Greg In Hollywood turns 8 today!

And they said it would never last.

Well, Greg In Hollywood has lasted eight years now and is still going strong!

It’s a crazy addiction really and I just can’t fight it – no use in even trying.

Hard to believe eight years have gone by since this site was quickly launched less than a week after I was downsized from the LA Daily News – just a day after covering the 2009 Academy Awards. I’m forever grateful to my friends Danny Sullivan, Lorna Harris, Kate Cohen and Val Cohen for helping me to get up and running during that crazy but exciting time.

Since then, this site has been a constant not just in my professional life but in my life. For all the love and energy I put into it, I get it in return in the form of really thoughtful emails that come out of nowhere and meeting longtime readers when I’m at an event or out and about.

People are so kind and so thoughtful. Well not everyone. One reader called me a ‘bald queen’ a few weeks ago for blocking him on Twitter because he insisted on always writing in ALL CAPS.

But he’s the exception.

So let me just say thank you for your loyalty, for checking the site every day and weighing in on the comments or on Facebook or Twitter.

Now we start year 9!

    Congrats, Greg on 8 years of Greg In Hollywood! I’ve been there from the beginning and before and have enjoyed every day of it, even though I don’t comment every single day. In fact Greg in Hollywood is consistently my #1 blog for LBGT happenings!

    Again, tanks for all the hard work you put into your site. I look forward to your tenth anniversary and beyond.

  5. Thanks for 8 years of the always entertaining blog. One of the few that I check out every day! [My ONLY gripe is that sometimes the pictures don't load or take a long, long time to do so.....but that's probably not your fault.]

    Congratulations on 8 years! I am so GLAD that I found this site! it is the first thing that I check in the morning… I love the morning man section the best. (Even though, you have not featured my suggestion openly gay CNN reporter Miguel Marquez). I especially love that your morning man section features a variety of men of color. Again, Congratulations on 8 years and here's to 8 more.

  7. Congratulations, Greg! I don’t watch much TV so your daily email is much anticipated so I can keep up to date on Hollywood, especially the Morning Men. Much success to you!

  8. Congratulations, Greg! I read Greg in Hollywood everyday and love it.

  9. Sorry this is a day late, but Happy 8th Anniversary, Greg! Thanks for all you do. We loves ya!

  10. Congratulation Greg, Keep on keepin on. Your column has been a rainbow of pleasure and fun for me and my

    bloggers in North Carolina and elsewhere. Wouldn’t miss a day of it. Many thanks!!!!
