Readers, as I write this, it is difficult for me to fathom that it was 5 years ago when I was sitting in that tiny internet cafe in Paris, creating the blog that would become such a source of joy for me in years to come. And what a 5 years it has been.
When I began Backlots in that March of 2011, I never could have guessed what would be accomplished in just a few years’ time. There would be interviews with some of the great classic film biographers, coverage of prestigious classic film festivals, fun blogathons, and even an interview with Joan Fontaine. I am deeply grateful for the opportunities I have been afforded due to Backlots, and especially appreciative of you, the readers, for keeping me going for 5 years strong.
The blog has changed in many ways since 2011, and due to my current Marion Davies work, the content and blogging schedule has changed with it. But one thing that has remained constant is that I continue to treasure my blogging on Backlots, and am immensely proud of all that it has and will continue to bring to the online classic film community.
So, readers, here’s to us. Happy 5 years on Backlots!
