Announcing the Dog Day Blogathon!

dog-day-blogathon-august-2018

It’s been far too long since I’ve hosted a Blogathon and for a couple of weeks now I’ve been wracking my brain for an idea. It was actually whilst at work that I discovered that 26th August 2018 is National Dog Day! As a lover of dogs both real and fictional, I thought this would be a great chance to celebrate Man’s best friend whilst still talking movies.

So, what I would like to propose is the following…

  1. Write a dog-related movie post for your blog. Tell us about your favourite on-screen canine, put together a Top 10 list, whatever your creative minds can think of.
  2. Publish your post on Sunday 26th August 2018, on National Dog Day.
  3. Either send me a link to your post as a comment here, send it to me on Twitter, or email it to allieisoftenofftopic@gmail.com. Heck, write the link on a post-it note and stick it on my front door if you like! Just let me know!
  4. Optional: Do you have a dog? Or perhaps you had a dog you sorely miss? Share them with us, all dogs should be celebrated!
  5. On the following day, I’ll create a master post with links to everyone’s posts.

Feel free to use my banner, or create your own, and have fun with it! I really hope to see my Blogroll filled with furry faces on the 26th August.

    What a great idea, Allie! Consider me a soft yes. πŸ˜› I’ll try but that is around the time I will be putting things together for my anniversary celebration. You might have to send me a reminder but I’ll do my darndest to participate. πŸ˜€

    Hello, love to join in but not sure if I’ll have the time to write a huge post on it, but if I do would love to add a post on 5 favourite dogs from film and TV. Will you add me for this choice, I have a few in mind so will be at the very least a wee picture post!

    Hi there! I’d like to sign up for this blogathon! Are you going to create a list of who will talk about what topic? I just don’t want to accidentally take someone else’s idea.

      It would be lovely to have you! I’ll be putting up a list the day after the blogathon but don’t worry about taking someone’s idea. I personally will be doing a Top 10 and I know at least 1 other blogger will be doing the same. It’ll be interesting to see how similar or different our ideas are πŸ™‚
