State of the Blog Address

dingoRUE has been around for just shy of one year now and am I ever amazed at the progress the site has made in such a short period of time.

I originally started as a personal blog to talk about my passions: reality TV, TV shows, celebrities, Vancouver and whatever else I felt like saying at the time, and now look at it. In the short time the site has been up and running it has evolved from an unfocused mish-mash of things with an ugly theme to a TV and reality TV focused blog with a pretty theme (or I think so at least), a strong fanbase and a decent amount of traffic. Eleven months ago I would have never guessed things could have gone this way, but man am I ever happy they have. The popularity of the site is increasing, along with the traffic, with every passing month and things just keep getting better and better. dingoRUE is even starting to generate enough revenue every month to pay the TV and Internet bills, which is a huge bonus.

The site has also afforded me an opportunity I would have never had without it. As I briefly touched on yesterday in the Heroes episode 22 spoilers post, I am going to be featured in the June/July issue of BC Business Magazine as one of BC’s many budding bloggers. Thanks to the kindness of John Chow, an extremely succesfull BC based blogger who blogs about how to make money online, a writer for the magazine called me for an interview a few months ago. The interview lasted some 30-minutes and just this past monday the magazine sent a photographer to take some pictures for the article. I have got to say, as much as I love celebrities, I could never be one. Having a photographer hang around for four hours to try and get the perfect shot of ‘me in my natural state’ had me a little on edge, to say the least. But it will no doubt all be worth it once I get my hands on a copy of the magazine and see my goofy mug amungst some of BC’s finest businessmen.

This entire post is basically my incredibly long winded way of saying thank you! I’m all to happy to blog about my passions and, quite frankly, am amazed anyone reads what I have to write. None the less, I appreciate every readers involvement in and thank all of you, new and old, for supporting the site.

  1. I was not sure I would be able to live blog on Fridays. Terrible new time slot. Though I usually am able to watch it at least later on Fridays, so perhaps I may start up again.

  2. that would be great…if you can…thank you for all the hard work you put into this site…don’t know how you do it but you do an awesome job
