TheScarletSp1der Celebrates a 1 Year Blog-o-versary!

One year ago today, TheScarletSp1der’s Movie Review Blog was born! As I transplanted 4 short movie reviews from my own personal facebook page over to this site for all to read, little did I realize what would transpire over the course of a year! A facebook fan page for the site, 92 movies reviewed, 322 posts published, over 17,000 views, thousands more words written, and many friends gained.

This post is dedicated to you all who dropped in to say hi over the past year: the readers, subscribers, supporters, contributors, and friends of the site…Many people and posts over the past year have made this site a joy and pleasure to maintain! I’d like to take a moment to mention below a few of the posts and people I have to mention and thank for all of the support over the past year.

(I cannot mention everyone, so do not be offended if you are not specifically mentioned or if I missed you. I appreciate you all. Without you, TheScarletSp1der’s “WEB” would have no meaning or purpose.)


Several regularly categorized posts make their way to the “Web” each week/month/quarter: “Movie News Monday,” “Time To Vote Tuesday,” “Trailer Time Thursday,” “The Weekend Wrap,” “From TheScarletSp1der’s Shelf To Yours,” and more! Each fun and enjoyable in their own regard. 

Here’s a look back at some of MY personal favorite posts over the past year (click the gold title to see the post!):



 What were some of YOUR favorite posts/polls/projects over the past year on TheScarletSp1der’s Movie Review Blog?

  • In addition, “Thank You” to Casey Messer at Hollywood Dailies for passing along her video interviews of First Fans for use on the site!
  • One FINAL “Thank You” goes out to my biggest fan of all…my Mother! Whom I love dearly!

Thank you to ALL of you (mentioned or not)! It’s been a very great year! And here’s to another fun-filled year full of “Movie reviews, news, and more from your friendly neighb…well, you know!” 🙂

Thanks for reading (for a whole year!) Happy Watching!

-A humble and thankful ScarletSp1der


  1. I remember a yr ago when you started your blog you we’re pounding the pavement with paper businesses cards. Now you have graduated to laminated ones. But the enthusiasm is still the same. Hand a card everyone you see and pray the go to the site. Lol. Hold your head up and keep up the hard work. Pay off is coming. Happy 1st birthday scarletsp1der.


  2. Yay!!! Happy blogaversarry T! Congrats on the great milestone and hope to see more from the Scarlet Sp1der! Your blog is so positive, informative and fun, I love reading your weekly series and well-written reviews… I also appreciate that you keep your language clean, I really can’t stand foul language, whether on paper or spoken.

    We’ve become such good friends in the past year and I’m so thankful for that. Sorry I get all mushy on ya but I really do appreciate our friendship! 😀 God’s blessings to you my friend and keep on bloggin’!


      • Well thanks 🙂

        Its just i can be quite…umm profane at times…although i do usually try to censor my language if i’m around people who i think would be offended by it.

        I think foul language is just another thing we happen to disagree on 😛


      • My intent is not to change who you are Julian or what you say. I personally do not use foul language, but when it comes to my page, but I also realize that not everyone likes to read 4-letter words either. (you’ll find the request to refrain from profanities in comments on the page “Who is TheScarletSp1der?” in the rt hand margin.) hence the reason most get edited. but I always love comments and encourage all to express their opinions and ideas in a manner that can be enjoyed by most! Keeping in mind my audiences and readers (some of which are family members!) 🙂


    • The comments and congrats are definitely welcome and appreciated. I plan to keep on bloggin with more big things to come! Thanks for the kind words. Through you I met several other great bloggers…Castor, Julian, Custard, Dan The Man, Novroz, and many more! Much thanks goes out to you too!!


  3. Oh I forgot to mention, sorry I didn’t get your ‘posts you might’ve missed’ widget thing done in time, but I should be able to do ’em tonight. Still on time for your blog-aversary I hope 🙂


  4. WoW!!!! 1 year…dang time flies when your having fun!!! Because of you SS I have avoided watching a bad movie in theaters and adding bad movies to my collection. Keep up the great work and continue saving us from BAD movies. Proud of you!!!!
