"Loving Lucy" Blogathon Coming this August!

August 6, 2011 marks legendary comedienne Lucille Ball's 100th birthday, and the bloggin' crew at True Classics: The ABCs of Classic Film is celebrating by hosting a "Loving Lucy" Blogathon!

Some wonderful bloggers have already signed up to participate, and we welcome you to join us that day as we commemorate Lucy's memorable life and career. The rules are simple: sometime prior to or on August 6th, post an entry on your blog discussing something Lucy-related. That’s it! Obviously, as we're all a bunch of classic movie-loving nuts here in the CMBA, we would love to see a lot of entries discussing Lucy's many wide-ranging film roles (she wasn't called "the queen of the Bs" for nothing!). But you can write about anything in the "Lucy" category that piques your interest—her television shows, her radio career, fashion, aspects of her personal life, her behind-the-scenes role as the first woman to head a major production studio … anything about Lucy that you find particularly fascinating. You can do a photo post, a podcast, an interview—let your imagination (and your ambition!) run wild.

You can find more information and promotional banners here: And if you're interested in participating, leave a comment or shoot us an email and we'll add your blog to our growing list of contributors!

(Please note that although True Classics is a CMBA member, this is not a CMBA-sponsored blogathon.)
