14th Blog Anniversary!

Today I'm thrilled to mark another anniversary here at Laura's Miscellaneous Musings.

It's hard to believe, but this blog started 14 years ago today!

Blogging continues to be one of the most rewarding things in my life. It's led to countless special experiences and getting to know many wonderful people. I don't ever take any of it for granted.

It's also a particular thrill when I learn that someone has enjoyed a film or book after reading about it here. I love helping others find "good stuff" to enjoy.

My most sincere thanks to all my readers for your continuing friendship and support.

Previous blog anniversaries: 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.

Thanks for all your hard work running this terrific blog! It's been a fountain of information to help guide my movie watching.

Laura, many thanks for your enthusiasm, reviews, and heads-up on the film scene. Was it a coincidence that you started the blog on Disneyland's birthday?

Walter, Caftan Woman, Michael, and Stefano,

Thank you so much for the lovely comments, they were a great way to start my day!

Walter and Michael, I'm delighted to hear that the links and information provided here are helpful, hearing that is one of my favorite things about writing this blog!

Stefano, the truth is that our oldest daughter was waiting for Harry Potter Book 6 on July 16th, 2005, and decided it would be the perfect time to help her mom set up a blog while she was watching out the window for the FedEx truck. :) I'm so grateful for her help getting me started blogging! You probably won't be surprised that my second post here on that very first day was about Disneyland's 50th birthday, which took place the next day on July 17th, 2005.

Caftan Woman, you put a tear in my eye -- you are a special lady, and that means a lot coming from you.

Best wishes,

Thanks to you all, Seth, Jane, Vienna, and Raquel! It occurs to me that thanks to this blog I've been able to meet and get to know three of you, isn't that something?! (Vienna, maybe one day we'll have that good fortune as well!) Thank you all so much for reading and for you kind words and especially your friendship.

Best wishes,

Congratulations! Your blog is a wonderful resource to learn about classic Hollywood films, as well as great perspective on newer films. I think I found you through an internet search for information on a particular film noir (can’t remember the exact film). I have returned regularly ever since. Thanks for covering the noir film festivals and films noir so well.

Doug, Thank you so much! That's wonderful to hear. Very glad you found me! Delighted to know you are finding so much useful info here and that you're a regular reader. Thank you for letting me know!

Best wishes,
