Exciting times

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen,

Making friends, always good, always pleasurable, even more so when you are able to welcome them into your home…

It gives us the greatest pleasure, and honour, to announce that we have forged a new partnership that will enable us, in concert with our new partner, to bring a broader range of content and reader material to you.

Many of you may already know of our new partner, a man who is, and has been, an integral and invaluable part of the information network in the modern real vampire culture.

Without further ado, we proudly announce that John Reason’s Real Vampire Life E-Zine has joined forces with Gordon Smith’s (a.k.a. Hesperus) CLAVIS.

We are deeply grateful to Gordon for placing his trust and faith in us and we look forward to working more closely with with him, now he is on staff at RVL as a full editor, and to further enhancing the highest levels of integrity and information that we, RVL and CLAVIS, are constantly striving to maintain.

RVL Upgrades

Good evening ladies and gentlemen,

We are aware that many of our readers may have experienced difficulties in connecting to the site over the latter half of this week. Firstly we would like to apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience while we have been instituting some long overdue upgrades to RVL.

We have undergone server upgrades as well as site hosting upgrades but perhaps one of the most important upgrades, in this age of computer vulnerability, has been the installation of an SSL certificate to protect the integrity of information flow to, and from, RVL.

This is all part of our endeavour, and commitment, to maintaining the site in a manner consistent with best practice and bringing it in to line with modern security protocols.

As we grow, and the site expands, we may be upgrading further in the future to meet the demands of running such a resource but, for the moment, we have green lights across the board.

Again, thank you for your patience.
Kind regards and deepest respects,

Editor in Chief

Happy Birthday to US…!

2015, five years since John Reason first opened Real Vampire News, the forerunner of Real Vampire Life and we mark the fifth birthday, on February 22nd of this year, with the clocking up of 100,000 visits since we reconstructed the E-Zine after suffering a complete server failure and crash in 2012.

After rebuilding the site from cached records (yes, we learned a lesson there!) we decided to take the E-Zine in another direction, we decided to tend away from hard news articles which, in the main, were not ‘good’ news and follow a more widespread format that embraced and celebrated the way of life of the modern vampire sub-culture.

We think that we do a pretty good job with the time and resources at our disposal and with 100,000 visits under our belt we believe we can say we are achieving our aims.
Naturally it wouldn’t be anything like this without our readers, so, we would like to thank everyone who has visited, read and come back again for more. You are the people we do this for, you are the reason we keep doing it. Thank you.
We know, full well, that there are people out there who don’t appreciate the work we do at the E-Zine, who don’t think we do a good job and don’t think we achieve anything… that is their prerogative, whatever criticisms they might level, whatever might get thrown at us we don’t mind, if just ONE person walks away with something positive that changes their life for the better then we have SPECTACULARLY achieved our mission, and we’re going to keep working for exactly that.
