Happy birthday to me!
On Friday, April 27, I will turn a ripe old 57 years of age. Usually, I do some kind of gag post at my blog on that date to commemorate the occasion. But this year, I thought I’d up the ante with
Here is the subject matter I am looking for in this blogathon:
- The obvious choice — movies that were theatrically released in the U.S. or elsewhere in 1961. This can include live and animated short subjects as well as feature films. (I’m doing a Bugs Bunny cartoon myself!)
- Movie-related news from that year. Did a significant event take place in Hollywood in 1961 that you’d like to write about? Was one of your favorite actors born in 1961 or died in that year?
- If you have any other idea related to movies of 1961, let me know. If it’s not too outrageous, I’ll probably allow it.
- Sorry, no duplicate posts. Please check the list below (which will be updated regularly) to ensure that your idea is not already taken.
How Do I Join the Blogathon?
In the “Comments” section at the bottom of this blog, please leave your name, the URL of your blog, and the movie you are choosing to blog about. At the end of this blog entry are banners for the ‘thon. Grab a banner, display it on your blog, and link it back to this blog.
The blogathon will take place from Friday, April 27 through Sunday, April 29, 2018. When the opening date of the blogathon arrives, leave a comment here with a link to your post, and I will display it in the list of entries (which I will continually update up to the beginning of the ‘thon, so keep checking back!).
I will not be assigning particular dates to any blog posts. As long as you get your entry in by the end of the day on April 29, I will be satisfied. (That said, the earlier the better!)
Again, be sure to leave a comment below and grab a banner, and have fun with your blog entry! Here’s the line-up so far:
