Blogoversary: Seven Years of Blogging Pride & Prejudice!


celebrates 7 Years Online!

On this day (May 29th, 2007), 7 years ago, I started this blog. Wow, 7 years! I can't believe it's been 7 years already! It seems just like yesterday, I was a virgin to blogger, lol..and was learning and figuring out how to add codes and contents to this blog. I never thought I'd be blogging about all things P&P, let alone this long, but it's all because of my on going love for this 2005 movie version of Pride & Prejudice and the amazing actors who portrayed my favorite P&P characters brilliantly on this 4th-time Oscar nominated film. I really enjoyed blogging here and posting all things P&P (though in recent years it's been mostly P&P actors and their TV & Film project news articles) and Austen related topics as frequently as I've been able to for all these 7 years. Well, you know what they say, time flies when you're having so much fun. Indeed, it had flown by so quickly as the 2005 movie will be celebrating its 10th anniversary next year! I must say, I have loved and enjoyed posting here and keeping this blog updated as often as I could (or have the time to...which seems to be a lot lately, lol).

So, yeah, seven years ago today (May 29th), I started this blog as just an archived for P&P movie news and articles...and now 7 years later, this blog is still here and has expanded to a much bigger and frequently updated blog with all things Pride & Prejudice (esp. the 2005 film and its actors/cast and their TV & film projectsnews and more) and Jane Austen related news/articles/movies (ie. Becoming JaneThe Jane Austen Book ClubLost In AustenAishaFrom Prada to Nada, A Modern Pride and Prejudice, AustenlandPride and Prejudice and Zombies, etc.).

Here's one of my previous posts that relates to how I started this blogConfessions of a P&P Blogger

Also, some of my favorite P&P movie related posts that you might enjoy viewing and reading (if you haven't already read them)...

P.S. New Layout:
 I changed the layout (as you may have noticed, not exactly the background and it's image, I kept it the same as I've always loved it the way it is) slightly and fixed the side bars as well as changed the header banner (see a screen shots of the previous ones below) with a new one I made quickly earlier today. I thought it's time for a slightly new look and what better way to do so than today, on it's 7th year anniversary (which I tend to change the header and layout, at least once a year, or so...). I've been working on this blog for the past few days, updating and fixing some links, contents/pages, as you can see there's a new extra page: Pride & Prejudice Movie Soundtrack (check it out!). I've also, updated the 5-part Transcript of Joe Wright's P&P DVD Commentary posts (I've spent a few days adding DVD screen captures from the movie to match JW's very insightful and informative commentary...at least most of them. Check out those old posts as well), and I've re-arranged the extra pages' links (just below the header banner).

This blog will be a work-in-progress (I may or may not fix/add more contents...we'll see!)...


Previous P&P Blog header banners (I was able to saved)...


For now...hope you like the new header banner and slightly re-organized side bars. What do you think? Like it? Yay or Nay? Feel free to comment post your feedback here. Thanks.

  1. Happy Anniversary! Thanks to Sharon Lathan, I found out in time to share in the celebration. So, here is to many future posts and updates as we pop the corks on the champagne, brush the confetti from our hair, and bounce the multi-colored balloons to the person closest to us. Best of wishes to you and yours.
