Thanks so much to all who joined in any way! See you next year.
Eighteen months after the idea for Reel Infatuation was hatched, and a year after the first blogathon, we’re back for round two!
Our core belief remains the same: If there’s one thing better than sharing your character crushes with the Internet-at-large, it’s reading about other people’s fictional affinities. Even if you aren’t contributing to RI17, we hope you’ll read and enjoy the fun and diverse posts that will be shared during the blogathon. You can also tweet your #reelinfatuation #charactercrushes to @reelinfatuation during or after this weekend.
Let’s get this party started!
It’s almost time for the 2017 Reel Infatuation Blogathon. Squee! If you’d like to sign up, go here.

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?
SIGN UP FORM:
We hope you’re able to join us June 23-25!
