A Change is Coming

On January 31, 2020, ElvisBlog will celebrate its 15th anniversary.

First ElvisBlog post


During that time I have done 891 posts. Last January I made a commitment to keep going until I hit the 1,000 mark. I am still determined to meet that challenge.


However, it will be reached in a different way. After January 31, ElvisBlog.net will become a static site. No new articles will be posted.


Instead, I will be sending new posts out by email. There are currently 449 “Subscribers” who get a new ElvisBlog post delivered to their email inbox every weekend, sent by my blog platform . This is the way it comes in:


Well, I have figured out how I can do it myself. The formatting, the bulk mailing, everything. The appearance of my email blog will look very similar to what’s coming in now. You will be able to read it right there in your inbox or open it up as a web page.


As you know, I have attempted to generate a little income by selling my book and some of the Elvis goodies in my collection. I’ve made barely enough money to cover the expenses involved with keeping the blog going. So, I’m going to try something different.

I’m going to ask you to pay $10 to continue enjoying ElvisBlog for the next 100+ posts until I hit the 1,000 mark. That’s 10¢ a week.



Starting in early January, I will send out PayPal payment requests for $10 to all the ElvisBlog subscribers.

If you have a PayPal account and want to continue getting ElvisBlog, just approve the billing.

If you don’t have PayPal, just send me a check. The mailing address for alternate payment will be noted on the invoice.

If you don’t wish to be a paid subscriber, cancel the payment request. I will be sorry to see you go, but that’s your call.


For those of you who haven’t previously signed up as subscribers but would like to continue getting ElvisBlog by email, the first step is to put your email address the box in the top right of this page and click on subscribe.


I assume some of you will have comments or questions about this change. So, please send them in on Comments. I’ll be happy to see what you have to say.


Thank you for your support.

    Hi Phil,

    Are you going to keep this website available to your subscribers?

    • Hi Deanna: Yes, assuming enough people want to receive ElvisBlog in their email. So far, the response has been pretty slow. The best way for you to be on the new subscriber list is to send a check for $10 to Phil Arnold, 159 Browning Dr, Greer, SC 29650.

      Thanks, Phil

    Phil – I definitely want to keep getting the Elvis blogs, but don’t know how to pay for it. I didn’t get an invoice in my Email & don’t have your address to send a check. I’m freaking out, thinking I’ll miss out on your GREAT blogs. What should I do? HAPPY 85th, Elvis!! WE STILL LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!

    • Hi Stephanie: Thank you for nice words about ElvisBlog.

      To continue getting it, please send your check for $10 to:
      Phil Arnold
      159 Browning Dr.
      Greer, SC 29650

      I appreciate your extra effort to be part of the new group of subscribers going forward.

  5. Phil I just posted this on my blog and wanted you to read my sentiments. Here is the direct link:

    Respect always to Phil Arnold @ ElvisBlog.net

    I am fortunate to call Phil Arnold a friend. A man I admire. A man I respect. An essential asset to Elvis Presley fans around the world.

    Recently he posted on his blog that his site, with I HIGHLY RECOMMEND, will be changing in the immediate future. I am saddened to learn of this as I have enjoyed his site for as long as he has had it.

    I wish Phil; great happiness, joy, satisfaction knowing he has been an invaluable guide for Elvis Presley fans worldwide, and success in all of his personal and professional endeavors.

    Here is his links:

    Take care and may God bless you and yours…always.

    • Hi Jeff: Wow, I am overwhelmed by your kind words. Thank you so much.

      But please don’t be saddened by my announcement. ElvisBlog is not going away. It is just moving to email delivery.

      I hope you are enjoying this Christmas season and have your health issues under control.

      Thanks for being such a good friend.


  6. Hey Phil, happy to pay for such great content. Look forward to what’s coming next year. I’m bedbound at the moment so have so much time on my hands that I’m rereading all the old blogs from your site plus a couple of others. Look forward to your invoice.

  7. Hi Phil,
    What happens when you hit 1,000 posts?

    • Hi Katgirlblue. I’ll probably retire. But, I do enjoy coming up with these blog posts, so you never know.

      I appreciate you being a regular reader.


  8. I think not. I enjoy the Elvis blog except when you had the Muppets dressed as Elvis the God awful Picasso t shirts
