OTC's 1-Year Anniversary


Yes, one year ago today we started our little Twilight blog. It was originally a blog for five people to share their thoughts and excitement over Twilight, (thus, "Our" Twilight Chronicles), but it has become so much more since then.

We want to thank all of you, our followers, for supporting us and becoming part of Our Twilight community. We've really enjoyed getting to know so many of you! You guys are great!!

So to celebrate, we're giving away a Twilight throw for you to cuddle up with while watching your Twilight DVD for the upteenth time :-)

All you need to do is leave a comment on this post, let us know how long you've been a follower of our blog, and you'll be entered to win ~ it's that simple. The winner will be selected via a random number generator. The last day to leave a comment for the giveaway is Friday, August 21st!

**NOTE: If you're commenting under Anonymous, please be sure and leave your first and last name. We won't know who you are if you don't. If you've already posted, just resubmit your comment and include your name.

This is a world-wide giveaway ~ it doesn't matter where you live, you're eligible :-)

Thanks ~ and Good Luck!

my name is Florentina Assmann (16 years old) nd I live in the Netherlands. I came across your site while making an English assignment. I had to make a speech about vampires and I had to look for extra information. via google I got to your site. this was about 6 months ago and I visit your site almost everyday since.
OTC is the best twilightsite you'll find and I recommend it to all my friends. I
always leave comments when I find an article funny or something. I always sign it with HS which stands for HeavenShadow, my nickname.
I am a writer myself and Twilight has been an amazing source of inspiration to me. So thanks Stephanie Meyer, for bringing twilight into my life.

and thanks Our Twilight Chronicles for letting me look forward to coming home and turning on the computer :)

Hi! I'm Jimena Oddo and I'm from Argentina. I remember when I first came across with this blog: I googled "twilight site" and after visiting loads and loads of sites (which where not of my liking) I clicked on this one and my daily routine changed forever!
Since the past 5 months I've been religiously visiting this blog, waiting for any news you publish about the saga that made all my romantic imaginations come true.
I'll be anxiously waiting for the release of New Moon!
Because of you I got to know that here in Argentina it opens in theaters on November 19th (my birthday!!!!). I'm so happy that I'm even capable of skipping college to go and see it on its opening day!

Thank you a million times!!!!

Happy anniversary!! This is one of my fav blogs that is a must-read. I've been following you since about May I'm guessing, maybe April? April is when I discover the Twilight Saga and immediately became hooked. A day without Twilight is like a day without sunshine. And we want that sunshine to see Edward sparkle!!

Lady Luck said...

congrats for your birthday -- u are really doing a grat job! I entered the world of twilight recently,and I read the last pages of New Moon early this morning. Your blog is the first place I ran into while searching for something more about twilight.
I live in Italy, but I was in nanaimo, Canada, last years and also made a couple of trips to Tofino and Vancouver and it is great to know that those magical places are the background of the saga..
Again, congrts & good luck to everyone!

After that I had to have my daily fix of Twilight news and I found your blog early November 2008 and added it to my favorites on my computer right away! Thanks for keeping me in touch with the Twi-World we have come to love so much for almost a year!

Shhh, stay quiet. Hang on a minute.... Ok, coast is clear now. Sorry about that but I'm a secret Twilight fan, well not so much a secret fan but one that must work very hard to hide my obsession.

I am a teacher (in Australia) and about 6 months ago I noticed that all the girls in my class had these books on their desks, there were some with hands holding an apple and some with flowers in red and white. I asked a student one day what they were reading, she said "It's Twilight Missm you know T-W-I-L-I-G-H-T!"

I was confused, why should I know about this. So I went out that weekend and bought Twilight form my local book store. I read it in less that 24 hours, I couldn't put it down. Then I bought New Moon and Eclipse too, I read them in one weekend. I tried to hold off buying Breaking Dawn cause my children and husband were suffering due to my obsession, but I couldn't. When I had finished the books I hired the movie, and I loved it.

Then a completely new obsession started - the cast of the movie. So I searched online, researching for weeks to find out as much as I could, I bought magazines if the cast were on the cover, I read the books again, it was getting out of hand.

Finally, after weeks of trying to quench my Twilight thirst (excuse the pun) I found this site. So now everyday I come here to escape in secret to all the fantastic news and blogs posted here.

The best part is going to school now, wearing my Edward Cullen earrings and telling all the girls in my class what I found out today about Twilight.

I better go, husband and children to tend to.
CONGRATULATIONS on turning one, keep up the awesome work, I REALLY appreciate it!!!

D said...

Can I say I love your blog? I've probably been reading it for nearly the year you've been around, and it's really my only source for Twilight news!

I'm a grad student with so much on my plate that at times it's mind-boggling, so Twilight has been my escape for the past year when I just need some obsessive pop culture me time! Thanks so much for keeping me up to date, and always having fun while you do it!
