It’s July 8th and that means another year has passed since the creation of A Tolkienist’s Perspective!
I can’t believe how swiftly time has passed since typing my first post, which was achieve with much trepidation and doubts as to how it would be received. Continue reading “This blog is 5 years old!”
Well, it’s a very happy belated birthday to this blog!
8 July 2013 was as normal a day as any other, except I had this persistent thought. Continue reading “4 years of A Tolkienist’s Perspective!”
Blog Established: 8, July 2013
Unbelievable. Yesterday was year number 3 since the creation of this blog.
What an amazing 36 months it’s been. Posts come and go (perhaps not as often as they once did), but what made this whole blogging experience so amazing was your contribution as readers and followers.
A massive thanks for keeping up with my crazy posts, commenting, liking and sharing.
I’m always thinking of what to write about next; and whilst real-life duties take away from the time spent writing, I’m still looking forward to future posts.
Thank you once again for your loyalty and support!
New post coming soon …
(Now where’s that birthday cake?)
Reaching new heights…
Exactly two years and five months ago, on 8 July 2013, this blog published its first post. Back then, nothing could have convinced me I’d get past 10, let alone 1000 followers.
Well, technically I should say we’re “over 1000 followers” but I’ll let it stand at that. Continue reading “1000 Followers!”
We’ve all been in that frustrating situation when you are trying to convince friends and family to join you in a single sitting of your favourite films. Many adamantly refuse your requests; others give in after much persuasion; whilst some, very rarely, are on board after witnessing your passionate display for the film in question.

Two Years On . . .
On a particularly inspiring summer’s day in 2013, I decided I wanted to share with the world my passion for Tolkien.
I always wanted to discuss with other like-minded individuals the extraordinary qualities of his work and the beauties of the film adaptations.
Seeing how severely limited I was at finding people in my area who share the same interests, I timidly considered the online community.
After much brooding and thought, at 17:45pm on 8 July, I created a WordPress account, wrote my first post and A Tolkienist’s Perspective was born. Continue reading “A Tolkienist’s Perspective Celebrates 2 Years!”
It’s Christmas Eve and here at A Tolkienist’s Perspective, we would like to extended our best wishes!

It’s been exactly one year since I wrote my first post for this blog (‘The Journey Begins!’).
Back then I was uncertain how things would develop and I certainly couldn’t see myself still writing about Tolkien 12 months later.

First few words, first post, first blog.
The name is James and I’m a self-confessed Tolkienist (aka a J.R.R. Tolkien fan); or even a “Tolkienite”, “Tolkiendil” and even a “Ringer” (yes, I’m also a fan of the films) – scrutinizing every nut and bolt of this author’s magnificent range of literary works. I’m a young man in search of understanding my own perceptions towards the way I see and read the words on the page or the frames on a screen. In short, I’m hoping to introduce my thoughts and purposes for this blog as clearly as possible within a few short paragraphs …
