Announcing POTTERWEEK!

SONORUS On this 7th day of the 7th month, we are announcing Potterweek! Potterweek is a link up for the cleverest witches and wizards on the web. During Potterweek, we’re going to celebrate, speculate, and dedicate some time to all things Harry Potter!

While our name is Common Room, we aren’t a Harry Potter site and podcast. However, most of us have a deep love for the series and some of us even met through an HP community. So…

It is only fitting that we celebrate JK Rowling (and HP’s) birthday accordingly! Last year we did a photo challenge* for the entire month of July. This year we are making it a weeklong web event. Blog, Vlog, Podcast, or use social media to join in!

When Potterweek is Happening:

Here’s what you can write about, vlog about, podcast about, or share thoughts about in any way you’d like on each day of Potterweek:

25- PotterVerse (origins, meanings, anything language based)
26- PotterPeeps (characters)
27- PotterPonderings (crackpot theories, symbolism, literary analysis)
28- PotterHouse (Pottermore vs your own prediction)
29- PotterParks (experiences, wishlist, more)
30- PotterPowers (spells, charms, races)
31- PotterPotpourri (any posts that don’t fit the other topics.)

How Potterweek Works
  • Create some content based on the prompts! (Just like Sci Fi Month or Fandom Five!)
  • Use any of the graphics** on this post! The last one is a PNG!
  • Link back to us!
  • Use the hashtag everywhere to keep the convo going!
  • Tag us @comromco on social media so we can promote your Potterposts! We can’t wait to see ’em!

*You can look up hashtag #commonroombday on Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr. We had so much fun coming up with presents to get our favorite and least favorite characters from Harry Potter.

** Thanks to our Dahhhhling friend Stewie for making most of the graphics for us. :)
