Wow! I'm at 300 followers! Thank you everyone for following my little blog :-)
Its been about a year since I started this blog. I really didn't know where it was going to go, I just knew that I wanted to present a Rockabilly option. I'd been following blogs for a while and felt an overwhelming dislike and misunderstanding of what Rockabilly is. There were lots of negative comments and shouts of "I'm not rockabilly!!!" which I always found funny, especially when they were coming from people who were, at one time, into it. I never understood bashing something that you used to be a part of. I can understand if it really is not what you are into, but it just seemed like it was 'cool' to not be rockabilly.
I'm not trying to rant here or call anyone out. My goal was always to present all of this in a positive light. To share the things I love with whoever chooses to follow me. I never want to make anyone feel bad for who they are, how they dress, or what they enjoy. Its not my place to judge. Not that I don't judge, because I think everyone does, but I have no interest in ranting those things on here.
For the most part this has been a really great, positive experience. I have never gotten any hate mail or negative comments. I'm sure there are those out there that don't like me or think I am a vintage snob, as that seems to be what all vintage lovers get called at some point, but I don't really give a rats ass. There is snobbery in every scene, every group, everywhere and you can feed into it, let it bother you, or just ignore it. I just ignore it. And at the end of the day is it really that big a deal? So someone at the bar is judging you for wearing a repro dress, or wearing a vintage dress...do you really care? Does it really bother you? It shouldn't.
Wow, this kinda did turn into a rant. I apologize. I just want everyone to know where I am coming from. I try to talk about lots of different things on my blog because I am interested in all of them. I do associate myself with the Rockabilly crowd (proudly) but thats not all I am. I like modern music and pop culture, history and paranormal. I love and collect vintage but I also have a weakness for Forever 21. And it may shock some of you, but I like repro!! I love Heyday and Trashy Diva and Whirling Turban, just to name a few. I try to share all of that on here and I try to keep it all positive. This started as a happy escape from my crappy job and even though I don't have the crappy job anymore I'd still like to keep this blog upbeat.
Well as a thank you for following me I am planning a giveaway. I am not sure yet what it will be so keep checking back. I have a lot of things going on this month and will be really busy, so I will have to see if I can even do a giveaway in that time. But I just want everyone to know that I appreciate them and their comments.
