I’m sure our buddy Richard Kirkham aka 70s Richard wouldn’t mind if I include this link to his post on “The Spy Who Loved Me!”

And last but not least, if anyone is looking for previous articles that I’ve written on Bond, I’ve done posts on all 22 films, plus “Never Say Never Again” in my series “James Bond: Classic, Cheese or Crap?” :D ! You can find all of those links by browsing the James Bond Central Category!

Well, that’s it for our first week. I’m sure that’s more than enough to keep you Bond fans busy this weekend!! :D

We’ll be back next week with more! And if anyone would like to utilize the banner below, or crop it to include in new posts you’re planning on submitting, the help in promoting the Blog-A-Thon would be much appreciated! See you all again here next week!!

  1. Yeh, the fun begins. I’ve been to most of the links so far, still got a couple to get to but i am having some fun.

  2. Glad to see people are rallying behind this. Not that it’s a surprise. :)

    Well, you know I haven’t really seen much in the way of Bond, so I can’t pitch in on the blogging front yet, but I’d been thinking of adding 007 to the ranks of my logo wallpapers for a while. Seemed like an opportune time. I’ve got three of ‘em up here: http://morganrlewis.deviantart.com/

    I wanted to do a S.P.E.C.T.R.E. wallpaper or two as well, since I know they have a logo, but I wasn’t able to find a good look at an official design — Google image search just turns up dozens of fan-art variations, impossible to determine just what it should actually look like.

  3. Congratulations on the nomination for best blogathon. Since I encouraged you and participated in the obligation, I’m going to pat myself on the back a little also.

    • LOL! Definitely a part of that :D No doubt. If I wind up bringing the award home, you can have a piece of it too. ;)

      And thanks man… got a full post on all that stuff coming up later this morning…
