Happy Anniversary!

3rd party 1.jpg

 

Well everyone, it’s been 3 years since I started this site. It has grown from a little blog on tumblr, to this site on WordPress.

I want to take the opportunity to thank so many people who have helped me grow this site over the past 3 years.

My Bethylville friends! Brandy, Carla, Patti, Suzi, Chrissy, Carolyn, Jenna, Alex. Thanks for the dare to make this site and for helping me getting it started. I would have never thought I could accomplish this without your ideas and cheerleading.

Jennifer…@leftmywingshome. You are the bestest! I adore you and consider you family even though we have never met in person. We will rectify this one day!

To all those who have helped through the years with reviews and banners, you all rock!

My followers! I wouldn’t be here without you. You are amazing for allowing me into your lives. Thank you for reading and taking interest and participating in projects I’m working on. It makes my heart fill with joy to have you supporting me.

All the Bethyl writers out there! Whether you are well known or just starting out, thank you for taking the time to express yourself and get out the ideas that you have. This ship still floats because of every last one of you! I want to be friends with every one of you.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. From the bottom of my heart, I love and appreciate all of you for every part you play in this site!

Keep Singing Podcast

I was interviewed by @dynamicsymmetry in their Keep Singing Podcast. We talked about fandom, my work with this site, and other random things.

I had such a blast and Sunny is so easy to talk to. I laughed so much and it was so easy to talk to them. Please take a listen and let me know what you think.

Thank you to @dynamicsymmetry for allowing me to be apart of this and being so awesome to begin with.

You can listen to the podcast here!

(sorry about the connection issues. Internet issues.)

Theory Week

week 9

Time to put on those thinking caps and bring out the briefcases. Let’s talk theories.

Regardless of what team you are on (Acceptance, Fence or Defiance/Delusional), there are certainly enough questions that need answering.

Why did Beth choose a small pair of scissors to use on Dawn?

Who really shot Beth?

Is she still alive?

Discuss your theories and your favorite ones in here!

Song Week

Let’s get the karaoke started!

Bring out the tunes and let’s sing along as we share our favorite Bethyl songs.

What songs remind you of our favorite duo? Was there a song on the show that you listen to on repeat?

Summer of Bethyl 2017 – Week 1

Week 1.jpg

Oh hello there and welcome!

We have a summer full of fun and all things Bethyl so I hope you came prepared. Unpack those fanfics and photos and get ready to mingle with other Bethylers.

This summer is about celebrating our favorite duo from the Walking Dead and I hope that everyone can remain positive and upbeat for the next 11 weeks.

Once you’ve unpacked, please familiarize yourself with the schedule. Here you will find each week’s theme and links to individual pages for that week.

You can choose to post your favorite things on Tumblr, using the hashtag #summerofbethyl2017, or you can message me directly here.

This week, let’s introduce ourselves. Come out from the shadows and talk about yourself. Where are you from? How old are you? What brought you to the Bethyl fandom? Do you write, draw, fanvid, cheer from the sidelines? We wanna hear from you.

So get those posts up and follow along in our common area.

Thank you for joining us in Summer of Bethyl 2017 and have fun!
