my first blog post

Howdy to all! This is my first blog post (as you can see in the title section) and I am kind of excited about it.  I think that having a place to vent and babble is a very positive thing, so thanks for watching (you voyeurs, you) and I will be updating this thingamahouky in a quasi-timely manner.  I am also hoping that the more I blog and twitter and just cruise the internet, the more people will find about all the cool stuff I'm up to like (shameless promotion)!  Tally-ho for now :)


  1. Cool stuff you're up to? Like appearing in the soon-to-be-released Strictly Sexual, already in my Netflix Q?

  2. Bonus points for use of the word "Howdy," one of my own personal favorites!

  3. Hi Amber! I'm a fan from Brazil, completely crazy about Buffy. Gosh, Tara was such a precious thing. I love your work as an actress (obviously), and singer and I'm looking forward to see more of storyteller-Amber :P I really like what I've seen so far from ya, and hope you keep doing those great fantasy pieces. Often would be better ;)

  4. Hello, Amber! I'm just one of your many fans out here on the Internet. I think you're adorable and awesome.

    Wow, you finally started a blog. I hope the experience is a fun one. And I hope you continue doing what makes you happy.

  5. How dee! Enjoy the fresh newness while it lasts, before you have to fend off the hordes of Goths and Vandals :)

  6. Oh Amber. You're just lovely. :)

  7. Hey Amber,

    Another awesome and loyal fan of yours. I have actually been having my own little Buffy marathon and have made my way to season 5. I gotta say out of everyone who was with Willow, I really loved the Tara/Willow plus you and Alyson really made it work. I loved every second of it, and cried alot of times to. No one was ever right with Willow again.

    Anyway I won't keep babbling on about Buffy I think your an amazing actress and are an amazing person. Welcome to the blogging world!.

  8. There'll be Goths and Vandals? Please, no...
    Amber, you're the awesomest!

  9. Hi,
    This is Awsome! like so many others, I think you're a great writer, and I can't wait to read Death's Daughter!

    By the way, I need to say this: Tara 4ever!

    Katty, from Chile.

  10. I am so excited to read your blog! I love keeping up with your career so I can bask in your creativity. :) Give me a tweet sometime.

  11. Hey there, found you on Twitter! I'm also on Twitter...

    What have you been up to? What is this "Drones"? I still need to see "Lovers..." Mysteries abound...

    Need a Jerry's catchup sometime. MMM... Soup! (and bagel chips)

  12. Welcome to the world of blogging and tweeting. Looking forward to hearing about all the cool stuff you have been up to.

    Any idea when Death's Daughter will be released in Australia?

  13. just want to say thank you for signing a picture I made at the Buffy reunion. You really took the time to look at it and look at me, so thanks! You are an awesome actress and a kind person, so much success to you in the future and hope to meet you again. Please go to Hallowhedon in October!!

  14. Glad to see you're giving the blog thing a try (as well as the Twitter thing). Having a blog keeps me writing regularly, exercising those muscles I might not otherwise. Consider yourself RSS'ed!

  15. You know, I just love your new interview in the latest issue of Sirens of Cinema (#14, it is). Such a shame you had to tolerate that simpleminded interviewer. ;)

    With this blog, at least, you can speak directly to the masses. Just please try to update a tad more often than that Big Hairy Lesbian pal of yours does with his. :P

  16. Yay, blogging is such a great equalizer. :) I'm totally gonna to check out Ghosts of Albion.

  17. Amber Benson wrote this?! I'll be checking in to see what projects you have in the works.

    All the best!

  18. I'm glad to see you delving further into the online world...hope you don't have to endure too many negative comments.

    Glad to see you're on Twitter! *wink*

    Best wishes!

  19. Welcome to the world of Blogging. You've inspired me to to it as well. Can't wait to read Death's Daughter!

    As always, Continued Success!

  20. Hi!
    Shameless promotion is good, endless babble is great!
    And wat the Smurf? Death's Daughter is not the same price on amazon than where I pre ordered it last December...
    I am giddy about this bog because I love to read blogs (I may be a voyeur indeed ^__^),but also because now I shouldn't learn of any European visit *after* the visit! =D And that's of the good in juju's books!

  21. Just wanted to stop by and leave a comment saying you rock and you're awesome and I wish you the best of luck. Also wanted to say thank you for autographing a ticket for me in Houston, wish I could have been there myself.

    Much love from myself, and I'm sure all of the kittenboard,

    Amanda (or as the ticket was addressed: Kindred)

  22. At last. I don't think that I am the only one who thinks you will be good at this blogging thing. I hope you keep it up.

    Good luck with Death's Daughter.

    I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for re-igniting my interest in comics after I read your afterword for WannaBlessedBe.

  23. *wave* Very cool to see you here.

  24. You have to love someone who says Tally-ho!
    Looking forward to your upcoming projects:-)

  25. Hey Amber!

    Nothing at all shameless about promotion. ;)


  26. Welcome to the world of blogging, but be careful -- it's an addiction that can suck up a lot of time. I love meeting new people and discussing common interests on LiveJournal, but I'm supposed to be working on selling some novels! And as you know, being a novelist is a time consuming process.

  27. Greetings Ms. Benson:

    It's nice to see someone else out there who likes to write as much as I do. It's a science, being able to write sentence after sentence for long periods of time. Just remember, when writing to a guy you like, keep it short. I've discovered that when you write lengthy letters or emails most folks don't appreciate the artist side of things and only notice its' length.
    When I write a letter to a friend or to a lady I'd like to get to know better, I've noticed the hours zip past and the writing becomes almost therapeutic in nature.
    With that in mind I wonder if the words are meant for the recipient or for the writer.

    Anyway, good luck with your blog. I don't have one personally, but then, who'd want to read what I have to say being neither famous nor boo-ti-ful. But I am a firm believer that I am exactly where God wants me to be.

    Cheers from New Haven
