I'm still here...

You've probably all noticed that I stopped posting regularly, and I apologize for that.  Life got in the way (I had that other TV show to do, nope, I still can't mention which one for another 120 days or more)... and I started my own company.  Frankly though, I was just really bored with American Idol once we got to the Top 12 or so.  I started blogging about the contestants, but 2-3 shows a week X a couple of hours a show really starts wearing on you after awhile.  It was a full-time job, and honestly American Idol doesn't mean that much to me (it shouldn't mean that much to anyone, minus contestants).  It's really sad how they've turned something that should be 8 or 9  1-hour episodes into about 120 hours of television watching, when 45% of it is commercials, advertisements, music videos, guest appearances, etc.  I just got sick of it.

With that said, I am still around and I'm loving that people are still reading this blog and writing to me.  I get several e-mails a day... keep them coming!  I love hearing about all of you and your children and your spouses and your auditioning experiences.  If there is anything you want to know, just ask-- and as auditions start approaching again this summer, eventually I'll share some of your experiences with others as well.  So for now, just send in the questions, prepare for your auditions (make sure you REALLY want to do this),  and be the best you can be.  And for goodness sake, when you go to the audition make sure you note which letter they put by your contestant number (and tell me if I'm right-- I'm sure I am!)

Until then, good luck!  I'll post here again when I have something else to say!
