Announcing the Fourth Annual Doris Day Blogathon!

For those of you who are regular readers (hi!), you know that for almost two years now, I've been drowning in grad school work. Every semester has been an enormous struggle, especially with two part-time jobs, and now I'm in the thesis-writing portion of my degree. So, my brain has been hopelessly scrambled for the past month -- there was honestly one week where I couldn't even put a full sentence together whenever I talked to someone -- and I'm definitely still not able to write for this blog as much as I used to.

That being said, I couldn't imagine not doing my annual Doris Day blogathon. This year will be the fourth edition, and tragically the first one since Doris's passing last May. I'm still heartbroken that we lost this lovely human being, but I'm more than happy to continue this yearly tradition of celebrating her life and all the beautiful things she did with it.

The rules are the same as they have been: you can write about anything relating to Doris -- her films, her music, her personal life, her work with animals, her role as a style icon, the list goes on! I also won't limit how many posts you want to do.

Because there is so, so much you can write about, I'd prefer no duplicates. Sorry, all, it's first come, first serve.

You can post on any of the three days of the blogathon, or you can post early! I only ask that you be sure to send me your link and I'll try to post it as soon as possible.

Now grab a banner (not going to lie, I went the lazy route with these), spread the word, and I'll see you in April!

  1. Hi, Michaela!
    Can I please write about "The Man Who Knew Too Much" (1956)?

  2. I would like to contribute an installment of my series "Sports Analogies Hidden In Classic Movies" for Doris Day's 1968 "With Six, you Get Egg Roll."

    BTW, I did not know you were in graduate school...been there, done that. Best of luck because I know the struggle :)

    1. Awesome, thanks for joining! And thanks for the luck -- I'll need it for this last semester, that's for sure.

    2. Gill from RealWeegieMidgetReviews is telling me she can't leave comments on your site. She wants to join with Pillow Talk.

    3. Weird! Thanks for helping her out. I hope no one else is having that problem. :(

  3. I'm new to blogging but not to Doris Day. Love her! Can I join in with a post about Send Me No Flowers?

    1. Definitely! Welcome to blogging, by the way! Hopefully I got your blog name right on the roster above, but please let me know if I need to amend it. :)

  4. Dear Michaela,

    Thank you for hosting this great event again! I would love to participate. I would like to review a film with Doris Day, "The Winning Team" from 1952, and write another article about some costume which she wore in a film. Is that alright?

    Yours Hopefully,

    Tiffany Brannan
