Blog Events in February and March


First up will be We Love Superheroes Week hosted right here by me :-)  If you haven't head about it yet, it'll be a week of superhero-centric fun, with a blogathon, a tag you can fill out, a giveaway, and games.  Details are here.  This starts a week from yesterday!


Second, it has come to my attention that February 14 is not only Vic Morrow's birthday and Valentine's Day, it's also International Book-Giving Day!  There's an official website and everything.  To celebrate, I'm going to be doing a book giveaway on my book blog, The Edge of the Precipice, starting later this week, with winners drawn that day.  If you love books, be sure to check it out.


Next up is the annual Favourite TV Show Episode Blogathon hosted by A Shroud of Thoughts -- you can get more details here.  I'll be reviewing the two-part ep "The Long Way Home" of my favorite show ever, Combat! (1962-67)


And finally, Eva is hosting The Good Cop, Bad Cop Blogathon at Coffee, Classics, and Craziness -- for more details, go here.  I'm planning to review an Alan Ladd noir, Hell on Frisco Bay (1955).

There you have it!

    1. Thanks, ThoughtsAllSorts! I've heard of a few of these -- and if I'd had more time, I probably would have entered the O Canada one. Maybe next year!

  5. Dear Hamlette,

    Congratulations on all the wonderful plans you have for the near future! Everything sounds very special. I wish you the best of luck with all these endeavors. I would love to support your blogathon, but it is awfully close to the time we are hosting our "Singing Sweethearts" blogathon. In addition, I don't think I've really watched any superhero movies.

    Since you have such a full schedule, you probably will not be able to participate in the Singing Sweethearts Blogathon: https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2017/12/20/ring-the-assembly-bell-here-comes-the-singing-sweethearts-blogathon/. If you are not too busy, we would love to have you participate. We could really use your talent!

    Yours Hopefully,

    Tiffany Brannan

    1. Thanks for the invite, Tiffany! I have the same issue -- my blogathon is too close in time to yours to make doing both feasible. But I hope it goes well!

Agree or disagree? That is the question...
