Let’s explore Sweden during March. I leave it to you to decide what course you want to do.

Special Theme: Bookmarked

Sticking to our regular Bookmark theme, you get to do dishes of your own if you have done first 3 weeks.  So do 3 weeks, pick up this 4th fourth of your own choice. It can be anything you bookmarked or your own.

Please spread the details if you want your friends to be part of this marathon.
Let’s gear up for another nonstop blogging!
