Many Thanks to All the Participants of the 3rd Golden Boy Blogathon!


This annual event is already over (boooo) and, as always, it has been a real treat to read all your entries honouring the wonderful actor that William Holden was! I shared them all individually on this Facebook group dedicated to the Golden Boy and the Holdeners enjoyed them very much!

I also have to thanks, once again, my precious co-hosts, Michaela and Emily (Millennials crew!!) who kindly accepted to help me host the blogathon this year. I don’t think it would have been possible otherwise!


If you missed some of the entries (because being shared on 3 different blogs, it could happen), here they are all, one more time. I invite you to read as many as possible because they are all worthy.

William Holden Centenary couldn’t have been more entertaining! I would like to say “see you next year” but I’m no 100% sure I’ll be in Montreal next April and able to host, so I’ll say: see you next time, for more Golden Holden festivities!
