Announcing the Colours Blogathon

UPDATE: For the “Live” version…head on over here... It’s a Colourful Day…a Colourful Blogathon Day…


I’ve been blogging for just over 2 years now and become addicted to Blogathons. I think it is high time I brave the hosting side of it. So…here you go:

The Colours Blogathon

8  &  9 September 2017

Megaphone2I know I’m early with announcing but I’m sooooo excited. Have another one in mind but I’ll just have to restrain myself for a few more months.

There are so many movies with a colour forming part of the title. Hence, the rule is simple: pick a movie that has a colour forming part of the title and share your thoughts. In any language. So, ‘Moulin Rouge’ would be perfectly acceptable. I’ll also accept ‘Gold’ or ‘Golden’ as colours. Likewise “Rose” will be accepted. So, I’m pretty open to colour interpretations.

Once you’ve made your selection (there are lots and lots to choose from, believe it or not), let me know which colourful title you’ve chosen together with your Blog name and URL. I’ll put you on the roster and look forward to reading your entry. Oh, and pick a banner from those below (or be colourful and create your own). I’m open to duplicates (we all have different views) as long as there aren’t too many of the same.

  1. Hey! I’m sorry but I’m going to have to pull out of this blogathon. I had to evacuate due to Hurricane Irma, and the place I’m currently staying at has no WiFi. I’m really sorry! I was looking forward to this one!

    1. Awesome! Sounds good. I’ll put you down on the list shortly. Glad to have you join in and look forward to reading your entry. Don’t worry about adding to red…it is my favourite colour. Red Riding Hood was good!

        1. Yaaay! I’ll check out your blog a bit more but it looks great from what I’ve seen. Looking forward to reading more of your posts. Can’t believe I missed your Swashathon entry….


  2. This blogathon looks very creative, I love the concept. If I may, can I write a piece about The Man With The Golden Arm from 1955?

    Thank for hosting!

    Oh, I blog at Anybody Got a Match? (

      1. For some reason I can’t use my blogspot account to comment on wordpress anymore. I’m pretty sure I could last year, but maybe I was wrong. And when I log in using wordpress it sends you to that damn wordpress blog that i didn’t want to create but had to to be able to comment on wordpress accounts. (Disgruntled, yes…) Yes please link to the Midnite Drive-In blog. And it’s the 1984 version. Haven’t seen the remake (and I don’t even know what the 1989 one is…)

        Oh, BTW, be prepared. I usual avoid being political, but the 1984 Red Dawn can’t be discussed without some political commentary.
