In just seven days, it’ll be time for…
Yes, our “yearly Bustering” (as one fellow blogger put it) is nearly upon us! I’m looking forward to reading all your fine entries, and offer a pre-thank you to all the bloggers who are joining in. I know there’s a lot (a lot) of competing blogathons nowadays, so it’s always nice to see you guys set aside a little time to honor our favorite porkpie-hatted comedian!
As many of you already know, I hold a drawing every year for blogathon participants as a little “thank you.” This year our annual Busterthon is graciously being sponsored by the International Buster Keaton Society itself (aka the Damfinos), which is donating a $50 giftcard to their awesome online Buster Stuff store! For many years the Damfinos have worked hard to preserve Buster’s legacy and share his fabulous films with the world, and they also host a lovely convention every October (it could not be more highly recommended). Silent-ology is honored to have their support!
Now, if you’re just learning about this blogathon and would like to join in, go right ahead, latecomers are welcome! And keep in mind that duplicates are 100% allowed!
Happy writing, everyone!
