To Dos Day - Supporting Actress Blogathon Edition


Item #1: SCREEN NATHANIEL'S FABULOUS TEASER FOR THE SUPPORTING ACTRESS BLOGATHON (1.4.09).
Nathaniel has constructed the most delicious video swirl of 2008's Supporting Actressness to whet your appetite for this weekend's Supporting Actress Blogathon. Watch it. Watch it again. And then....

Item #2: PREPARE YOUR POST FOR THE SUPPORTING ACTRESS BLOGATHON.
StinkyLulu's 3rd Annual Supporting Actress Blogathon - The Class of 2008 will be happening in a mere five days. And posts are already beginning to stream in. I do hope that each and every one of you lovely readers are contemplating which of 2008's actresses at the edge have most earned your appreciation and affection and are preparing your entry so that you can...

Item #3: SEND YOUR POST NO LATER THAN THE CRACK OF DAWN ON SUNDAY (1.4.09).
The deadline is simple: email the link for your post to me, no later than the crack of dawn (your time) on the Sunday of the blogathon. (I will, of course, be adding posts throughout the day but it will really help me to have as many as possible as soon as possible.) You do NOT need to confirm your participation with me prior to sending your post. Likewise, you do NOT need to "sign up" to cover this or that performer. You also are NOT limited to one post in the blogathon. I only ask that you limit yourself to profiling one performance in each post. The event is really a "more the merrier" sort of fandango, and remember too to...

Item #4: USE THIS OPPORTUNITY PROMOTE YOUR FAVORITE BIT OF SUPPORTING ACTRESSNESS IN 2008, NO MATTER THE "QUALITY" OF THE FILM OR THE USUAL FOCUS OF YOUR BLOG.
One of the most fun parts of the blogathon each year is seeing the range of performances highlighted by such a diverse crew of web writers. So, again, please do not feel limited to profiling "contender" performances or only top-shelf performers. This is our chance to hear about great actressing in all genres and from all corners of the cinematic landscape. So, please feel free to shock us or surprise us or challenge us or amuse us with your pick of a truly noteworthy bit of actressing at the edges. And remember too that all web writers are welcome to this blog party, no matter the usual focus of your blog. We just want to see you there! Still uncertain? Just...

Item #5: PEEK AT "THE CLASS OF 2006" and "THE CLASS OF 2007" BLOGATHONS FOR INSPIRATION.
One of the delights of hosting a blogathon is that, for all the "rules" or "guidelines" you put out there, there really are no rules and the only guidelines that end up mattering are those that folks choose to follow. As proof I refer you to our two previous adventures: The Class of 2007 and The Class of 2006. Anything goes; it's up to you.

Item #6: JOIN THE FUN IN CELEBRATING "THE CLASS OF 2008" BY POSTING, LINKING TO AND COMMENTING ON THE 3rd ANNUAL SUPPORTING ACTRESS BLOGATHON.

Even if you don't plan to participate by posting in the blogathon (and, really, lovely reader, why on earth wouldn't you), I do hope you'll consider beating the drum and spreading the word about the event. Use one of my handy little promo graphics (poster, panel, button). Embed Nathaniel's video. Comment promiscuously on the blogathon posts. But please do consider spreading the word however feels right to you. (Forgive me, but I've got an especially bad case of hostess panic -- it's so early this year, so close to New Year's, people will forget and nobody'll post, blah blah blah.) Nonetheless, I ask your help in promoting the Blogathon -- all through this week and into next. It's a great way to ring a fabulous new year of actressing at the edges!


What do you think, lovelies?

Will we see you there?
RSVP in comments.
But do keep "your date" (ie. who you'll be posting on) a secret...
We love the surprises...
