Last year, I said that I’d be hosting another Alfred Hitchcock blogathon, and it looks like it’s time. Hitchcock’s birthday is August 13th – sorry I didn’t give a more advanced heads-up about this whole thing; I forgot/the time got away from me – and the blogathon will be held from August 11th-13th. The previous blogathon was lots of fun and I’m hoping that everything will go just as smoothly this year.
To explain things for any newcomers…
A blogathon works like this: if you want to participate, leave a comment with a link to your blog and what you’ll be writing about (review of a Hitchcock film, something about Hitchcock’s life…basically anything, as long as it’s Hitchcock-related). I’ll add you to this post’s roster (down below the event buttons/posters/whatever you want to call them) and on August 11th, 12th, or 13th, you’ll publish your post and leave a link to it in the comments on a blog post I’ll set up for that purpose.
As there are lots and lots of topics that could be covered in this blogathon – movie reviews, Hitchcock’s life, the actors/actresses/composers/directors/designers he worked with…and so, so much more! – duplicate topics will not be allowed. (Sorry. I hate that, too, but we could end up with five reviews of North by Northwest, or something like that.)
Anyway, here are some buttons you can display on your blog’s sidebar, post on Facebook, etc., to promote the upcoming blogathon.
~Experience Film – EFC Classics: Vertigo (1958) – a psychoanalysis of the film and its characters
~Cristina Wehner – The Lodger (1927)
~Movie Movie Blog Blog – North by Northwest (1959)
~Phyllis Loves Classic Movies – Thoughts on some of Hitchcock’s British films
~The Lonely Critic – Dial ‘M’ for Murder (1954)
See you there!
