Sad that I still don't receive $1 for every view this site receives. :-(

 

Man, that was fast.  DegrassiBlog has passed the 2 million view mark.  I’m nowhere close to being the most popular (in other words the casts generally has no clue who I am, and I’m still not 100% sure if the Execs are aware this site and I exist), but DegrassiBlog somehow generates more views than every other Degrassi blog/fansite/twitter/fan entity combined.

Hitting the 2 million mark is kind of a big deal given how fast the site was able to reach it.  It took a little over a year for this site to reach 1 million views.  It hit the 2 million mark in just three months (July – October) thanks to the MASSIVE numbers brought in by The Boiling Point.

THANK YOU to everyone who comes to DegrassiBlog for your Degrassi addiction needs.  I’m glad that not only people come here for information, but to also discuss and debate the show and its issues with other fans…that’s what it’s all about!!

**********************

What is all that sexiness on the screen?!?! Oh wait, that's my Degrassi DVD collection.

 Saturday night I happened to randomly check twitter and saw people saying that they’d seen video of me on the Geminis.  I’m pretty sure I died with excitement at that point!!!

I was seriously this close to not submitting a video.  I did one the Monday night prior, but realized I’d messed up after recording it (they only showed two seconds of my video, which was only 10 seconds to begin with, but I started off the video speaking in French).  I barely talked myself into doing another one the next day, but I’m glad I did!!!

Shout out to everyone whose video was chosen, and thanks to Degrassi-Fans for posting the entire 10-minute Degrassi tribute, which you can view below. The fan-submitted video montage is at the very end:

  6. Kary, what do you mean the cast and execs have no idea who you are? Aislinn and Sam follow you on Twitter and you had that email from Abby Ho after the new rules letter. Clearly they’re aware of you, over at Epitome. So don’t be silly!

  8. SPOILER-ish thing
    IF You notice at around 4:42 in the video
    You can see Holly J in a Spirit Squad uniform meaning…
    1) They let her back on the team
    or
    2)Her part of the video is old(which I doubt)

    1. I figured that was old since they also have clips of a lot of old cast members who are no longer on the show (which seem to be filmed inside the school too).

      1. Nope that is not old
        because if you follow Stephen Stohn on twitter
        he said that he had Spike and Craig on set, this would explain why
        Also everyone looks significantly older so This must be new.
        Maybe without Jenna on PowerSquad they needed another memeber, and who else but Holly J would fit >.>

    2. It can’t be that old because her hair is significantly shorter. HJ was kicked off the power squad in season 8.

    3. Could that power squad is hurting for members. There’s Chantay, Anya, Jess? Jenna is having a baby, so the need for a power squad veteran could be why…

  13. Annie Clark in response to TheStarScoop : “We just finished filming Season 10, so I know where Fiona’s at right now, but I have no idea what’s going to happen next season. She took the biggest turn this season. I can’t even wait to find out what’s going to happen next season! As for where Fiona’s at right now, it’s going to be something a little unexpected, and I can’t wait for everyone to find out what’s going to happen. And Fiona and Adam, I love that relationship between them because it calms Fiona down a bit. I think she tends to get a little crazy and she likes to jump into things. Something happens at the end of the season where you really see who she is without all of the drama and the craziness she likes to put on top of things. I think that’s when you’ll really see Fiona. It will be the most interesting part, I think…”

  14. Annie Clark’s further response to TheStarScoop: “We finished two weeks ago and a couple of the cast members and I went to Cuba. Now I’m just kind of hanging out until next season. We’re going to start that in March. I’m still auditioning like all of us are right now for the next couple of months. It’s kind of hard to sink your teeth into new projects when you’re going to turn around and start filming Season 11.”
