Debuts Blogathon Wrap Up

debuts collage 2

Well there we go, it’s all done and dusted. This blogathon, which I co-hosted with Mark from Three Rows Back, has been a great experience. I’ve had the pleasure of chatting with some great bloggers, some familiar, some not-so familiar and I think it’s been a great success. There have been some fantastic posts, covering a wide range of directors and films, which is exactly what Mark and I were hoping for. There are some classics in there and also some directors I hadn’t even heard of, which has helped me broaden my knowledge that little bit more.


First of all I would like to say thanks to Mark for proposing the idea of doing the blogathon in the first place. I’d toyed with the idea of a blogathon for a while but didn’t really know what to do and how to go about organising it, but Mark gave me the impetus to do that. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with him and if you don’t follow his great blog already, I urge you to do so.

And of course an enormous thank you to everyone who has taken the time to get involved. I know you all have busy lives and are busy tending to your own blogs, but we’ve both been overwhelmed with the response, enthusiasm and quality of the work produced. Every piece was a belter.

Here is a list of all the posts in the blogathon…

Again, thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to contribute. This has been a lot of fun, and we may well run another blogathon in the future. If we do, we hope to see you there.

  1. This was definitely a lot of fun. For me, it worked well because it was my debut for a first-run blogathon about debuts. This has helped with getting more recognition for what I have to offer in terms of film reviews.

    Thank you guys for this great opportunity.

  2. Couldn’t have said it better myself Chris. Thank you for being a brilliant co-host and for getting your hands dirty with the admin to get this thing off the ground. It’s been a blast and I hope we can do another one in the future. I’m going to take a few days off I think!

    Good job guys, read a lot of your ‘Debuts’ write-ups, would have loved to see Michael Bay’s ‘Bad Boys’ in there, maybe next time!

    Thanks for hosting. It let me tackle a film I’ve reviewed and talked about quite a bit in a completely different way. Next up… composers? Grips? Extras? Catering?
