Blogathon: My Movie Alphabet

Extra

Thanks to a kind recommendation, I’m hosting my first ever Blogathon! The idea is simple but trust me when I say this, deciding on a list is far more difficult – are you ready for the challenge? Those who are brave enough to take on this task, check out My Movie Alphabet for inspiration, motivation and maybe some guidelines, post your alphabet on your blog and send the link to my e-mail: mettelray@msn.com. Before you know it, your alphabet will be featured on this page.

Good luck and be creative!

PS: Use this lovely image (do you get it –ย  sea of letters?) and link back to this post so more can participate and by the end of the year, we’ll have a sea of movie alphabets!

      Not necessarily but I was thinking before 2012 ends and you know, the actual world ends and all.. isn’t this in 2012? It is, right?

        December 24 is the date we’re supposed to implode, I believe haha. I have a hole in the blog schedule on Nov 29 so I’ll add my alphabet in then. ๐Ÿ™‚

          Nice! You have lots of time to think and change your mind.. I’m looking at alphabets of others and already want to re-do mine.. So many, so many choices!

    Might join this one as well, already wrote down all the letters, but the writing and searching for images will take a while I guess.

      You can choose your own way to do it, the best way for you or whatever you like. Up to you! As long as the letters are there and preferably in an alphabetical order. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I think I’ll give this one a go as well, if that’s okay? I really like the idea of this. Can I ask a quick question though… Can you include film characters?
