I haven't posted anything aside from the November birthdays and I wanted to just let everyone know that I haven't been slacking off and that I am working on some stuff, but it is mostly research and trying to get everything squared away. I am currently working on entries about the Moore brothers: Owen, Matt, and Tom. That will hopefully be up soon. I will be going out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday, so sometime after that it will get posted.
After the Moore posts, I am gonna take a break from the actual blog so I can concentrate on doing research and getting everything I need for the podcast. I announced a few months ago that I wanted to turn my blog into a podcast and between my personal life and the blog, I haven't gotten far with that. So, instead of a blog entry after the brief hiatus there will be a podcast episode about the silent film stars who died before talkies took over. I am very excited about this and look forward to sharing that with everyone.
I am also needing to take a hiatus for personal reasons. I will be starting a new job in the next few weeks and have been falling apart with stress and anxiety. It isn't easy to move to a state across the country, by yourself, with no family. Add to the mix anxiety and a chronic heart condition and it is not a fun time, I'll tell ya that. It has been hard, but I am trying my best to stay focused on why I moved out to California and focus on my silent film projects, including this blog.
Below is a link for a GoFundMe page I have set up. This was stepping WAY out of my comfort zone because I don't like to air too much of my personal business in public or complain about my illness. But, it got to the point that I realized I needed to reach out for both my mental and physical health. Any help offered is appreciated and I have been overwhelmed by the support I have been given already, monetary and through kind words.
I want to be the best person I can be and I am working on it every day. I can't wait to bring you more blog entries, grave photos, and pretty soon...a silent film podcast! Being able to share this passion with so many others has been such a treat and I appreciate every single one of you that reads the blog.
See you soon!
