Hello and Happy Mothers’ Day Everyone!
I just thought I’d slap up a post on what to expect these coming days and weeks, and just some overall random thoughts
First of all, Kristen over at Journey in Classic Films is giving away a copy of Bernard F. Dick’s book Hollywood Madonna – Loretta Young. All you have to do is email her at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject Loretta Young Giveaway! You don’t need to give her your mailing address right away, just email her with your name and the right subject, and if you win you can give her your address then (U.S. and Canadians). Deadline is the 19th of May, so open up your email and give her a shout! Book is not only on Loretta Young’s life, but “also introduces the reader to the Golden Age of Hollywood from the 30-50s.”
Hey, it’s free – go for it! Besides, if this giveaway is successful, she promises more – Thank you Kristen!
Secondly, another big pleasant surprise for you all – next Sunday we’ll be releasing a major update to this site, including tons of new features, and a completely different and beautiful new layout.
We’ve been in this awkward stage ever since January where some things worked right, others didn’t – scheduled films sometimes work, missing parts, no articles or contests – you get the idea
Well, that’ll all change come Sunday morning – with college out of the way, expect many uploads, events, and articles!
And thirdly, we’ll be introducing a new weekly newsletter come Monday the 21st, keeping you all updated on this site, blogathon events around the classic blogosphere, youtube uploads, and just general classic whatnot! Members that are already registered will automatically receive it (unless you don’t want to, then be sure to let me know) that Monday and those of you who aren’t registered can opt in with this little form to be sure you get it!
And last, but far from least – many, many thanks to Audrey, Bailey, and Dan for their dedicated work on the back end all these months – you folks rock!
See all you folks around!
