Announcing the O Canada Blogathon 2016!

I had a blast on this one last year, as I scrambled to complete an epic series on Léolo. This coming year I will tackle two films: Pit Pony the feature version of the book that lead to the TV series, and Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy.

Do you like blogging? Do you like blogathons? You think November is a boring month? Well, join me and participate in The Wonderful Grace Kelly Blogathon! After the success of The Wonderful Ingrid Bergman Blogathon, last August, I felt like hosting another one. I was thinking of waiting a little bit, but I couldn’t. The Wonderful Grace Kelly Blogathon will take place on November 11 to November 12, 2015, on Grace Kelly’s birthday.

As time goes on things change, and one thing that has definitely changed is in a desire to get scheduled ahead of time on the blog. This desire to allow myself more freedom to pursue longer-running projects and write the new content I want to write when I feel up to it, has made it more easy for me to view films in an eclectic manner.

This is not to say that the categories of 31 Days of Oscar, March to Disney, Poverty Row April, 61 Days of Halloween, Thankful for World Cinema and Year-End Dash will cease to be. It only means that they will not be wall-to-wall (as previous updates already indicate) but they will also not always be exclusive to the time period. Mind you, I will likely not change the names so they’re all still searchable for you.

Should new themes make sense for upcoming months that would be unique and make sense for short runs they will happen.

Stay tuned. In the meantime, I have new blogathon contributions to come. Which you will be able to see on upcoming reblogs.
