Just over 50 months ago today, my first blogging post came your way


Now officially about just under two months into my fourth year an entertainment blogger…


On Realweegiemidget Reviews, 298 blog posts and 345 blog pages later.



Where to start, well firstly hope y’all had a Happy holiday time with lovely days full of good food, films and TV.

Now flashback to just under four years and two months ago… I decided after much prompting from Darlin Husband to start a blog. My initial thoughts after that had been to write a film and TV review, genealogy or ex-pat related blog. So in time, I joined the entertainment blogging community since I’ve been a fan of the wee and big screen for as long as I can remember.

This also was after being inspired by those critics I enjoyed reading, watching and hearing as a kid and beyond. My peers – in this niche – are like an ongoing party with those who talk film, TV, hot actors (you know who you are and there are quite a few of you), actresses etc at all times of the day or night thanks to our different time zones.

Of course, I’d also like to thank those readers, writers and fellow bloggers, for your wonderful insightful comments and discussions. Thanks for reading and following this blog be it on Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest. I’m happy to announce that thanks to you guys my total views until my October blogging anniversary, exceeded those of last year with those stats below. I’m also slowly approaching 3000 followers…

Below are my stats until my blogging anniversary in October (in no particular order).



I’ve also met tons of lovely people from here, there and everywhere via Twitter, Facebook and beyond. I’d like to thank you all for your fabulous support and your wonderful comments, conversations, random likes and more.

I’m now taking a blogathon break for a wee while, as I’m starting a new course next week. I’ll still check into my social media sites to checking out, commenting, liking or retweeting some of those great blog posts, tags and comments from some fabulous blogging pals. And watching some more random film and TV…

So don’t forget to tune in folks …  for I’ll be back in plenty of time for a blogathon on all things the lovely James Garner in February…




as like Arnie Schwarzenegger in his films…

  1. Congratulations, Gill. I always enjoy your blog. Best of luck with the course, hope all goes fab with it. x

  2. Happy New Year Gill. Time sure flies, I got a notification the other day that I signed up with WordPress 8 years ago. You are one of my favourite people in the blogosphere, always kind, funny and supportive. Thanks for your posts here, the blogathons you’ve hosted and your comments over at my place. It always brightens my day when I hear from you. Here’s to the next four years!

    • Thanks Paul. same goes for you. Keep me posted if you need a guest post and happy to add any of yours too – DM me via my Contact page. Always adore your comments on those random films be it North Sea Hijack or The Wild Geese. Planning on watching One Fine Day!!!

    • Thanks for the offer. I’m leaning towards your When Harry Met Sally… review for a guest post, if that’s ok. Feel free to add one of mine if you think it would be suitable. I honestly don’t know how to write a proper review so I just ramble about the thoughts that come into my head.

    • I do that too Paul, love you to add When Harry Met Sally. As our mutual pal, Mike is adding a Michelle Pfeiffer one – will take a look at your Meg ones of the 80s kind. Can you message me a wee bio on you and your blog in your own words via my Contact Me page. I’ll keep you posted on which post I’ve selected.

  3. Congratulations Gill!! I love your blog and your eclectic taste in film, tv and pop culture!! Happy 2020s!!

  4. Congratulations on the milestone, Gill! It’s quite the accomplishment to stick with something like this when it is so easy for the ‘real world’ to get in the way. I’m glad you stuck it out so we could (virtually) meet when Andrew and I started ManiacsAndMonsters. You’re a great part of the blogging community.

  5. Congrats, Gill!! I think you are one of the most fantastic people in the blogging world and always look forward to your posts. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for year 5!

  6. We’re all glad you joined the party!

    Time flies, doesn’t it? It is rather scary to find that I am thinking about what to post three or four months down the line!

  7. Congrats on your four years and two months blogiversary! It’s been a fun ride with plenty of roads yet to travel.

Love your thoughts... but only if they are spoiler free!
