A year plus for Redhead Fangirl
MY '53' GIVEAWAY- To celebrate 53 weeks of comic blogging, I have 2 comics I'll send to one lucky person: Powers #11 signed by Michael Oeming and She-Hulk 8 signed by Dan Slott.
EMAIL at email@example.com , subject line "53", and tell me your favorite redhead character in comics.
I'm pretty happy after one year of blogging about comics, art, writing, libraries, and redheads. I've gone through the normal phases bloggers do, but mostly it's been positive. While I don't get the number of comments some of the big blogs get, I think I have a good little niche on being a fangirl/librarian. Sitemeter says I've gotten about 17,000 visits in one year.
I do think that there are many more worthy blogs that deserve your times-
try the Comic Blog Legion, another thing I created in this year of blogging. Wizard has a blog now, and between Newsarama and that, I'm afraid the drain on small "indie" blogs will be tough.
Congrats to Gordon from Blog This, Pal on two years of blogging! In just this year, I've seen Love Manga and The Comics Asylum end their runs.
The Redhead Fangirl blog blasts off! My very first post was about my very first comicon- Wizard Philly, 2005. And my first comment was from superstar artist Rags Morales, so I was off to a rip-roaring start.
That was a huge con month- met Ethan Van Sciver, Kubert brothers, Rags and in NY, I met Brian K. Vaughan, Tony Harris, Michael Bair.
Now I get really crazy and co-run my own comicon! The first MidJersey Comicon has a decent turnout, and I get to meet Dan Slott! The artists and dealers are all happy, and we broke even.
The Luna Brothers print my letter in Girls!

And coming soon- I get immortalized in an actual comic book- in a crowd scene, but by a very talented and respected artist. With a horror twist!
Thank you, dear readers. Email me and I'll feel validated...
