We are celebrating today here at MD HQ, as this July 13 marks the second anniversary of Movie Dearest!
Two years ago today, this humble blog was launched, and since then we have logged over 2,600 posts and welcomed over 560,000 visitors, not to mention our 4,200-plus friends over on our Official MySpace page. Additionally, this past year has not only seen the growth of MD, but also the birth of our "sister blog", The QuOD - The Queer Online Database, a "Who's Who of Who's Out".
Once again, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to my two fellow contributors/best pals, Chris Carpenter and Neil Cohen. As our very own "Men on Film", they have added greatly to MD with their film and stage reviews, as well as their awesome interviews with show biz greats (Marisa Tomei, Stacy Keach), GLBT superstars (Leslie Jordan, The Lady Bunny) and exciting newcomers (Little Ashes' Javier Beltrán).
And last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank all of our loyal MD readers who keep coming back for more. And we certainly have a lot more planned for the next year, including coverage of Outfest and Comic-Con and our annual countdown to Hollywood's biggest night, the Oscars (now super-sized)!
So here's to Movie Dearest: Year Three!
