Humphrey Bogart Blogathon Announcement+ Blog Updates

As most of you probably know by now, Humphrey Bogart is my favorite actor. In honor of his 112th birthday on December 25th, I've decided to host my first blogathon, which will run from December 23-December 25th. I realize that's it's three months away, but if you'd like to participate, I ask that you let me know by December 22nd. Your post can be about his films, his life or anything else Bogie-related.

Here are a few banners I made to promote the blogathon (feel free to make your own if you'd rather):








Just a few other blog updates:

Starting Saturday, I'll be changing the blog header at the beginning of every month featuring a film that somehow relates to that particular month.

Also, I'll be starting a new "blog series" called My Favorite Films. As the title says, about once or twice a month I'll do blog posts talking about some of my favorite films, mainly focusing on my top twenty for now. I'm planning to blog about a few special films to coincide with the blogathon in December.

If you have any questions about the blogathon, let me know in the comments, or contact me through Twitter.

  13. Meredith, if you haven't locked anybody in for either THE BIG SLEEP, ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT, or DEAD RECKONING, I'd love to blog about one of those. If it turns out they're all taken already, I'll be content to read the Bogart blog posts you and/or others write! :-)
