The Third Wonderful Grace Kelly Blogathon Is Back in November!

Hello hello!

I must admit since I will already host the Joan Fontaine Centenary Blogathon in October, I hesitated on hosting the Grace Kelly blogathon this year but, since I love her too much, I couldn’t resist.

Plus, we have good reasons to honour Grace Kelly this year: 2017 marks the 35 “anniversary” of her tragic death and 2017 also marks the 50th anniversary of Montreal’s Expo 67 that Grace Kelly attended as a representant of Monaco.

The blogathon will start on November 10 and will end on November 12, 2017.

If you are new to this blogathon or to blogathons in general, there are a few steps/rules to follow:

1- Choose a topic related to Grace Kelly. Since she only made 11 films, I will allow duplicates, but try not to all write about Rear Window! And don’t forget that Grace Kelly wasn’t only an actress. She was also a princess, a fashion icon, and a woman first. So, the topics are much more numerous than you might think! You can submit your topic in the comment section or via email at virginie.pronovost@gmail.com

2- Can I participate if I don’t have a blog? Sure. You just have to send me your text via email and I will publish it on my blog and credit you.

3- If you have one, please give me your Twitter handle.

4- Once your subject has been confirmed, decorate your blog with one of these banners to help me promote the blogathon. As always, I had a lot of fun creating those.

5- All posts must be new material and no plagiarism is allowed.

6- To give a chance to everybody, I will allow a maximum of two entries/blog.

7- The blogathon will start on November 10 and end on November 12, 2017, on Grace Kelly’s birthday. On the first day, I will publish a new post where you will be able to submit your entry.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

  1. Hi, sorry about the short notice but will have to withdraw from the blogathon as Grace Kelly only appears for a short time in this movie. Good luck with the blogathon and I will be sure to drop in to read the other entries. Good luck! from Gill at Realweegiemidget Reviews
