Announcing: The 5th Golden Boy Blogathon

It’s that time of the blogathon calendar to announce the 5th William Holden Golden Boy Blogathon!
2022 is the opportune time to bring back the Golden Boy we all know and love and I’m pleased to say that Ginnie (The Wonderful World of Cinema) has asked myself and Michaela (Love Letters to Old Hollywood) to again be her co-hosts!
The Blogathon will take place on April 15-17 2022, ending on Bill’s actual Birthday (can you believe he would be 104 this year!).

In case you need a refresher or forgot the guidelines they are as follows:

1- Choose a topic related to the Golden Boy! It can be anything about him as long as it is done with RESPECT

• Duplicates are allowed, but limit of two entries per blogger.
• Please submit your topic in the comments. and also provide the name of your blog and its URL. You can comment here on my blog or on Ginnie’s blog or Michaela’s blog.

2- Once you’re approved, feel free to promote the event by including one of the banners Ginnie so awesomely created on your blog / social media!

3- The blogathon will start  April 15, 2022, and end on April 17, 2022. You can submit your entrie(s) on any one of these dates! (late entries also accepted!)

4- We each are hosting a day. I am in charge of April 15; Ginnie is taking control on April 16, and Michaela will conclude the event on April 17 (aka Bill’s Birthday!)

Finally, please remember we will only be accepting new, unpublished material for this blogathon!
