THE VAULT IS GOING TO GROUND!

It’s been such a wonderful experience for us to work together on The Vault – TrueBlood-online since Shadaliza opened the site in September 2008. It actually seems like yesterday when we (Shad and Lynn) first started, but instead, it has really been over seven years of wonderful fun reporting about our favorite show, True Blood.

During those seven years, and until now, we have posted on the Vault all year round. The spring and summer months were certainly our busiest times providing lots of news to post about until the very last episode of the season aired at the end of August. But we didn’t stop even then because throughout the rest of the year we continued posting about the cast and crew’s latest news and their new projects

Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of the date that the very last episode of True Blood Season 7 aired on August 24, 2014. Since a full year has passed, and after having posted over 10,000 posts, conducted more than 50 interviews, attended countless events about the show and it’s cast and raised nearly $60,000 for charity we now feel it’s time for the site to “go to ground.  Therefore, from this day forward we will no longer be posting regularly. Our plan is to only post news about the show itself that we deem important enough to share. The Vault will remain online to serve as an archive for the fans as their resource for all things True Blood. Our Twitter and Facebook accounts WILL REMAIN ACTIVE!

We want to say thank you to HBO and the awesome cast and crew of True Blood for allowing us to experience with them the wonderful and crazy True Blood ride. We also wish to express our gratitude to all the fans who have supported us throughout the show’s seven seasons by visiting our site, leaving their comments, participating in our True Blood auctions for charity and more.

We will always remember how True Blood changed our lives and brought such joy, not just to us, but to all involved. So finally, with much emotion we say… BYE BYE!

Much love,
Shadaliza and Lynn

    I understand your decision, but will miss you terribly.  The Vault is the first site I go to when I log on each day.  And I visit multiple forums.  I’m glad to know the site will remain as a True Blood archive, and that you will be posting TB news that you deem important.

    Shad and Lynn, thank you for this amazing ride, for your dedication and devotion to True Blood, for your hard work.  Bless you both.  You’ve served the show, cast, crew and production staff, and the fans so very well.

    I can’t bring myself to say “goodbye.”  I’ll settle for “see ya’.”  *hugs*

    Shad and Lynn, the two of you have done a remarkable job not just providing top-notch reporting on our favourite show, but bringing together a community of wonderful fans. You should be proud and feel a great sense of accomplishment. It was a fun ride and I’ve so enjoyed getting to know you all. But, the party’s been over for a year and I agree that going to ground is the right thing to do. Big hugs and best wishes. co

    My heart stopped a bit when I saw the news but I am so respectful of you two ladies and happy to have been a part of this wonderful site. Shad and Lynn – without you my True Blood experience would not have been the same – I thank you profoundly.
    I still remember back in S1 when I found The Vault, it was such a relief to be on a hate free site! I look forward to still being on ASM and one day to work on my forum skills.
    Thank you for your tireless fundraising and advocating on behalf of the True Blood family, you ladies are special! Also, leaving the site open is greatly appreciated as it is a fangtastic source of TB history and information.
    A super job well done, bye bye The Vault!

    You ladies know the reason but  I am very sorry I am so late to post a belated but fond farewell to The Vault and thank you for hosting the number 1 site for all things TrueBlood.  I have so enjoyed participating with other fans to read about and discuss our different points of view. The Vault through your hard work enhanced the experience of the show and all that entails.  If I have not expressed  my appreciation of both Lynn and Shad over the years then shame on me because stopping by the Vault was a daily visit.  

    Cheers for a job well done.
