Me-TV's Summer of Classic TV Blogathon

As a non-cable-renting-retro-TV-loving gal, I adore Me-TV. It is our home's one stop shop for great entertainment. You can imagine my excitement when the folks at the Classic TV Blog Association and Me-TV joined forces for Me-TV's Summer of Classic TV Blogathon, which is coming your way from July 15th - 19th. I'll be talking about Columbo on the 15th, and posting links to the other content as we go along.

The Classic TV Blog Association is looking for other people to join the podcast and they also sent out this press release, so here are all the deets you need to know:

"The Classic TV Blog Association will host Me-TV's Summer of Classic TV Blogathon on July 15-19. The blogathon will consist of blog posts about TV series currently on the Me-TV schedule. A blogathon post may be: an overview of a TV series; a profile of one of the series' stars; an article on the blogger's favorite episode(s), etc. Any blogger may participate, providing that he or she complies with the family-friendly blogging guidelines of the Classic TV Blog Association.

No more than three bloggers can post about the same TV series. All posts will appear on the blogger's web site. Individuals are responsible for the content of their blog posts, to include the use of any photographs, video clips, etc. A master schedule of all blogathon posts will appear on the Classic TV Blog Association's web site. The number of participating bloggers will be limited to 60 and posting dates will be assigned to participants.

Each post will contain the following verbiage at the beginning or end: "This post is part of Me-TV's Summer of Classic TV Blogathon hosted by the Classic TV Blog Association. Click here to view more posts in this blogathon. You can also click here to learn more about Me-TV and view its summer line-up of classic TV shows."

If you're interested in participating, send an e-mail to classic.tv.blog.assoc@gmail.com with the subject line of "Me-TV Blogathon." Be sure your e-mail includes your name, blog's name and web address, and the title of your post about a TV series on Me-TV's summer schedule.

The cut-off date for accepting blogathon entries will be Friday, July 12."

I love ME-TV! So happy to have an alternative to TV Land. Also loving the new (to us, at least) Cozi TV. They play Six-Million Dollar Man, Bionic Woman, Charlie's Angels, Magnum P.I. and more. Add in retro game shows on GSN and I am so happy to have these choices!

Hey Joe! I adore Me-TV too. So glad I could be a part of this.

We don't have Cozi, so I'm very jealous. I have been hearing how great it is! Enjoy!
