PLEASE READ: Stepping Down   34 comments

Hi everyone,

I’m not quite sure how to write this blog post, it’s very hard so I’ll make it short. Close to three years ago I created this site and as it has grown it has become a big part of my life. However, over the past year and especially the last month, many things have happened in my personal life and the time has come for me to step down for a while. Right now my main focus is to take care of my family and loved ones. I don’t have the time to take care and maintain Thinking of Rob any longer. 


The site is NOT shutting down. I’m leaving you in the good hands of DreamySim1, MyRobAddiction, SparksTP, Slowie, robmusement , DonnerSun & _blackrose26_. The girls will keep the site updated as they always have, they are some of the best so I know they will take good care of ToR while I’m gone. I will be back, I just don’t know when.

I want to take a moment to thank you all for everything you’ve helped us accomplish in the last years. You guys are amazing, never forget that.

I’ll still be on Twitter, those of you who know me know where to find me.

  33. Dear Marie, I’m very sorry to read this… 😦 We don’t know each other personaly, but I have enjoyed knowing you a little bit trough your wonderful blog, and you know all the good things I think of it. Reading what the people who do know you have written, you sure come across as an amazing and caring person… Thank you for everything, for your hard work and your sens of humour and your respect of Rob, and also for talking about books : I’ve read Hunger Games,Divergent and Shatter Me, many good hours of fun – and sleepless nights – 🙂 I hope that everything is going to turn ok for you and your loved ones, I too think that you are doing the right move, and I wish you all the courage and strength you need. Please take good care of you, and hopefully we will read you again on this blog. Also thank you for not shutting the site down and to all the girls who are keeping the good work. Mes meilleures pensées t’accompagnent, sincèrement et amicalement. * Hugs de Montréal *

  34. Marie,
    I’ve been in this world of fandom for a long time and it takes a strong person with a good heart to know when to back down and put family first. BELIEVE me I’ve seen people let their families go over celebrities they’ve barely met and surely do not know. It’s very sad.
    Your a good person and my thoughts and prayers are with you and yours. Sending healing energy and strength your way.
    Be well.. take good care
