Announcing The William Wellman Blogathon

I recently read the fantastic biography of William Wellman and found myself so inspired by the life and films of this great American director that I decided to do something about it!  More to the point, I decided to host my very first blogathon!

Announcing The William Wellman Blogathon!

Love WINGS?  Does WESTWARD THE WOMEN get your heart beating?  Want to talk about THE OX-BOW INCIDENT?  Think that Gary Cooper owes quite a bit to William Wellman and want to share your thoughts?  Go for it!  You can write about anything and everything related to William Wellman, his life, his films, and his career.

Now for the nitty gritty!  This event will run from September 10-13, 2015.  I am not assigning days for posts so feel free to post any time during the event.  Duplicates are fine so pick any topic you like!  Also, this is my first time hosting a blogathon and I am going solo so please let me know if I have forgotten anything or if you have any questions.  When the event goes live please be sure so send me a link to your posting either through email, twitter, or posting a comment to the event post on this blog.  I want to make sure you get all the credit you deserve!

So now you are itching for the chance to join in the fun!  How do I sign up, you may be asking.  Why it is very simple!  Just leave me a comment below letting me know your topic of choice and a link to your blog.  You can also tweet at me or send me an email (nowvoyaging [AT] gmail [DOT] com) with the same information.  Once you have done that feel free to take one of the fabulous banners, that Fritzi of Movies Silently has so kindly designed for the event, and post it all over the blogosphere or at the very least your corner of it!  I am so excited to host my first blogathon and I hope you will join me!

The Return of the Blog…and a Giveaway!

I am finally back to mostly normal and the house is about 80% unpacked!  To celebrate my survival of this move I have decided to hold a giveaway!  I love classic films and I love books, so why not combine the two?

I will be giving away a copy of A TOUCH OF STARDUST by Kate Alcott to ONE lucky reader!

Here is how to enter!

Leave a comment below and tell me one film that you think I should watch/blog about and why. I will pick one winner at random on April 14th so you have a whole week to enter!  Remember to include your email address because I will be contacting the winner that way.  Good luck and stay tuned for more blog entries coming soon!


Full Disclosure: This giveaway is purely my own design with no help/endorsement/support/advertising from anyone associated with A TOUCH OF STARDUST or Kate Alcott.  The copy is a private copy owned by me.  The shipping and handling will be paid for by me.  This giveaway is strictly from Now Voyaging and no one else!  🙂

A Strange Interlude…But Not for Long!

Things might be a little quiet around the blog for about a week or so because I will be moving house at the end of this week!  Which means that my TV, my DVDs and Blu Rays, and my cable will be in limbo for a few days and so I probably won’t be posting too much until after Easter.  But never fear…I shall return!

I have two posts scheduled to go up on April 2nd for the Pre-Code Blogathon so keep an eye out for those!  I will also be around on Twitter so feel free to check in on me from time to time as I attempt to unpack everything!
