...OPEN CALL TO ALL GINGEROLOGISTS!!!

...the FIRST order of business, as Miss Tanka notes so divinely, is this... y'all may not be aware that Gingerology is sneaking up on it's FIFTH anniversary...or birthday... or whatever... which is SO awesome, in that y'all have followed here for so long... a VERRRRY sincere THANKS from the bottom of Hu's Ginger-riddled heart!!!
It's SO easy to manage a blog dedicated to the Beautiful Science of Miss Ginger Rogers! It TRULY 'writes' itself most of the time! And y'all are the KEY to what happens here...I mean, if I posted Ginger stuff and nobody showed up, I'd still be happy with Ginger stuff... but DANG, it's so cool to be part of the Ginger Community, and be able to share all the awesome topics which our girl is a part of...and MOST important, to 'turn folks onto' Ginger and her unparalleled career!!! And of course, FaceBook has just elevated this practice to a CULT status... but a GOOD kind of cult.. ;-) 

...SECONDLY, Call all your friends, neighbors, and next-of-kin!!! ...as it's time to announce...

THE FIRST ANNUAL GINGEROLOGY BLOG-A-THON!!!!

...now, WHAT exactly is a 'blog-a-thon'? Well... after participating in Margaret Perry's awesome "Kate-a-thon" a few weeks back, it's simply THIS: an open call to all of YOU to submit your Gingery posts, thoughts, pics, reviews, you name it! And I can either post them here, OR, if you have a blog, I can simply link to it when you post it!!!

Now, obviously there are LOTS of G-ologists (and...those not so much) over on FaceBook, and as such, I'll post this link over there as well for an 'open invite' to participate! As a result, I'll be lining up things here and over there.

...um, you're right, Ginger... HOW am I going to keep UP with all this stuff, when I have issues even posting more than once a week? WELL... here's how it's going down, y'all... I'm going to use the 'top left' field just under the Gold Tanka Gingerology Image above (hope that explains it) to list WHO is doing WHAT, and WHEN.  Now, if you just need me to link to your blog post, easy nuff!  BUT, for those who do NOT blog, but want to contribute, just 'private message' (PM) me over on FB and we can figure out what to do... if we need an 'Option C', then just reply to this post...we'll 'git r' done' regarding any submission you wish to...submit!

So, WHAT are we looking for? EASY! ANYthing you want to expound upon regarding Ginger! A movie review, a song of hers you enjoy, specific aspects of her career, for example, her stint as Dolly Levi in Hello, Dolly!, her 'social life', her faith, her dance style, her artsy-craftyness, her driving skills, her cooking prowess, her hair styles through the years, her fashion, etc. etc. etc..... as long as it's Gingery!!!   Only two rules... NO cursing and NO 'swarthyness', as we obviously run a respectable ship here for Miss Rogers...

...oh, yes,,, WHEN is all of this taking place? Well, the most appropriate time period is from July 5 to July 16...SO, if you have your submission ready to go by that time frame, it would be AWESOME... I'll post and/or link stuff then.... ALTHOUGH, I believe I'll be at the beach around Ginger's birthday, so, the time frame IS subject to change...or be extended...or whatever...

With that, PLEASE participate if at all possible... it doesn't have to be a thesis or anything, and ANY reasonable category is valid... HAVE AT IT, Y'ALL!!!

AAAAAND...contact me with any questions or suggestions... Thanks!

KIG, y'all!!!

Hu
