Season 3 of the Vampire Diaries begins on September 15th on the CW 8/7c(8:00pm Eastern Time and 7:00pm Central Time USA).
Hello fellow TVD fans!We are less than a week away from episode 3x01 titled "The Birthday"and I know that the excitement is too much to handle.Lets recap a little bit ,shall we?

Waaaaaay back in May "As I Lay Dying"was one of the most anticipated episodes of season 2 and there is a reason why!Actually scrap that...There were many reasons!
1.The Ripaaaaah! - Stefan was responsible for Damon becoming a vampire in 1864 so when he found out that his brother was bitten oleh a werewolf he felt obligated to find a cure.Even if [To quote Katherine Pierce in 2x22]he had to sacrifice everything including Elena to save his bro.In the penultimate scene we see how Stefan was fighting the Rippah inside of him and in the end he gave in.
2.The Delena ciuman ❤- need to say more?
3.Jeremy and his dead girlfriends.To keep it short - Jeremy died ,he was brought back to life and now he could audition on linkthe remake.That last scene in the S2F was so shocking that I even had to cari for my jaw on the floor.When I first saw the back of Vicky , I thought it was Katherine.But then when they showed her infront I was like "What.the.hell's going on?"Then Jeremy went downstairs with Vicky following silently in the back (spooky)and he saw Anna , my facial expression was link

After such a finale I was surprised that it only got like 2 and something million tampilan live.And yes I am aware that TVD was up against American Idol but there are other reasons.Many residents in the USA don't realy know when TVD airs so they watch it on the Internet and others tend to DVR the tampil and then later watch it.

But are ratings even important?
Yes, they are really important.They are the reason whether TVD gets renewed atau cancelled , whether the CW will increase the tampil budget, whether Elena will wear the same blue sweater all season ,whether we receive good edited atau bad edited episodes , whether we get good actors(guest starring actors atau even regulars) ,whether we get amazingly decorated sets,whether we get good effects on an episode and so on.As anda can see ratings are lebih important than they seem.And if anda don't believe me check Ian Somerhalder's tweets from April , 7th saying that watching the tampil live will secure its future.

But TVD is the number one rated tampil on the CW at this moment.
True , but compared to the ratings we had at the begining of season 2 and the whole season 1 we won't be soon (Shows like Ringer and The Secret lingkaran have the potential of getting us of the throne)+The higher the ratings, the better we get =)
Ok.So how do we help in getting lebih viewers?

1.WATCH THE tampil LIVE!DON'T DVR IT AND THEN WATCH LATER. anda can DVR the tampil but watch it live! Please if anda have the chance - do it.

2.I heard that the CW channel is rare in the USA.You can watch it online when it's airing.Here is a link link (Thanks Jendelena again for the link ^^)[b]

[b]Note: The CW is supposed to be offline.It comes online an jam before TVD airs atau it even comes online at 8pm .(Could anda guys provide me with lebih link for online watching in the comments? Thanks in advance =] )

3.Promotion.The CW can make 10000 promos but the truth is that fan have a big part in making the tampil famous.No wonder everytime there is an award tampil the actors say that they wont be here if it wasn't for us.If anda follow some of teh advices bellow it might help TVD get lebih fan = lebih views:

- Tell your friends that TVD is a great tampil and it deserves a shot =)

- link TVD on Facebook.It may not seem important but when your fb friends chech your profil they will see that anda "like" TVD and they may give it a chance.

- Give jawaban to people who ask when does TVD air.Believe you'll be surprised how many residents in the USA don't know when TVD airs and on what channel airs.

- Favouriting TVD video on youtube also helps.Because late they appear on the front youtube page of your yt friends and subscribers.

- Talking about TVD on twitter ,tumblr ,myspace and all other social networks helps =)

- For twitter users: I think fan will be trending #TVDS3 on Thursday (15th).Maybe anda could help =)

- anda can simply post this artikel on TVD fan sites,your twitter ,fb,tubmlr etc so that other fan could read it 2 =)

Why should I watch episode 1 of Season 3?

Well if the ratings aren't a good reason for anda then membaca this link(spoiler alert for those who don't want to be spoiled) of the episode will help you.Or watching link amazing promo atau link mind blowing one.The episode will also feature Elena's birtday,The Rippah going on a murder spree with Klaus,lots of Delena scenes,Naked Damon,Forwood(Warning:You gotta take a cold mandi, shower after seeing them in the promo),Catt,Alaric (the chunky monkey's back),Jeremy dealing with Anna and Vicky ,lots of blood and hotness,Bonnie or/and Katherine (hopefully!) and ofcourse I haven't forgotten anda Stelena fans.Even though I know some of anda want to boycott the tampil because of the many DE scenes coming up (which I don't mind lol) As a DE fan I think that Julie and Kevin will feature one atau atleast 2 good scenes for you!(Otherwise how do anda explain that pic from the set?) =)And if thats not enough, from the gathered info I have from interviews, Elena is not giving up on Stefan just yet.She will have him on her mind during her Birthday for sure.

Thank anda soo much for reading!I really hope this interview had some kinda of an impact on you.And I hope that I made the people who DVR the tampil to watch it live and that I made others promote the tampil ! Thank you!Feel free to post this artikel anywhere. (Credit me please )

Note:This is the first time I have EVER written an artikel so please don't be so hard on me.
