I’ve mentioned a few times wanting to do a blogathon of my own and now seems like a good a time as any to announce it’s happening! This being a first effort I’m hoping I’m up to the task, and I’m also hoping a few kind people will be willing to participate. Just what is the blogathon about? If you didn’t notice my banner above it will deal with all things Universal Studios Hollywood!
I’m a huge fan of Universal Studios and their backlot tour. It’s one of the most popular backlot studio tours in the world where movies are made everyday! In fact films have been made their since the silent era so there’s a lot of history associated with the backlot. Starting September 14th and running through the 16th, this blogathon will salute this studio tour. Have a review of a film that used the backlot (either completely or just for a scene counts)? Interested in the history of the site? As long as it pertains to Universal Studios Hollywood and the backlot it counts! You can comment below to sign up or email me at journeysinclassicfilm (at) gmail.com. Don’t worry if you don’t have a topic right now, I’ll place a formal call for topics about a month before the blogathon. Also, if you don’t have a blog that’s okay, I’m willing to host your post! This is purely to announce the blog and call for contributors. Feel free to spread this to your other blogging friends and maybe slap a banner on your site! Definitely looking forward to this!
