Announcing the Third Doris Day Blogathon!
So, I'm sure I sound like a broken record by now, but life has been the definition of hectic ever since I started grad school in August. Who knew that going to school full time, having two part-time jobs, and volunteering at my university cinema could take up so much time? (The answer should be me. Not sure how I didn't see this coming.) Because of that, my personal blog has suffered a bit, and I really, really hate it. I haven't been able to participate in nearly as many blogathons as I'd like; I'm really behind on keeping up to date with my favorite blogs; I haven't been commenting on people's posts...
That being said, I couldn't neglect to do one of my favorite events: my annual Doris Day blogathon! The idea of not celebrating this woman who is so close to my heart was unthinkable, so I looked over my calendar, made sure I could handle placing the event on Ms. Day's April 3rd birthday, and quickly cobbled together some banners, which I'll admit are not my best work.
The blogathon's rules are pretty simple:
You can write about anything relating to Day -- 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, spread the word, and I'll see you in April!
