The Noughties Blogfest

I wrote a Review-Of-The-Year type post of my favourite Films/TV/Music/Books/Comics etc at the end of last year, and I enjoyed the process enough that I decided to continue writing them working backwards, one per month.

It was largely an excuse to watch lots of DVDs, re-read old comics and reacquaint myself with music that I like, but now that I have almost finished writing for a whole decade I would like to do something with these posts.

So I am announcing today that on the 14th of November I will be holding The Noughties Blogfest.


The blog post for 2000 will go up on the last day of October and then on the 14th of November I invite you to tell me about your favourite things from the Noughties.

Choose one thing from each year from 2000 to 2009, be it a film, a TV show, a radio show, a particular episode of a TV or radio show, a piece of theatre, a book, a comic, a song, an album, a gig, a piece of artwork, something online or something else entirely, and then tell us what you love about it.

If it helps, my posts on 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001 and 2000, may jog your memory...

Here are the details on how to take part:

Leave your name and link on the linky below.

• Feel free to publicise the blogfest on your blog, facebook, twitter, etc and post the above image on your blog if you wish.

• On the 14th of November post a favourite something for each year 2000-2009, and tell us what you love about each of them.

• Visit as many other participating bloggers as you can. Compare, contrast and comment on their choices.

I like that idea! And it's one of the few days in November I don't already have something scheduled. (Yeah, I have things booked all the way in March of next year!) I have a guest post this Friday, but I can plug it next Monday.

Thanks Alex, glad to have you aboard.

And that is some impressive scheduling!

Thanks MJ, so am I!

Donna Hole said...

Pretty cool. I'll have to think about this; I've signed up for so many things I'm a little overwhelmed - and been thinking about a bloging/writing hiatus.

I did post it in my community events calendar in my sidebar. Good luck with the blogfest :)

Nice to meet you Dave.
