It’s the end of the world as we know it, and we feel fine. In fact, we feel like blogging about it in…
THE END OF THE WORLD BLOGATHON!
Along with my blogging colleague Quiggy at The Midnite Drive-In, we are looking for blogs about movies with apocalyptic themes. Specifically, we’d like you to write about a movie (or movies) in which a plot or subplot is the threat of the world ending (whether or not that actually occurs by movie’s end), or movies with a post-apocalyptic theme.
(Since there are so many movies with these themes, we request no duplicate entries for this blogathon. Please check the list at the end of this blog entry [which will be kept updated] to ensure that your choice has not already been 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 Fri., March 30, through Sun., April 1, 2017. When the opening date of the blogathon arrives, leave a comment here with a link to your post, and we will display it in the list of entries (which we will continually update up to the beginning of the ‘thon, so keep checking back!).
We 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 1, we 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, in chronological order:
