Yes, The 2nd Wonderful Grace Kelly Blogathon will be back this year (why not? She’s a favourite after all!) So, if didn’t have the chance to participate last year, make sure not to miss this second edition of the blogathon!
For the occasion, we’ll be honouring Grace Kelly on what would have been her 87th birthday. The event will start on November 10 and will take and end on November 12, 2016.
This blogathon will also be the occasion for us to do something special for the month of November, which is a rather boring month we must admit.
Grace Kelly is the first classical actress I discovered and since then she’s always been a very favourite of mine, that’s why I decided to honour her with a blogathon last year and will do so again this year. But I’m sure I’m not the only fan here. That’s why I invite you to share your love for Grace Kelly with us and participate to The 2nd Wonderful Grace Kelly Blogathon!
But of course, there are some simple rules to follow if you want to do so:
1- Choose a subject. It can be anything related to Grace Kelly: her films, her life, her friendships, her royal wedding, etc. You are, of course, allowed to write about her life as a princess. It doesn’t necessarily have to be related to the movies she starred in.
2- Concerning her filmography, I will allow duplicates as she starred only in 11 movies. However, I don’t want everyone to pick the same movie. If you see two persons have already chosen to talk about Rear Window, for instance, you might like to think about another subject. However, your writing must be new material.
3- To give chances to everybody, I won’t allow more than 2 entries for each participant.
4- You can submit your subject in the comments section or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via Twitter at @Ginnie_SP
5- Once I gave you my approval for your subject, grab one of those cool banners to help me promoting the event. The more the merrier!
6- If you’re not able to participate to the blogathon, you can always help me spreading the word about it. 🙂 It would be much helpful!
