Happy blogoversary to me!
On Sept. 28, 2007, Gratuitous Violins was born when I pressed "publish" on my first blog post, a review of The 39 Steps. Here's what I wrote on my first anniversary, and all of that still holds true.
For everyone who's added me to their blogroll, left a comment, found me by Googling where Carrie Bradshaw went to college (I still don't know!) or searching for violin music (I don't have any!) or just stopped by to read what I wrote over the past two years, thank-you.
It's great to have a platform to write about issues that are important to me and it's incredibly rewarding to be part of the online theatre community that has been such a welcoming place and led to so many wonderful friendships.
Like actors thrilling at the first reaction they ever receive from an audience, writers can get bitten by the bug, too. It's been a long time since I had my first byline in The Northeastern News but even after all these years, it's still a thrill to know that people are reading something I've written.
