A long time ago (ok in 2009) I started writing a blog that focused primarily on TV and since then I have been lucky enough to start writing for several other websites, that also mostly focus on TV. The amount of words that are typed daily on this subject continues to grow and so I thought I would add a few more. The other sites I primarily write for give me opportunities to write about current shows including Mad Men, New Girl and The Vampire Diaries (for TVOvermind) and I also get to dive into the past for This Was TV where teen shows such as My So-Called Life and Freaks and Geeks have been my focus.

So why start up a new blog? The simple reason is that I want to write more and quite often I’ll have an idea that I will either jot down it down in one of my many notebooks or start a word document and only get to the end of the first paragraph. To demonstrate this ultimate procrastination here is a sample of titles that are on my computer:

Friday Night Lights– why this show is important

I have learnt nothing from all the crimes shows I have watched

Sarah Lund as McNulty

The Comedy of Optimism

What Lipstick is She Wearing?

Some of these titles are self-explanatory (Friday Night Lights) and others seem more random – guess which one I wrote after my phone was stolen. Going back and reading these pieces (or intros to articles forgotten) I felt guilty for not having followed through, even if some of the ideas weren’t all that great to begin with. As I’ve mentioned above, I am quite the procrastinator and a lot of this is achieved by reading great work by other writers, writers that I admire and want to emulate but half of the time I should focus on what I am doing rather than wistfully working my way through half of the TV criticism online.

This is what I am going to and these half written ideas, that sometimes don’t even have titles will become fully fledged and live here. Why name this blog “TV Ate my Wardrobe?” Someone close to me has observed that a lot of my Twitter TV observations and Tumblr posts revolve around fashion and costuming in television and while this won’t always be the central theme of this blog, it felt like a good place to start.

    Loved your Outlander atticle on the Observer. My sympathy on your father’s passing and many best wishes on your wedding. If you want a touch of TV Outlander they make nail wraps in the Jamie Fraser tartan. Think pedicure. Will pass along source if your interested. Keep up the good work.

      Thank you Susane, I really do appreciate that. It was a hard/cathartic piece to write.

      And I would love the source to that please. I have no idea what I’m doing with my nails (I’ve never had a pedicure), but I do want to do something and this sounds like a lovely idea.
