Blogging Marathon # 77 – 3 Day Marathon for 4 weeks!

bmlogo

We have just finished the April Mega Blogging Marathon with ABC Bake around the World. Will be putting the recap tomorrow. It’s been one fantastic month long baking and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s time to get back to regular weekly edition.

Meanwhile here’s the announcement for June 2017.

PS: Please give me a couple of days to reply to your emails, as I am not in on May 1st.

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 – Frozen Foods (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 – Summer coolers (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)

The 1st and 2nd weeks of June will be hosted by Amara. With Summer being at its peak, she wants Summer Coolers! She will be announcing the event on her blog by 15th May, please await her post for more specific rules.

  1. I am not a blogger but I love to cook all manner of delicious dishes from the Indian Subcontinent.. I love Indian recipes for biscuits, street foods, creamy desserts and homemade meals especially with spinach. I’m not Indian, I am from Scotland, and I am fascinated with all things Indian, the culture scenery of the country, but most of all the food. I love to cook from scratch, and I pin many of your recipes on Pinterest, and go back to my boards to refer to them again and again.
    I wish all of you talented cooks with such lovely blogs every success in this Blogging Marathon.

    1. Dear Jaipura, thank you so much for taking time to write and express your thoughts. I am so glad to know about your interest in Indian Cuisine. I wish and hope we help in some way to bring the different Indian cuisines to world through our blogs. Thanks for dropping and please do visit again.
