Hello friends and enemies! 😉
Are you ready to celebrate Ingrid Bergman? I hope you are because the 4th edition of my Wonderful Ingrid Bergman Blogathon has finally arrived, and this, for a three-day duration. With various topics concerning the life and career of the Swedish goddess, this is bound to be an unforgettable event for any of her fans. AND, once again, for a fourth consecutive year, I am not working on the 29 (Ingrid’s birthdate and 36th “death anniversary”), which means a day fully dedicated to the celebrated one. I guess my employers must be reading in my mind. Well, thanks anyway. My tribute to her has already started last week due to me eating a bunch of ice cream. Remember, Ingrid LOVED ice cream. Well, that’s what happens you have your wisdom teeth removed. Now I have to deal with some… damn headaches but, hopefully, reading your article will make me forget these. Unless maybe you’re writing about Ingrid’s hangover in Notorious. LOL.
All jokes aside, I’m looking forward to read all your great entries for the blogathon. Ingrid was the most talented actress ever (in my humble opinion) and she surely deserves all these honours!
Remember, the blogathon starts today on August 27, 2018, and will take an end on August 29, 2018, which marks Ingrid’s 103rd birthday and 36th death anniversary. To submit your entry, please comment on this post and provide me the URL to your article. You can also send it to me via email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are on Twitter and could give me your Twitter handle, that would be great!
Of course, don’t forget to spread the word and share the event on various social media!
