This Is Why Year of the Fangirl Is Awesome – Vloggers and Bloggers

One of the goals of Her Universe’s Year of the Fangirl is to celebrate our community. In some ways, it is responsible for Teresa Delgado and I meeting and eventually teaming up on Fangirls Going Rogue. You can listen to us talk with Ashley Eckstein about it in our December 2013 episode. Teresa recently wrote a moving blog post at Jedi News about her growing circle of fandom friends.

I also had the pleasure of nominating vlogger Amanda Jean for Fangirl of the Day. It was a no-brainer after watching her YouTube video with her top four Han Solo moments. Follow Amanda Jean on Twitter.

I met Fangirl of the Day Johnamarie at New York Comic Con while we were both waiting to say hello to Ashley Eckstein. She wrote a lovely piece “Fangirling over Fangirls” spotlighting Her Universe, FANgirl Blog, Legion of Leia, and GeekGirlCon. Johnamarie attended Book Expo America this weekend and provided a first look at Ezra’s Journal, a tie-in to Star Wars Rebels. (via Rebels Report)

Another Fangirl of the Day, Sarah Woloski, also known as Jedi Tink, attended Star Wars Weekends Week 2. Her podcast Skywalking Through Neverland has posted their adventures, including an interview with Jeremy Bulloch. Now everyone can experience the magic. So give it a listen!

You can still submit your favorite fangirl at Her Universe. Be sure to check out our Fangirls Around the Web series, where we compile the recent Fangirls of the Day in one place.
