2014... And all is GINGERY!!!

...as our girl is eying a new project to create, it's time for the good folks at Gingerology to do likewise, and get some production work going... 2013 was a pretty good year, which saw the 'advent' of the Ginger FaceBook Community. MANY great things are shared over there, and I do encourage you if you haven't already to jump over there and join in the conversations. There are also LOTS of great pics showing up there as well, and I'm pretty sure most of the pics in this post have 'sourced' there. Such as this stunning one of a YOUNG Ginger:


...and one of a, well, NOT as young (but still VERY stunning) Ginger:
...and there's SOOOOOO many more, as well as 'running dialogue', polls, GingerFilm 'sync-viewing' events with real-time commentary... and MUCHO info regarding our girl. SO...the take-home here is... GET ON FACEBOOK!!!

----------

Now, on to other issues... FIRST...yes, Top Hat needs a Huey Treatment.... BADLY. I've gotten about a third of the way through the screen caps, and need to pick them back up soon.

HOWEVER, henceforth, it's gonna be pretty tough to get a 'Full Huey Treatment' out for each Ginger Review, since we are now in the 'MaximumGinger' region of her filmography. As a result, I am resuming the 'general reviews' in chronological order, and will work in a 'Huey Treatment' here and there... I LOVE doing them, but... they are time-consuming, y'all...  which holds up the 'general reviews', which shouldn't be the case.

----------

SECOND...I have a LOT of GingerPics, y'all...(...no, REALLY!!! :-P ) ...I am ultimately going to sort them out and place them in their appropriate GingrFilm blogs, BUT... I'm gonna need y'all's help on a few pics...as in what film did a particular pic come from...or if it even is CONNECTED to a film...for example, any ideas on this one (which is a FAVE of mine)? It looks 'Mag Doll'-ish, but....not sure...
 SO, this will pop up as a post every now and then, which allows YOU to be pro-active!

----------

THIRD... Rolling out NEW features on the blog... One BIG deal is that Hu and the Crew have purchased a new printer / scanner which is pretty bodacious... an extra-large scanning pane allows images larger than 11x17 to be scanned in, which helps out for quite a bit of Gingerbilia documentation...like SUCH...
SO, a new spot on the blog will document Hu's 'Gingertory' (i.e., inventory of Gingerbilia...) - and HEY! Another entry for the GingerSpeak page!

----------

FOURTH... More POSTS!!!! Even a few Gingery items two or three times a week will keep the blog fresh, informative, and hopefully entertaining for all. This may entail some correlation with FaceBook posts, from myself or from fellow Gingerologists, with their permission, of course... which leads me into the....

----------

FIFTH item... a call for guest Gingerology posters!!!
...well, no, not THOSE type of Gingerology Posters (although I'd part with QUITE a bit to have one of those puppies in the main entry lobby of Gingerology HQ...) ...but, if you have a Gingery-themed post idea which YOU would like to create, it would be MOST welcome here...just keep it clean (y'all are great with that) ...and of course any resources needed will hopefully be available for the post (pics, info, etc.). I'll post this over on FB as well... IF interested, just e-mail me, or PM me on FB, and we can work it out...
----------

And...well...that's all I can think of for now, other than the general 'upkeep' of the blog, including 'This Day in Gingerology' - which I am going to expand by searching more stuff, and also by noting (by link) posts from Gingerology past... that should be a hoot of sorts...

SO... a lot to say, but...now I just gotta get to work!!!! :-P  

and with all of that... thanks for y'all's support over the years (weird I can actually say that now... time flies, don't it?) ...and, as we sometimes say here...
...Keep It Gingery, y'all!!!

  1. Whew, I got tired just reading this post....you're going to be one busy fella! :) I can't believe all of the 'new' pictures everyone at Facebook is coming up with. Where in the world are they getting them?! The mind boggles, but I'm loving it!

  2. ...there seems to be a never-ending volume of GingerPics out there, which is somewhat daunting, but yet...PERFECT!!!

    It's gonna be a fun, but relatively challenging road ahead...but I'm ready to try it!!! And I'm SO glad to see you are back at 'em in the blogosphere, Gingerella!!! And if you have ANY interest of 'Guest Blogging' here, I would be VERY honored!!! :-)

    Hope all is well in North Gingerville, Betsy!!! Stay WARM... and KIG!!!
