When I published my review of Murder, She Wrote: The Queen’s Jewels for August’s Buzzwordathon, I announced I would be hosting a new blogathon this November. I also said more details were to follow. Well, the time has come to reveal more information about the event! As I mentioned in the aforementioned review, the theme is ‘World Television Day’. Because this particular holiday takes place on November 21st, my blogathon will happen between November 19th and November 22nd. Television is such a broad topic, so here is a list of ideas if you are interested in participating:
- Television Shows (favorite or least favorite, specific episodes, talent involved, etc.)
- TV Movies and Mini-Series
- Films based on or inspired a show (Downton Abbey: A New Era, Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, etc.)
- Books based on or inspired a TV show (Murder, She Wrote, etc.)
- Songs used in TV productions
- Sports Events (Super Bowl, Olympics, etc.)
- Televised Contests (pageants, Eurovision, etc.)
- Historical Events (Challenger Disaster, etc.)
- Podcasts or Youtube videos about TV shows
- History of Television
- Lost/Found Media related to TV (Sesame Street’s infamous Wicked Witch episode, etc.)
- Public Service Announcements (PSA) or Public Information Films (PIF)
- Commercials, Trailers, or TV Spots
Once you’ve selected an idea, take a moment to read the official rules:
- Please be respectful toward other participants and the subject(s) you’re writing about (especially if you choose to write about historical events on television).
- Please let me know in advance if you plan on publishing your post(s) earlier or later than the allotted time-frame (November 19th to 22nd).
- Only new posts will be eligible for the event.
- Because of how broad the subject of television is, I will not be allowing duplicate entries.
- There is a three-entry limit for each participant.
- All entries must be original work.
- Subjects from any genre, year, or country are allowed.
- If you’re interested in participating, please share your idea(s) in the comment section below.
- Pick one of the four banners and spread the word about the World Television Day Blogathon!
