|Deborah can't believe it's been year.|
Part of me can't believe it's been a full year already, and another part feels like I've been doing this forever. :) A lot has happened since then.
For one, I think I've gotten a little better at blogging and discovering how the interface works. For this post, I was scrolling through my earliest blogs and shaking my head because it seemed as if I barely understood anything about how blogging works. (Also, I had like zilch followers so it made my nearly daily posts all together stupider, but hey, I did have a blogging addiction.) For another, blogging has done something fabulous: it's encouraged me to branch out and check out lots of new actors. My favorite list has changed so much in the past year. Some things have been constant, and will always be (*cough cough* Lucy), but I've also discovered a lot of other fabulous people. Remember my Greer Garson epiphany? My wake up call to Deborah Kerr? And most recently, Julie Perfect Andrews? I kind of wonder if this would have happened if I didn't have this blog. Writing posts and reading other blogs have made me want to check out new people, and my followers are absolutely fantastic with recommendations and such.
Perhaps the best thing about blogging is discussing classic film with people who understand how you feel about it, and by this I mean you, followers! I'm almost ten followers away from reaching 100, which is a long way from when nobody followed me. I have also especially made great blogging pals like Bette and Natalie and we've collaborated on things and discussed movies and it's incredible to know that there are actually people my age who love old movies like I do. And there are so many awesome blogs on here to read, just look at my blogroll.
And I have gained extremely faithful commenters and silent readers as well, and it's all really fabulous. I've gotten some tag awards, I did a survey and now I'm actually doing a blogathon (a year ago I would've been like what???) and it's all so much fun.
So now I'll take the time to say it: thanks so much for following me, it really does mean a lot to me that you actually take interest in my blogs and enjoy my writing, it really does. It's incredible that you take time to leave me a comment with your opinion or encouragement, it just makes me happy that someone takes the time to do that. I love blogging, I know I'm not around as much as I used to be lately, but I do love it to bits and pieces and I especially love that you guys are there to listen to me. Yep.
Well, that's about it, I know this post was kind of short but I did want to mark this milestone on here. Here's to some more follows and many more years of blogging and all of that, okay? I'm going to be sticking around for a while, so I hope you will too.
