He was a legend whose genius shone through in every avenue he explored, and his unparalleled flair for being funny made him become the face of family comedy. Robin Williams was the greatest actor to grace modern day cinema screens, and to this day nobody has reached the depths of artistry that he attained during his short time on mortal soil.
To celebrate the life and the illustrious career of this iconic actor who touched the lives of millions worldwide through his superlative talents and selfless generosity, Gill from Real Weegie Midget Reviews, and myself from In The Good Old Days Of Classic Hollywood are paying tribute to everyone’s favorite funny man by hosting a blogathon in his honor.
Considering the fact that the soul focus of this blog is classic Hollywood, many of you will find it unusual that the star of this blogathon is Robin Williams, but in my opinion, Robin Williams is one of a very few stars from today that deserve to be put in the spotlight.
1. Before we continue there are some ground rules that must be adhered to. Bloggers are welcome to write about any topic regarding the life and career of Robin Williams. However, we only ask that you please refrain from delving into his suicide. Of course, you can mention it in your posts, but we don’t want articles where the main focus is his death: There are a wealth of subjects to talk about without having to resort to the tragic end of his life.
2. As for duplicates, Gill and I have decided to allow three duplicate entries. This gives everyone a chance to participate with the topic of their choice.
3. The blogathon will commence on January 19th, 2018, and will finish on January 31st. On the first day of the blogathon, Gill and I will publish a new post where you can submit your entries.
4. To express your interest in participating in the blogathon, leave a comment on my blog along with the name and URL of your blog, and the subject you wish to cover, or you can always register by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting Gill over at her blog. For those of you who wish to register by email, please be sure to include the name and URL of your blog, and the topic you wish to cover. Once you get confirmation, please spread the word about this blogathon by advertising the event on your blog. Below are a few banners, so grab yourself a banner, and let’s show Robin Williams our love.
