How do I fix a light fixture which causes a bulb to blow out, but only after a month or so?

I have a light fixture, a ceiling chandelier, which takes six 60-watt light bulbs, ordinary screw-in bulbs. One of the lights keeps blowing out. Not immediately but after a few weeks or a month. Andd once or twice it happened when I flick on the switch. The other five light sockets seem to be fine. I can understand if I had an immediate short circuit that blew out the bulb as soon as I turn on the swtich. But what could be causing this problem of substantially shorter life?
