Upcoming Comet blogathon: Child Stars

Hello folks,

No, this isn’t an April Fools joke.  Comet Over Hollywood is hosting it’s second blogathon.

It’s been nearly a year since I held my first blogathon: “Gone Too Soon” honoring actors who passed away before the age of 50.

My sophomore blogathon effort will be recognizing child stars.

This includes any child actor or actress who performed in films or on television. Topics can vary from a specific individual, non-profits who help young actors or to general treatment of children in the Golden Era.

This post is to gauge interest, but if you would like to go ahead and reserve your topic, feel free to leave a comment doing so.

I’m scheduling the blogathon Friday, May 24 through Sunday, May 26, 2013.

I look forward to hearing your post ideas and will post blog banners in mid-April. Thank you all for reading Comet Over Hollywood.

  1. I’d like to do either Natalie Wood or Sandra Dee…can you put me down for both, and I’ll let you know in advance which I settle on?


  2. Hi, Jessica! If possible, I’d like to write about both the 1940s child actors Dean Stockwell and Roddy MacDowall.


  3. LOL!! Jessica – my choice is George Winslow, not George Orwell. 😀 That made me laugh!! Anyway – when you can, please change the name of my site to ONCE UPON A SCREEN. LOL!
