Blogathon Anyone For the New Year?

So Dreamy Mommy sent an email to a bunch of us asking if we would be interested in a blog marathon in January. I did one last January and it involved scheduled posting and writing on completely irrelevant stuff *rolls eyes* But me, being me, wants to take up new challenges in 2014, you know trying to be more enthused in life and all that jazz, so anyways, led by Dreamy Mommy, there is a blogathon which is planned. I am in, despite the fact that I will be travelling for a wedding to my state for four days, but hopefully should be scheduling posts for then πŸ™‚

Maybe we could come up with prompt words or something for the month to help you write posts. Even picture posts are allowed πŸ˜‰ for all you camera people, that would be easy no? and even recipes, and even writing about children, or cribbing about the weather, or whatever, basically anything under the sun, moon and stars, got the point eh?

Those of you wanting to get back to writing, revive the dormant blogs and the writing genes, go on and commit. And for those of you already writing, it would be great fun to do it together no? I promise it will be fun. And then look at it this way, you will have SO MUCH MORE TO READ Yay! so drop in a line to me will ya please?

Lets see how it goes. Tharani is in and so am I. Along with Dreamy Mommy. Who else wants to join in? Do let me know in the comments section and I will compile a list to send to Dreamy Mommy. The more the merrier eh?

    Count me in…..I write two blogs – one on food and one on the daughter…..is it ok to post on either of them?

  2. Oh yes, I am game for this one. It is just what the doctor ordered for my near-dormant blog. Have never done a blogathon before before, so don’t know whether I’ll make it to the finishing line, but I’ll try eh? πŸ™‚

  8. Jay says:

    Count me in too, R’s mom. I wanted to start on something I have not done before. This could just be it!

  9. Tharani says:

    I remember last year how exhausted we were after the blogging marathon and declared we are never going to do it again. But here we are πŸ™‚ Blogging is so addictive no? Glad you are in. I love reading you:)

  10. Bingo says:

  11. summerscript says:

    I am in….I may write about daily interesting and useful stuff like how to switch on a fan, how to divide rice equally so that you can eat all podi, paruppu, sambhar, rasam and curd rice without feeling like a overweight-paperweight πŸ™‚

    • R's Mom says:

      You can even write on 5 easy ways to trip on a saree, how to get your mother in law to massage your head and 10 easy ways to ensure your husband decides to pull his hair apart one by one..anything is welcome..you just join in babes πŸ™‚

  15. techie2mom says:

    How I wish i could do it too..

    • R's Mom says:

      Cant you try…cooking blog plus this one…wouldnt force you rey…I am sure you have tons going on right now!

      • techie2mom says:

        I can try..But i am not sure whether i’ll be able to continue. I may have to travel to Ahmedabad. This is Zini’s winter vacation time and also a time when she generally falls sick..
        But i’ll try to post everyday and if no major obstacles come i’ll try to do the marathon πŸ™‚

  16. Swaram says:

  18. Hey RM
    Want to revive my almost non existent blog….what better way than this😊 ……just wanted to know will there be any prompts to write on ?? Count me in….

  19. I did it last time too! It was tiring but super excited to do it again. Count me in!

  20. anisnest says:

    count me in lady!! I don’t know if I can make it till the end but I remember those beautiful memories of last year still and want to take part for the joy of it..

  21. shachi18 says:

    count me in your gang too? needed motivation and company so please help :)…looking forward to yours!

    btw, what I like about your blog, to the core of it, is the simplicity. Nothing fancy, presented as is. Genuineness, so rare to find these days. Equality, and sensitivity, on gender issues. A daughter who you adore and cherish (every one should have a daughter, really – I’m glad I have one :)). And life in Mumbai – a place where my husband was born and raised, a place which is my new home in India, but I can’t relate to it much as I’ve never lived there…so I like reading about Mumbai life.

    God bless you and yours…..have a happy, healthy, adventurous, and creative 2014!

  22. Smitha says:

    I am so tempted, RM! But I’m not so sure if I can do it. Let me see.. Do you think I can post on my blog as well as the book blog to make it count?
