Blogging Marathon is a monthly event. Joining is through Signup for each month. Announcement is always made on the 1st of each month for the next month.
For example Announcement for Feb is done on Jan. Access to the group is given during the last week of Jan. If one does not do Mar, their subscription expires.
Announcing on 1st gives 30 days to prepare for the next edition. So it is decided that if any blogger does not post more than two days in a row, will not be qualified for the next edition.
Below are some rules to be followed:
Entry to BM group is by Signup.
