It's a blogathon! It's a blog party! It's... We Love Superheroes Week!
I hinted about this last month, and today I am ready to make it official. I had so much fun last year hosting the Jane Austen Week that I decided to make it a sort of annual shindig: party time at Hamlette's the week of Valentine's Day. Only every year, we'll have a different theme. And this year, that theme is superheroes!
Like last year's party, there will be so many fun things to do that we'll need all week to hold them all. A giveaway. A blog tag to fill out. A game or two. And a blogathon.
And you are hereby invited to participate! If you love superheroes too, be they in comic books, movies, TV shows, video games, or what have you, please mark this down on your calendar. Figure out how you're going to share your love of superheroes via your blog or website. Then sign up with your blogathon entry in the comments on this post.
You can do a movie review, a character sketch, a game, an ode to why a particular superhero is your favorite -- the possibilities are basically only limited by your imagination. It just has to involve super-powered individuals. If you're not sure if your idea will work, feel free to ask!
Because there are gazillions of superheros and things about superheroes, we can only have one review per individual movie. However! Obviously you can come up with a way to talk about a franchise as a whole, or a particular character's arc over a series of films, etc., even if someone has already spoken for one movie. So if someone says they're going to review Thor: Ragnarok, and someone else says they're doing a character sketch of Thor, you could still do a post on Thor and Loki's evolving relationship over the course of the Thor films, for example. (Also, please, somebody write that post. I want to read it.)
So if you've got an adaptation or character you really love and want to blog about for this event, sign up the sooner, the better! The list of claimed entries will be at the end of this post.
Also, I got kind of carried away with the buttons. Feel free to use any of them that strike your fancy. Put them on your blog, post them to Facebook, use them to invite your friends whenever, wherever, and however!
