From the Front Row Turns 2
That's right, exactly two years ago today, on October 31st 2006, From the Front Row was born.
Of course it started off its days as Matt's Oscar Blog, with a much smaller focus and an even smaller readership. But over the last two years we have grown quite a bit. By the halfway point of 2008, we had already doubled our hit count from the entire calendar year of 2007. At this point, we've nearly tripled it. I'd say we're definitely heading in the right direction.
We've had visitors from every continent except Antarctica, drawing in tens of thousands of readers and thousands of regular readers (which begs the question, WHY DON'T YOU COMMENT MORE??).
But that's not the most important thing...the most important thing to me is that I keep the same standard and continue to grow. Already this year I have started getting press screenings, interviews with cast members, and in February I will officially join the Southeastern Association of Film Critics (and in the process get my own Rotten Tomatoes page!).
There are lots of great things happening here at From the Front Row, and I have big plans for its future. So stick around and join me for another exciting year, live from the front row.
