Jill and Michael Present: TCM Summer Under the Stars Blogathon 2013!

2012 TCM Summer Under the Stars BannerFor classic movie lovers, TCM’s annual Summer Under the Stars month-long programming event is like Christmas, the Oscars, the Super Bowl, and every Hollywood red carpet gala rolled into one. For 31 days, fans are treated to an embarrassment of cinematic riches – a collection of films featuring the stars we love, the stars we discover for the first time, the stars we’ve always wanted to get to know better … or all of the above.

After last year’s smash blogathon success, Jill and I knew that we had to host again and revel in the joy that our fellow bloggers and film-lovers feel throughout the month.

Thus we bring back the TCM Summer Under the Stars Blogathon for its second consecutive appearance! As was the case last year – when over 60 bloggers contributed over 175 entries – the hosting duties will be shared between …

Two great Bloggers that Blog great together! All we need now is … you!

At the bottom of this page is the TCM Summer Under the Stars schedule for its entire 2013 run. Pick a movie … pick a star … pick a whole day … pick five … pick ten … whatever! This is a month-long blogathon and we want to showcase as many bloggers as many times as we can. And because your picks will coincide with their respective SUTS days, you can plan as far in advance as you need to.

Whether your medium is the long form written word, stories in pictures, poetry, or video tributes, we want you to make the great Summer Under the Stars event even greater.

The process is crazy simple:

• Make your pick (did we mention you can pick as many as you want?)

• Send us an email to (tcmSUTSblogathon@hotmail.com) as far in advance of your pick’s SUTS day (or days!) as possible. Include your picks and the name of your blog (with the url)

• We will send you a banner to add to your blog (if you would be so kind)

• The day before your particular SUTS day (or sooner if you have it), send us the link to your post. On your SUTS day, we will add your link to our sites, as well as promote your blog via our Twitter feed and Facebook page. (While you’re at it, follow us like us!)

• Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

And by the way, there are no such things as duplicate entries here. Everyone has a unique voice. If ten people want to write about It Happened One Night (Frank Capra, 1934) on August 25th, or if ten people want to pay homage to Doris Day on August 2, we don’t see those as ten duplicate posts – we see them as ten unique perspectives on one particular subject, and we can’t wait to see them all.

Won’t you please join us?

Jill and Michael
