Thank You

The Green Room has gone dark and people are filing out to congratulate the newest winner of LJ Idol on the lawn: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1048006.html

Before we depart though, I just wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for making this season special.

I know I keep saying that, but that's because it's true.

The internet is big and you've chosen to devote your time and efforts in my little corner, to support this crazy idea I had back in 2006. You've supported it, and keep coming back to support it... and hopefully you will tell your friends and they will come back and support it next time.

Yes. There is a next time. It's probably a mini season, and I don't know if it will be here at Livejournal or somewhere else. I'm still very much conflicted about that, and have a lot of things to think about between now and then.

That's in the future though, this is right now - and right now my shriveled twisted heart is full of gratitude and love for each and every one of you who has come through these doors from that first season to this.

A special shout out to eternal_ot who has been helping Idol out as our voice on Twitter and Ello!

and to murielle who has been running our Pinterest account! I couldn't have done this without you!

If you've enjoyed this season - and want to give back, don't forget the "Tip Jar", Patreon and purchasing from our Amazon Estore. Every little bit helps justify why I'm busy hanging out on my computer! :)

Again, thank you for everything - and I'll see you soon for the next season of Idol Minor, the special season for the kids. I hope that even if you can't compete, you will come out and support the next generation of writers!

After that - well, stay tuned....

Dreslinski Out.

Don't kick me but... *Hug*

Thank YOU for creating this amazing little corner of the Interwebs. Idol has meant more to me than you could possibly know - and I'm sure to so many others as well.

Thank you for dragging me back for another season. It has been brilliant!

Thank you for all the hard work that goes into Idol. You have inspired a lot of people to work on their writing, and you have created and nurtured a unique community. Between work and family, I do not know how you find the time for this, but I am grateful for your dedication.

Thank you, Gary, for hosting this weird and wonderful event once again and inspiring us all to grow and create in such amazing company.

Big thanks to eternal_ot and murielle too, for helping to keep the fires burning on all fronts so that new people can find us and join us in this glorious obsession. :D
