2015 Summer Under the Stars Blogathon


Below the cut you’ll find all the blogs currently scheduled to participate and the given days they’ll be posting. If you’re interested in participating, and want to win some great prizes, feel free to leave a comment below, email or Tweet me, or just write something and send me a link when it’s published. Also, if you don’t currently have a blog, I am willing to host posts emailed to me. In order to give as many stars love as possible, if you currently see a star has people writing on them, please consider writing about someone else. (That’s not a mandatory rule. If you’re planning to write on multiple days, feel free to mix and match between uncovered topics and covered ones.) I will be updating this list all the way daily throughout the month, posting links as they come in. So if you want to know what everyone’s doing, be sure to check back here. I’ll be making this post sticky throughout the month so it’ll always be at the top. Here’s to a great blogathon!

  1. I’m so pleased that you’ve kept this going! I’d definitely like to write about the sublime and underrated Mae Clarke, perhaps a general piece on her or a write-up on one of the films showing that day, not sure yet (and I might be tempted to do a review of one of the Douglas Fairbanks Jr. movies showing as well, if I have the time in August). Thanks!

    • Yay! I was hoping Mae would get some attention! I’ll put you down under Mae Clarke for now and if you end up doing something on Fairbanks just let me know!

  2. Hey Kristen! Can I cover Mae Clarke? Also, are there rules about whether these posts supposed to strictly highlight the actors or is it something where we should go more in-depth into a particular film? I’m good with whatever but wanted to make sure. 🙂

    • Hey Meredith. You’re definitely welcome to write about the lovely Mae! I would like some highlights on the actor, at least mentioning conveying some reason why TCM would honor them with that film. Outside of that, feel free to go as in-depth as you’d like!

      • Cool! I have to say I’m not really that familiar with her but she interests me and I could make this a learning process + tell everyone else about her at the same time. I would love to take the challenge. I’ll go for it. Thanks, Kristen!

  3. I just discovered this blogathon and I’m super excited! I’d love to write about Fred Astaire, Debbie Reynolds, and Gary Cooper. (I was going to try and cover the undeclared people, but I know zero to very little about them. Sorry!) My blog is Love Letters to Old Hollywood, which can be found at

    • Hi Michaela, still plenty of time to get involved! I’ll put you down for all three. Please be sure to read the newly posted rules page. Thanks for joining!

  4. Fashionably late to the star-studded party, but please could I join in with a piece about Patricia Neal? Probably something examining her career and her legacy… thank you! 🙂
