Happy 5th Birthday, Ghibli Blog!

Ghibli Blog 5th Birthday

Happy birthday!  The Ghibli Blog turns five years old today!  March 29, 2006 was my first post on this humble blog, and it's been a long and wild roller coaster ever since.  I am very thankful and humbled for your support and dedication.  The level of success I've achieved would never be possible without you.  This project has been a learning experience for us all, as we explore this unique slice of movie history and the visual arts.  The beautiful part is that we have only scratched the surface of all the possible topics to discuss and share, all the movies to watch, and all the comics to read.  Carly Simon was right - these are the good old days.  Cake for everyone!

And since I'm a child of the '70s, here's a classic Sesame Street tribute to the number 5.  I was probably five years old when I saw this:

Congratulations! For the past year, since I found it, your blog has been one of my favorite blogs. Always interesting and fun to visit here. I wouldn't know half the stuff about Ghibli and animation history in general if it wasn't for your efforts on the Ghibli Blog. Thanks for sharing your information and insights!

All the best,
Tuukka (Finland)
