HAPPY BIRTHDAY 2020!!! (AND THANK YOU READERS)
Another year older, another year wiser. Today (August 13th) is my birthday (Hooray!) and I wanted to share it with you….my fellow bloggers and readers.
Yes, I am 35 years old today and (yes…) I’m officially getting older, but I am still enjoying my life and happy of the life I’ve lived thus far. It’s also hard to believe that six years ago I took a leap of faith and signed up (on WordPress) for my first movie blog….Jason’s Movie Blog. I was always scared that no one would read my post / reviews and my passion to create a movie blog would diminish. However, that’s always been my biggest fears. Just like any artist or person who creates content, I always feared that know one would read my work and that my thoughts / viewpoints would never mean anything, especially since they are plenty of movie blogs out there on the internet. Thankfully, those fearful thoughts have been held back (or at least kept at bay) as my blog has flourished (over the years) and gets many hits each day from around the world.
But that wouldn’t mean anything if I don’t have readers, which is where you guys come in. From the bottom of heart, I just wanted to say thank you to all you guys out there. You guys read my work, like my posts, and offered your opinions on them in my comments section. I’ve grown on my social media (I do plan to expand on them and would like some help and advice on grown on their), so thanks to my followers on the various social media outlets as well as the WordPress community to my other fellow bloggers on here…..
Well….it goes without saying that 2020 (for many) isn’t exactly been the “greatest year”, with the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping across the globe and various other hardships that people have faced from the virus’s fallout. For me, I did take a month off from work back in April, but have resumed working again and working full time at my currently place of work (retail). I’ve been safe and taking all of the measures and precautions to keep myself and those I live with from falling illness, including resting my body more. Because of this…. I’ve slowed up spending time on working on movie reviews. I’m not saying that I’ve lost interest or gonna give up movie reviewing / blogging….by no means! I’m just making sure I’m getting plenty of rest before working at my job. I’ve been getting a lot of hours at my job and very fortunate that I am able to do so…giving the circumstances of people losing jobs and businesses closing up due to COVID-19. So, while I’m not churning out movie reviews as I used to, I’m still very much passionate about movies and will continue to produce reviews of movies for you guys to read. Currently….I’m working on my reviews for The Secret Garden, Greyhound, and Archive. So, those movie reviews will be out within the week.
I just renewed my plan with WordPress account. That means that Jason’s Movie Blog is up and running for another year!!! Again, thanks for following me and reading my work.
Sincerely…your fellow movie lover / blogger
