Happy Birthday Mobwives.blogspot.com!
Today is the first birthday of our blog and as we approach 1.5 million hits, I think it would be nice to acknowledge all of our loyal readers and supporters who stop by every day to read, comment and share their thoughts and opinions with us. You are all very much appreciated.
A lot of work has gone into this blog since it was started. To date, we have about 620 blogs posted. It has grown almost the way a baby grows, in leaps and bounds, during it’s first year. At first we knew nothing about the show Mob Wives, the cast, the families that they came from or how the idea originated. The blog was a blank slate and we wrote about all the wives in a more objective, even handed manner, the good with the bad. However, over the course of a year of watching, of reading articles, checking out videos, following them on twitter, and actually having conversations with the cast and its creator, our opinions began to be shaped by the events that transpired and the blogs evolved into what they are today. And clearly we favor some cast members over others, we don’t deny it and make no apologies for that, as we are just viewers of the show who decided to write about our experiences, thoughts, opinions and what we have learned, on and off the show.
Most of our readers’ comments have been very positive. We welcome, encourage and read all comments because we appreciate different perspectives, thoughts and opinions, even those who do not agree with what we have written. We have always asked that negative comments and those differing in opinion be stated respectfully and civilly. There is no need to insult anyone to get your point across, in fact that only serves to hinder communication and turn people off to your message. In addition, comments that aren’t respectful and civil will not be published.
I have no idea how much more we will grow in the year to come, but I hope you continue to enjoy our blogs, to comment, and be part of our continued growth and success. It’s amazing how many of us have connected through a shared interest in a television show, when you think about it. It’s even ironic that the mob is blamed for tearing families apart and yet it’s the mob that has brought us all together.
Thanks for making our first birthday so special!
