Time for a new blogathon!
My blogging habits have been spotty lately, I know. A broken ankle and several other personal issues have made it difficult to post regularly. The good news is my ankle is just about completely recovered, and other areas of my life seem to be finally calming down into a new routine.
So why not host a new blogathon?
This time, I’m inviting you to write about your favorite costume drama.
I’m using the term “drama” loosely. The film(s) you choose to write about can also be comedies, musicals, etc., if you like.
However, I would prefer “costume” to not be synonymous with “period” drama. I know many people think of movies set in the 1980s as “period” films. Anything set early 20th Century and before is fine. (Let’s use 1920 as a completely arbitrary marking point.)
So any movie set 1920 and earlier is acceptable and can be set in any area of the world. The movie can have been made in any era, from any area of the world.
No duplicates, please. I am allowing ONE exception: there is a post from an earlier blogathon that was submitted late which I never got a chance to promote. It’s about Gone With the Wind. I will promote it during this blogathon, but will allow one more person to submit a post on the same topic.
The blogathon will run Friday, September 6 – Sunday, September 8. You may post any day (or earlier, if you wish).
To claim your topic, please request your choice in the comments section below, or contact me on Twitter (@DebbieVee). Include the name and URL of your blog. Then grab one of the banners below, display it on your blog and link it back to this post.
Thanks for joining in!
