A “Loving Lucy” Update!

Time seems to be flying by this summer. I can’t believe we’re less than a month from Lucille Ball’s centenary … and our Loving Lucy Blogathon! Naturally, we Lucyphiles are almost bursting with excitement. Here’s a quick update on how (we hope) things will work.

The “rules” (I use the term loosely) for this blogathon are simple. Sometime before or on August 6th, post your contribution on your own blog. On the morning of the blogathon, I’ll put up a post to list the links to everyone’s entries. Simply leave a comment on that post with the link to your contribution, or shoot us an email at trueclassicsblog (at) gmail dot com.

That’s it! And remember, there is no limit to the number of entries you can submit or the topics at hand. The blogathon is not restricted solely to entries about Lucy’s films—we’re celebrating any and all aspects of the legendary comedienne’s life and career.

Here’s an updated list of the wonderful bloggers who have signed up to participate thus far. If you’re interested in joining us, leave a comment and I’ll gladly add your blog to the list!

  1. I’m in…if only to obsess on the William Holden episode of “I Love Lucy,” the funniest episode of any sitcom I’ve seen in my life…Lucy is so beyond brilliant in it that I still laugh when I see it, even after at least a thousand and one viewings…

    • Yay! We’re glad to have you! And I can’t wait to read your entry. The Bill Holden ep is by far one of my favorite Lucy moments, period.

  2. Looking forward to your blogathon, and I’m pleased to announce I’m inviting you to return the favor. From Oct. 6 to 9, “Carole & Co.” will sponsor its first-ever blogathon, “Carole-tennial(+3)!” named in honor of the 103rd anniversary of Carole Lombard’s birth. You can learn more about it (along with banners you can borrow) at http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/427564.html.
