This page is designed, and in place, to provide short bulletins on what’s going on within, and around, RVL International. We believe it will be easier to keep up with than having to work through a list of editorials and interviews from a Twitter feed or RSS feed.
Thanks to all our readers the world over for making this, if not the biggest, certainly one of the best.
December 9th, 2018
Good morning to our readers, wherever you are,
We hope you well?
It’s been a while since we published any solid site news about RVL and we thought, in light of our development and expansion, that it would be a good time to rectify that.
As you may have noticed the official name of our humble little E-Zine has changed from Real Vampire Life – RVL, to Real Vampire Life International, this is due to our steady growth in the global Vampire culture.
We are currently received in 147 countries around the globe which is 75.38% of the world. Our top five viewing countries are, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada and Australia.
We are proud of that fact and we work to maintain, or grow, that audience diligently.
The other thing you may have noticed is certain changes in our site header links. All of our research materials, conducted by RVLI or contributed, are being gathered under a new resource section named The Reason Learning Foundation. This is a long-time dream of our founder that aims to provide free research materials and accumulated projects for reference by our readers and followers.
The other thing you may have noticed is that our “focus” over the last five years has shifted from purely domestic review and news to a wider international scope. This reflects the global nature of the modern living Vampire culture and serves to remind us that we are part of a global community.
The other item worth mentioning is that RVL International has, recently, become a major partner in the development of the Greater Chicagoland Vampire Coalition. Although our owner resides in Texas our operational headquarters, if you like, is in North Central Illinois and this makes it close to home and heart to follow and assist, in practical ways, the establishment and success of the first Chicagoland cooperative in a location that has not, to date, been renowned as a “hotbed” of modern Vampire culture in the United States.
In all, although in “appreciating” modern vampire culture one sometimes has to look at the not so nice things we always strive to, as our site header says, celebrate the modern Vampire culture in all its subtle shades, colours and nuances.

4/16/2018 In news just to hand… Le Rune di Steinar
“Le Rune di Steinar” nasce da una passione illimitata per quanto riguardano gli argomenti del mondo antico, tra qui la civiltà vichinga, celtica e longobarda. Io personalmente dal 2011 pratico rievocazione storica e scherma vichinga e pre-trattistica, nonchè studio approfonditamente anche gli argomenti sopracitati. Mi occupo di realizzare su richiesta manufatti in legno con l’ausilio dell’antica arte della pirografia.

- 1/19/2018 Google Analytics has decided, in their infinite wisdom (???) that it will append our website on Google Search with the annotation, “Site may be hacked”, all because someone slipped a piggyback URL for Viagra sales onto it… NEWS FLASH – WE HAVEN’T BEEN HACKED. Both our server and our webhost confirm that our site security and integrity is fine.We are in process of having our listing removed from Google Search and making it impossible for Googlebot to crawl all over us.We would recommend that you look at the following search engines instead;
Ask.com, Bing, DuckDuckGo and Bloglines.We are currently trialling Duck Duck Go and an email host in Germany since, after much reading, their privacy protection laws seem much better than anything here. We’ll let you know how that goes.We are also trialling Opera as a preferred web portal… we’ll get back with ya on that too.Copyright RVL 2018NB: Where used, quoted portions of other works are reproduced by permission, or under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, wherein allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.This article may be linked to but may not be copied or reproduced, nor redistributed in any manner, including electronic without the express permission of the copyright owners.
