MY PENULTIMATE POST ON ORBLE
October 30th 2012 00:16
Back on August 14th I indicated that I would soon be making an announcement.
Itís almost All Hallowís Eve Ö That time has arrived.
Itís been a rollercoaster year so far, and Iím stepping off the Orble ride. After Halloween I will no longer be posting on Horrorphile Ė Pleasure Of Nightmares. I am moving on from underneath the Orble umbrella, slipping into the Darkness momentarily whilst I build my new platform.
Iím looking at it as a re-birth; like the phoenix from the fire.
I started Horrorphile in August 2006 as a curious delving into the relatively new realm of ďbloggingĒ. 1105 posts later and that world has changed dramatically in the six years Iíve been involved with Orble. Iíve had a good time in this neck of the cyber woods, and Iíve met some great people, several of whom have become good friends, and Iíve garnered an impressive following. But the time has come to spread my wings wider, soar higher, fly further.
However there are two very important elements to my departure from Orble. Please take note!
1. Although I will no longer be posting on Horrorphile Ė Pleasure Of Nightmares it will remain active as an online archive. No one else will be stepping in as host, editor or mediator, however I will endeavour to answer as many comments as I can, but I canít guarantee a swift reply.
2. As soon as I have my new website up and running I will provide a banner here with hyperlink to re-direct traffic. I hope that all my loyal email subscribers will follow me to my new online home. Itís very important to have my True Believers follow my path.
So this is not so much a goodbye, as a goodnight.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jon, Orbleís founder, for providing me with the platform to wax lyrical about the pleasure of nightmares, and for his support over the past six years. I would also like to thank some of the fellow Orble bloggers (past and present) who made my time here all the more enjoyable and interesting; - first and foremost, my pardner in cinť-crime, John Doe, who joined two days after I did, the early years posse; Cibbuano, charles, Damo, Homer Joyce, Natalina, Michaelie, Tracy, KylieW, Nina, DuskDevi, D. Armenta, Dementia, MelissaA, Journeywoman, Luke, Ruby, Stanley, Someone, Kelly Wand, the other serious movie buffs; Matt Shea, David OíConnell, Shaun Katz, Catherine Stebbins, cinemaistruth, and last, but not least, suitably*wounded.
Cry loud and write hard.
And long live the new flesh!
Bryn, your True Believiní, gorehound, terrorfreak, Horrorphile in the Darkness!
