Films in 2012: December

New to me in December: 39

Re-watches in December: 20

Total for the month: 59 (Approx 1.9 films per day)

I believe this has been my highest month of re-watches in 2012. This comes as no surprise, because I always watch the same holiday films every year!

I always consider a month successful in viewing if I watch more “new to me” than repeats, so every month of the year has been a success.

Announcements, etc:

-TMP’s one year birthday is January 18 and I do have something very special planned. Stay tuned ;)

-This has been an exciting month for TMP, because the blog was accepted to WordAds and the Amazon Associates program. I know advertising on blogs can be a bit of a polarizing issue but I hope you all won’t be bothered too much by the few ads you’ll see here, and the Amazon links are to everyone’s benefit because they’ll give you easy access to the films I review. I lost my job in August and have yet to find another steady job, and I’m trying to save up for grad school… so this is just a way for me to hopefully bring in a teeny bit of extra money to go toward that.

-I hope you all have a wonderful New Year and have had a joyful holiday season!
