I think every year I say that it was a busy year around the website, but this year it really was!

This year marked the 75th anniversary of Gone with the Wind, and around here we celebrated with a GWTW item every Wednesday–

New Years Resolutions for the Site:

I was lousy at Movie of the Month this year. (hangs head in shame) I do re-watch the films I choose and re-read my research on them before I post about them so it does take a good amount of time. I vow to do better in 2015!

I have nearly 80 articles in a pile waiting to be typed for the site. Articles are going to be a big focus here this year!

Thanks everyone for your continued support as the site enters its sixth year!
