I apologize that I haven’t updated for months. I didn’t want to be one of those people that abandoned their blog and then… I became one of those people. I think I overwhelmed myself by signing up for too many blogging events and suddenly, blogging became more of a chore than something that was fun. Well 2018 is here and I want to get back into blogging. I’ll admit that I am struggling with finding my voice and figuring out what I want my blog to be about, and while at the same time, try to create something different. There are a lot of Classic Film and Television blogs out there.
I decided that instead of trying to develop some sort of gimmick or shtick, I would just focus on what I like and what I enjoy about classic film and television. I do not want to focus on least favorite films, actors, etc. because that is not something that I enjoy reading about. Why focus on the negative?
I plan on starting a new feature on this blog entitled “Recently Watched…” where I will review a film that I just saw for the first time. This will hopefully be the result of one of my 2018 resolutions which is to watch a new film without any distractions, e.g. looking at stuff on the internet, playing games on my phone, etc. I find myself doing that almost absentmindedly. Another one of my 2018 resolutions involved reading more. I’m also signed up for the 2018 Reading Challenge on the Goodreads community. I am starting with a modest goal: 12 books, 1 book/month. Right now I am reading James M. Cain’s Mildred Pierce (1941), the novel that served as the source material for the 1945 classic film of the same name. I plan on starting another feature on this blog where I compare the novel with the film.
New Year, New Me!
