Five Year Anniversary

Last week I realized that my five year anniversary for this blog was coming up. This year has definitely been my worst yet, with me basically just posting what I watch every month. This year so far I've only hosted one blogathon, co-hosted two (and on my Olivia one I never even added or read all the entries) and joined two that I actually wrote posts for. Sigh. One day I hope to get back up to standard again.

Accurate depiction of how I feel about my blog.

Until then, I decided to share a list of my favorite movie from each year, like I did for my first anniversary. A few have changed and I've seen some films from years I hadn't before. I hope you'll enjoy and thanks to the few of you who continue to comment on my very rare posts.

  3. Dear Phyllis,

    Congratulations on your five years anniversary! Our three year anniversary is coming up next week. I think you still have it as a writer. You just have to get started again, if that's what you want to do!

    I wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a Liebster Award: https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2019/10/08/the-liebster-award-from-paul-batters/. At the end of the article, I invited you to join our blogathon next weekend. I look forward to hearing your response!

    Yours Hopefully,

    Tiffany Brannan

  4. We all go through these cycles. Your blog and your readers aren't going anywhere. Plus, we all love lists!

    Mickey's Christmas Carol? My son has already started watching Mickey's Christmas Carol. He didn't even stop for Sleepy Hollow for Hallowe'en!
