Blog Notes

I usually posts THEN & NOW or Vintage Articles on Tuesdays but for today, I'll make an exception.

First, blog views!

I don't know what's going on right now but the views of the blog have skyrocketed to levels never seen in the 13 years of its existence. The views reached between 9000 to 10,000 for 3 days! Prior to that, it had reached 8000 views a day. Nearly 50,000 views in one week!

I'm trying to find the source of this increase and I know one source though that doesn't explain all of it.

Anyway, for the thousands new visitors to the blog, welcome! I've been doing this since 2010 and I love it. And I really appreciate the views. I wish the engagement was better but we can't have everything.

I don't know if this is going to last but I'm enjoying it for the time being.

Second note: BY THE GODS! Magazine

I completed the first edition of BY THE GODS! magazine, after years of delays. It was completed last week and used an online service which prints magazines and publications on demand. It says it can take up to three weeks to get it delivered. Well, that's slow. Anyway, I should receive it before the end of August and after inspecting it and hopefully there won't be any corrections, it should be available for sale afterwards! I could show you the cover and all but I want to show the printed copy first for the reveal which should be at BY THE GODS! website.

I would like to let you know that I appreciate all your hard work and dedication. When I first stumbled upon this site, I was amazed at the amount of information and number of films that you have covered. Peplum is not my favorite genre, but I have grown to appreciate it through your passion and enthusiam. Thanks again for expanding my horizons.
