My Ten Year Anniversary is Approaching…

I started writing about silent films on the internet in March of 2009. That means March of 2019 will be my ten-year anniversary, which is kind of mind-boggling. Well, I mean, not the fact that such a stretch of time equals ten years, just that I have been at this for so long!

I have a few ideas up my sleeve (giveaways and such) but I was wondering if you had any thoughts on a suitable celebration. This site started out as a place for me to deposit my silent film thoughts and took me to a place where I am producing my own silent film releases, which is absolutely staggering to me. What’s a suitable way to acknowledge that? I’m a bit stumped so I would appreciate feedback.

If you’re interested in my early stuff, here are my first five published reviews. They were published back when I was Galloping Tintypes but I decided I needed a less obscure name when I made the jump to a daily post format in 2013.

It has been quite a journey, I must say.

    Congratulations 10 years, that’s worth celebrating! What about a special screening of one of your favourite films at the Castro, San Francisco or a another cinema you like?

    Congratulations! I would love a series of top ten posts to celebrate your anniversary.

    Maybe write about the ten Silent films that you have loved discovering the most over this last decade. Maybe let us know ten facts discovered while researching Silent films that surprised or interested you.Maybe a post on ten Silent films to show to newbies.

    Maybe you could even do a post telling us about ten things that you love most about Ivan Mosjoukine. 😉

    Whatever you do, I for one will look forward to reading about it.
