Happy 2nd Birthday to The Green Room Blog!

February 9, 2013


It’s a big day here at The Green Room Blog, and one I wasn’t sure I’d see when we first began — our second birthday!

On February 9, 2011, I launched this blog with only myself and 3 intrepid friends who bravely said “yes” to blogging about their paths in this crazy business. We only posted a couple of times a week, and our readers were mostly our supportive friends and family.

Today, the blog hosts eighteen of us (wowza!) spread across the world, and I have befriended dozens of you in real-life who I may never have had the good fortune to meet without the help of this online space. I’m proud to count many of the bloggers here as my good friends. Together, we launched a monthly twitter chat called #ShowbizChat that continues to expand each time we “get together” to chat — last month we even made the twitter trending list! And little elves are working right now to bring the newest addition to Green Room — the Actors’ Deputy, a place to chat about working conditions and contracts at regional theaters.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for making this blog what it is. Yes, YOU! What I set out to create was a community of positive and supportive entertainment professionals, and I couldn’t have imagined how successful we’d all be together.

We’ll accept birthday gifts in the form of: cupcakes (delivered to me, of course…) and sharing of the Green Room Blog with your friends (please do!).

And we ask: what has been your favorite or most useful Green Room Blog post over the past two years? Give a shout-out to a blogger who’s helped you out!

    I have learned so much from all of you about endurance and just how vast and multifaceted this industry is. Yay for you, and yay for us!
