It was with the greatest thrill that the CMBA contacted me to inform me that they would be featuring my blog for their first CMBA profile for 2020. Needless to say, I was extremely excited, honoured and humbled by this incredible news!

As bloggers will tell you, being recognised is a great boost to the confidence and being acknowledged is an affirmation of one’s work.

My deepest and sincerest thanks go to the CMBA for the opportunity to be profiled!

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!
