Hello, everyone! February is a short month but that’s not stopping me from producing content regularly for you. We’re in the lull before the storm, the storm being the TCM Classic Film Festival! I don’t want to say too much now, mostly because I’m not sure if I can or not, but I’ll definitely be attending the Fest this year in a possibly enlarged capacity. Again, a lot is up in the air right now, but as soon as I have hard information, you’ll be the first to know. I just can’t believe that I’ll be in the same space with Julie Andrews and Ann-Margret! If you’ll be attending the festival this year, be sure to say hi.
Of course, that’s not in February. You might have noticed that I’ve stuck to the Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule and that’ll probably be how we stay for the foreseeable future. Book reviews and Biopic Theater will be alternating Mondays and Fridays for now, too. You might also have noticed the site redesign. I know I said the layout would be the same, but I’m trying to make the site look more like a website and less like a blog. Hopefully, you’re enjoying the more professional layout.
If you aren’t following me on Facebook you might want to (Facebook.com/JourneysinClassicFilm) as I’ve noticed you Facebook fans love pictures! I’ve been posting photos and information from TCM and ClassicFlix regularly and the response has been great, so give it a peek.
On Facebook I asked about ways I could jazz up the site. I’ve contemplated doing something with video, whether reviews or not, but I haven’t quite settled on anything I like. I’ve also contemplated more series and article writing as Kristen Recasts the Classics seems to make you guys happy. If you think of any ideas, feel free to leave them in the comments section. I’m also always on the lookout for movie recommendations so if there’s a film, whether something on TCM or something coming to DVD/Blu, you’re interested in getting my take on, let me know!
It’s business as usual at JFC this month (the name change was vetoed by you readers, in case I didn’t mention it), and I couldn’t be happier! Talk to you all later!
