I just finished reading a post by BJ-C who writes the amazing blog: Day of the Woman. Her blog is really what made me want to start my own blog. Though, I still haven't written anything involving horror but still. Anyway...her latest post is about how some people think that there is a certain look that one must have to be considered a fan of the horror genre. Someone posted a comment to her saying that if she "invested in some black dye and tattoos and looked more the part, she could have a bigger following". REALLY!? I'm all for having tattoos and piercings and different colored hair but that doesn't mean that everyone that does not look that way, isn't a horror fan.
Take me for example. Right now, I am wearing a baggy, white Wake Forest golf t-shirt, have my hair in a sock bun and have on jeans. I never attended Wake Forest and I don't play sports...I am wearing this t-shirt because it is comfortable and it was clean. hahaha Am I still a fan of horror movies? Abso-freakin'-lutely!!! I love horror movies!
This blog post will maybe be seen by 10 people...and that's pushing it. Do I wish more people would read it? Sure, I do. But I will not post pictures of myself wearing next to nothing to get readers. That was another topic addressed in BJ-C's blog post. As sad as it is, there are a lot of people out there who think that a woman writing a blog about horror is absurd. Oh...some people. I just don't get it. I'm going to write what I wanna write and make videos of what I want and if you want to read my blog and watch my videos...that's great. If you don't then that is fine too. I just wanted to get that out there. No real reason behind this post...I was just trying to vent. I feel a little bit better. haha
