I haven’t updated this blog in years. I haven’t had the time and energy to keep up with all my old interests. I haven’t lost my passion for science fiction and fantasy, or Legend of the Seeker, but the fan movement gradually faded away.
We all knew that would happen. But 10 years ago I promised someone I would never give up this blog. What I didn’t expect to happen was to hear about the sad news of Terry Goodkind’s passing on September 17, 2020. His family did not reveal the cause of death and we don’t need to know. This has been a terrible, sad year.
Terry was engaged with his fans. His Sword of Truth novels were inventive and daring. Some fans of the books hated Legend of the Seeker because the saga had been toned down for television. I understand why purists feel so passionately about these things, but a TV adaptation doesn’t change one word in the published books.

So you’ve been staying up late every night for the past two weeks, Tweeting and voting your Seeking heart out, right?
And you’ve mailed, emailed, called, voted, and busted yourself on every network and TV station, right?
Have you done everything that you as a fan can do? … To be honest, I have no idea. But remember that none of us can do everything. Still, here is a list of activities to choose from that may help ABC Studios find a way to renew Legend of the Seeker for a third season. And remember, the show has NOT yet been cancelled despite what you may have read prior to now.
If you have a blog on WordPress.com, use “Legend of the Seeker” and “Save The Seeker” and “Save Our Seeker” in tags for your posts (see this article for detail).
Any Web content you create (blog post, comment on a blog or forum, etc.) be sure to mention ABC Studios and Disney in case they are scanning the Internet for daily mentions (many companies now do this).
I’ve been looking at the trending topics and I think the Seeker fans are approaching the trending topic goal from the wrong direction. The top posts in each trending topic are RETWEETED. Seeker fans are simply asking each other to copy and paste the hash tags. I don’t think that’s going to work.
We need to pick a couple of great Tweets and just retweet them.
Here is a good one:
RT @confessed4life Hash tag mission to save the show : Hash tags #saveourseeker #legendoftheseeker #lots #savetheseeker #Seeker
NOTE: Some people are asking you NOT to retweet. Their intentions are good but their methods are not. These messages MUST be retweeted in order to become trending topics.
