Happy  Birthday to US!  Happy Birthday to US! Today, the blog celebrates  4 years of operation!

It’s hard to believe that it has already been four years since I first  opened this blog.When I first  started this site four years ago I was unsure of what it would become and   would not have believed  that I would be running it four years later. This site means so much to me and I have genuinely enjoyed running it and keeping readers informed about relevant subject matter. It has been a truly rewarding  experience and  provided enriching opportunities, which I never would have thought I would have. I am proud that this blog has been providing prominent coverage for thousands of readers each month on various television series which are of interest. Special thanks are extended to YOU the reader for supporting the blog through your continuous visits, comments and ongoing involvement in other interactive opportunities on the site. Without readers a site has no purpose or future. Your visits truly mean everything!

The last year has been the biggest and most successful year for this site. We welcomed nearly 44 000 visitors which is approximately  4 times the number of visits the site had in its initial year.  We continue to interact with readers through active monitoring of the blog`s Facebook and Twitter page . We pursued   affiliation with both CBC and Westwind pictures that supported the blog by endorsing its coverage of Little Mosque on the Prairie. The blog also further  expanded its diverse network this past year by having partnered with various cross cultural  blogs which have expressed interest in Little Mosque on the Prairie such as Marilyn Gardner`s Communicating  Across Boundaries and Knightley Emma. We were also recognized by the Canada Media  Fund  for  the site`s ongoing coverage of Little Mosque on the Prairie.  The blog connected with Gateworld .net , which is known as the leading online website for Stargate  where many of our interviews with cast members from the franchise were linked from. Thank you to  all of our affiliates for your support of the blog. I have  greatly enjoyed working with each of  your respective  organizations and/ or sites and hope that we  will continue to support one another in this coming year.

We continued our retrospective coverage of  the Stargate franchise after  it drew to an end after 17 years with SGU  through news reporting and interviews with SGU’S Jennifer Spence, Peter Kelamis and   brilliant main cast member , Brian J Smith. We also had the delight of interviewing  Stargate Atlantis, Rachel Luttrel! Thank you to each of  you for  kindly participating in the interviews. I tremendously enjoyed the rewarding experience and I trust each of you benefitted from it as well.

The past year has been a significant year for the blog’s coverage of Little Mosque on the Prairie as the show progressed in its sixth and final year.   In addition on going news coverage and weekly episode features, I   once again interviewed Little Mosque’s  Manoj Sood,   Debra McGrath,   Brandon  Firla  , Arlene Duncan and Aliza Vellani to  extensively discuss  roles within the show’s sixth and final  season. We also interviewed, for the first time, Little Mosque’s Derek McGrath to discuss  the impact  which the departure of his character had on the show as well as the fan favourite , Zaib Shaikh who provided an insightful overview of the show’s sixth and final season as well as  how the program represents  Canada.  Thank to you all of the cast members for your exceptional portrayals and for participating in the interviews. I sincerely hope you enjoyed the experience as much as I did and extend best wishes in the future of your acting careers. It has truly been truly an honour and my pleasure to work with each of you .

Indeed, this is the only online media outlet which has interviewed the entire cast of this ground-breaking series.The blog was  recognized  by other institutions of the media for its extensive coverage of Little Mosque on the various occasions for its extensive coverage of this ground-breaking series including   Aquila Asia, a cosmopolitan magazine which did a  complete overview on the series to introduce it to its south Asian  readership. The blog was also mentioned on a live streaming with the cast of Little Mosque on CBC Live where the entire cast of the show thanked  us for its extensive support as well as responding to additional questions which we had about the show’s end.  I also had a chance to appear on CBC`S The National in order to discuss the show’s impact

From February to April the blog hosted a few live chats with various cast members of Little Mosque on the Prairie  including Aliza Vellani, Manoj Sood and Debra McGrath as a way of providing  viewers with the chance to directly  interact with  the stars themselves. Thank you to these prominent Canadian talent and all of the readers who joined in the discussion!

We also covered various other series on the blog. Back in September we launched coverage of FOX`S  new science fiction series,Terra Nova through weekly episode previews as well as through our  interactive features. Although  this show was not renewed for a second season, I greatly enjoyed discovering the series.

The blog launched its coverage of The Office and Web Therapy back in September and January respectively .As a result we have begun to welcome a new audience to the readership  through ongoing news coverage .Interviews  with various cast members of both series may be scheduled within the upcoming period.

I would also like to take  a moment to extend thanks to Youtube group, supportfire115@http://www.youtube.com/user/supportfire115 for kindly providing the decorations used for this celebratory post. Thank you for helping make this special  day even more memorable through your assistance in this regard.Thanks also goes to the blog’s occassional communications auditor , Nisreen O’Neill.

What plans do we  have for year number 5? With Little Mosque and Stargate having ended, we look forward to occasional  ongoing respective coverage of these significant and  defining series for this blog.  The blog will continue to cover  The Office  as we approve its impending ninth season and provide extensive , ongoing coverage of Showtime’s Web therapy through ongoing news, weekly episode guides as well as  interviews with various cast members of this unique  comedy. The blog will also be launching coverage of  CBC`S, Mr. D as the show approaches its second season.  Expect other science fiction series to be covered as well. The blog may launch a music aspect  by  covering  works of  prominent North American  musicians. Further details will follow  next month once precise  plans have been finalized.

Although our previously announced plans to launch a held hosted site have been terminated at this time, we are  in the process of  assessing  various other templates  within WordPress.com. Readers can therefore look forward to a new  design .

What  would you like to see on the site for our  upcoming year. Share your thoughts in the comments section or by e-mail. Thank  you for being apart of the community and I  look forward to another exciting year with the readership where we continue to work together to make the site the best it can be.

Happy Birthday  to US!Today, this blog  officially turns 3 years old!

It was three years  ago today, when I decided to open this blog.It is hard to believe that  three years have  gone by. When I first opened this site, I had no idea as to what it would become or that I would be doing it three years later. This site means so much to me  and running it  has been a truly rewarding and enriching opportunities, which I never thought I would have. I would have never  imagined that I would have been providing prominent coverage for thousands of readers each month, on a variety of different subject matter!  Thank  YOU  for supporting  us throughout the past year with your  visit and active participation. Indeed, a site has no purpose or future without its valued readers. Your visits mean everything!

Over the past year, the blog  has grown immensely, having gained an increased  recognition throughout the media. We welcomed over 60  000 readers in the past year which  is  nearly ten times the number of visits which the site earned in its first year of operation. We  enhanced our reader –management communication by launching our  new Facebook and Twitter  pages.   Readers can follow the pages to remain up to date on the latest coverage and announcements regarding the blog.  We  have also welcomed a great deal of new, wonderful regular  readers  and have had an increase in discussion throughout the site.

Over the past year, we continued to provide coverage on LOST as the show concluded its sixth and final season,  provided extensive news and media coverage  on the second and final season  of Stargate Universe as well as the fifth season of Little Mosque on the Prairie. We also continued to place   strong emphasis on our coverage of the  pending Stargate films , Stargate Revolution and Stargate Extinction,  which were paced on hold by MGM, until having recently been cancelled. With Stargate Universe having been cancelled and  the possible  developments on  a follow up movie, we launched our SGU Cancellation page to cover such information.

Last June, we  partnered with apple gaming company,  Playsteria to promote its new LOST App GAME, Unlockies . The blog also partnered  with the Stargate Movies Campaign and the SGU Awareness Campaign over the past year to help support the production of the Stargate  films and support the continuation of Stargate Universe!Though we were unsuccesful, we are glad to have supported the initiative and look forward to celebrating the Stargate franchise.

Back in November, the blog was asked by senior producer of Canada AM, Tina Daenzer to help promote the  Canada AM Live event which featured the  SGU  cast in Toronto. As a result of our extensive support of the event, the cast were invited to visit the blog.We   also attended Space’s  SGU Live Event, where we had the rewarding  experienceof  meeeting  the cast  of SGU and provided full coverage on the event!

In December, the blog was sanctioned by the producers of Little Mosque on the Prairie, allowing us to interview the show’s cast. Since then we have interviewed Little Mosque ‘s  Sitara Hewitt, Manoj Sood, Aliza Vellani, Arlene Duncan, Debra McGrath, Neil Crone , Brandon Firla and Sheila McCarthy. We thank each of these cast members for participating  in interviews with us and truly hope they enjoyed the experience as much as we did!

We also  interviewed various SGU  cast members including the show’s Julia Benson and  Patrick  Gilmore. Both of these talented `professionals  provided us with valuable reflections on their time on SGU, their  thoughts on the end of The franchise and its future! Both are thanked for their participation and we extend best wishes for the future.

What plans do we have for year#4?With  Stargate Universe   having  concluded its two year run Stargate franchise having drawn  to a close, we look forward to   providing coverage on  the aftermath of SGU ,  providing tributes,    reflecting  on 17 years of Stargate  through active coverage and discussion ,   and  have already  set interviews   from actors of the Stargate franchise. We  remain committed to our coverage of Stargate  and look forward to keeping the franchise a vital part of the site, while we move  forward in our coverage.

With Little Mosque on the Prairie approaching its  sixth and final season , we will be providing extensive news , media coverage as well a intervuewing the rest of the cast and  various writers from the show.

We also intend on launching coverage on various  new series to  ensure the blog remains current. Readers can expect to   see  coverage on various comedies, such  NBC’s , The Office and The Outsourced. We are also in the   process of  exploring  various new  science fiction series and  may cover certain shows from the genre as well.

We also look forward to increasing  our number of posts, reintroducing our monthly newsletters to enhance reader –management communication and engage  in our continous efforts to increase discussion throughout the blog.

Though our previous plans from last year,  to launch a new self hosted site have been delayed,we are still committed   idea and plan on having  the  site launched later in the summer.  Details regarding the movement will be provided shortly .At our new website we will continue providing  coverage of our current subject matter and have great opportunities  to  expand our variety  and make use of a  wide range   of technological applications.
