Nostalgiathon Blogathon – Introduction

Nostalgiathon 2012 bannerThis has been a few months in the making but the wrapper is finally ready to be pulled off of…

NOSTALGIATHON 2012

In what originated as a flippant remark between Misty of Cinema Schminema and me, Nostalgiathon is finally here.

Allow me to explain!

The purpose of Nostalgiathon is to relive things from your childhood through the eyes of an adult. Since Andy Watches Movies and Cinema Schminema are both movie-focused blogs, we will be covering movies, but books, TV shows, whatever else are all fair game if you’d like to participate.

“How do I participate?” you may be wondering…It’s easy!

  • If you want to write a post for Nostalgiathon, just put the words “Nostalgiathon” in the title of the post and write a little bit about your feelings of the source material as a kid and how it holds up now
  • Use the following badge within the post https://andywatchesmovies.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/nostalgiathon1.jpg
  • Link back to this post here on Andy Watches Movies (or the corresponding post on Cinema Schminema once she gets her power back)
  • Send Misty (cinemaschminema@gmail.com) or me (andy@andywatchesmovies.com) an email to make sure that we compile your post on our sites
  • [Update] There is no end date for Nostalgiathon posts, so feel free to participate!

I’ll have my first post for Nostalgiathon 2012 up soon to kick things off. [Update – First post is live!] I hope you all participate!

I’m giving away an Amazon gift card! [CLOSED]

I turned 30 on Sunday and as a result, I’m feeling old generous! Turning 30 is kind of a milestone (and since I missed my site’s 6 month anniversary because I wasn’t paying attention), I wanted to share the love with all of you and hopefully gain a few new faces by giving away $30 for turning 30. The contest will be starting immediately and running until October 15th, so there’s plenty of time for you to enter.

[UPDATE]

Congrats to the winner, Mr Rumsey who hedged out a win by one…single…point!

A HUGE thank you to everyone that participated, I love you all
