It’s that time of year again when the legendary Bette Davis is the celebrated star of my frequent blogathons. With the success of the two previous blogathons, I’ve decided to shine the spotlight on Bette for the third consecutive year.
As we all know, Bette Davis would be celebrating her 110th birthday this April 5th, and what better way is there to celebrate the special occasion than hosting a blogathon?
1. Now we all know the drill. Bloggers are welcome to write about anything relating to Bette Davis. There are a wealth of topics available, so the list is endless. As always, I encourage people to be imaginative and think outside the square. Instead of writing about her movies, you might want to provide a detailed analysis on another aspect of her life and career.
2. Because the life of Bette Davis is brimming with stories, I am allowing no more than two duplicates. If you have a topic in mind, act fast.
3. The blogathon commences on Bette’s birthday on April 5th, and finishes on April 7th. On the day of the blogathon I will publish a new post where bloggers can submit their entries. I only ask that you please send me your articles on either of those days or early if you prefer, and I’ll happily promote them.
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. 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 choose one of the banners and advertise it on your blog. I look forward to seeing you all in April to celebrate all things Bette Davis.
Bloggers please note: Dark Victory, Now Voyager, All About Eve, Mr. Skeffington and Death On The Nile has been claimed the maximum number of times, and is no longer available.
