I had so much fun last year when I hosted my very first blogathon: The Wonderful Ingrid Bergman Blogathon in honour of her centenary. As it was a success (and as I love Ingrid so much), I couldn’t resist hosting it again this year. After all, 101 is a beautiful number too! The celebrations were big around the world for Ingrid Bergman’s birthday during the whole 2015. But why shouldn’t we celebrate her in our own way (blogging) next August 29 (which also marks her death anniversary)?
Hosting the blogathon again will also be the occasion for those who missed it last year to participate.
Of course, if you wish to participate and honour the wonderful Ingrid Bergman with us, here are some rules to follow:
1- Choose a subject. You can write about anything related to Ingrid Bergman (her life, a film, a director she collaborated with, etc.). No duplicates (that mostly concerns the films). If you want to write more than on entry, don’t hesitate to do so, but I’d prefer to limit it to 2 by person.
2- Once you have your subject, submit it here in the comments section or via Twitter (Ginnie_SP) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or message me via the Wonderful World of Cinema Facebook Page. Provide your subject, your blog name, your blog URL and your Twitter handle (if you have a Twitter account).
3- Once you’re subject is approved, take one of these banners to promote the event on your blog. Even if you can’t participate, you can always help us promoting the event. We (I) want as much participants as possible!
4- The event will take place from August 27 to August 29, 2016 on Ingrid’s 101 birthday. On the bogathon days, I will publish a new post where you could submit your entry.
5- If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. And have fun!
