awesome web design, but their writing style is clear and easily understandable as well as having
sources they pulled information from at the end of their posts . Geekscape also provides

variety of fandoms in an easy to read way, I will be able to use their information to my benefit

The Fandom News was created by 4 artists who love all things fandom, Adam Spunberk, Kait
Silva, Natasha Baucas, and Sam Cushion. The Fandom News offers a fandom image of the
day, which I will share occasionally since part of the goal of this blog is sharing fan artwork.
They also have a fandom calendar which shows what events are coming up throughout many
many fandoms like book releases, movie releases, character birthdays, and anniversaries. I may
point out certain events that are coming upon the calendar.
While hypable may not be seen as the most reliable site because it lets fans share news with
each other as well as having legitimate authors, it stays up to date on all sorts of happening
because of the breadth of the writers posting. The most popular thing Hypable does is offer
recaps of episodes of all sorts. Hypable also offers quizzes to get to know characters, shows,
and movies. They tell of controversy affecting shows like The Biggest Loser, and movies too.

offers a fans viewpoint, and posts new things like trailers, show updates, and such. Freak of
Fandom offers reviews and ideas as well in her “breakdown”. Unique to her is the breakdowns

Sherlock to come this Christmas, or the season 8 premiere of Doctor Who; both Sherlock and
Doctor Who have had their latest episodes evaluated by Freak of Fandom.

About: “Fandom: A collected group of individuals who are united in their shared interest in a
topic, event, subject matter. Unfortunately when a large group of similar minded people are
brought together, the risk that the negative action of a single individual in this group being
used as an example for the rest is a very high possibility. Basically the idea is that one bad
apple spoils the bunch is used quite a bit in modern media. This is the cancer killing your
fandom, individuals who give the rest of us fans a bad name.Through popular media, fans or
geeks/nerds/dorks are shown in a negative light the majority of the time. We are portrayed
as unwashed, antisocial, and lazy beings who are nothing but a drain on society. Derogatory
expressions such as neck beard and basement dweller are used to describe fans, thinking we
are somehow inferior just because we are passionate about the different media and games we
love so dear. This is simple not the case at all.This blog was created to try and to point out the
negative behaviors as they appear in the news and try to see what can be done to correct such
actions. There also be mentions of when there are actual positive moments where fans are
doing great work for the fan communities and the world at large.”
