Another Year of Robsten, Celebrating Strictly Robsten’s 2nd Year Anniversary

I can’t believe it’s been TWO years since I publicly started this blog. Time sure does go by! This year definitely had its ups and downs. Our blog, but more importantly, our fandom, was put to the test this year! We lost a lot of friends, but we gained a new sense of strength. Instead of dwelling in the “what shoulda, coulda, woulda beens”, I think it’s time to share the good times from this year:

Melissa Goes to Europe

Melissa took a brief leave of absense this summer to continue her studies in Paris, France. It wouldn’t be a Melissa trip without making it Robsten-related, so she adjusted her trip to include the Paris Cosmopolis screening with Robert Pattinson and David Cronenberg in attendance!

Breaking Dawn Part 2 LA Premiere

This year, I made a pact with Heather that we HAD to go to the last Twilight premiere and meet each other face-to-face! Our dreams became a reality and we found ourselves taking endless pictures of each other along our Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere journey. We were lucky enough to get pictures with the trio, and I totally remember telling Rob, “I love your suit! Green is a great color on you!” He replied in his adorable British accent, “Thanks!” And then, my fangirl heart flatlined. ha! I can’t talk about the BD2 premiere and not mention the lovely, amazing girls of Team HBG — Lynsey, Jenn, and Sarah! I don’t think I could have lasted much longer in tent city if it wasn’t for their great company; I still have stitches in my side from all the laughter!

On The Road in New York City

After experiencing my first Robsten premiere, I caught the bug — the premiere bug, that is! So, I bought my plane ticket to New York City and planned to scope out the On The Road premiere with Team HBG and Heather. Only caught a glimpse of Kristen, but had such a great time meeting more of YOU, the East Coasters! .. And this trip allowed me to visit the infamous Alice in Wonderland statue that was filmed in Remember Me.

Although there wasn’t anything Robsten-related for our ‘meeting’, Brittney made the trek to Texas to hang out with me for the weekend. Finally, ‘The Originals’ of Strictly Robsten met face-to-face. And yes, you guessed it — epic Robsten conversations commenced.

The Host

And finally, The Host. It all started out as a little promo here and there for the movie studio and turned into our first-ever official Press experience! There’s been mixed feelings from you guys about our coverage of The Host since this blog is named STRICTLY ROBSTEN, not Strictly Robsten/The Host. However, with that being said, we support Stephenie Meyer in whatever she does because she brought us all together in the first place :) So much thanks goes toward Open Road Films for taking such great care of us during the promotion of The Host. Words cannot describe the feeling of seeing ‘Strictly Robsten’ written on a piece of paper, taped to the blue carpet of The Host World Premiere. Just to be recognized in that way — !!

This blog started out as just a fun little hobby and has now turned into a career possibility for me. It still amazes me that I’ve made so many forever friends through this ‘hobby’. I love you guys; if there was a way I could hug each and every one of you, I would! Sincerely!

Here’s to another year of continued success and everything Robsten!

  1. Aww, couldn’t help but smile while reading this, except for the ‘losing a lot of friends’ part. You sure did have great ROBSTEN experiences. I just want to thank you for starting this blog and for keeping us updated of our favorite couple. I started following this blog last summer when our couple and the fandom was put to the test and since then I’ve been checking this blog regularly. I’m just so happy that there are still a lot of people who believe in them and that I can say that ‘I survived’ the storm along with Robsten and you guys. I hope you continue what you do and i can’t wait to see what’s in store for our favorite couple. Happy second anniversary!

And it was cool to introduce you all to some of my pals. Here’s to another year of awesome and loyal Robsten Love! And thanks to our awesome supporters!

  9. Hey Melissa, just wanted you to know how much I’ve appreciated my regular visits to SR. I only found you about six months ago, when I was anxious for news of Our Pair and praying they’d be together again, and I’ve appreciated all the comments and updates ever since. In the midst of all the lies and rumours and nasty assumptions about R and K, it’s been a breath of fresh air visiting you in the real world. Thanks for keeping us in the loop on all the news — and happy second anniversary!

    • Thank you! It means the world to hear you say that! We are so appreciative of readers like you! We try to stay true to ourselves and Robsten. Cheers to gossip-free!

        • Aww :’) You are going to make me cry! So happy to spread the happiness! Robsten all brought us together!

  10. I first came here during “that period” of time when other blogs were closing. I also think that this brought us – true fans together and made the fandom even stronger.
    I want to thank you for running this amazing rumor-free blog with real information.
    Happy anniversary! Love you all! :-*
