It’s officially been one year since I published my first ever blog post, so happy 1st birthday to FlixChatter!

To commemorate this milestone, last night I’ve finally submitted my LAMB’s membership. I know, I know, this is something I should’ve done many, many months ago! To those non-movie bloggers, no I’m not joining the Gwen Stefani’s fashion line which shares the same acronym. This LAMB stands for Large Association of Movie Blog, the premier movie blog directory – a one-stop shop for readers and bloggers alike. Check out the annual LAMMY Award for 2010 that recognize many of FlixChatter’s friends!
I don’t check the stats page very often, but last night I did and so far FC’s got nearly 113,000 hits! Wow, I’d never thought I’d reach 100k within a year so this is very humbling. Pardon me for this ‘acceptance speech’ of sort, but I do want to take the time to acknowledge those who’ve contributed to the life span of this blog. Becky & Mike, thanks for being loyal readers from day one, Vince C. for being such an indispensable classic flix guest blogger, Samantha for your phenomenal contribution on Mark Strong (hopefully the first of many) and others who’ve contributed their reviews, and all my blogger friends who’ve entertained me and learned so much from. Last but not least, thanks to all of you readers out there who take the time to visit and drop your comments. Bloggers LOVE comments, and I’m not shy to admit that hearing what y’all had to say really make my day!
Well, since I’m feeling kind of nostalgic today, I thought I’d invite you to check out some of my earlier posts (from the first three months) that you might’ve missed:
