A Fandom Blogger

I started this blog as a class assignment. It has been wonderful blogging about the things I love, TV and fan-girling. Throughout my experience I, like many great writers experienced the ups and downs of of what to write and if it was any good. I have had great ideas only to realize that they were worthless and did not make any sense. I have felt inspired and typed away at my computer only to realize the whole thing was one run-on sentence. In addition, even though I loved everything I have blogged about, I learned even more about it.  Now, I had to go into depth about the things I loved and write about why I loved them and so on.

I have also learned blogging is hard. The final product is fun to look at and tell your friends about but it is hard work. Extremely hard. Like, pull-out-your-hair hard. Kudos to all the bloggers out there. Seriously, y’all are amazing.

One of the things we had to do was learn to promote ourselves using social media. Honestly, social media works. However, it has to be done in the right way. I can’t upload something to Instagram and upload that same something to Twitter and expect the same response or any response. Also, while Twitter and Instagram have far more users than Facebook and Pinterest, I had more foot traffic come from the latter. Crazy, I know. But true. What also helped up my viewers was a fellow blogger, AgzyM , who linked my blog to hers, which I fully appreciate. You rock!

And, so ends my blogging project, but not my blogging career.

Fangirling

So what is fangirling exactly?

We hear this word a lot through out this blog. Okay, we read this word a lot. It’s pretty much the premise for this blog.

Well, fangirling is an assortment of things. It’s an inside joke in the form of a t-shirt that simply says, SHER-Locked. It’s a giddy school girl scream when we see an actor in two different fandom-verses (Benedict, I’m talking to you). It’s calling in sick to re-watch the entire series in anticipation for it’s premiere. It is madness and passion and an incredible love for something. Whether it’s Doctor Who or the NBA playoffs, (That’s a thing right?) we have all fangirled at one time or another.

Fangirling. It’s a thing. A wonderful thing.

 

 

Reasons to start watching Agents of SHIELD

Just like any show, blogs sometimes may experience a hiatus. I am so sorry for that but now were back and better than ever!

It is very hard to make that big switch from giant blockbuster movie franchise to some time slot on ABC.  I, like many other viewers, was very weary about how this show would play out. I did not want to get my hopes up in case it might suck, or get too attached in case it was canceled. But somehow, someway, Joss Whedon and all involved in the making of this show, just did something right.

From the beginning pilot, I have kept up with this show and it just keeps on getting better. I find myself putting down my cell phone and focusing all my brain power on what is happening on the screen. The action is wonderful and the actors just are awesome and Clark Gregg, well, he is just gold.

So, in case you are wondering if this show is worth it, here are my reasons that you should.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

While I may never had been an X-men fan in the past, when the movie X-men first class came out, I was on that like white on rice. Of course it helps that I love prequels and James McAvoy, but that movie gave me chills. X-men first class tells the tale of how everything began. Why Magneto and Professor X hate each other and it tells of the original split between the two groups. Now, X-men: Days of future past are bringing the original cast and the younger version of characters together as the story is set in the two different time periods. How can that not be amazing?
