Announcing the Classic TV Villain Blogathon!

Classic TV villains...they're so bad, they're good!

On February 18-19, the Classic TV Blog Association will pay tribute to some of television's best baddies by hosting the Classic TV Villain Blogathon.

If you want to participate, please make sure your blog complies with the Classic TV Blog Association's guidelines (click here for details). Then, send an e-mail to: classic.tv.blog.assoc@gmail.com. Include the title and web address of your blog--and specify what villain you want to profile. No duplicate villains will be accepted, so don't delay if you want to write about a favorite. The deadline for entries is February 16th.

We plan to produce a promotional slide show for YouTube. If you want your baddie to be included, send a high quality, non-copyrighted photo to the Association's e-mail address by January 18th.

Finally, if you want to join the Classic TV Blog Association, it's easy and you'll meet (virtually) some fabulous--and knowledgeable--TV fans. Just review our guidelines and let us know you're interested.
