*Wonders into ESL Headquarters, takes a look around and sees that nothing has changed. Her tea mug is in the same place she left it however many days ago. The whiteboard used to jot down ideas for future posts, is still in the same spot,along with our favorite color dry erase markers. The board is clear of it’s usual clutter of those different colored markers. After jotting down a message to my girls, I sit down in my favorite spot(bean bag chair)to start a long-awaited post. I don’t know what it will be yet, I just know it feels good to be at another place I call home.*
I know I have not been here in a while and you probably think that I may have abandoned you all or went missing in action.
I assure you that is not the case. I would never do that to our faithful readers, nor would I do that to B, Erika, or Evie. They are my sisters, even if not by blood. We are all still one big family.
I simply went on a much needed vacation, away from the True Blood fandom for a while. I think most of you may know that I started a new blog in a different fandom. I did not realize that I needed a break but since taking a vacation of sorts, my mind is more clear and the creative juices were flowing again. It helped having another outlet where the creative juices flowed like magic from my fingertips again. I felt as if I were all used up. I think I got this now!
I have wondered during these last few weeks of my vacation if I was too hard on True Blood. Was I an entitled viewer who wanted to see great, quality television and felt as if she was getting short-changed? Was I wrong about my feelings toward the show the last couple of seasons? I wondered if I was wrong about True Blood and that we all really watched 7 great seasons?
WRONG! I was not wrong because it was still awful and nothing can change that but guess what? I miss all the little things that came with this fandom. Mainly, all the readers of this blog that we connected with due to this show. I still have my friends from here at ESL and from SVB. I miss Sunday Skars, Fangpinions, Throwback Thursdays and Flashback Friday’s.
I wanted to incorporate some of those things into my new blog (the latter three mostly) but they belong here at ESL, my first real blogging home. (Note: Sunday Skars was a SVB thing but deserved a mention)
I am finding new friends in my new fandom and it has the same feel to it. The camaraderie is there, that same sense of passion and love and I love being just as much a part of it as I was in our True Blood/Eric/Sookie world. The Outlander world sticks together just as much and as well but you never forget your first.
I miss all you crazy but loveable readers of ours. I especially miss writing here and I will have to think of great posts to entertain you Wenches with. I am great at multitasking when I put my mind to it and can handle two different blogs, especially since I have help and it is established now.
I really miss B, Erika (who probably has a hangover) and Evie so much and talking about casting calls, episode titles, what songs would be used and who was going to review what episode. It’s amazing what you get used to. I feel we are at a new learning curve with this blog and what exactly we plan on doing. We have just been winging it, (Evie and B especially)and it appears that flying by the seat of your pants is working. I will try to be more present and do my part to bring you, our faithful readers, some really great posts!
I leave you with this Throwback Thursday moment! xxxx
