The Great Recasting Update [IMPORTANT for participants]

PLEASE READ THIS POST IF YOU HAVE SIGNED UP FOR THE GREAT RECASTING BLOGATHON.


Before I get into the update, I want to make a very quick announcement/apology. You might be aware of the fact that I missed the movie review I was supposed to post last Sunday. I apologize for missing it. I also want to announce that the SMR will not return this Sunday, either, but the following Sunday after what will be by then a month long hiatus. I don't want to spam you with posts in the following days, and I don't want to make conflicts with the Fri-Sat blogathon. Also, within this next week I'm going to be making some dramatic changes to the interface of this blog. Lucy's birthday celebration will also begin at the beginning of August...So SMR won't be back for another two weeks.

That being said, I'll get on with the update for the blogathon. Nat, who I'm co-hosting with, did a similar post on her blog so I'm crossing my fingers that between both of our posts you will be aware of which day to post on.

As I said: this is a two day blogathon and we have split the list of thirty-four participants between the both of us. I'm hosting Friday, the 27th, and Nat is taking Saturday, the 28th. We have assigned each participant a date. If this date doesn't work for you, let us know as soon as possible so we can fix it. (Bear in mind conflicts can also be fixed with scheduling). Comments on this post or Nat's are greatly appreciated to let us know if your date will work. If not, we'll be assuming your assigned date works for you! :)

Those that are being hosted by me can start leaving their links on this post or my own entry when it comes up on Friday. The same applies to those being hosed by Nat, except you should leave links on HER blog. If this is confusing to you in anyway please let us know.

Okay, that's it. Once again: all comments with a thumbs up are helpful because we know if you saw this post or not. If you have any questions, complaints, need to switch the date, ANYTHING, please comment now. Or forever hold your peace. 

All of that being said, Nat and I are super super excited and we hope everything's going to work out fantastic! :D

Don't anticipate any problems with writing it for Friday. This will give me something to do Thursday night when I get home from work (other than watching my Washington Nationals, of course).

Thank you so much for hosting such a wonderful blogathon. I really enjoyed taking part and I hope you do something similar in the future! Maybe you could make it an annual thing? :D

Hi Rianna, I just emailed but thought it might be good to post here too. I switched my Wall Street post from my Warren William site to Immortal Ephemera (though it still stars Warren William!) and just posted, here: http://immortalephemera.com/21005/great-recasting-blogathon-wall-street-1933/.

Thank you again and my apologies for my tardiness and the unannounced venue change.

I'm a little late, too. I thought that we can post our version on either blogathon day though. Anyway, here's my recasting of Inglourious Basterds (2009) http://eternityofdream.blogspot.com/2012/07/the-great-recasting-blogathon.html

Thanks for hosting this!
