....SIX Years of Gingerology!!!

...well, it's hard to believe I've been at this for six years... although it's kind of hard to remember life before Gingerology! Lots of great folks have passed thru the Halls of G-ology over that time, and of course many are still here today - and with the ever-growing GingerFaceBook Community, it's great to know that there are so many 'like-minded' folks out there when it comes to the 'beautiful science' of Miss Ginger Rogers!

As most of y'all know, this blog was formed primarily to 'search' other Ginger-themed blogs, and soon the goal was to hunt down GingerFilms... by hook or crook (as this was before WB Archives, among others, had released many of the GinerFilms available on DVD today...). Of course, my inspiration for making this blog 'ALL Ginger' was Beth Rose's great one, 'Finding Ginger'... and even tho she only did the blog for one year, her general love for all things Ginger rubbed off on me MOST thoroughly... alas, her blog has been 'dormant' for 5 years now, and I'm not sure how much longer a dormant blog is allowed to exist... so I suggest you go check it out... it's a neat trip for me to be reminded of how the World of Ginger opened up to me without mercy, and how other folks had that same feeling! Here's a comment I placed on there where my blog becomes...Gingerology!!! :
...Well, sorry to further go out on a limb, but just wanted folks to know that my blog (such as it is) is now entitled, "Gingerology"...trying to make it something worth checking out...please just drop by there if you feel so inclined, if just to critique... I need all the help I can get! I have listed the VKM movies I currently have, which is not NEAR what most of y'all have... I am in awe... but hopefully I can catch up one day...
Still think Beth's is the coolest blog EVER! Thanks, jwalke

...and that gets me to the point to where I have to make my yearly 're-commitment' speech to myself, in hopes of getting Gingerology in a 'frequent groove'... time is never kind, and looking back, I'm really not sure how I did what I did over the last 6 years or so... so I'll have to redouble my efforts... which reminds me... if there are any of y'all out there who would like to 'guest post' or whatever, PLEASE contact me - or just reply to this post... I would be MOST happy to turn the blog over to a guest host...

Well, hope y'all had a great Independence Day, and will continue to stay safe...and, Gingery, of course!  Thanks again to all who have supported this blog for the past six years, I hope it has been of interest, and even to educate people about Ginger Rogers!

KIG, y'all!!!
