It's a sad day...

Today we got the sad news that one of the best Robert Pattinson blogs (Robert Pattinson Life) is closing. This saddens me to no mention, because not only is RPLife a classy, amazing blog about Rob (one that has ALWAYS respected Kristen), but the admin, Mandy, is one of the sweetest, hardest working people you could ever meet. I'm truly, truly devastated. And I'm also embarrassed that *some*  in this fandom feel the need to hurt others without merit.

Some have no idea the work that maintaining a blog entails. It takes a lot of dedication, a lot of personal sacrifice and it has to be something you really truly love for you to want to keep doing it. This is a pay-less job that comes from the heart! The reward is seeing other fans (like us) happy that we were able to share something new or exciting with them.

 I want to thank Mandy for her invaluable time and her many sleepless nights blogging and posting amazing pics, videos, interviews & news about Rob. Truly doll, your dedication astounds me. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you. It is without question that day in and day out you gave of yourself to pattinsonlife. You are an amazing person. Thanks for being wonderful D!

If like me you'll miss Mandy and this precious face being blogged about in robert pattinson life.... 


...then leave her a comment at the blog or at the rplife twitter account! And keep up with pattinsonlife (livejournal); while Mandy will no longer be blogging, the lj isn't going anywhere!

With that, now I can mourn in peace...

So sorry to see RPLife go- it's already hard enough to find a Rob blog that respects Kristen without being an actual R/K blog. It's not that I don't love some R/K blogs but being a Rob or Kristen fan doesn't always have to be about them together- it does, however, mean respecting both of them and the fact that they are together. It feels more and more like the sane Rob fans who can appreciate that are being forced further into a corner by the crazies- to the point that, like RPLife, they have no choice but to step away from the madness. Many of us- ordinary, sensible people- may well be driven away completely because the hatred and the crazy makes it too hard to enjoy just being a fan. I would hate the tiny, crazy minority to take over. Sorry- I'm being depressing but this really is a bad day for Rob fans.

God, some people are awful. I will never (thankfully) understand haters at all. But I suppose some losers just feed off of hate. RPlife had the BEST Rob blog out there and they were Always respectful of Kristen. I just don't get it! I usually stay away from any kind of hate so when RPlife shut down I was so shocked and bummed!!! I'm going to focus on the positive, its just too draining to focus on the negative. Have faith @pingvingirl, there are still TONS of cool Rob fans who love Rob and respect whomever he is with. Just ignore (as best as you can) the negative haters out there. They are so not worth it!

Completely agree, such a sad day :(

I'm still shocked and sad.
I can't even think how hard it is to Mandy. If for us is so sad, imagine for her...

This is very, very sad. Mandy is brandnewluv at pattinsonlife, isn't she? Will she be staying on as a mod there...if you know? I certainly hope so because she does an awesome job.

It's such a shame when one nut case unhappy person can ruin something that is so wonderful for other people.

Edit: Oh no! I just previewed this comment before I posted it and I see a line through her name. Has she left LJ altogether? That is really heartbreaking if true. :'(

It is :( Mandy is not blogging anymore. She will not be a mod at pattinsonlife anymore.

Thanks. I've seen more about this and figured that out. So very, very sad. She must be heartbroken.

This is very sad. I think it must be hard and tough on her but I hope she will feel stronger and reconder this. We should not let haters get through our love and admiration for both Rob and Kristen.
