Co Hosting The 4th Wonderful Grace Kelly Blogathon! Nov 11-12 2018

 

So everyone, it’s that time of year again- The time where we all get together and celebrate the extraordinary human being: Grace Patricia Kelly. This year is extra exciting because Ginnie of the Wonderful World of Cinema has invited me to be her co-host!!!

The rules and guidelines are as follows:

– You can write about any topic relating to Grace- her movies, hollywood relations/ friendships, collaborations with Hitchcock and Edith Head, her time as Princess of Monaco, her family- possibilities are endless- just make sure Grace is the center of the topic (naturally!)
-The blogathon will run November 11-12, 2018
-Duplicates are allowed, since her filmography isn’t very big!
-Blog posts must be new material
-Maximum of 2 entries per person
-you CAN participate if you don’t have a blog- a guest post is acceptable!
and TWO NEW RULES THIS YEAR
– Don’t participate if you don’t like Grace Kelly- in the past, Ginnie had participants who BASHED Grace- that’s not acceptable! AND
2- If you want to participate, YOU MUST subscribe first.
You can subscribe to to the Blogathon with me, Ginnie, on Twitter, or by email- just let us know and we will mark you down!
Can’t wait to hear your choices so we can celebrate this amazing Actress, Princess, Mother, Wife, Friend, Colleague, Fashion Icon (need I go on!? 😉 )

PS-Thank you ALL (my readers, my casual reader, my occasional visitors, and anyone who has read even 1 of my posts) for making The Flapper Dame Number 30 on the list of Top 30 Classic Film Blogs on the Net! I am absolutely humbled by this and feel it’s an honor to be named. I started film blogging in Dec 2015 just to find a place where I belong and talk about topics I love- classic Hollywood films and the men and woman who made them. I feel I do belong in this community of Classic Film bloggers- I’ve “met” some of the coolest bloggers and people. You all (my readers and fellow bloggers) inspire me everyday to continue to blog. I want to thank all of you and let you know I read every single comment and appreciate all of the kindness. It truly is a great part of my life. and one day I hope to make film writing my whole life. 
Lastly and especially- I also want to Thank my Mom, Sandra who reads every post on here and spreads the words to her friends; and my late Grandfather Joseph Kapser for introducing me to the world of Classic Movies by showing me who John Wayne is.
