Recently Fritzi over at Movies Silently published a post about growing the brand of your particular blog. This got me thinking…
Last week sometime, I missed the actual date because WordPress didn’t remind me and I have toddler brain (it’s a thing), I reached one year of blogging. This is shocking to me because when I started this blog a year ago I had no idea what it would become or the people that I would meet because of it. I have truly enjoyed every moment of blogging this last year and I want to thank every person who came to read a post, everyone who left a comment, and every blogger who welcomed me into their community.
Back to Fritzi…moving forward I want to try to focus in on what my aim is with this blog. I started this blog because I have loved classic film for as long as I can remember and I wanted to find a way to share that love. I also knew that when it came to the classic films that I love, I didn’t know half of what I wanted to about their history and the men and women who made them.
So what are we doing here? I am not a classic film expert by any means. But I am trying to expand my horizons and increase my knowledge every day. That means I watch a lot of movies, read a ton of books, and listen to hours of podcasts all in an effort to learn about and enjoy classic films.
Moving forward I will of course be continuing with posts about films, podcasts, and books. I will also still be putting up book and DVD hauls as I get them. I will of course be continuing to participate in blogathons! One thing that I think will be going by the wayside is the monthly TCM guide. In its place I am going to try putting up monthly wrap-ups with my thoughts on what I have learned and discovered in the previous thirty days.
I am not a scholar, I am a classic film fan just like you and this is my journey of discovery. Care to join me?
