Gird your loins. AWESOME-tober-fest is coming.

Awesometoberfest banner

Well, well, well. It’s that time of year. Friday is October 1st. You know what that means? Yes, it’s
AWESOME-tober-fest time. For those that don’t know, AWESOME-tober-fest is this blog’s month long celebration of Halloween. There will be at least 1 post every weekday until Halloween.

AWESOME-tober-fest has been going on since 2007.  You can check out all of my AWESOME-tober-fest articles by clicking the above banner. There’s lots of content, so have at it.

The last few years I’ve joined Shawn Robare, John Rozum and company for the Countdown to Halloween:


Countdown to Halloween is a collection of hundreds of blogs that have come together to celebrate Halloween. There are thousands of posts going on all through October, so it’s fun to go to Countdown and see what other people are doing.

Anyway, I started doing overall themes for AWESOME-tober-fest in 2008.  Last year I did Frankenstein as my overall theme.  This year, it’s werewolves.  Werewolves are my favorite monster so I’m extra excited to get to this year’s content.  Each week in October will have a subtheme.  On Friday, I’ll look at crazy werewolf movie posters.  Then the week of Oct 6, I’ll look at werewolves in comic books.  The week of Oct 11 will be werewolf novels.  Oct 18 will review werewolf TV shows and the final week of AWESOME-tober-fest will review a bunch of werewolf movies including the original Universal Studios films.  It should be a blast, so come check back here every day in October.

Also, check out the blog Countdown to Halloween for more Halloween-y, bloggy AWESOMEness.
