THE FREE FOR ALL BLOGATHON

Hi there…and a very HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and your family. Wishing you all the best in 2018. 

https://cinemavensessaysfromthecouch.wordpress.com/2018/01/05/the-free-for-all-blogathon/

In the world of classic film blogathons, there are sooooo many themes and topics covered.

           

It’s pretty tough to come up with something unique that bloggers might WANT to join. They’re a pretty busy lot maintaining their own blogs. So I came up with this idea I hope might appeal to them.

 

 

Bloggers, with this theme, you’re invited to write about ANYthing your heart desires. Now here’s the drill ~ which I know you know by heart ~ I’m making it a one day event and will accept entries any time except after March 3rd.

  • Please leave a comment here about what you’d like to write about
  • Please use my fancy schmancy banner in your piece 
  • Please let me have the name and link of your blog and use this link in your piece:
    https://cinemavensessaysfromthecouch.wordpress.com/2018/01/05/the-free-for-all-blogathon/ which will serve as a directory for all the participating entries from your fellow bloggers ( Thank you! )
  • WhenEVER your piece is done, whether it’s ON March 3rd or way BEFORE March 3rd, please send me your link in the comments section below.  

I know you could be doing anything else in your life besides my blogathon. So if you do submit something, I’ll be happy to spotlight your worK. Thanks again!

Again…a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  1. Cool idea, count me in. I want to do Seven Decades, Seven Great Science Fiction Films, looking at one film from each decade from the 1950s to the 2010s. Don’t hold me to this list, but I think it’s going to be Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), Planet of the Apes (1968), Rollerball (1975), They Live (1988), Twelve Monkeys (1995), Moon (2009), and The Shape of Water (2017).

  2. The basic title will be “Movies You Never Knew Existed (and which you may wish you STILL never knew existed)”. It will contain at least two (and maybe three) movies culled from my collection of cheapjack drive-in fare. I can absolutely guarantee that no one else will pick them, although I can’t actually guarantee that no one will have ever heard of them prior to my writing. I’m still in debate on which ones, as yet. How’s that for an idea?

    • If that’s your idea, Quigs…it’s a swell one. I’ll put you down for that. Submit your link here in my comments Section whenever you’re ready. When you decide on your films, if you want…you can let me know privately at my e-mail ( cinemavenessays@gmail.com ). Thanks so much for participating.

      • I’ll send you an email when I get the choices nailed down. I’d personally prefer this one to be a surprise that no one knows before hand. They will definitely be odd, I already have one definite entry that I’m sure no one except oddballs like me has ever heard of much less seen.

      • I kind of figured you wanted it to be a surprise. I’m creating banners…and if you send me a private e-mail, I can create a banner for you for my directory, and won’t reveal it until the day of the event. Would that work for you? If not, if you want it to be a surprise to me too..that’ll be fine. Let me know how we should play it.

  3. This is a really unique, fascinating idea for a blogathon! In a way, it’s so broad that it’s hard to think of a topic! Once you begin to think, though, you can’t stop.

    I am Tiffany Brannan, the authoress of the Pure Entertainment Preservation Society (https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com). My sister, Rebekah, and I are going to collaborate on an article about “Casablanca” from 1942. She is going to focus on the story and character analysis, while I am going to focus on the difference between the original story and the movie, specifically the self-regulation. We are planning on calling the article “‘Casablanca’ from 1942: From ‘Rick’s Place’ to a Classic.”

    By the way, we would like very much for you to participate in our upcoming blogathon, The Singing Sweethearts Blogathon, which will be Rebekah’s first real participation in PEPS. This blogathon, which will be hosted around Valentine’s Day, is celebrating the famous singing team Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy. You can read the rules of the blogathon at https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2017/12/20/ring-the-assembly-bell-here-comes-the-singing-sweethearts-blogathon/. If you are available, I hope you’ll join us in honoring this brilliant team and the holiday of love!

    Yours Hopefully,

    Tiffany Brannan

    • Holy Cow!! What a great idea. I’m putting you down for it. Do you know what scores or composers you want to tackle? ( If you do… would you please, send me an e~mail on your choices? Send it to cinemavenessays@gmail.com ). Thanks Debbie for joining in. Hmmm…Hermann, Webb, Bernstein, Korngold men who can break your heart or make you climb the heights…
