We may be knee deep in The July Five, but I’m already thinking about August. Long-time readers of the site know I haven’t hosted a blogathon since the Universal Backlot Blogathon a few years back. In reading Twitter, I noticed long-time Summer Under the Stars blogathon hosts, the lovely Jill Blake of The Black Maria and Michael Nazarewycz of Scribe Hard, weren’t doing a month-long tribute. With that hole obviously needing filling
I put my foot in my mouth I stepped up to the plate and volunteered to host this year’s month-long blogathon! So between August 1st and 31st I will be hosting the Summer Under the Stars blogathon.
The fine folks at Warner Archive will be giving me several DVDs and Blu-rays to give away to blog participants and #TCMParty friends. I’ll give exact details on the 30th but that’s all the more reason for you to sign up!
What do I need from you right now, your commitment. If you’re interested in participating, shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a comment below with your blog name and a way to get in touch. On July 30th-31st I’ll be announcing the participating blogs, any and all prizes offered (as well as rules), as well as other activities being put-on. Since this is Summer Under the Stars feel free to write on as many actors/actresses, films as you want. As for the content, the sky’s the limit. If you want to review a film, write a profile on the star, create a Top 10 list, so long as it’s related to the person on that day, you’re golden. I know this will be a great event and I appreciate everyone willing to devote their time!
