Announcing the 2017 Reel Infatuation Blogathon!

Sometimes an experience is so much fun that you cannot wait to do it again. This impulse is one of the reasons why people keep revisiting amusement parks and beaches, museums and restaurants. The comfort of the familiar, when hitched to the promise of a fresh, unpredictable variation, is pretty thrilling to the average human.

We’re no different. Thus…

while a blogathon is marvelous, a yearly blogathon is one step  better on the scale from here to fabulous!

On that note, along with my co-hostess with the mostest, Ruth of Silver Screenings, I’m happy to announce the return of the Reel Infatuation Blogathon!

It’s time to sharpen your pencils and start thinking about your favorite character crushes. They can come from film, television, or books. Remember: the character is the thing. We want to hear about specific character crushes, not generically dreamy performers. To learn more about the concept behind Reel Infatuation, go here. If you’re joining us for the first time this year, or would prefer to participate without writing a blog post, please check out last year’s blogathon announcement for pertinent details.

We will be updating this website and other social media accounts over the coming weeks, so please check back often to stay in the loop.

Ruth designed six blogathon banners for use on your blogs/social media platforms. We’ll be releasing them two at a time, because what would life (or cinema) be without a little anticipation and mystery?

First up? Darren McGavin and Gloria Swanson. Aren’t they purty?

Announcing…the Reel Infatuation Blogathon (and Pop Culture Platform)!

Fictional characters. Sometimes you like them, sometimes you loathe them, and sometimes you’re half in love with them. Want to get to know someone in a hurry? Swap character crush stories; it’s the ultimate icebreaker!

Reel Infatuation is a reader participation virtual cyclopedia of character crushes. It’s a symbiotic, interactive platform built on the old-fashioned notion of give-and-take. We want to hear all about your film, television, and literary loves! Are your stories sweet, silly, embarrassing, or seemingly inexplicable? Share ’em! First crushes, old crushes, new crushes? Bring ’em on! You show us yours, and we’ll show you ours!
