What this blog is (and what it is not)

If you’ve stumbled across this site, thanks for coming by to visit!

There are many, many people writing in blogs, magazines, and all over the Internet about soap operas. I know I am adding yet another blog to that list.

I thought it would be easier to tell you what my goals are, and what I intend to do, by sharing with you all of the things I am NOT trying to accomplish.

I am NOT an expert of any sort. My ideas, opinions and thoughts come solely from being a fan of the genre for the last 35 years.

I do not have any knowledge of backstage happenings, inner workings or industry gossip. I have never had lunch with Jill Farren Phelps, or sat next to Hogan Sheffer at the barber shop. I have not gone drinking with the writers, nor have I slept with any of the actors.

There are a multitude of people who can talk to you about soaps and give you in-depth reporting, insightful features and logical, solid criticism. I will try my best to do so here, but I have to tell you: I’m a dreamer. Head in the clouds. And sometimes, I think the best thing in the world is not to hear the voice that tells you, “This is always the way it has been”. Sometimes, the small voice saying “I had an idea” is the most courageous one of all.

In short, I’m not reinventing the wheel…I offer you nothing truly new notable to encourage you to read my blog. Just my perspective from the peanut gallery. And my love of this genre.
