BLOGATHON ANNOUNCEMENT – Part Deux

The response to my upcoming blogathon ~ slight name change ~ CLASSIC SYMBIOTIC COLLABORATIONS: The Star-Director Blogathon” has been so warmly supported I’m rather speechless. ( Who am I kidding…I can talk ’till the cows come home. ) I want to say thank you again for all who’re participating. I seem to have struck the Mother Lode ( …duly recognizing my own blog’s “needle-in-the-haystack” existence in the sandbox of the blogosphere ) of talented bloggers out there. 

I want to give you an easy-to-read roster of who has already signed up ( sans cluttery rules, guidelines and banners which you can find in my original announcement here. ) Alright, so I couldn’t resist posting the banners:

  SYMBIOTIC COLLABORATIONS ( Truffaut ) IISYMBIOTIC COLLABORATIONS ( Ford ) IISYMBIOTIC COLLABORATIONS ( Von Sternberg ) II

If you know any bloggers who might be interested in writing about their favorite star-director collaborations from the classic era, please send them to the comments section below or to that section on my original announcement ( here ). 

I’m going to make DECEMBER 19th, the cut-off time for submissions so I can concentrate on creating a pleasant presentation for my ‘thon when the event is in full swing and sway. ( You know how it is…first impressions and all ). If there are any other bloggers out there who are interested in joining…I’d love to have you. 

Thank you again!

Please check this directory for any updates. ( Listed alphabetically here. ) During the event, I will upload your posts as I receive them. Wait a second…am I the only blogger here with the hubris and audacity to put my own picture in my blog’s banner? I would say that’s character actress Theresa Harris sitting on my couch, but you guys are too smart for that wooden nickel to be pulled over your eyes:

  1. Can’t wait to take part in this blogathon, and to read about so many great partnerships!

    If it’s not too much trouble, could you change the image for my blog? I actually just updated my header to include my blog name; I know you had trouble identifying my blog haha, my fault!

  2. Theresa, what an awesome job you’ve done here! This looks great! You’re a lovely hostess. When do you want the content to be posted? I have the post completed, so I can go live whenever you say go. I’m so excited about reading these posts!

    • Hi there Tracey. You can send me the link whenever you wish. I can have it now, but my official blogathon won’t go live until Jan 23rd. Believe me, I’m dying to read yours and the rest of the bloggers’ posts. Have a great Thanksgiving! 🙂

  3. As far as hubris and audacity, I could match you, but I don’t have the intelligence to figure HOW to put my picture in the header. But that is indeed the back of my head on the sidebar. So we can add peculiar sense of humor to the mix.

  4. Really looking forward to this. I plan to participate, but I am having surgery in two weeks and we’ll see about recovery time. If my brain is fudge, then I may have to back out. Slim chance, but just wanted to let you know in case.

    • Thank you so much Ruth. I’m hoping folks like it. Can’t wait to host this thing. If you know any other bloggers who might like to participate ( Quiggy’s in ) please do let them know. And thanks for the feedback. Sometimes I feel like I’m out here in the wilderness. Thanx again!
