Hello Taylor Nation,
This my 900th post! Back in November 2009, I started a blog to compile all news regarding the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar and The Agency. It started as a bit of an experiment. I was aiming to compile all news in one place and get rid of the huge banners and fan-created picture collages and just give you the story. I also wanted a different point of view of established news sites who seemed to completely ignore the history of the Sparkly Dressed’s rise and kept referring to outdated incidents or reporters who just got every single fact plain wrong. I also wanted to add some sort of humorous spin when the situation was right for it.
It’s been quite a trip, and in the meantime I’ve gotten some very nice feedback. To tell you the truth, I’ve always had a selfish reason for doing this: I like blogging. I like putting a funny but nice spin on all things Taylor and nothing would sadden me more than go big, have to run everything I write past a board, or have each post be written by someone else. Fortunately, there’s no danger of that happening. It’s always been a bit of an ego trip, so staying grounded is a constant challenge.
During the blog’s run, I’ve met quite a few of the people I write about. Al Wilson, Amos Heller, Caitlin Evanson, Daniel Sadownick, David Cook, Elizabeth Huett, Grant Mickelson, Mike Meadows and Paul Sidoti have been a blast to meet. I’ve also met Charity Barony, Claire Callaway, Dominique Kelley, Fernando Miro and Meredith Ostrowsky from the Residents. I had the chance to shake hands with Scott Borchetta. I have also sporadically blogged about other stars such as Mallary Hope and The Civil Wars, and met them in real life. The Enchantress is still missing from that list.
What’s next? Well, I’ve learned not to try to foresee the future and just take it one step at a time. Certainly T-Swizzle has more headlines to make, and I’m more than willing to write my own version of what happens. With unnecessary nicknames. Plus some song lyric references. And ninjas. Thank you, thank you, thank you everyone, one and all, for reading so far!
