Well, folks, 2016 is almost 2/3 over (and I am rapidly approaching the first anniversary since its inauguration). In the words of The Grateful Dead "What a Long strange trip it's been".
I have co-hosted one blogathon (The Oscars Snubs Blogathon) and have gone solo on another (The Film Noir Blogathon). Both of them had lots of participation and I hope they were fun for those who got involved.
Looking forward to the future, I hope to do another blogathon (this one dedicated to John Wayne) in the near future, if I can wangle a fellow blogger to co-host with me (that one is still pending.) Update: It is no longer "pending". Hamlette @ Hamlette's Soliloquy has stepped up to the plate to help me run the blogathon, coming to a blog near you in December.
I will also be finishing out the year with a few more entries into other blogathons. Keep your eyes peeled for those. As well, since my anniversary is on or about Halloween, I want to celebrate with a week long tribute to some of my favorite horror movies.
Next year I am also going to celebrate the 55th birthday of James Bond movies by posting a year long tribute titled "The Year of Bond" (24 movies so far, so @ 2 movies a month, I will finish in December of 2017. These will appear regularly on the "007"th day of the month...)
Plus there will be plenty more fellow bloggers' blogathons to enter and fulfill. If you were one of the early readers of this post, you will notice that I replaced "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" with "Creepshow" for my Halloween tribute. That's because since I wrote this, I joined a circus themed blogathon, scheduled for mid-November, and decided to move Killer Klowns to that blogathon instead, so keep watching the blog.
I have no plans to go anywhere. But I am going to take a break for another week to rest up from The Film Noir Blogathon I finally put to bed. Take care, and look for "Dazed and Confused" for Pop Culture Reverie's Back to School Blogathon as my next post next weekend.
