Nicole’s Magic officially celebrates 10 years online today! The site opened it’s doors to you on April 7th 2002, sporting a red Moulin Rouge themed layout (10 years later – nothing’s changed!) and has since grown into the large fanbase for Nicole that it is now.
It seems strange to say it’s been online for 10 years – it’s gone so quickly!! We’ve watched Nicole recover from her divorce, win an Oscar, get married again, have a baby…
“If you enter the dark side of life, and come through it, you emerge with more strength and passion.”
Nicole’s Magic started out because of my fascination with this woman who was thrown into the spotlight in 2001. After watching Moulin Rouge on the big screen, seeing photos of Nic and reading about her, she stuck with me, and there was just something about her that appealed to me. At the time, I was a big fan of my friend April’s Reese Withespoon fansite (which, incidently, I now run myself) – it seemed so fun to run a website like that – so I decided I’d try and put together a website myself, as a means of learning more about this Nicole Kidman. The rest, as they say, is history. The site had a great reaction from fans and I loved finding and creating new things to post on the website to share with other fans.
As my interest in Nic grew, and I was building this site up, I watched more and more of her movies, and that made me fall madly in love with all her work. She has such a variety of films in her filmography, and such incredible screen presence, it was exciting to
slowly well, quickly, actually, work my way through it all. Watching that variety of work opened me up to new genres, actors and directors, and definitely developed my love of film. And then of course there is Nicole’s personality and her amazing strength of character, which is inspiring, to put it simply. I’m glad I took the chance to open this site, it’s been great for so many reasons.
Running this site has been such a great way to get to learn more about Nic, follow her career, promote her work, and share my love for her with you, her fellow fans!
An anniversary would not be complete without a few thank-you’s, and there’s lots of people who deserve credit for their help with Nicole’s Magic.
