Four years of Word on the Streep!

Today is the fourth anniversary of my first post on Word on the Streep.  It's kind of funny going back to read my thoughts and style on that inaugural entry.  Some things feel very different, others the same.  For the first time I can thank my husband Joe for setting up this blog for me as a birthday present in 2011.  My exhilaration in following Meryl Streep's work has certainly been steadfast and no doubt heightened over the past four years, and this site provides the perfect outlet for my obsession thoughts.  She continues to thrill me with each new role and I very much look forward to new surprises.

To any and all readers:  THANK YOU.  I've noticed a bit of a surge in the last six months in viewership on this blog.  I'm not exactly sure why, but am thrilled regardless.  Comments, thoughts and questions continue to be a wonderful motivation to not only write posts, but to do it thoughtfully, fairly and hopefully with consistency and integrity.  I am grateful for and relish the opportunity.

  1. Congratulations from Alberta, Canada on 4 years of your wonderful site. It's only been in the last year that I discovered it but I've read every post and every comment since and check it daily. May the site continue for at least another 40 years, even though I'll be long gone by then - I don't intend to live to be 106! Mind you, if Meryl lives that long (I'm ahead of her by only 4 months), I'll attempt to keep going also. Once again, congratulations and keep up the wonderful work.

  4. As always Jeff, your blog has been a wonderful place for many of us to come and is the best on the web (in my opinion) for informed thoughts, updates and conjecture! Long may it and you continue!
