The Great Villain Blogathon 2015 was exceptional.
The subject of this event may have been villainy, but there were nothing but heroes participating in and supporting The Great Villain Blogathon 2015.
In this second year of the event, the amount of enthusiasm, posts and subjects covered, went far beyond anything we expected. This time the twitter support (just go look at #GreatVillainBlogathon) was so impressive that it deserves a special thanks to the people who worked hard to spread the word and share everyone’s writing, we all really appreciate it!
Your hosts, Kristina of Speakeasy, Ruth of Silver Screenings and Karen of Shadows & Satin, think of each other as the best partners in crime anyone could ask for! It’s a joy to plan and organize such a giant party with these ladies. We learned a lot and are already planning things to make next year even bigger and better. Maybe we’ll even have t-shirts made!
The biggest thanks of all must go to the huge number of bloggers who joined us this year! We loved hearing your choices and then reading and sharing your work. We got to know lots of new people and welcomed some first-time blogathon participants, hope you all had fun and will join us and other blogathons in the future. And you should all be proud to know that we heard from tons of readers who were excited about finding all these new blogs, fellow movie lovers and good writers to follow. Maybe evil does pay after all?
A round of applause for all of you for making this event such a massive success!
In this year’s posts, male villains outnumbered females 2:1, there were 3 non-humans (blobs, birds and a truck), and Raymond Burr and Bette Davis were the most popular actors. We were visited by cretins from Bond, Harry Potter, high school, history and many comic book universes, and other movies of every era and genre. A second year went by with nobody daring to talk about Darth Vader; maybe next time one of you chickens will work up the nerve.
The Great Villain Blogathon will be back same time next year, so make a note in your calendars now, it’s never too soon to start thinking about which nasty nogoodnik you’ll write about. The ones who got left out this time will no doubt be fuming and plotting revenge until next April:
(well, some might be too busy admiring themselves to plot revenge)
This page, the original 2015 announcement, has been updated to archive all the daily recaps and all the post links for you to bookmark and enjoy anytime, and any bloggers who post after this will be added to that list.
Thanks again everybody, you were wicked good. See you next April…
