I have posted my writeup of LeakyCon for the Daily Dot!!!
The Evolution of Harry Potter fandom
I just want to say that I'm so full of EMOTIONS because. this is HP fandom, this is the fandom that very literally changed my life in many, many ways, both in crappy ways and insanely great ways. This is the fandom I will be in til I die. This is the fandom of my heart, this is the fandom that put me on the path to where I am now, ten years later, doing journalism on Harry Potter fandom.
So if you haven't read any of my writing for the Dot yet, please read this article, because so many of you are in this fandom with me, and I know that you will read it and feel, along with me, all the things I felt while writing it.
I love you guys, I love all of fandom always (even when i hate it!), and I am so happy to be on this journey with you.
