2019 Movie Blog-a-Thons

If you aren’t familiar with this concept, a “Blog-A-Thon” is essentially a collection of bloggers who write about a particular topic at a certain time.  Think of it as a blogging version of a “pot-luck dinner;” everybody contributes something and in return gets to enjoy and comment on the works of others. I’ve become a huge fan of blog-a-thons, and I look forward to being part of as many of them as I can.

Having said that, here’s a list of blog-a-thons in which Dubsism is proud to have been included in 2019:
