Universal Backlot Blogathon: Friday’s Contributors

It’s started!  My first ever blogathon and one devoted to 100 years of Universal Studios films!  I’ll be putting up a post all weekend with the days contributors as their work goes live.  You can click the website links which will take you straight to their post!  If a link doesn’t work please return and try again later (I didn’t set a specific time period, just the day in general so some links might not be active till later in the day at the bloggers discretion).  In light of the blogathon both Journeys in the Disney Vault and the Golden Age on the Silver Screen will return the next week.  I’ll be posting up videos of the studio tours throughout the years during the weekend.

Here are Friday’s amazing contributors!  Check out their sites and leave them comments!  Please and thank you!  Also, all contributors can be found at the Universal Backlot Blogathon bar at the top of this site.

  1. Just a note – I read all entries posted for this day for this great event. Tried to comment on each and couldn’t with only two exceptions. Great posts all around! Can’t wait for subsequent days’ entries.


      • Great topic and some incredible entries! One of the few blogathons where I actually know every single topic/film chosen with the exception of the tours you describe. Which, by the way, make my mouth water. HAVE TO get there soon to see for myself!

      • I got inspired to watch some new movies after this, particularly finishing up seeing all the classic horror films. I HIGHLY recommend the tour, it’s fantastic!
