#TeamRobsten

Man-o-man!  I can’t believe another year has gone by! They never told us that the older you get, the shorter your days, months, and years seem. A lot has happened me this year, perhaps the biggest being that I made the decision to move out to Los Angeles, chasing a dream that only being a part of the Twilight fandom introduced me to. I’ve been stressed out lately, trying to keep up with this site while juggling a full time job and two other websites (Strictly Fifty and Fanspired). I have asked for your feedback about what your reaction would be if I were to close SR (don’t worry, this isn’t a letter announcing that .. and I don’t think there will ever be one) and unanimously it was to never close it, but you were all supportive and told me that if the news were delayed an hour or two to a day or so, you’d forever still be here. I want to take the time now to thank you for your relentless, loyal support of me and Strictly Robsten. I stress myself out each and every day because I know I can’t deliver the website that I promised you. I can’t be online every hour of the day, posting about the latest new/old photo shoot pics or Rob and/or Kristen’s whereabouts (unless that news hits after 8pm PST). For those of you that know me, you know that I feel utterly embarrassed and destroyed by posting such news “late.”

This letter, is an open apology to you for my lack of being here, for you. Life has hit me hard, and I’m doing my best to stay afloat in the fandom, but man-o-man am I burying myself deep. What I ask of you is patience. I am currently in the process of hiring new admins to takeover the daily happenings of Strictly Robsten. I will still post when I can, but these people will become the new voice of SR. I will make an announcement of who these lovely ladies will be soon!

I used to do something special for New Year’s .. like last year’s 4-part timeline (2012 was a busy year!) .. but this year, I’m not sure if I have the time. Please know that Strictly Robsten is here for you. There’s nothing I love more in this world than sharing the latest Rob and Kristen news with fans like you. I love y’all!
