[Announcement] Forever Seomate no longer posting updates
It is with a heavy heart that I write this post to you all today, but it is something I have been thinking for a good while and have had time to think through. I have decided to stop posting news , picture and video updates on Seohyun and the other 8.
When I started this blog about a year and a half ago, not only was it the only English-language blog strictly for Seomates out in cyberspace, but I had intended it to be a place where I can spazz and rant to my heart’s desire. My updates weren’t the most thorough, but there was plenty of spazzing going on for a girl that I felt was overlooked by others in the fandom. I sought not only to express my feelings, but to find a nice community of spazzers.
While I still love this girl dearly and am still a crazy SONE, I’ve found it tedious to post updates. Not only are there other blogs that do a better job of it, it really is too much to take on by myself. I found myself missing important updates and lacking the motivation to post the hundreds of photos that are released of Seohyun and SNSD on a daily basis. I felt it was better to leave this type of thing to people who enjoy doing it and are much faster than I am.
So what does this all mean? This does not mean I am no longer a Seomate. This does not mean I’m shutting down the blog. I am keeping it open to post the occasional opinion post and as a place to spazz about any new developments or old treasures that I may find. I might keep compiling translations of interviews that come out as well. But, I will not be posting current news and photos on a daily basis. My blog is pretty redundant considering there are more sources out there now for people who need every current news item.
That being said, there may be folks out there either that are following this wordpress or my twitter that do actually get their updates from me. If you’re one of those people, I’d kindly like to direct you to some awesome sources for Seomate news.
- YongSeo fans: Sweet Potato Days does an awesome job on staying up to date on everything Seohyun does and the girls as a group. And if you’re not a YS fan, but don’t mind seeing CNBlue and couple items in the mix, then I’d still recommend it as a great way to stay updated.
- Strictly Seomates: My-Seobaby is an Indonesian fanblog for Seomates that popped up a little after I started my own blog. They have been awesome at updating all pictures, video clips and news almost as soon as they are released. When they do post translations, they are not in English, so I’d have to say that’s the only draw back if you’re not Indonesian.
- Seohyun DC Gallery is a Korean forum for Seohyun and usually has the most current updates. However, the drawbacks would be that you have to know which links to click on so you don’t waste your time going through posts that you won’t understand anyway. With a browser that translates for you, it’s pretty simple. They do, however, get hit with malware quite often. But it is the site that Seohyun herself said she reads through 🙂
- And of course, there are plenty of twitter accounts dedicated to Seohyun updates, and threads for her at both Soompi and Soshified that you should definitely check out 🙂
I will be keeping my archives of course but have not decided whether I will remove the menu items at the top of my blog. I have also not decided whether to keep the twitter account active or not since I will be posting less often.
I’d like to thank everyone for their support and of course SNSD, for being such a famous girl group that they’ve burned me out with all their updates! 😛 I look forward to posting up more spazzy posts! Thank you.
P.S. Any Hyoyeon fans out there? I also started a blog for her not too long ago, and it is mostly updated by my lovely friend Anye. Our Hyoyeon doesn’t have as many spaces for organized updates, so you may want to follow us if you’re interested 🙂 http://thepoppingchoding.wordpress.com/
