HAPPY 6th BIRTHDAY & GOODBYE

Dear visitors,

It is with great happiness that I announce OhSoDivalicious.org’s 6th Birthday. We’re six. Six. I turned 21 a week ago and I have definitely grown with OSD over the years. I went from an immature teenager who took everything personally, to a journalism undergraduate, hoping to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts, with Honors, in the subject. I wouldn’t be here without the experience in being a journalist that OSD has given me. Unfortunately, the passion behind this website has gradually deteriorated due to my interest in wrestling extinguishing.

But enough about me. It’s not my birthday, it’s OSD’s. Over the past six years, the website went from having a sole owner to a team. Sure, the team chopped and changed from time-to-time, but what do you expect? This was a hobby for all of us, despite criticism about us being unprofessional and a bunch of children with laptops. We had a touch of success before Twitter, which I’m incredibly proud of, considering how vast the internet wrestling community has become through the social networking site. We’ve interviewed and spoken to some of the most inspirational women in wrestling, women from all walks of life with a variety of experience and we’ve made some friends along the way, too. Pretty good, for a hobby, right?

Speaking of friends, I’d like to give a long list of shout outs to people who have helped OSD in some way or another, but if I leave you out, don’t think I did it intentionally just to diss you.

First and foremost, Shaibani gets the biggest shout out for hosting OSD out of his own pocket. I’ll admit that I wouldn’t have the first idea on how to pay for this web space and domain name without him. He paid for everything, despite his websites on our server not being around anymore. Not only that, but he’s the first person I’d go to for WordPress help. I can’t thank him enough.

The first ‘Team OSD’ in Conor and Lisa Jane – You two helped me get to grips with the whole ‘news site thing’ and kept things updated and encouraged me to maintain OSD. Back on MSN, we used to talk for hours about everything I was breaking on OSD and, well, just everything. Thank you for being there.

General moral and tech support from Shirlz will always be appreciated, as well as all of the exclusive pictures and other bits. Speaking of, Devin and Caleb your contribution of HQ pictures also helped keep something unique and fansite-esque to OSD, when I wanted things to be like that. Thank you.

Everyone who has been part of the team, even if it were for a short while: Donita, Atholl, Stephen, Meagan, Max, Candice and anybody else who I may have missed (apologies!). Your tidbits of news and posts, along with the memories, will be cherished.

I can’t thank Marc and Marcella – aka the Royals enough for putting up with my random moods and standing by me throughout the hate period – I will always be a ‘pig kid teenager’ in a certain someone’s heart, right? Either way, thank you, thank you, thank you.

The papa-paparazzi in Kristen is amazing. Even while we’ve been slow with news, she’s quick to post spoilers and regular flashbacks. The fact that you teamed up with us out of the blue and changed the gallery name to become more ‘Divalicious’ is such a sweet gesture, which increased both of our popularity – boo-yah!

Every single follower, like and commenter gets a special mention. You’re all amazing and I can’t thank you enough for the support. I never thought people would visit my website and you did. Over 500 of you did a day, which is incredible.

So, with a heavy heart, I must announce the closure of OhSoDivalicious.org. Our domain expires in July next year, so there will be plenty of opportunity to view archived content. Feel free to do so. You’ll see how much my writing style has definitely changed, for one – I Mean I Used To Write Like I Was Naming A Fall Out Boy Song – and you’ll also see how we went from a small news site, to something just that little bit bigger. I know I’ll never forget my first ‘proper’ website, and I hope you don’t either.

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

Thank you and goodbye,
Trisha Batley
