The Viv and Larry Blogathon is next weekend already! Anyone is welcome to participate, whether you have a standard blog or a tumblr.
What: The goal of this blog-a-thon is to celebrate Vivien Leigh’s and Laurence Olivier’s films and their lasting impact on popular culture. I’ve chosen the dates to correspond with the anniversaries of both their deaths (July 7 and July 11th, respectively). This will be a great way to show some love for the Oliviers, as well as to become more familiar with the film blogging community at large. It should be really fun!
When: July 9-10, 2011
Where: The internet! Hosted by vivadlarry.com
Rules: This blog-a-thon is open to all film bloggers (and readers) around the internet. You can write about their films, theatrical contributions, your love of their beauty, fashion, etc., any aspect of Vivien Leigh’s and/or Laurence Olivier’s careers or lives. As per the usual blog-a-thon protocol, posts should be made to your own blog on the dates listed above, and a running list of links will be posted at vivandlarry.com.
One other thing: Although participants are welcome to write about any film or aspect of Vivien and/or Larry’s lives, it would be great if we can get posts about a variety of films rather than just the ones that are the most popular today such as Gone with the Wind.
Be sure and sign up at the post linked above if you’d like to participate as a blogger so that I can add your blog to the list! We have 35 amazing classic film bloggers signed up so far! I’m so excted for all of the Viv and Larry love!
