UPDATE: Day 2 of the blogathon has begun! Be sure to check out any new posts, more are trickling in!
And just like that, our annual Busterthon is back–for year eight!!
And I’m proud to say that we have a great turnout this year and a wide range of topics–participants always do an amazing job, and this year’s no exception. So find your coziest chair, make a pot of your favorite tea, and please enjoy!
Bloggers: Please send me the link to your post whenever it’s ready today or tomorrow. (Many thanks if you already have!) I’ll be updating periodically throughout the blogathon. Don’t forget that I’ll be holding a drawing for all participants, the winner receiving a copy of the fabulous new James Curtis biography Buster Keaton: A Filmmaker’s Life. The drawing is scheduled for March 16.
Readers: Drop by often to see the latest posts–and don’t forget that we bloggers adore comments!
