My dream would be to post a video with Jonathan singing Happy Birthday, but that’s not going to happen, so the graphic will have to do.
It’s a year since I started this blog and to date I’ve published 157 posts about ‘our boy’ and his achievements. How time flies.
I want to say a big thank you to the thousands of you who have visited in the past 12 months. Also, I’d like to give a big thank you to the many Fantoines who have given their permission to use their fabulous photographs, videos and creative works of art. Their input to posts is invaluable. Thank you each and every one of you. There are too many to name individually (that’s my excuse because I have a dreadful memory and I may cause offence if I leave someone out).
Quite a few people have asked who is involved in writing the blog and I have had to admit it’s a ‘one-man-band’. Me.
My online pseudonym is Subrosa although I use JonathanFan to post here. Don’t ask me why I didn’t use Subrosa because I’ve no sensible answer! It’s not easy to remember so far back (ageing has its negatives), but I possibly thought JonathanFan was more appropriate to this particular blog.
It was my idea to have a source, outwith Facebook and Twitter, for anyone who wanted information about the fantastic tenor Jonathan Antoine. There was very little online about Jonathan a year ago and I thought it important to boost his online presence because, as most of you know, Facebook and Twitter are only a small percentage of the internet experience.
That was then. What a difference a year makes doesn’t it? Jonathan has come into his own and when anyone googles his name they see up-to-date images and articles about his ongoing achievements. Wonderful isn’t it?
Note: May I reiterate that this blog is not associated in any way whatsoever with Jonathan, his family, Sony (his record label) or his management. It is run by me for his worldwide fans and the opinions expressed are my own. The comments - always greatly appreciated - are yours.
