Blogoversary: Ten Years of Blogging Pride & Prejudice!

celebrates 10 Years Online!

On this day (May 29th, 2007), exactly a decade ago, I started this little P&P fan blog. Wow, 10 long years!!! I can't believe it's been 10 years already! It seems just like yesterday, I was a newbie to Blogger...and was learning and figuring out how to post, let alone, add codes and contents to this blog. I never thought I'd be blogging about all things P&P, not too mention 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've really enjoyed blogging here and posting all things P&P (though in recent years it's been mostly about 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 10 amazing 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 has already celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2015 and will be celebrating its 12th year anniversary (in September [UK] and November [US])! 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!) for years.

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

New Blog Theme Design/Layout: Since it's been 10 years, I decided to finally changed the old theme designed layout to a completely new one (as you may have noticed, I've just changed it tonight...and have been playing around with background colors, text/font colors, images, etc., As previously, I've kept the same layout and design in the last few years, as I've always loved it the way it is, and occasionally changed the header banner) slightly and fixed the side bars as well as changed the header banner (see a screen shots of the previous ones over the years below) with a new one I made above. I thought it's time for a brand new look and what better way to do so than today, on it's 10th year anniversary.

*This blog will be a work-in-progress (I may or may not fix/add more contents...we shall see!) throughout the rest of this month and upcoming month or so...Will keep you posted and updated. More to come!*

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

 


For now...hope you like the new Blog design/layout and header banner, as well as the slightly re-organized (hidden) side bars (to your left, click that bar = to view contents. It's still a WIP, so bear with me as It'll be re-arranged and re-organized soon). What do you think of the new look and changes to this blog? LIKE IT? YAY or NAY? Feel free to comment and post your feedback here. I'd love to know what you think. Please leave your comment below on this post. THANK YOU.
