Hello, my pals and gals!
Welcome to a whole new Best of the Past!
One year is a long time, and I started thinking how one simple post which didn't even go up on this blog's real birthday was simply not enough a celebration. I never thought I'd have a blog for an entire year, with people actually reading, commenting and participating. For a frisky and impatient girl who leaves plenty unfinished, this is a huge victory.
Best of the Past got a makeover for its first birthday. I designed it myself. Isn't it pretty?
With the overall look, I wanted to channel an old-time movie premiere, hence the quotation marks on every title and the lights on the font. You can see a drastic change right on the top. The links on the top bar changed, as I have noticed a few recurring categories in my writing. Now, you can access my "About" page, like it used to be, my favorite actors, directors and actresses on the same page, the "Best" page, and next to it I give direct access to my poetry and my movie reviews. One observation: The "Best" page only has actresses for now, because when I was saving the final product, blogspot said an unknown error was occurring. What it was? Beats me. I also plan on rewriting my About Me page, but give this poor blogger some time: It's 3 a.m.
On the sidebar, you can also see some changes. I changed my introduction a bit, first correcting the age (it was still on 18, while I'm almost 19 and a half now), and adding a few things to my personal info. It's interesting. I hope.
|Lucy: A success story|
Her name is a tribute to Kay from "Stage Door"(1937), who killed herself, tired of struggling against the theatre. I'll try and include Kay somehow in some of my posts. We'll see how, but what I do know is that you can count on her presence. I'm not about to pull a Harry Cohn and abandon my own chorus girl, no sir.
Scroll below Kay a little further and you'll see the difference in the titles. I spent all night making them, and I hope you'll like them. Now, stop when you've hit "The Brown Derby: Social". That's my social networking information for y'all. My Tumblr, my Twitter and (drumroll please) our brand new Facebook page! So why don't you go ahead and like us over there. I'll wait. Did it? Awesome!
And for now, that's about it, my pals and gals. I hope I stick to this layout for a while now, because it sure was a lot of work to make. I hope you guys like it and I'll let you know when I rewrite the About Me!
P.S. Yes, brand new signature with Kay's pretty face on it. I just love my chorus girl, okay?
