After too many years of obsessively consuming everything related to pop culture, too many 3 hour conversations about only TV, too many 500+ comment threads on Facebook arguing over one show, and too many dinner conversations that never strayed from all things pop culture, two cousins started a blogging adventure that would both worry their mothers and confuse their grandparents.
Thus, Fangirly was born. A safe haven for them to pour out their hearts about the things that really matter… to them.
Who are we?
Ellen – I live in Los Angeles and I’m attempting (with moderate success) to break into show biz. I love to watch TV and movies, read about TV and movies, and write about TV and movies. I’m sure you are so shocked based on the content of this blog. I guess I enjoy other things, too. Baking, spending time with my friends and family, going to the beach, and shopping. But they seem a little irrelevant for this forum. Basically, I love taking an activity that most people see as solitary – watching movies and TV – and making it social. I love hearing different opinions on the shows I love and then arguing my (right) opinion on the shows I love. The other thing I love to do is laugh, which is why I dragged Whitney into this crazy venture with me, because nobody makes me laugh harder than Whitney.
Whitney – When I’m not spending way too much time watching TV, or having cryptic TV-themed Facebook conversations with my cousin Ellen, I study Nursing at what shall remain an unspecified university in Utah. (Hint: it’s probably not a school you’ve ever heard of). I, like Ellen, was hooked at a very tender age on all things pop culture. My other interests include Chemistry, reading, and musical theater (as a spectator, not a participant). Please note that all my hobbies fall somewhere on the Nerd Spectrum. I would never admit this to her face, but I’ve looked up to Ellen since we were kids, so I jumped at the chance to write this blog with her. I hope you readers find all this nonsense as interesting as we do.
