After nearly a year with the previous design, I thought it was time to freshen things up a bit around here. Especially with this new shoot of Chris I couldn’t help but be inspired.

The site itself should be more friendly on mobile and tablet devices, as I’ve tweaked my coding more since the last design so things should work more fluidly, notably the menu.

I’d love to hear what you guys think of the new design, so feel free to drop me a comment and let me know. 🙂

Today marks the seven year anniversary of the day I first opened the site, and I have to say, I am extremely proud. When I first opened the site I never had any idea of how long it would be around, how much I would enjoy working on it or how I would grow to admire and respect Chris as much as I do today.

It’s been a bit of a bumpy ride, but in the end it has been worth it. It has been very fun to get to know many new people and fellow fans, including the infamous Pine-Nuts, which still makes me smile knowing that our little group started here with my little site. And it would be nothing without Chris, but more importantly the fans and visitors.

So, I guess the only thing left to say is thank you. 🙂

In the past few months I’ve been struggling to keep the site as up-to-date as it should be, and in turn have fell behind adding many photos into the gallery. I’m finally getting around to catching up, so you will be seeing new photos in the gallery as well a couple new posts soon as I add more of what I’ve missed. This will include magazine scans, additional movie stills, captures and of course more photoshoots!

So head on over to the gallery or check us out on Twitter now for the newest additions. 🙂

After many months with the previous design, I felt it the site was deserving of a refresh of sorts, and so here it is, a brand-new theme. I hope you all like it and find it easy to browse. I have also changed the gallery theme to match as well. In addition to the new themes, I have given the site’s content a much needed revamp and plan to continue updating Chris’s biography section soon. In the meantime, feel free to drop me a comment or tweet and let me know what you think, and if you have any suggestions that you think will better the site and your visiting experience, please, let me know. I’d love to hear them! 🙂

It was exactly six years ago today that I opened what you know as The Chris Pine Network. Thinking back on it now I don’t think I had even the slightest inclination as to how bright Chris’s future truly was. I remember the excitement and glee I felt when he was cast in the very first Star Trek. And now, only a few weeks since the release of the second film in the rebooted Star Trek franchise and I am unequivocally sure I made the right choice the day I decided to create my own little corner of the internet. And here is something you may not know; what you know as The Chris Pine Network was originally named “Pining for Chris” in our first year of existence, which you can see on our very first site design above. Cute, right?

Now I realize that in this day and age, that just about anyone can create some sort of page in dedication to whomever they adore. However, it stands to reason that building a website from scratch and maintaining it for years is hardly an easy job. It takes patience, and knowledge; not something easily created by pressing a button or sharing a link. Now see, I’ve always held myself to a higher standard than most, and for that I suffer from a terrible case of perfectionism. It often plagues me but ultimately, it makes me better a version of myself. It makes me want the best, and has pushed me to do what I know I am capable of. Which is why when I think about this site, an unreal amount of pride bubbles up from within. I truly feel as though I have put my heart and soul into the site through the years, and my passion is the entire reason it exists in the first place. There is a quote I am rather fond of. One you might say is my life motto, and that is; “Do things with passion, or not at all.” – And frankly, it is often my go to when I wonder if something is worth my time. And as it stands, for the past six years running this site, and being a dedicated fan of Chris has been my passion, and I am proud to say is still going strong.
