Like Michael Corleone, Home Shopping Queen Gets Pulled Back In To Blog

March 31, 2010

Before there was The Homeshoppingista, there was the Home Shopping Queen. She’s back.

Before we launched our blog in November, we searched the Internet for any other blogs covering the home shopping industry, its gossip and the business of electronic retailing.

The only one we found was the Home Shopping Queen, aka Queen Bea. It was smart, insidery and nicely written. But the Queen blogger had not posted since June, we think it was, when her grandmother passed away.

But March 23, she was back in action, and has been posting ever since. She also explained her absence.

“I decided after my grandmother died to just take a break from blogging and the home shopping universe in general,” Home Shopping Queen wrote. “I stopped checking my email, never looked at the blog, and even stopped watching all the home shopping channels (gasp!) It was a sudden and clean break from everything ‘Queen Bea.'”

But the addiction to home shopping is like the Mob. As Michael Corleone says in “The Godfather: Part III,” “Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in.”

The Homeshoppingista and the Home Shopping Queen have vastly different writing styles and approaches. We hope QVC, HSN and ShopNBC fans will check us both out each day.
