Well blog followers and sometime readers, as you know I was in the middle of talking about the horror movie trilogies and sequels in my collection at the beginning of October. Well around that time I got sick and wasn't feeling up to posting and then of course holidays rolled around and a lot of overtime and work that left me too tired to blog. Then December rolled around and a lot of things seemed to overwhelm me. Not just Christmas and work but a touch of winter blues involving people in my life important to me as well as the anniversaries of deaths in my family and my circle of friends. All of this came to a head for me when I saw on the news about the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.
Now I for one have never believed that action and horror movies are to blame for people going out and shooting or killing people but I do believe that some things are in bad taste to talk about when something of such horrific magnitude has happened. I am not abandoning my blog nor am I ever going to stop talking about the movies I love but for now I have decided not to talk about horror movies or any other movie I feel may be in poor taste according to my standards. That said my blog will be more focused on light hearted subjects such as animated and family oriented films.
I am not meaning to alienate those of you who love horror films but being that I am almost thirty years old and entering a time in my life where I hope to be a wife and mother I need to focus on that other side of my persona. Though it will be weird for new readers to see horror and then more light-hearted films I hope that those of you who are faithful can understand. In a way, this is how I feel I can best pay respects to all of those poor little ones who had to be taken from their families just before a holiday I always associated with being a child.
I hope you all continue to visit There's The Girl With The Blog as I look back at nostalgic movies from my little girl childhood and fellas, I'll understand if you are turned off for awhile. I hope to talk about movies with you for a long time and I can promise you that I will return to the horror genre again someday but no guarantee on when that may be. Stay tuned...I'll be back at the first of the new year with my first blog post.
Thank you all so much
