My Fandom


My fandom is you the blogger, the person who expresses yourself from the heart and soul. You are the heart of this thing called blogging. I care more about real living people than celebrities or fictional characters. You, my friends, are more exciting and interesting than you think.


Watching Through Others


Sometimes the best way to watch a TV program is through the eyes of people who actually watch a program you don’t. Case in point “The Bachelor” which I have only watched one season but I can’t imagine it being as horrible as this latest season that has finished. Some of the comments from friends have been harsh, probably because it was warranted. This Juan Pablo guy was not the greatest choice and he came across as a jerk.

The reactions of people who do watch a show are sometimes more entertaining than me just watching it myself. Being emotionally invested in any show can spur on some great conversation.

I tried “The Walking Dead” but I couldn’t get past the gore of it all. “Game of Thrones” was interesting to read about when there was a blood bath at the end of last season. “The Following” has its own devout fan base too and I know a fellow blogger who loves it. “Supernatural” is a show that is lived out by some in real life I am convinced.

Watching a live blog or live tweet about a show can be a great way to share the experience of a show with others. Of course the best way is dialogue with someone in the same room as you. However some folks have interesting comments.

Of course there are shows I watch that some people don’t get and that is OK. We all have unique personalities that attract us to things that are different from the rest. That’s why watching through others is so much fun.
