Today is a very special day here at An Elegant Obsession. Exactly one year ago, this bored dame decided to share her love of classic films with everyone, and thus, this blog was born! I never knew that it would still be going strong today, or that it would become such an important part of my life. I feel like it’s my child :’)
At first, we started small. But my, we’ve gone far in just one year! We’ve made a name for ourselves amongst all the other classic movie blogs that have been doing this for ages. We’ve associated with many top websites (The Kitty Packard Pictorial, DearMrGable, and Carole and Co, for example) participated in a blogathon (and will be participating in two more!) contributed research (we sent out a plethora of Gable-related articles to Michelle Morgan, author and creator of an upcoming Gable biography and documentary), and have associated with The Hollywood Heritage Museum in promoting their upcoming events. Whew!
Of course, none of this would be possible without you, the curious reader and film lover. Thank you to the hundreds of thousands that have viewed my work! I appreciate it, truly. But most of all, what I really enjoy out of this blog is speaking to you guys. I’m eternally thankful for the wonderful people I have met and befriended through this blog. You’ve really kept me going, and whenever I felt like giving it up altogether, you guys always encouraged me <3 Thank you thank you thank you!
To celebrate, I’ve given the blog a new look! I’ve always felt it was a bit dark, so I decided to brighten things up a bit. The background is now a poster of Jean Harlow’s famous film “Platinum Blonde” (1931) and the header is once again the Hollywoodland sign, but this time it is lit up at night
I hope you like the new look, and will continue to read my blog! I love you, my wonderful readers!
