Hi Swifties!
My name is Imogen. I get a lot of people asking me how I pronounce that. Think Oxygen, but with 'Imo' at the beginning rather than 'Oxy'. Oh, and I should point out that's like 'Im-uh' not 'Im-oh'. I also get a lot of people asking me if I live in London. No, I never have and probably never will. I won't bother saying exactly where I live because it's literally the one county in England that people have never heard of, and if they have, they think it's in Wales, so let's just say I live in Wales. I was born on October 17th, and I'm fifteen years old. I'm a pretty musical person I guess. I play guitar (six and twelve string), piano, guitar-banjo, ukulele and drums. I won't lie, I'm not much of a singer. I'm terrible at drawing and really anything arty. I love maths, but I'm also pretty useless at that. History, Science and English are really my strong points in school. English especially, no matter how much I hate it. I'm absolutely terrified of birds, insects and feathers. I don't think anything but those things really scares me. I love horror movies. I have really insane hair, like bordering on an afro when I don't straighten it. It's terrible. I'm in Year 10 at school (the equivalent to 9th Grade I think) which means I only have one year left. Or I would if I didn't have to go to college or sixth form (or some other form of education until I'm eighteen) afterwards because that's compulsory now.

I'm pretty boring when it comes down to it. I don't have much of a social life, although this is probably down to me hating being outdoors. Team Indoors for the win! I also spend too much time on the Internet, so there's that. I have a few friends; I prefer to keep a close few than a lot that I might not be able to always rely on. Don't get me wrong having a lot of friends would be lovely, it just isn't my thing. I have been lucky enough to meet some amazing people online though. I was friends with a girl from Idaho, USA, and she sent me a friendship bracelet and a pillow pet, both of which are two of my prized possessions. I'm also friends with someone a little closer to home, down in London. The towns we live in are 2 hours and 48 minutes away from each other. I googled that (I google a lot of things). I honestly feel really privileged to be able to say she's one of my friends and by far my best 'online' friend. Besides these two, I have many friends on YouTube and here that are enchanting.

I have tickets to see Taylor on the RED Tour on February 2nd and 4th 2014. I. Cannot. Wait. If you're going to either of those shows please tell me! I'd love to know some other Swifties that will be there. If you managed to get tickets for Taylor's UK shows, then CONGRATULATIONS! If you didn't, I'm sure you'll have plenty of opportunities to see her live in the future.

I've been a fan of Taylor since 2008 - I think September or October - when I heard Love Story. Me and my friends had just discovered YouTube and we were all going through a phase of being completely obsessed with it (I'm still apparently going through that phase). One of my friends came across 'Love Story' and showed me. As soon as I'd heard it and went to look up some of her other songs and found 'Our Song' and 'Teardrops On My Guitar'. That is when I fell in love with her. Then I heard 'You Belong With Me' and 'Fifteen' I think around December 2008. One of my friends actually got Fearless for Christmas that year, and she let me borrow it until I was able to buy my own copy, which was only a week or so later. It was then that I really became a fan. I bought her first album a little while after buying Fearless and realised that, no matter what my dad said, country music was amazing. Over the summer I became aware of the fact that Taylor had become successful with a guitar and a dream, and that I could do that too. Although, singing is not on my future jobs list. I got out an old guitar of my dad's and taught myself how to play 'Our Song' through hours of determination and videos on YouTube. It was November 2009 that I think I would first class myself as a Swiftie. Taylor was on BBC's Children In Need (singing 'Love Story') and I watch it every year. Taylor was the first celebrity I have ever seen actually donate to Children In Need on live television. She donated £13,000. This made me look up to her as an idol. I remember watching her performance, then watching her donate, then running upstairs to my computer to google her. I google pretty much everything… I think I read her Wikipedia page maybe twenty times that night. I became really obsessed. When Speak Now was released I had never been so excited about the release of an album in my life. Then I got to see Taylor on the Speak Now World Tour because, by this point, I had converted my entire family into Taylor fans. Two years later, RED is released. I can't wait for the Red Tour. This was a really long paragraph, so I'm sorry about that.

Taylor opened the door to country music for me. I know a lot of people say she isn't country anymore, but for me that doesn't matter. She introduced me to people like LeAnn Rimes, Brad Paisley, and Carrie Underwood, and many others that I probably would never have heard of if I hadn't discovered Taylor.

I'm not the kind of girl who likes going to parties (like I said, I don't have much of a social life) or wearing makeup or watching soaps on TV. I don't really watch TV a lot, but if I do I'm probably watching either New Girl, 24, CSI:NY (I'm sure I saw Chewbacca running across a beach in one of the episodes) or Nashville. I hate all sports except netball. I don't really like netball either, but at the school I go to you have to do at least one sport, and it's the only one I actually sort of enjoy. I'm much more of a Science-y person. I love making new friends (especially Swifties) so don't be afraid to talk to me - I swear I don't bite!

Finally, I really like hugs, music, friends and Finding Nemo.
Oh, and I can't wait for Finding Dory and my Red concert! I already have signs, outfits etc. planned out. I'm really organised when it comes down to it ;)

    Hey Swifties! I managed (well, my mom managed) to get tickets for the show on the 4th of February in London. I was just wondering if anyone else is going on that day? Good luck to anyone else hoping to get tickets, and congratulations to everyone who already has!! Stay Fearless, TheTSwiftfanforever x

    Hello there. You may or may not know who I am, so allow me to introduce myself. My name is Vince Favetta. You might know me from one of the many blogs I’ve written, or you might have gotten a message from me a while back asking you to participate in what became the “Red Lyric Video”. Today, however, I am coming to you to talk about a brand new project.

    You already know this if you’ve ever been anywhere near my page or read a single word of stuff I’ve written, but four years ago I had a chance encounter with Taylor, that, in many ways, changed my life. After all, it was that very event that brought me to Taylor Connect a while back, and so many people here have become so much a part of my life’s ever-expanding story. But from the moment I created my very own page, I had a dream. I dreamt that one day I would get the chance to look Taylor in the eye and thank her for all she’s done to me. Sure, I could write a letter or just type out a message, but I believe that there are some words that take on a whole new meaning when you look someone in the eye and say them. Things like “Thank you”. Things like “I love you”. Things like “You changed everything”.

    With that goal in mind, I began to create a project that would allow all of the Swifites that had become just as much authors in this story to help write the next chapter. To decide whether or not I should get to see Taylor again and thank her. But as the project expanded, as people came in and brought countless ideas to the table, something dawned on me. The project became about the words that lie at the heart of it all. Thank you. We owe so many people so much, and I wanted to give people a chance to say it. I, for one, have found that more often than not we may think the words, but we never actually say them. We never speak now. We love our parents but we don't thank them for the immeasurable acts they do for us. We love our friends but we never thank them for adding untold beauty to our lives every day. We love Taylor, but we never get to thank her for giving us the means to express our deepest selves.

    And so, ultimately, The Thank You project has been born. In this very first stage, it has been set to an event page of Facebook, the link to which will be on the bottom of this post. On this page, when you click the "join" button, you are saying to your friends and to the world that you WILL speak now. You won't just keep the words in your head, but you WILL say the seemingly simple words that can change a life for good. Then, use the page and do just that. Thank the people you love. Thank your friends and your family, and tell them all the things you feel. And thank Taylor and her music. Thank her for a song, a lyric. Speak now and say how a lyric or an attitude has done so much for you. Then, invite other to do the same. Share the page on your own personal means of social media, be it Facebook, instagram, Twitter or whatever you use. Being a light in the world is a beautiful thing, but sharing that light with others is a miracle.

    So that is what I ask of you. Whether you have read anything I’ve ever written or have never even heard my name until this message, this is what I ask of you. Join the event, leave your Thanks, and Share the page. Join, Thank and Share. Steps as simple as the words themselves, yet potentially just as powerful. Speak now and let those people know that they are appreciated. That they are cherished. That they are loved. Whether it's the friend you see every day or the artist this site is meant for, every single person deserves to hear the words.

    Thank you. As promised, here is the link to the page.

    That's so awesome! Your story is really cool, I like hearing other swifties talk about how they became fans as well as how they got inspired by her. And I became a swiftie on my thirteenth birthday when my mom bought me Taylor's Fearless album. It was my very first album of Taylor's that I've ever owned and after that I just kept listening to her songs. I've heard her older songs before I became a fan but when I turned 13 that's when I officially became a fan (:

    've only been to the nice parts yet, so for me it's beautiful ;) But like every big city, it has parts where i don't want to visit! We went there in April, so it started to get dark around 9 pm I think. I went on the 8:30 pm ride. It wasn't really dark yet, but a lot of buildings already had their lights on and it looked beautiful :) I can't even imagine how stunning it must be when it's complete dark :O
