Hey Ann Fans – After the whirlwind that was Ann Dvorak Day, I have been taking a bit of time off from posting here to deal with some personal issues, both good and not so good. I am going to continue holding off for a bit longer, but hope to have another Biography Progress Report sometime during September.
Before I sign off for a while, I just want to give a heartfelt thanks to all my fellow Ann-D devotes who sent wonderful emails and posted comments here on Ann Dvorak Day. I had a great time tracking how many hits the site received on August 9th which ended up being over 3,500, way more than I usually get in a month! For the entire month, the site received a whopping 8,436 visitors. TCM recommended this site a couple of times through their Twitter account, and even referred to me as an Ann Dvorak expert. Very exciting indeed. By the end of the day, I know Ann attracted a whole new legion of fans interested in her work and I am sure Ann would be thrilled to know that so many people were buzzing about her on the same day. She definitely deserves it.
See you all in the very near future!
