The Charlie Chaplin Blogathon Has Arrived!

14 Apr

I am so grateful to Domi from Little Bits of Classics for asking me to co-host this event and am equally excited to read what everyone has contributed! Chaplin is an actor/comedian/director/writer/composer whose work I have grown to admire the more I know about him and the more I see (and revisit) his body of work. Thank you all for increasing my knowledge and appreciation of him!

As your posts come in, I will add the link to your post under the appropriate heading: Films, Life, Misc. Be sure to come back for more posts as they are added during the next three days.

      No problem at all! We ended up creating one master list and adding them under different headings, so your timing works perfectly. Looking forward to reading it!
