The Twilight Widower - My Orphaned Blog Pick

I love reading other blogs and learning to see things from other people's perspectives.  In my search for good blogs to read, I've come across many interesting ones that I have followed only to later find that they've become "orphaned", never to be updated again.

One blog I started following only to be left hanging (along with 564 Google Followers and  631 RSS Feed subscribers) in June 2009 was this unique Twilight blog.  Do you know how many hundreds of Twilight blogs there are out there?  A LOT!!!  But there was this one in particular that I found which caught my attention because it was written from the perspective of a Twilight fan's husband.  Unlike so many Twilight blogs that focus on the giddy, ogling, obsessive, hyperexcited fan's point of view, this blog poked fun at what it was like to be the "forgotten other half" and I thought it was just so cool and humorous!

This orphaned blog is called Twilight Widowers Anonymous because it details the life and feelings of a husband left behind while his wife joins the many Twilight fanatics who can't get enough vampires in their lives. In fact, its subtitle says it is "A support site for husbands, boyfriends, and life partners of Twilight Addicts. We're all in this together."  Pretty funny, wouldn't you agree?

I hope the Twilight Widower hasn't thrown his Twilight blog in the trash.  I'm sure the hundreds of followers he collected along the way would love to know what life has been like since New Moon was released. Where can all his supporters and fellow Twilight widowers go to share their comments and seek support in light of more Twilight movies in the works?  I think the forgotten Twilight spouses and significant others need you back!!!

I went to the site The Twilight Widower and it is a great site. The only problem is that I tried to leave a comment but it did not work. Oh well, I tried.

Here's your click ........

Love and Blessings,

Though neither my wife are I are Twilight fans, this was a GREAT choice. I really wonder why it's orphaned. And I love the dog cartoon, too. Of course some of do our pointless barking IN our blogs.

Thanks, Bud! I kinda wonder myself why he stopped blogging. Maybe his wife is no longer a Twilight fan? NOOOOOO! I sure hope no! ;)

Love, Love, Love the dog cartoon! Bud's right though some of us do a bit of pointless barking in our blogs!

Great Orphaned blog choice! I love the idea - yes, my family can tell you they were even a bit orphaned while I read the books LOL

Happy Tuesday!

Awesome blog choice. His latest post about Edward Cullen being not as attractive if he was a Zombie is too Funny!!


Liggy said...

Well thank you, Trina and Wolf! I can't say enough about how much I'd like to see that blog get revived. I visit it just to read the old posts and wonder if that's what my hubby feels sometimes when I go nuts about a movie, a book, or another rock star! lol!

That sounds like an interesting concept. But for most people, blog energy is hard to sustain and then maintain.

At least friends don't come and go quite as quickly.

Have a goo day.

@ Just One of The Guys...thanks! And you are so right! At least friends don't come and go quite as quickly as blogs. Enjoy your day, too! ;)
