I'm Here to Talk to You About the Fangirl Initiative

Nick Fury is such a cool dude, am I right?

So, you may be wondering what this random space in the blogosphere is. THIS... *waves wildly* is the product of my intense love for THINGS. Things like TV shows, movies, books, and everything else. Simply put, I'm a fan of storytelling, good characters, and hot actors. (Sorry, I had to admit it.) 

I found an outlet for my fangirlishness on Tumblr for a while, but as great a place as it is, it can be chaotic. I'm also taking this an organized step further, with (semi-)coherent posts, reviews, and doses of fandom. I want to provide a place for fellow fangirls to connect and read about the things they love--and not feel ashamed for doing so. Hopefully, The Fangirl Initiative will do just that. (This is also an outlet for me to write about the things I love too much.)

If you want in, I'd love to have you. Seriously. I'm looking for guest posters, regular columnists, and staff members of all kinds. Things that would be fantastic are:

If you're interested, please send me an email at mountainfireflower[at]gmail[dot]com, or DM me at @skyofthetiger! (There's also a nifty contact form on the sidebar.)

Overall, this is an outlet for me to write about the things I love too much, but I also hope it will be a place for fangirls to connect and feel at home. I'm going to close off with a quote by John Green...

“…because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.” ― John Green

Being a nerd is cool! Let's celebrate it.

What kind of stuff would you like to see on The Fangirl Initiative? Let me know in the comments!
