Fellow classic movie blogger Ingrid Bergman Life and Films has has passed on the "Friendly Blogger Award" to me! Thanks you so much! Really means alot to this newbie to the classic movie blogosphere coming from a veteran blogger I admire. To be ranked with such superior bloggers as Alfred Hitchcock Geek, La Vie En Rose, and Classic Forever.

It will be hard to choose from so many excellent blogs I follow, but I have it narrowed down to recognizing the folowing bloggers with the "Friendly Blogger Award" who jump started @TCManiacs as one of my first followers. His posts often correspond with the TCM movie schedule as well.

Who is the mysterious TCManiac?

First, I'll tell you who I am not. I am not affiliated with TCM. I am not some superbot created by software developers. I am not being paid by TCM or anyone else to dedicate my time to tweeting. I am a real flesh and blood human being. I am a real maniac for TCM. I really do keep my TV tuned to TCM 24-7. I created the TCManiacs twitter as a result of my sincere passion for watching Turner Classic Movies.

How I got started?
Well, I've been a fan of TCM since its inception. As I lay flat on my back recovering from a disabling health crisis unable to do little more than watch TV and surf the internet, I found refuge watching TCM round the clock. I soon developed an obsessive habit of keeping a browser tab open for the TCM schedule and beating Robert Osbourne's introductions to finding out facts for upcoming movies. My entire day and night became defined by the TCM line-up. At the beginning of 2009 I decided to check out twitter and lucked up on some fellow TCM fans to friend. During the 31 days Oscar I decided to dedicate a twitter just to share my TCM obsession by tweeting about every movie every day of February. I was totally overwhelmed by the number of fellow TCM maniacs that became my following. Its been a WIN WIN in everyway for me. I have had the opportunity to share fun stuff with some incredible fellow classic movie lovers and bloggers. With so many followers I became committed to maintaining the twitter schedule and finding fun stuff for upcoming TCM movies.
