Guys, I’m so excited for this!!! As most of you know, Star Wars is one of my favorite things. In fact, it’s my second favorite fictional universe of all time (coming right in after Narnia–and sometimes maybe even edging out Narnia, as a matter of fact). So many amazing stories, characters, planets…I LOVE IT ALL. And so I’ve teamed up with the incredible Katie to bring you a three day blogathon chock-full (we hope!) of Star Wars goodness.
What can you write about for the blogathon? What can you not write about? Absolutely anything Star Wars-related is fair game. The movies! The TV shows! The books! The music! Fanfiction! Memorabilia and merch! The actors and actresses! If it’s connected to the galaxy far, far away, feel free to fangirl/boy about it to your heart’s content.
We’re not going to police duplicate posts. For one, I’d be surprised if we get many of those (duplicate posts being, like, two people review A New Hope) because Star Wars is so vast and varied. But even if we do, it’s fine because everyone’s going to have different perspectives–even on the exact same things. Also, if you want to write more than one post for the blogathon, that’s awesome! Write as many posts as you want! Like I said before, Star Wars is HUGE and so many of us fans love different aspects of the universe. So write on, young padawan. Just let us know what you plan to write about so Katie and I can add you to the roster down below.
The blogathon runs from October 15th to 17th, and we have several blog buttons that you can use to advertise this event (and also decorate your blogathon posts). We’d love to have as many Star Wars fans participating as possible, so do spread the word if you feel inclined!
