Have you ever? Fandom Edition

Being a geek I have a fair share of favourite fandoms, the main ones being Buffy the vampire slayer and Star Wars, but there are others too (like Doctor Who and True Blood). So when I saw that Michelle of A Geek Girls Guide had created a tag specifically for fandoms, I couldn’t resist. Because, to me, my love of fandoms has given me so many wonderful experiences, from meeting my idols at comic conventions, to making life long friendships. So, let’s get started… ‘Have You Ever?’ Tag – Fandom Edition Have you ever made fan art? Yes, I used […]

Whether that’s being able to explore my home town, taking a road trip through the British countryside, or even having a relaxing week at home.
