No It’s been a while since I blogged. Life happens. But when one of my favourite bloggers, Gill from Realweegiemidget Reviews approached me about co-hosting a Blogathon dedicated to the six official Bond actors’ non-Bond films, I knew that it was time to get back on the blogging wagon! I have been a massive Bond fan since I was four years old. My first film in the cinema was Goldeneye, which my mother took me to see. And from that day on, a lifelong love bloomed into me owning every single film on Blu-ray, buying Bond related art and merchandise, and becoming part of the amazing Bond community on Twitter. So this blogathon is something that I am not only incredibly excited about, but which holds a special place in my heart. I have also watched a number of the Bond actors’ non-Bond films, which I find to be both enjoyable and fascinating. So I am very interested to see what gems I find through hosting this Blogathon.
Now for the rules:
- The Bond actors each have had quite a long career and so their filmographies are solid, as are their TV performances. Because of this, we will be allowing only two duplicates per entry, and three posts per participant. Please only submit new work, as we won’t be accepting any posts written previously.
- You can write about anything you like pertaining to the Bond actors’ film career, television appearances they’ve made, and their friendships and relationships with fellow film stars. But you cannot write about any of the Bond films. This is a blogathon about the Bond actors’ non Bond work. We are only accepting posts on the official six Bond actors. So that does not include David Niven or any other parodies etc.
- This blogathon is dedicated to the Bond actors’ life and work and we want to celebrate them, so let’s please keep things nice and not write anything derogatory or defamatory about them.
- The Blogathon is being held from the 16th of December to 18th of December, 2021. Please submit your entries either before or by those dates. If you find that you need a little extension, please let either me or Gil know.
- Please take one of the banners and put it somewhere on your site to promote the blogathon. We’d also very much appreciate it if you included one of the banners in your post for the blogathon.
- And most importantly, please let us know what you would like to write about for the blogathon, by either commenting on this post or Gill’s post, leaving a reply on my contact page, or contacting me on twitter @noir_or_never or Gill @realweegiemidge. Please include the name of your blog and a link to it, as we don’t really want to act as amateur sleuths and hunt for you! Please tag me and Gill on twitter when you share your entry on there, so we can retweet it 🙂
