A Special Thank You To The Classic Movie Bloggers Association

As I am sure all writers and bloggers know, writing is an extremely rewarding experience. The opportunity to express feeling and share ideas, is at the very core of our humanity, yet is often very difficult to do. In writing down our thoughts, we place ourselves out in the open, where we can receive praise, ridicule or indifference. It can be difficult when our writing is ignored but the thrill of someone responding seems to override any negativity – at least it does for me!

The classic film blogging community is one that is supportive and passionate about their love of classic cinema. I have been fortunate to connect with some amazing people and it’s a real buzz to share that love and passion for classic cinema with people from the other side of the globe.

Recently, I received what I feel is a great honour – admittance to the Classic Movie Bloggers Association (CMBA). To not only have the backing and support of peers but also join their illustrious company is a milestone for myself as a writer on classic film.

To the CMBA, a truly sincere and humble thank you for allowing me to join! It’s a great opportunity and I am looking forward to learning more and connecting with other classic film aficionados. Thank you to those members for their show of confidence.

Additionally, my congratulations to fellow new members:

Erin Graybill and Cinematic Scribblings
Carol Saint Martin and The Old Hollywood Garden
Gabriela Masson and Pale Writer
Erica D. and Poppity Talks Classic Film

It is an honour to be in your company!

Paul Batters teaches secondary school History in the Illawarra region and also lectures at the University Of Wollongong. In a previous life, he was involved in community radio and independent publications. Looking to a career in writing, Paul also has a passion for film history.

  1. Paul, congratulations and I’m so glad you finally joined. Was wondering why you didn’t before.

    I agree that writing is a rewarding experience. And while I’m at it, for everybody who reads our reviews, please leave a comment. It’s the only acknowledgment and compensation we get. 🙂

    1. Thanks Margot. I wanted to meet the requirements and have a fair amount of articles under my belt before requesting to join. And I couldn’t agree more regarding your point about leaving a comment and/or like – it does make a difference!
