MY PENULTIMATE POST ON ORBLE
October 30th 2012 00:16
Back on August 14th I indicated that I would soon be making an announcement.
It’s almost All Hallow’s Eve … That time has arrived.
It’s been a rollercoaster year so far, and I’m stepping off the Orble ride. After Halloween I will no longer be posting on Horrorphile – Pleasure Of Nightmares. I am moving on from underneath the Orble umbrella, slipping into the Darkness momentarily whilst I build my new platform.
I’m 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 “blogging”. 1105 posts later and that world has changed dramatically in the six years I’ve been involved with Orble. I’ve had a good time in this neck of the cyber woods, and I’ve met some great people, several of whom have become good friends, and I’ve 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 – 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 can’t 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. It’s 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, Orble’s 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 ciné-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 O’Connell, 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 Believin’, gorehound, terrorfreak, Horrorphile in the Darkness!
