Blog mela nominations please!

Blog mela nominations!

Yes, the next Blogmela is going to be right here, on Balancing Life. So don’t be shy, and nominate liberally. I’m looking forward to putting this together, as I’ll get to read some posts from a number of excellent blogs that I don’t normally get time to visit.

The rules are the usual:

  1. All nominated posts should be written between (and inclusive of) Friday, 26th August, and Thursday, 1st September.

  2. Go ahead and nominate your own posts, or interesting posts you’ve found, or posts by your pet parakeet…….ideally nominate posts with an Indic theme/ relevance to India, but this is a flexible rule.

  3. I will also include posts that I come across, if they fit in to the mela.

  4. I will try to include a majority of the posts nominated (unless it doesn’t fit with the theme/flow of the mela. This will NOT be a statement on the quality of that post).

  5. Please nominate in the comments section here. If you do need to email your nominations, send them to sunil{dot}laxman{at}gmail{dot}com.

  6. Posts nominated after midnight (PST) Thursday, 1st September won’t be accepted.

  7. The mela will be up some time on Saturday.
