Seven-Year Bloggiversary!

Seven years ago today, this blog came into being. It hardly seems possible, but as the old saying goes, time flies when you're having fun!

I was particularly reflecting today on the wonderful people this blog has brought into my life. Seven years ago, I couldn't have foreseen the friends I'd make and the experiences I'd have directly because of blogging. Just last night I had a lovely time enjoying dinner and then SOUTH PACIFIC (1958) with friends met through Laura's Miscellaneous Musings.

I'd list some of the terrific people I've gotten to know and the kindnesses they've shown me, except I'd hate to accidentally leave someone out! I hope you all know how very much you're each appreciated, whether you leave comments on the blog, chat with me via email or Twitter, share movies and books from your collections, send me links to interesting articles, meet me at a movie theater or Disneyland, or simply drop by to read Laura's Miscellaneous Musings.

I'm deeply grateful for the friendship and encouragement of each and every one of you!

Previous blog anniversaries: 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011.

Congratulations, Laura! Seven years blogging is quite an accomplishment.

(You do know 7 blog years is equal to 49 people years, don't you?)

It is a pleasure to read your blog on a daily basis. I learn a lot about the movies and have seen many good films thanks to your reviews. And it's always fun to talk about Disneyland/DCA :)

A wonderful achievement, Laura! I can't think of many other bloggers who have stayed such a long course.

A point I would like to make, however, is the blog's consistent high quality. I never miss reading your blog every day, and reading your insightful movie reviews and reminiscences, current events in your cultural life, and seeing your wonderful photos.

Happy seventh anniversary and long may you continue!

Congratulations on 7 awesome years- you deserve many more of the blog (or hologram-blog, or whatever form blogs may take in the future!). I think you know that you've always been my first daily check in online, and one of the favorite people I've ever met online or blogging. Thanks for being my friend and for sharing so much of your enthusiasm, insight and love of classic film, tv, Disney and more!

Congrats on your seven year anniversary!! That is great! I can't imagine not stopping by every day to get my news, read reviews, find out what's new at Disneyland, etc. And I look forward to the next time I can join you at the movies!

Congratulations on your 7th Blogaversary, Laura! You deserve all the kudos you can get, with all your great reviews and ballyhoo! You've saluted my blogposts and Blogathons many times, and I'm forever grateful! Keep up the wonderful work, Laura; here's to many more years of movie blogging to come!

Speaking of anniversaries, my husband Vinnie and I recently celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary! May all of us have happiness in all aspects of our lives! :-)

I appreciate the comments from each of you more than I can say. If I'm feeling low in the future, I'll simply revisit this post and read your comments and I know my spirits will lift immediately -- your kind words have me misty-eyed! It makes me so happy to know that something I love to do is enjoyed so much by others.

*Thank you*!!

Best wishes,
Laura

Congratulations, Laura! The writing and content is always fantastic, what amazes me is how you keep it that way and then deliver two, sometimes three posts in a day! Your talents along with the fact that I know there's always going to be something new, perhaps even breaking, keep me coming back. And you're a great Twitter pal as well!
