1) Jane Austen first followed by many of my favorites.
2) I rather look forward to the games. I also enjoy the film reviews. I have also perused the period films page numerous times as a reference point.
3) I can't think of one at this time
4) Perhaps some reviews of the western films and series you have listed on the blog period films page
5) Oh, for several years. Can't quite put a figure on it thought.
6) Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube
7) I truly do not know. But I do know I was very impressed upon first sight.
8) Just three? Haha. Anne of Green Gables/Road to Avonlea, nearly all classic westerns cause I can't name just one, Lark Rise, Rose Hill, Scarlet Pimpernell, Downton Abbey, oh okay I'll stop for now.
9) That's a tough one because I've nearly seen them all! I would like to see The Young Victoria.
10) All of them sound quite intriguing.

God Bless!
P.S. - Much of your blog inspired me when I renovated my blog www.hearthandhometv.com several months ago. Thanks for the inspiration!

So, do we answer them in the comment box? I'd love to!

When you think about Old-Fashioned Charm what specific period dramas come to mind?
Death Comes to Pemberly, because that's your header. Persuasion 1995, because you love it. 'The Paradise' also comes to mind, because I've read your review so much. So yeah, many different ones!

What are your favorite types of posts on Old-Fashioned Charm (i.e. games, film reviews, actors, personal updates, faith based, book reviews)?
I love anything Period Drama related, but personal updates are really lovely too! :-)

What type of posts are your least favorite?
I'm not quite as interested in book reviews.

What films, TV series or books would you like to see reviewed at Old-Fashioned Charm?
Have you seen 'the Book Thief'? I just saw it, and I'd love to read your opinions on it.

How long have you followed Old-Fashioned Charm?
Ever since I got a blog, which was two years ago. I visited it VERY often since three years ago, though, but first as an Anonymous commenter. :-)

What media type to you use for following Old-Fashioned Charm (i.e. Blogger, e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, YouTube)?
Blogger, Youtube, and Pinterest. I visit your Tumblr often, too, but cannot follow it as I am not on Tumblr.

How did you encounter Old-Fashioned Charm and what was your first thought on your first visit?
I found it through 'Elegance of Fashion' which I found through random Period Drama browsing, at the age of 13. I LOVED your blog immediately. You fascinated me, and the beautiful looks and posts made me very happy.

Name three of your favorite period dramas.
Pride and Prejudice 1995
Emma 2009
Downton Abbey

Name three period dramas that you haven't seen yet but plan on viewing.
Ohhh, I have millions!
A Royal Night Out
The Paradise
Road to Avonlea

Love them all!!! Especially the first four. Jane Austen Couples Tournament sounds especially darling. :-)

1) Pride & Prejudice, as well as Cranford come to mind. And Lark Rise To Candleford.
2) I love your movie reviews & also the glimpses into your personal life.
3) I don't take part in the quizzes much... but I still like to read them & see if I can get any off the top of my head....
4) Honestly, I think you've reviewed everything I can think of! I heard there is a new Anne of Green Gables movie coming out so that might be something to review in the future.
5) 2 years maybe? Longer? A good while anyways!
6) Just Blogger, right now. But I do go over & check out your Youtube as well.
7) I think through a friends blog. Maybe a blog link up? I don't remember!
8) Pride & Prejudice, North & South, and Cranford.
9) Well, the rest of the show Lark Rise To Candleford! Oh and Poldark. Can't think of a 3rd.
10) Maybe interviews with other lovers of old fashioned things? Not necessarily just bloggers, but those who use Instagram or Twitter of a FB page as well. However all the things you listed sound like fun~ couldn't pick just one!

The period I enjoy is probably 1860-1920. I like film and book reviews and faith based posts. I am not sure how I came to this blog but I like it a lot. I really enjoy Jane Austen things. I enjoy modesty and wholesome things. Maybe some pioneer type postings that are beautiful. Kelly T.

1) Death Comes to Pemberley... ;) Ummmm... ALL OF DEM. :P
2) Games! And film reviews. Book reviews are good too! An episode-by-episode review of series would be fascinating!
3) None come to mind at the moment!
4) Poirot! :) (Our family is going through that again right now, and today I got to recommend it to an old gentleman at the library! :)) Trying to think! I know there are some!

9) ARE THERE EVEN THAT MANY. :P War Horse, Titanic (with filter), The Help (with filter).
10) Young Heroines, yusss! Couples would be fun! Adaptations would be-- okay, m'dear Ladybird, all of those things look fun. Haha. The only thing I'll say is that if it was too long of a classic book, I might opt out, just because of time constraints.

4. More "classic Hollywood" films, perhaps?

6. Just Blogger

7. I came here via a blog called Austenitis, I think. I remember being very excited by all your screencaps and movie reviews.

8. "The Man from Snowy River," "Captain Newman, MD," and "The Sons of Katie Elder."

9. "North and South" with Patrick Stewart, "Sense & Sensibility" 2008, and "The Brothers Karamazov" with Yul Brynner.

10. Another Period Drama Challenge! I have been wondering if you might do another, because I enjoyed it so very much!

Since I found your blog I fell so very enchanted with it and I'd love that nothing would change ... maybe it seems strange to you but if you have to do some changes I do trust in you and your good taste ... actually, I cannot give you any kind of advice or suggestion, I love it so as it is, forgive me !!!
Have a most beautiful end of your week
