Of course her fans should post. As jcar said, there are some nutjobs out there that are what we call "rabid fanbases." These are people like Terry who are obsessed with characters/actors/etc. These are also people who get way too involved in the show, almost as if the show is real life to them and they are living in that reality. They want the show to be about the people they like and no one else. Things like that. Basically, fans that have no life and pick things apart to death classify too. It's not really anyone on the DR. There is a difference between a fanbase and a rabid one and the rabid ones are the ones that tend to ruin things for everybody by asking the same things over and over and by also acting like they are entitled to things and by acting like what they want should be the end all to be all and screw all the other fans.

I like it. I hope more do it. It allows for more interaction. The only issue is that it's going to be bombarded with RABID fanbase propaganda and it seems like so many actors and actresses start these but don't post for months on end. Look at James Scott. He started his in I think May or something and he didn't post again until September. MBE just started one a few weeks ago and nothing since then. I understand they are busy but if you can't post regularly, why do it? Alison Sweeney and Rachel Melvin have posted frequently in theirs alot (of course theirs were on their own site). I just hope they actively participate and not just post here and there.
I do think this is cute though. I love the "doctor is in" line and it seems like she is going to actively use her blog. I look forward to it. She looks great in that picture too.
I don't know who introduced the term "RABID", but I hate it. Deidre has so many fans - should her fans not comment on her blog? And "propaganda"? That's a little heavy. I'm not really sure what point you're trying to make.
(And on the topic of other blogs, James Scott just posted a puppy name update, lol.)
So the point I was making had to do with people filling her blog with things Terry would post or with the same questions over and over like "When will Marlena get with John?" and so on. I don't mind the question being asked but you don't want to see 500+ people ask it. That is what I mean.
