celebrates 5 Years Online!
celebrates 5 Years Online!
Wow, 5 years! I can't believe it's been 5 years already! It seems just like yesterday, I was still new to blogger and learning how to add codes and contents. I never thought I'd be blogging this long, but it's all because of my love for this 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/Austen related topics as frequently as I've been able to for these wonderful 5 years. And you know what they say, time flies when you're having so much fun. Indeed, it had flown by so quickly. I must say, I have loved and enjoyed blogging here and keeping this blog updated as often as I could (or have the time to).
So, yeah, five years ago today (May 29th), I started this blog as just an archived for P&P movie news and articles...and now 5 years later, this blog 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 film projects' news and more) and Jane Austen related news/articles/movies (ie. Becoming Jane, The Jane Austen Book Club, Lost In Austen, Aisha, From Prada to Nada, A Modern Pride and Prejudice, etc.).
Here's one of my previous posts that relates to how I started this blog: Confessions of a P&P Blogger
Also, some of my interesting, recently posted, P&P movie related posts that you might enjoy viewing and reading (if you haven't already read them)...

Updated 6/13/12: Unfortunately, no one entered this (and the other two) DVD giveaways...I'm guessing everyone already owned their copies of these DVDs...and this giveaway has already expired...so ending all the giveaways, since no one here seemed interested in winning these DVDs. Oh, well...

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 love it the way it is) slightly and switched the side bars as well as changed the header banner (see a screen shot of the previous one below). I thought it's time for a slightly new look and what better way to do so than today, on it's 5th year anniversary (which I tend to change the layout, at least once a year, or so...). I've been working on this blog most of today, updating and fixing some contents/pages, as you can see there's a new cool tool bar just added today below the main page with cool app links (check it out!)...so this will be a work-in-progress...
Previous header banner...
For now...hope you like the new header banner and re-organized side bars. What do you think? Like it? Yay or Nay? Feel free to comment post your feedback here. Thanks.
