Announcing the 8th Annual Tolkien Blog Party!

Good morning, fellow Tolkien fans!  The time has come to announce my eighth Tolkien Blog Party.  So I shall.


Ahem.  Hear ye, hear ye!  Let it be known that Hamlette shall be hosting her annual Tolkien Blog Party Sept. 20-26 this year, right here at The Edge of the Precipice.  And YOU are invited to join it!


I had such fun with last year's party, with people contributing all manner of nifty posts, that I'm going to run this year's party the same way.  I'll host a giveaway and a game or two, and I'll provide the official tag.  But YOU can contribute to the festivities too!


You can contribute any NEW Tolkien-related post to the party. (Don't link to stuff you posted years ago, or even for last year's party.)  Anything Tolkien-related is fair game, even if it doesn't involve Middle-earth. You could review one of his books, share your thoughts on the movies, discuss how his works have inspired you, whatever!


There's no sign-up sheet.  You can toss ideas around in the comments here if you want to, and you're definitely welcome to share what you've decided to post about.  But you don't have to.  During the party, I'll have a widget for you to use to share links to your contributions, just like last year.


Please share any (or all) of these blog party buttons on your own blog to help spread the word about the party.  The more, the merrier, after all!

  1. I finally will have my head in order enough to contribute this year, but I have no idea what I will write about yet. Still, I look forward to it. ;)

  3. Yipee!! I think I want to write about the movie Tolkien (2019) this year, so I'll see if I have the time.

    Oh and the buttons this year are awesome! I mean, they're always cool, but I really like these. :-)

    1. MC, that sounds awesome! I still haven't seen it, so I'd love to hear what you think of it.

      These are all Tolkien's own drawings, which I've snurched sections of for buttons.

  6. Ooooh yayayayayay! I'm so excited about this! I love your party every year and I'm especially excited this year. :D

    I'm not sure as to what I will write about... probably 15 reasons why everyone should watch the movies AND read the books. Or something like that.

    1. Kendra, this year just needs all the cheerful things to look forward to that it can get, don't you think?

      That sounds like a perfectly jolly post idea! I dig it.

  7. I jest not: I have thought of this blog party Multiple Times over the past months and felt so encouraged by said thought. This will be exactly what I need at this time in 2020. So thank you. 😁

    2. Just finished the writing for my non-tag post! (I was hoping to get at least one post done in addition to the tag, so now at least I can be sure that I will.) Now to make it All Pretty with pictures and such. :D

    3. Well, you're ahead of me! I have ideas for some posts, but haven't actually gotten anything written down yet. (This is entirely the fault of a certain actor whose birthday it is today, and who soaked up all my blogging time so far this week with his birthday movie review.)

  9. I've been wanting to do this blog party for ages, but always end up missing it!

    I'm going to review all 3 of the Peter Jackson films. I've done The Hobbit series and I probably should have reviewed LOTR ages ago.
