I'd like for you all to join me! The requirements for participating in this event are really simple: all you have to do is write something about western movies, western actors, or pretty much just western anything. It can be a movie review, a post about your favorite western actor, a list of your favorite westerns-- anything you want.
What qualifies a movie as a western?
Basically a western is any movie that takes place in the American West in the late 18th century to the early 19th century. They come in all different shapes and sizes, but most are characterized by cowboys, cattle drives, outlaws, lawmen, Indians, cavalry scouts.....you get the picture.
Post your reviews (or whatever you've written) on your own blog during the week, then at the end of the week you can comment back here on this post with a link to your posts and I'll share everyone's contributions then. Sound good?
I'll try to post a review of a western movie every day during the week, and maybe a guest post or two as well.
Here are some buttons to get the word out!
|Yes, I know this isn't really a western. I just had to make one of Mike and Sully. ;-P|
And my favorite, Newt. :-)
I hope you decide to participate-- I think it's going to be a wild good time!
