Today marks one year after the first blog post I released on PrettyLittleSith.com! In the past year, I have made so many friends and met many people that play the game. It’s such a joy to see that what I have produced, either in written, audio, or video form has brought smiles to people’s faces. I am so happy to write this blog for everyone, and I’m thankful to so many different people!
Thank you to my guild Despair, who I’ve been with for a year and a half, and especially to my guildies Ben, Film, Sleeth, Drios, Bordeau, and everyone in my operations group! Thank you for being so supportive of my blog and my presence in the SWTOR community and continuing to treat me like a “normal” guildie, putting up with me when I don’t meet my conquest points, when I accidentally stand in reticles, my lackluster crafting attitude, and my Deception Assassin DPS! I’m very happy to be in one of the greatest guilds together.
Thank you for being the best readers a blogger could have! I know some of my posts can get quite lengthy, and I’m so happy that my readers are amazing and intelligent people. I love reading and responding to your e-mails, and I look forward to more in the future!
Thank you to Carla and Jason, who thought I would be a good co-host on Corellian Run Radio, even though I originally asked if I could submit articles for the website! I’m very happy to continue the legacy that our podcast has and to take the podcast into new and exciting directions!
Thank you to Larry Everett for asking me to be on The Republic! It’s been an incredible experience so far for someone that does not produce her own videos or stream. I think it’s been a lot of fun to actually show my face when I talk about the game!
Thank you to Teo, Chill, and Redna for interviewing and talking about me on OotiniCast early on, before anyone ever noticed me! It has been a pleasure to meet all of you in person. Thank you especially to Chill, for listening to my panicked messages about becoming a podcast host on CRR and living up to your name by being a cool, calm, and collected person that I can trust. Also thank you to Redna, for being one of my biggest blog fans!
Thank you Deltia for featuring me in one your interviews for gamers in the community! I felt like a guinea pig, but I’m so proud of your success with your site now! I promise I will try to play ESO when it’s free!
Thank you Chuck and Brian of the Bad Feeling Podcast! It’s like we’re celebrating our birthdays together! You have made me laugh so many times while driving. Brian especially, you have been so friendly and logical, and I’m glad you are a very open and easy person to talk to.
Thank you to Road for working so hard on so many podcasts and also inviting me to be on a few episodes of the SWTOR Galactic Gamer’s Coalition. It was so much fun to be able to talk and discuss SWTOR subjects with other podcasters.
Thank you so much to Madmar for maintaining @SWTORFamily on Twitter and retweeting my work! Thank you for noticing when I try to bring a SWTOR player or community contributor under your nose so that they can be added to your lists. I’m very appreciative that you help to let others know about content that is being produced for the game.
Thank you Olib for creating SWTORNetwork.com! It’s such a beautiful website, and an amazing resource to access different sources of SWTOR content. Thank you for coding in the Pretty Little Sith image when I use the tag on submissions, and responding when my scatterbrain forgets my password!
Thank you to everyone that has “Liked” the Pretty Little Sith Facebook page and/or follows me on Twitter! I love interacting with people about all kinds of different topics, including the game, and I’m so happy that you appreciate what I do and give me feedback. Thank you for giving me ideas on what to write about. It’s also exciting to have met a few of my followers.
Thank you to my friends on the Prophecy of the Five server! If I hadn’t met some of you in person, the SWTOR Pot5 PvP Facebook group would’ve been a lot stranger, but it has been fun. I enjoy the different perspective on the game and even all the crazy things you guys post in the group. Thank you for helping me practice my anti-troll communication skills. Thank you also for being some of my first supporters when I’ve been on The Republic or have done any streaming. I’m sorry I’ve been too lazy to play a character to max level on your server, and that I’m still a bit of a “shitter.”
Thank you to the BioWare community team for including me in your fansites and to EA for inviting me to the EA Redwood Shores studio. That was such an exciting experience I will never forget, and I’m happy I was able to befriend Victoria (SWTORista) and Michael at the event. Thank you Amber Green, though I’ve only met you once at the 2013 Seattle Cantina, for being so nice, funny, and approachable. Thank you to Eric Musco and Courtney Woods for remembering my name and communicating with me about the game! I don’t think I will see you in person much for the rest of this year, but I hope we can meet again.
In the future I hope to self-host the blog once I become more savvy with HTML and web design. I also look forward to writing more, and I’m glad I’ve been able to scratch my writing itch after a long period of writing nothing much at all. Thank you so much to everyone reading, and I’m ready for another year of Pretty Little Sith.
