You Are Here ⭐

 

Hey, you!

I’m calling you you until we get better acquainted. While we do, let me tell you about the kind of stuff you’re going to run into while you’re in my neck of the woods:

Right here is the entryway. It’s where I try to make sure my grammar is correct and that my writing style doesn’t make you immediately open a new tab and go to Buzzfeed. Over there is where I scream bloody murder when a new TV trailer is released. This is my bookshelf – a little dusty at times, but it’s been well-loved. I watch Netflix over in that corner, and all my snacks are on the table.

I love Jesus, I love storytelling, I love food and the outdoors, and I am a firm believer that the things you love are the best when they are shared. That’s what this blog is for, and it’s why I’m here.

However unique your experiences, challenges, and interests, we’re all here. Not here on this blog, not here on the internet – here. Each of us get to decide how we react to that fact. Are you interested in being here? Thrilled? Furious? Just content? Whatever it is, I notice you’ve managed to stick around.

I’m happy you’re here.

🌞

Note: Just Blank to Be Here was formerly Freak of Fandom at freakoffandom.wordpress.com. I’d been wanting to change the name for a while to reflect the fact that no matter how much I fangirl over new Marvel trailers, tiny Star Wars figurines, and live theatre, the fandom umbrella does not quite cover everything I hope I am.

    Hello darling! I know you were nominated by Geeky Girl for this award, but I’m also giving you the Super Sweet Blogging Award! Keep calm and fangirl on!

    Here’s the post: http://thethousandlives.wordpress.com/2013/07/27/super-sweet-blogging-award/

    Hi. So, I know my blog has absolutely nothing to do with your blog but that is the nature of such odd internet interactions. Actually Pinterest is where I lazily fangirl most of the time. It’s true. Actually I’m a huge fandom-girl (fandomy-girl?), but I tend to live vicariously through other braver internet people/fanpeople (let’s not be sexist here). I just wanted to say — as you received a weird WP follow from a diabetes blog — you my new friend/favourite blogger are a rare talent, an amazing writer (seriously), and a unique fan who has not resorted living out their squealing fantasies on tumblr. I salute you. And follow you. And probably pin you. A lot.

      Thank you so much, Sara!
      You have no idea how much you just made my day. It is lovely to meet such a sweetheart of a fellow fanperson! I hope you have a fantastic day full of sunshine and singing bunny rabbits. Keep pinning, friend! 🙂

    (this is still whovian99, I changed my username) How in the world did you come up with your blog name? Also, do you have any tips for beginning bloggers?

    • Emory August 5, 2013 at 10:04 pm #

      My blog name.
      Man.
      That is the least inspiring story in the history of blogging:
      Basically, I really wanted it to incorporate two words that began with the same letter, and my first choice was taken. So Freak of Fandom happened!
      And blogging tips! Well, I haven’t been doing this for too long, but I guess I would say to set goals for yourself (post per week, post every other day, etc.), play nice with other bloggers (oh look, you nailed that already), and write what you would like to read!
      Also, last, but not least, if you start a blog, send me a link so I can follow it. 🙂
