Anyone who knows me would know that I am a devoted fan of Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, and have always marveled over the level of talent that both stars exuded. When my fellow Kate enthusiast, Margaret Perry asked me if I would do the hosting duties for this years blogathon, I was euphoric, and approached the assignment with absolute gusto.

It’s been three months since I announced this great blogathon, which showcases the masterful dexterity of Katharine Hepburn, and Spencer Tracy, her frequent co-star and love interest. As time progressed, an array of bloggers registered, and during the course of the next few days, these prolific writers will be celebrating the life and careers of both stars who continue to leave an indelible mark on cinematic history.

I would like to thank everyone who took the time to participate, and I look forward to reading your entries.

    Dear Crystal,

    Your blogathon seems to be going really well so far. Good luck on the next few days of it! I will publish my article on “Holiday” tomorrow and my article on “Woman of the Year” the next day.

    Dear Crystal,

    I’m about halfway done with my “Woman of the Year” article, but I won’t be able to publish it before midnight. If I publish it sometime tomorrow, can it still be included in the blogathon? If not, you will have to remove this second article from the roster. I do hope you will be able to accept it a little late. I’m sorry about being tardy, but I’m sure you understand how busy I was this weekend.

    Yours Hopefully,

    Tiffany Brannan
