Post for a Birthday: Sylvia Plath Info Blog is 9

Happy Blogday to me. Happy Blogday to me. Happy Bloday SylviaPlathInfo....Happy Blogday to me.

Today, 27 April 2016, the Sylvia Plath Info Blog turns 9. It is exactly 72 years younger than Warren Plath.

What a journey this has been. Thank you all for reading, commenting, referring to, etc. Every effort I make on this blog as you in mind so this is as much your blog as it is mine. The archive of all the posts is accessible on the right hand column of the screen. You can also search for words in the search box at the top left-hand corner. Have a look around. Have fun.

You can also visit my website for Sylvia Plath, A celebration, this is, which is the oldest continually updated website about Sylvia Plath on the internet. There you can read a biography, see photographs of significant Plath related places, book covers, read at bibliographies of publications, archive locations, and the like, and read about Plath's poetry and prose.

Self-promotion aside... Thank you all sincerely.

A look towards May. Right now I am planning a few blog posts for May that I hope you will really enjoy. This will be a series of posts on Plath and The Bradford, the newspaper for Wellesley Senior High School (though in Plath's time it was called Gamaliel Bradford Senior High). I recently got to work with the entire run of issues from Plath's time at the high school from 1947 to 1950 and it was really interesting. I hope you enjoy the forthcoming posts. Look for the first one on 1 May.

As a former writer and editor of The Bradford, I can't wait to read about you have to say concerning my fellow Wellesleyite, Sylvia Plath, and her high school writing career!

Hi Jess, Melanie, and Shaun,

Thank you all for your comments. Shaun, I hope the blog posts live up to your expectations!

Now everyone: Keep Plathing!

Hi y'all: There will be a delay in my Bradford posts. Look for it on 16 May. This will enabled the current post on a call for chapter proposals for a new book Sylvia Plath in Context to be edited by Tracy Brain to be front and center on the blog. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
