Buddies have been in existence since February of 1999, and continues
to grow, now with over 600 members! We started off with but
a few avid fans of Bettie in our midst, as of March 2003.
the Buddies were first formed, we had Theme Nights. Theme Nights
were a fun way of getting together on-line and having a party
- all in the name of Bettie Page. Our memorable Theme Nights
included the Beach Blanket Bingo Party and the Fetish Night
Party. When the Buddies grew in numbers to near 100, it became
impossible to continue the Theme Nights as there were too many
different time scheduling problems occuring.
For a trip down 'memory lane', check out the section we dedicated
to our most enjoyable (and first!) Theme Night - the Beach
Blanket Bingo Theme Night.
Buddies is made up of an ecclectic mix of people, who have all
joined this community to share their love of the 1950s pinup
queen Bettie Page. We share photos, articles, merchandise info,
personal testimonies of Bettie adoration, and more. Many of
the Buddies have formed friendships, which is a very nice bonus!
basic question you might be asking yourself is, "what is
a mailing list?". A mailing list, or email group, is a
group of people with common interests; in our case Bettie Page.
An email group is given one email address to which all members
send & reply messages to. Everyone who has joined the email
group receives those emails. In our case, it's over 600 people
who receive and have the opportunity to reply to these emails.
The Bettie Buddies don't have many 'rules and regulations',
but there are a few guidelines that sometimes need to be brought
into play (by use of a whip if necessary *wink*).
Check out these Buddie Guidelines
for more info on this, and how the mailing list works.
