I wanted to announce this sooner, but unfortunately, I’ve had a lot on my plate lately, and to top it all off, I’ve been suffering from depression yet again, and that is a huge burden that prevents me from proceeding with things.

Now that I’ve gotten all of that out of my system, I want to say that I’m pleased that my annual Bette Davis Blogathon will be returning for its fourth consecutive year this April. The event will take place between April 5th – 7th to coincide with what would have been Bette’s 111th birthday on April 5th.

For those bloggers who would like to join the party, there are some rules that must be adhered to. Please read the following. 

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: 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.

  5. Here I am… is there a slot for the Karavansara blog to cover The Watcher in the Woods, a Disney horror movie (yes, once such things existed) from 1980?
