This is the End...Probably...Who Knows...

As you can clearly see, the blog hasn't been active for a while. It won't be. Let me explain why I've decided to stop.
Late last year, Eric came to me and told me he wanted this year to be the last year of Dollar Bin Horror Radio. I understood his reasoning and agreed. He just released a fucking novel. Something to be proud of! He wants to fully commit to writing and getting a second novel out (in less than six years this time) and I support him 100%! It may not seemed like it as we only did the show once a week, but it took up a lot of time. We talked about themes. We worked on getting guests. We worked harder on the radio show than the blog. Which is one of the reasons why I'm stopping the blog. The radio show became the glue. It was what kept me blogging. Without the anchor, the ship must sail. I've been doing this since I was 18...I'm 26. That's a LONG fucking time for a blog. It's been fun...
And not so fun. Reason #2. I LOVE horror. I wanted to write about it. Talk about it. Become a part of it. I did for a little while and I will never forget that. I got to be an author, a talk show host, a blogger, a film critic...I think I even got a credit or two in a couple films. But along with that, I got hate. I got cyber bullied. I got harassed. Why? Because sometimes, my grammar was shitty. Because some people gotta find something to bitch about...and apparently, I was something for a moment. It's happened on a few occasions. Why? Who the fuck knows. Right now, I don't care. It was a while back in the blog history, but it still pisses me off...
Which gets me to reason #3. I got a rule...If it ain't fun anymore, STOP. It's not fun anymore. I wanted to blog because I loved horror. I wanted to be IN horror in some small way. A while back, Eric (my guardian angle it feels like at times) and another person joined me in posting (I will not say his name because he turned out to be a dick and I would rather forget he exists...but he does and I must acknowledge him somehow...so we'll say "he"). He wanted to change things. He wanted to turn my BLOG into a BUSINESS. I, stupidly, listened. I tried advertising. I did more screeners. I took on more shit that I never bargained for...and I began to hate it. I began to hate the blog. I wanted to have FUN. I wanted to just be a FAN who was in the mix...but once he "left", it got fun again! I felt like I was back in control. Me and Eric did the show AND the blog OUR way...
But now it feels like we've done everything we wanted to do. Talked about everything we wanted to talk about. Horror is AMAZING...but there's just so much one can say without feeling like it's been said before. I LOVE this blog. I LOVE every single person who has ever even visited this blog for a MOMENT!!! It shall remain up as a history of the baddass things me and Eric were able to do and experience in that last 8 years (holy shit...), but don't look for anything new. I highly doubt that will happen. It's ok though. I'm still gonna LOVE THE FUCK out of horror movies. I'm still gonna collect my Living Dead Dolls. Still gonna zombie walk, Still gonna do conventions, still gonna be me...just less internet time and more LIFE time! I love you all (even you fucking bully bitches! LOL)
Thank you to Eric for without you, this blog would have been dead YEARS ago!!!! YOU ARE MY FUCKING HERO AND I LOVE YOU LIKE A FUCKING BROTHER FOREVER!!! And I can't wait to see you this April at Wasteland!!!!! Thank you to ALL THE BADASS READERS!!!! LOVE YOU TOO!!!!
Who knows...maybe I'll wanna blog again...if so, hopefully this will still be here and I can pick it up again...only time will tell. Oh and P.S. This post was NOT grammar checked. Fuck you.
ALSO...I'm still keeping the name Dollar Bin Horror open...maybe I'll make that movie I've always wanted to make...who knows...only the future will know...I hope so.
