Another year, another Thanksgiving. Time really does fly, right?
From all of the team here at Diva Dirt, we’d like to say “Happy Thanksgiving” to all of our fans and followers. Thank you for your continued support of Diva Dirt. We truly appreciate it!
Have a fun and safe day!
— Team DD
And as we do every year, below Team DD reveal what we’re thankful for…
Cryssi: I’d like to sit here and bitch, moan, and complain about all the things I don’t have, the fact that men are disgusting, and all women are jealous bitches, but really, what’s the point? The biggest thing I’ve battled with this entire year is negativity and letting it overtake all that is truly good in my life. I have a lot to be thankful for; I’m employed, I have a great support system at home, and I have two of the best friends anyone could ask for. There’s no reason at all for me to be negative when I have so many wonderful things and people around me. Life is short, and everything happens for a reason. Our experiences shape us as people and make us stronger. I’m going to leave you with a passage from Game of Thrones, where Tyrion is talking to Jon Snow. It’s my favorite and has a very good message. “Would you rather be called the Imp? Let them see that their words can cut you, and you’ll never be free of the mockery. If they want to give you a name, take it, make it your own. Then they can’t hurt you with it anymore.” I’m thankful for many things this Thanksgiving, a thick skin for one. Count your blessings, be happy. If you’re reading this you’re in a better position than the vast majority of the world. I need to remember this. God bless. Oh, and I’m also thankful for Dolph Ziggler. :)
Erin: I think this year we’ve really hit our stride, and I’m thankful that everyone involved with the site (staff, visitors, wrestlers) have been committed to making that happen. We’ve been consistently adding new things to our repertoire, and that’s always important, but I think the key to our success is the ability to just keep moving forward, not just concerned about trying to best ourselves. That means keeping a core audience, staying motivated and finding ways to put our connections in the wrestling world to good use. Everyone contributes, from a reader who tweets a link to one of our posts, to those writing the weekly Reduxes, to the wrestlers and promoters who are generous with their time and are a pleasure to do business with. Without those pieces, we wouldn’t have lasted even half this long, so I’m very, very thankful that everyone is ready and willing to play their part.
Melanie: I say it every year, but it really is true — I feel like I have even more to be thankful for than the year before. I can’t believe Diva Dirt is still going strong and still here today. I take it one day at a time and looking back, I’m amazed by all we’ve accomplished. None of that would have been possible without you, the Diva Dirt fans, and the people who put their time and effort into this site every day. Erin, Steven, Cryssi, Bobby, Chenda, Katelyn and everyone else, thanks for your hard work. To the people who visit this site, thank you all for sticking with us for so long. I’m thankful for the wonderful opportunities we’ve received this year — putting on our first match with ChickFight, successfully launching the Diva Dirt Legacy Award, being able to partner up with WSU on iPPV, and so much more. I’m thankful for the women, whether they be Divas, Knockouts or independent wrestlers, who’ve shown their support and willingness to spare some time for us. Happy Thanksgiving!
Steven: First and foremost, I’m thankful for all the ladies who put their bodies on the line day in and day out for our entertainment. I’m thankful for all the Diva Dirt readers (and haters). Without you guys this wouldn’t be possible. I’m thankful for promotions such as SHIMMER, WSU and Pro-Wrestling: EVE for offering an alternative to the mainstream promotions. I’m thankful to my Diva Dirt collegues. Melanie and Erin, thank you for giving me this opportunity and for being great friends. Cryssi, thank you for being the best Khaleesi a hand could ask for. Bobby, Chenda and Katelyn, thanks for being awesome in general and for always helping me out when I need it. Last, but not least, I’m thankful for all the new people I’ve met and the opportunities I’ve been offered this year. Here’s to another great year!
