Announcing the Odd or Even Blogathon!

Another announcement…what??? Gill of Realweegiemidget Reviews and I have been wanting to co-host another blogathon since our Home Sweet Home event last year (which was a total blast), and after hashing out some ideas we have something we hope you’ll like. Put it this way: It’s kinda like a blogathon and a game show had a head-on collision.

Basically, the concept is this (and the wording here may look a little familiar if you’ve been to Gill’s blog, but we are co-hosting, after all):

  • You can review ANY films, TV Movies or TV series BUT remember to add your choice of review from an ODD and an EVEN year. We will tell you which one is to be reviewed so you must be prepared to write on either of them.
  • If you want to add two reviews, this means you send us four possible choices ie with two odd and two even years.. you will be assigned your odd or even choices.
  • Once we get your reviews, we’ll decide on what your review(s) is to be by tossing a coin with Heads for Odds and Tails for Evens, then we’ll confirm your post.

Here are the rules…

  • We are not allowing any duplicates as this topic is pretty huge. You can however write about those review topics previously mentioned, but only if they are in a list or retrospective review. Lists should have all odd or all evendates.
  • Review choices can be added as a comment on this page or you can contact me on my Contact Me page  – please add the name of your blog along with your choice of movie or TV choice. Or you can contact Gill at Realweegiemidget Reviews here.
  • We won’t accept posts that are uncomplimentary or disrespectful.
  • You can only submit two posts for the blogathon.
  • Add your Twitter username so we can promote your post.
  • A full list of blogs and review choices will be posted on a separate page and updated regularly.
  • Only original and never before published posts will be accepted.
  • Send your link to your post link to Gill or me on the days of the blogathon.
  • Note we will be publishing all the links on both my WordPress blog and Gill’s one on each day of the blogathon, this may be on different days due to those different time zones! It’s the Blogathon That Never Sleeps. But your link will be published on both our blogs.
  • We are not accepting derogatory posts.

  1. So…dear Gill and Rebecca…I’m in – of course but I’m taking this luck of the draw one step further…njahahaha….I will give you just the first letters of my two movies, one of odd year and one and even year – in that way you two won’t really know which movies I’m offering but I also can’t cheat and change my mind.
    So even year: B T (2006)
    Odd year: O R (2003)
    Once you’ve tossed the coin I’ll let you know which ones they are.
    Sound good?
