I know it can get kind of quiet in January - and I've seen posts about this on my Friends List. Now it occurs to me that that has only been amongst my Tolkien fandom friends, and so I have decided to spread the word a little to my friends in other fandoms. And, of course, participate myself.




What's it about - I quote; Every day for the first 15 days of January, we're going to post a fannish challenge. It could be something as simple as reccing fanworks to talking about what you love about fandom. Follow the instructions to complete the challenge. Sometimes you'll be asked to post to your own journal and drop a link in the challenge post. Sometimes you'll just need to say "I did it!" in the comments of the challenge post.

It looks like a fun, low-pressure way to celebrate fandom. The home journal is on Dreamwidth, but you can participate wherever you choose, and only do the days you choose. I can't guarantee to do every day, but I promise to do at least half.

I think so, too. I have seen four or five on my FL so there should be good reading every day, too.

Thank you for reminding me of this. It seems like a nice gentle way to participate in fandom when I don't have anything finished fic-wise to post. I think I might well give it a go.

Hurrah! It does seem to be a gentle way to ease ourselves into the year, doesn't it?

I don't really do fandom, but Happy New Year anyway!

Thank you! I hope you have a happy and healthy 2014.

I tend to not be terrible fan-girly. Mind you I think your series of Tolkien Slept Here articles are a worthy part of the Tolkien Fandom in themselves!
