Happy Anniversary, TDW!

29 12 2009

I published my very first post on Dec. 29, 2008, even though no one knew I existed.

At the time, I didn’t know what shape TeenDramaWhore.com would take. I had no idea that soon enough I’d be reviewing the current shows each week, holding trivia nights on Twitter, giving away contest prizes or interviewing beloved teen drama actors.

Nearly 950 posts and one year later, my underlying mission has been accomplished. I wanted to find people that shared my passion for teen dramas and had as much an urge to discuss it as I did. I’m pleased to now know there’s quite a few TeenDramaWhores out there.

I want to thank each and every one of you who ever checked out a post on the site, left a comment, retweeted a link or just showed your support in some way.

There’s a few people in particular I need to recognize:

Madeline for designing my awesome header.

Amy at OneTreeHillBlog.com for being the first site to ever link to TDW.

Christy-Anne at OTHTwitterBugs.com for being my Twitter-busting partner-in-crime and for providing endless moral support.

Angela at Talking Gossip After Dark for promoting TDW in each podcast and seeking my contributions.

Jethro Nededog of The Los Angeles Times for being a legitimate journalist who actually takes my work seriously and spreads it around.

The CW for sharing TDW posts on Twitter.

The One Tree Hill family for also sharing TDW posts on Twitter.

Any publicist or manager who has ever granted me an interview or confirmed a Twitter account or even just responded to my e-mails.

Any actor or teen drama role player who has agreed to be interviewed.

And you for, if nothing else, reading this post right now.

Despite many milestones this past year, TDW still has a lot of growing to do. I’ll spend the next few days reflecting on where we’ve been and sharing my hopes for the future.

I hope you’ll come along with me on this look-back journey and stick around for Year Two.

Congratulations Shari! I just love this site. I remember thinking how cool it was that there was a blog devoted to all these great shows that I’ve watched. I’m a true teen drama whore 😉 I used to just visit the onetreehillblog on a regular basis, but I love that this site covers all things OTH plus my other favs that have ended. Thanks for continuing to keep me up-to-date on all these great shows.
