One of the best cinematic discoveries I made through this blog is a wonderful actor (with the most irresistible smile ever) named William Holden. Last year, I did a marathon and watched a ton of his films. I have now seen 22 of his films!
I can’t believe that, a few years ago, I didn’t care for him! He now has the silver medal and belong to the second place in my personal top list of favourite actors.
Because this handsome man was such a great and appreciated actor, and because I absolutely adore him, I couldn’t resist creating a blogathon in his honour. “Another Blogathon Virginie?” Yes, another one! They are so much fun to host and that’s one of the best ways to celebrate our love of films and movie stars. I hope many of you will participate! 🙂
The event will take place from April 15 until April 17 (on Bill’s 98th birthday), 2016. Of course, if you want to participate, there are some friendly rules to respect:
1- Choose your subject. It can be anything related to William Holden. If you decided to review a film, I’d ask you to respect a no duplicates rule. If you choose a subject that seems too similar to another one, I might ask you to change it. William Holden is a man of great diversity! 😉 And, yes, you can write two entries.
2- You can submit your subject by commenting on this post or via Twitter (@Ginnie_SP), or you can send me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can always visit my Facebook page The Wonderful World of Cinema. For your submission, give me your subject, the name of your blog, and the URL.
2- Once your choice is confirmed, promote the blogathon! I’ve created some banners that you can use on your blog to spread the world. Ask your friends to join, share it on Facebook, Twitter, etc.! Even if you can’t participate, you can help us promote it! I’d be very grateful. If you use twitter, you can use this hashtag: #goldenboyblogathon
3- I won’t give you any specific day to publish your entry. As long as you publish it on April 15, 16 or 17, 2016, that’s fine for me.
4- On April 15, I will publish a new post where you will submit your entry. You can also send them to me via twitter, email, etc.
5- Of course, have fun! And don’t hesitate to ask questions! 🙂
