Thanks Again!

As of today, I've been blogging for 2 years. I'd say that's about 21 months more than how long I thought I'd be able to blog, when I first started blogging. But its lasted 2 years. And that's definitely due to you readers. I do love movies and I do love to write. But without the comments and the increasing number of hits, its doubtful if I would've had the interest or the energy to keep blogging for 2 whole years. So thank you all, for continuing to come back and for the enthusiastic comments, interesting discussions, entertaining arguments and fun trivia.

On to year 3...

Seems like it was only yesterday that I came looking for bbreviews and found the blog. Two years have passed(tears):-) How time does fly.

Best wishes for an interesting 3rd year with, hopefully, an interesting replacement for Jo:-)

Ya, definitely, the best reviews on the net for Tamil movies. Most indepth. Been checking bbreviews much before the blog, but come the blog, haven't been into bbreviews much. I used to love going over the monthly classics. Always wanted poove poochudava to figure in there. I think, after Jeevi reviews in http://www.idlebrain.com (the most famous telugu cinema website online), bb gives the most indepth review.

Congrats, bb! It's been an interesting and entertaining 2 years!

First year, there was a post everyday. Second year, it became one post every 2 days... I hope this pattern doesn't continue into the 3rd year!! ;)

Congrats BB!!!!
Keep it going!!!

Balaji-

Congrats and happy running in year 3! Your blog is one of the damn good ones for movie reviews and has pretty much become the
"opinion" to go and watch a movie or not.

Hey..Happy two years!
We readers sure have fun checking your blogs every morn and actively discussing (and sometimes vehemently arguing) with fellow bb-bloggers :)
Merci beaucoup...

Not a single day goes without myself checking your blog, sometimes doing the routine 4-5 times a day :) Apart from the awesome content that goes into every post of yours, the thing I admire about your blog is the way you moderate all types of comments, particularly the way you respond to those who don't necessarily agree with you and those who comment on a sarcastic tone.

Like Ram said, lets all strive to keep the comments section a very clean and enjoyable one (with Ram around, the latter has already been taken care of) bcos I am sure many of us come here to read the comments as much as the posts:)

Balaji, Congrats on completing 2 successful years of blogging! Thanks to mitr for introducing me to ur blog. To reiterate what other readers have said, you have some great reviews and its been an absolute pleasure reading your blog!

Keep up the good work!

BB,

Very good job indeed, but one down side is I'm addicted to ur blog just like a cigarette :-P

Balaji,
Congratulations !! You write very well, and we all enjoy reading your posts.
Now that the world cup is on, how about your thots on that. Dish Network's channel 471 & 473 has the warm up matches with very unimpressive commentary. I remember watching a few 2003 world cup matches in India and it was so much better. But that...is just my thot. thot ? is that newspeak ?

we should be the one saying the "thank you"!

Hi Balaji,

Congrats on completing 2 years. More then anything else you brought a refreshing view to a movie than other websites without spoilers.

Something that I have noticed recently because I read both sites. See to much of similarity in review comments between yourself and Rangan for movies he has reviewed before you. Similarity not in words but in thought process.

BB..i have been reading ur reviews since 1999. there were so many review sites back then, but ur the one that is still going strong while the rest has collapsed.

 
At 7:34 PM, Blogger Nisha said...

Congratulations are in order, i believe. :) Like some of the others here, I was reading your reviews, long before you created a blog. So now, i have two good things to look forward to. I'd love to see you continue. :)

robin, not sure i've seen u on here b4. so welcome and thanx :)

sirnapper, thanx :)

me too, i think the pattern will continue. busier @ work now and packed weekends. so i think i'll average about 3 posts a week. but i think those posts will be longer :)

kk/mitr, thanx :)

shwetha, Merci beaucoup to u too :)

filbert, thanx :) disagreements r fine and even welcome since they force me to think about what i wrote and maybe expand on my thots more. its the vulgar comments and personal attacks that r tougher to handle :)

priya/srivatsan, thanx :)

drsharavanan, thanx :) yes, i will be following the world cup keenly. but there r many other bloggers way more knowledgeable about cricket, writing about it. so i think i'll stick to what i know best :)

sundar, then i guess i'll say u're welcome :)

karthik, thanx :)

KP, thanx :) on the similarity, thats not surprising. pick any review site and u'll find similarity in thots in atleast some movies. wrt rangan, we think alike about some movies(PKMC) and disagree on others(veyyil, mozhi - the 2nd one is based on his comments about it since he didnt write a full-fledged review) :)

skanda/nisha/kavitha, thanx :)

gayatri, thanx :) lol on god's work :)

SKN, yeah yeah i know :( should have 1 tonite...

anu, thanx :)

I got addicted to your reviews in 2000. When I first came across your geocities webpage you had like 90 reviews online.

At that time you had categories such as rewind, movie of the month and so on.

wish you could go back to that style.

Late to the party- but just wanted to add my wishes. BBthots is an integral part of my daily morning surfing routine :) Thanks and keep up the good work!
