The Horror Blogosphere

I started this blog near the beginning of January. I had no preconceived notions that it would become anything big, special, or that it would garner any attention. I did it all simply for the sheer value of being another voice in the world of Horror voicing their opinions and ranting about what greatly interests me.

But, as of late, it's slowly becoming something more than that. I went out of my to way to try and get to know several other Horror Bloggers whose work I greatly enjoy, and to be welcomed into this world with open arms definitely took me by surprise. Every one has been very nice and welcoming, it feels like I have finally found that one group of friends that I have been searching for some kind of connection of interests in a long time. The Horror Blogosphere is definitely where it's at for me.

Everyone's opinion may vary, each blog a different voice and stance on things...but we all meet in the middle with one common bond: The love of Horror. It is that which keeps us together as a tightly knit 'family,' if you will. We'll all have each other's back, and expect others to do the same. No reason for backstabbing or betrayal in this little cult, as everyone seems genuinely happy with what they do.

I have gotten to know quite a bit of amazing people as of late. BJ-C (of 'Day of the Woman') has been one of them. She has been there to introduce me to a lot of other workings in this world, as well as very supportive of the work I am going for. She's a great friend, one I hope to always be in touch with as time progresses. Other notable mentions are Rhonny Reaper of 'Dollar Bin Horror,' Patrick from 'Stabbing Stabbing Stabbing,' and Emily of 'The Deadly Doll's House of Horror Nonsense.' There are many more to mention in that list, as they all have welcomed me greatly into this world of Horror Blogging.

I can only hope that this all continues as time goes on. More friendships to be made, and current ones to become more close in terms of bonding. We're all here for the same reasons, and whatever happens between us, I'm sure it's going to be one hell of a ride.
