Announcing the Sixth Annual Doris Day Blogathon!

 

Well, long time, no see!

Life has made it hard to keep up with my blog, but I'm going to try my best to stick with my annual blogathons, including my Doris Day one. This year is particularly special because it's going to be Doris's centenary!

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, spread the word, and I'll see you in April!

    1. I don't know if you belong to this group on Facebook

      It's run by Gill from RealWeegie. Anyway, I posted this blog-a-thon there and am adding it to my blog-a-thon page!

    2. Thank you! I don't join Facebook groups anymore (absolutely nothing against the people running them, it's just not my thing), so I appreciate you spreading the word. :)
