I am torn.
After I read the Twilight Saga, I couldn't get enough. I started soaking up everything I could find about Twilight and became addicted to the likes of TwiCrack along the way.
As a writer, the natural progression for me was to blog about Twilight. All the time. I still must. It's an addiction, and if I go too many hours without blogging, I go into twitchy withdrawals. It's not pretty.
But here's the deal. Writing is what I do.
* Blogging about Twilight = puffy heart, sex hair, bedroom eyes, jaw porn Edward love.
* Writing for magazines about the latest foot corn clinical trails = paying the bills.
I had an aha moment. After I named my puffy heart blog, um, Pillow Biters. Which still gives me the giggles every time I say it out loud, btw. If I could score a couple of gigs writing TWILIGHT for bona fide sources, I'd be set...
So when I got my first *real* gig for Hellomagazine.com, I needed a blogger name. For some crazy reason, Pillow Biter was turned down flat. So I became the Twilight Moonlighter.
Enter my second gig, t5m.com. Pillow Biter was a go. I was all ready to go live, until some Urban Dictionary savvy person saw my moniker and said, "WTF?!"
Ok, so it didn't go down exactly like that, but, again, Pillow Biter was turned down. Being the super-duper sleuth I am, I saw a pattern emerging. I was forced to do some quick Cliff's Notes soul-searching.
I whipped out my handy dandy pro/con list, to weigh out changing my name in Twi-Bloggy land and, after much sobbing uncontrollably (fortunately thwarted by the official New Moon trailer; I'm distracted by shiny things, after all) obviously, the pros outlisted the cons.
Finally- I can come out of the closet at home. I can blog Twilight for more than pure addiction purposes (which is huge). And most importantly, you all can still call me PB. If you want. I so love the nickname.
I haven't changed. My blog hasn't changed. I'm still dedicated to bringing you all the sex hair I can find, along with the same newsy tidbits as always.
I just have a smexy new banner, thanks to my FAVS graphics girl of all times who rocks my socks until the cows come home, open.window, without whom none of this would be possible...
And with that- here's my new deets. Update your records. And keep coming back. I heart you all. For realz. And I'll miss you terribly if you run away:
Site Name: Twilight Moonlighter
Site url: http://www.twilightmoonlighter.com
Twitter name: TwiMoonlighter
My e-mail addy: email@example.com
Other places I hang out (you may run, but you can't hide!)
Lastly. If you see a "pillow biter," it may or may not be me. But if you see Twilight Moonlighter, you've got the real deal. True story.
