Gone Too Soon blogathon this weekend, Mar. 9 and 10

I’m very excited that next the Gone Too Soon blogathon has almost arrived. Over 30 bloggers have signed up to participate, so we will have an awesome group of article.

The way it will work is I will create a post early on Friday, Mar. 9, and as bloggers write their articles they will comment with a link to their post on my post. I will then post your link on the blog page so everyone will be able to read and comment.

If you have not already signed up, or haven’t picked someone by Friday, that is okay. Anyone is able to jump in during the blog party. If you already have an actor to write about, and feel inspired later on while the blogathon is still going on, feel free to write another post.

For those of you who still want to participate but can’t think of an actor who isn’t taken, here is a list of suggestions that aren’t taken: 

Nick Adams, Fatty Arbuckle, Lon Chaney, Dorothy Dandridge, Karl Dane, Bobby Darin, Jeanne Eagles, George Gershwin, Elizabeth Hartman, John Hodiak, Jeffrey Hunter, Barbara La Marr, Carole Landis, Mario Lanza, Charles Emmett Mack, Martha Mansfield, Marie McDonald,  Glenn Miller, Janet Munro, Ricky Nelson, Mable Normand, Elvis Pressley, Marie Provost, George Reeves, Inger Stevens, Judy Tyler, Sharon Tate

Here are the days writers are to post on:

    • I wanted to write about 50’s/60’s soul singer Sam Cooke, but wasn’t sure if he would fit era wise, if ya get my drift. He is a contemporary of Elvis…


  1. It’s not too late to get in on this is it? Really interested in looking at Maggie McNamara, especially since one of my favorite movies is The Moon is Blue!
