Happy anniversary…to me!
Today marks the third anniversary of the creation of this blog. Usually on this anniv date, I write some pseudo-profound piece about how many followers I have, what I’ve learned through the journey of blogging, etc. But this year, I decided to instead pass the riches on to you, with your chance to participate in the
MY FAVORITE MOVIE THREESOME BLOGATHON!
Rules for the Blogathon
For this ‘thon, I’d like you to write about your favorite trio of movie characters or actors. Please understand that I don’t want three separate entries about actors (e.g., Cary Grant, Clark Gable, and James Stewart). I’d like you to consider:
- trios that are known as collective groups (such as the Marx Brothers);
- three actors who worked together in only a single movie (such as Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Bacall, and Betty Grable in How to Marry a Millionaire); or
- three continuing characters in a film series (such as Luke, Leia, and Han in the Star Wars films).
After you choose your trio, describe why they appeal to you so much. Take any approach. You could write about why you find The Marx Brothers hilarious as a group, or you could write about one of your favorite films of theirs. The same goes for trios who appeared in one-off films. Do you want to describe the chemistry between Marilyn, Lauren, and Betty, or would you rather write about how charming their three characters are? As long as you include a movie trio and why you like them, the sky’s the limit!
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 trio 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, July 28, through Sunday, July 30, 2017. 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 July 30, I will be satisfied. (That said, the earlier the better!) Duplicate entries about the same trio are welcome as well.
Again, be sure to leave me a comment and grab a banner, and have fun with your blog entry!
