Hello, my pals and gals!
Most exciting news I've ever had the pleasure to announce!
I'm hosting my first blogathon!
Five minutes of sheer excitement later, I must let everyone know that I will not be hosting this alone. I have the best co-hosts anyone could wish for and those are Natalie, from In The Mood and Rianna from Frankly, My Dear! Now, we all know and love these swell gals, and there's no need for me to reassure you yet again that anything these two touch is worth keeping an eye out for.
Having said that, here are the rules of the game!
This blogathon is very simple. It came from the idea that we in the classic movie community suffer of a problem not many have to encounter: Our favorite stars are dead. There's no use denying it or alienating yourself from the sad reality that most of the people who were a part of or influenced the Golden Era are long deceased. Therefore, we all want to say some things to them and can't, like how much we adore them, how much they've influenced us, how important they still are to the world and how they will never be forgotten.
However, just because they can't hear us, doesn't mean we can't still say it, does it?
So, this blogathon will consist of just that. Write a letter to your favorite dead star. What did you always want to tell them? How did they change your life? What's your favorite thing about them? How did they impact the world and what legacies did they leave? Write about anything you like, as long as it's addressed to your favorite dead star. Pretend they can hear you: It's your chance!
Now, in order to participate in this, the procedure is very simple: Comment below to enter yourself! Just say I'm SO AND SO, my blog is SO AND SO and I will be writing a letter to SO AND SO. You will be automatically entered.
You have a month and a half to open up your heart to your favorite dead star. By the time you're done writing, publish it in your blog and send the link to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to add your blog name and the star you're writing to on the subject line, as to make our lives easier :) On the days mentioned above in October, we will be posting everyone's articles. As the dates approach, we will reveal who will host each day.
Pretty exciting to me!
Now, last things last, if you'll be so kind as to choose one of our AWESOME banners and put it on your sidebar, to let everyone know that you are swell enough to participate in our blogathon, we'd thank you a million. Here we go:
And, if you like a lil' Technicolor, my favorite:
Sounds like a plan? Let's all join in and make this Blogathon a beautiful tribute to the stars that can't be forgotten. Let's show the world how much we cherish their memory, how important they still are and will always be. Do it as if they were watching.
'Cause, I don't know, maybe they are.
