Announcing the Fifth Doris Day Blogathon!
I don't know about you all, but I am, in a word, exhausted. With the pandemic still ongoing, work being crazy, and other more personal issues, my creativity and writing ability have just been zapped. Which makes me feel terrible because it seems like I've been neglecting this blog for so long. I honestly thought I'd have more time for writing and other hobbies once grad school was over -- and then COVID happened and any hope of returning to some kind of normal routine went out the window.
This is all to say that if you're a regular reader of mine, I'm sorry I haven't been around a lot. I swear it's not intentional! I'm just struggling to get to a place where writing doesn't feel like a chore that requires brain power that I don't really have.
But that's enough about poor, pitiful me! This post is really supposed to be about something happy: the return of my Doris Day blogathon!
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 (I tried something different with these and I'm not sure how successful I was), spread the word, and I'll see you in April!
