announcing the Everything Star Wars Blogathon!

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!

Annnnnd…

  1. Dear Eva,

    My sister and I would love to join! We have been breening one Star Wars film per month, so we will be on “Attack of the Clones” by October. Could you please put Rebekah and me on the roster for that? Thank you! You made some very nice posters, by the way.

    Yours Hopefully,

    Tiffany Brannan

  2. It’s only taken me nearly a month, haha…but I’ve FINALLY thought of my other post for the Blogathon! I want to do a post about Rey & Kylo Ren’s literary parallels πŸ˜€

  3. Ohh, awesome!! This sounds SO fun! I’ll definitely be reading posts, and hopefully will come up with one of my own to contribute. πŸ™‚ (Will let you know once I think of it, haha.)

  4. A buddy of mine and I have had a long-running debate that the original Star Wars is actually another type of movie disguised as as a space/sci-fi flick. We’d love to present that debate as part of this event!

  5. I found this through Olivia’s blog and I would love to join. I want to do a defense post on Anakin Skywalker. He’s such a great character and people are just now coming around to realize that. I’ve spent years defending him and I feel somewhat validated that my conclusions about him have been right for over 18 years.

  6. Love this!!

    I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going to write, but I’m Quite Sure that it’ll be some kind of PadmΓ© appreciation post.

  7. You know what could be an unexpected addition to this blogathon? A review of the foreign ripoff, Turkish Star Wars.

    Either that, or I could take a general look at the height of Lucasarts, where they weren’t just releasing a whole bunch of Star Wars games, but many of their early to mid 90’s games were actually quite revolutionary for the gaming industry as a whole.

    1. I think all blogathon entries should be fresh, new content…sorry. :/ There are so many different topics to choose from–even just a very short post would be awesome!

  9. How cool! Well, I will have to break blog silence for this! Must think about topics. Perhaps how awesome Agent Kallus is in Star Wars: Rebels. Perhaps something about my favorite cues from all the SW music.Hm. Will contemplate.

  10. I have been waiting ALL DAY to get off of work so I could comment on this post!! So far I’ve got one idea I’m really excited about: a review of my favorite tracks on each of the 9 Skywalker Saga soundtracks. One track for each soundtrack, that is…with a few Honorable Mentions because I could never limit it to just 9 tracks XD

    I’ll probably come up with another post idea, though, since I have so many thoughts about Star Wars, haha. Once I nail that second idea down, I’ll hurry back and let you know!

    P.S. As a hopeless convert to the Reylo ship, I shall steal THAT button πŸ˜€

    1. Yay!!! I’ll add that idea to the roster–it sounds WONDERFUL. I haven’t listened to much from the SW soundtracks (besides the more iconic tracks), so I hope you include some more obscure bits in your post. πŸ˜‰ (No pressure though, lol!)

      Looking forward to your post(s)!
