My Stories

Every Friday night I try to post another term of Soap Opera Jargon. Find more on the soap opera jargon page.

My Stories aka The Stories – To some extent “my stories” is just another synonym for soap operas, but there is more to how the phrases are typically used. Soap fans usually don’t watch every soap. “My stories” are the soap operas that are the particular soaps that are your main focus, most often the ones that were passed down in your family or the ones you’ve watched from the first episode. These are the soap towns where we feel we are part of the community. The characters from these shows are the ones we talk about as if they were relatives. For example, I’ve watched Passions, Days of Our Lives, and General Hospital, but they will never be my stories the way Guiding Light and As the World Turns are.

Robansuefarm is the handle of one of Manny and Guiding Light‘s biggest fans following in her family’s footsteps of Guiding Light fandom since 1939. This blog is an effort to make it easy to find Guiding Light and especially Manny online. Check back here for her blog, find fanfic previews and fake WSPR newscasts on her YouTube, find podcasts that look back to old shows and audios of her fanfics on Blog Talk Radio, and finally follow her on Twitter and Facebook.
