UPDATE: Visit the actual blogathon post to access the entries.
When I posted the 4th anniversary celebratory post on this blog in November I made it a point to say I was swearing off blogathons in 2016. So, in keeping true to my word I’m announcing the third concurrent blogging event I’m co-hosting. You see, when writers and bloggers and fellow fans whose work and words I admire reach out to me I simply can’t say no as is the case here. Theresa Brown, blogger at CineMaven’s Essays From the Couch and a celebrity in our circles invited me to co-host a blogathon with her several months ago, but when she recently mentioned the intended topic, The films of 1932, I simply couldn’t resist and imagine you won’t be able to either.
Hot and Bothered is the order of the day and debauchery the sin of choice so turn on your fans and join us for this titillating event!
Given not only the Hotness of the topic at hand, but also its simplicity there’s really nothing to explain. Pick your title from the list of films released in 1932 (here’s a wikipedia list to get you started) and let us know!
Rules and Regulations:
- No duplicates or re-prints of past posts will be accepted. 1932 was a pretty big year for
movies so you should have no trouble picking a unique entry. Let’s represent 1932!! Chosen topics will be updated daily on this blog and on CineMaven’s Essays. You might do well by submitting a first and second choice just in case. First come, first serve.
- You can submit your film choice in the comments section below, or over at CineMaven’s site.
- Please include your blog’s NAME and URL along with your film(s) of choice.
- Theresa and I will take turns hosting our blogathon. I will host all entries for Saturday, July 9th and Theresa will host those submitted for Sunday, July 10th. Let us know if you have a date preference. Otherwise we’ll split duties as entries come in.
- Help us spread the word by including one of the event banners included in this post on your blog and in your submission. All banners were designed by Theresa. I’m along for the ride.
- HAVE FUN!
