1st Anniversary/ My Favourite Posts

Happy anniversary to me!

Hi everyone!  It was one year ago (April 11th to be exact) that I did my first post for this blog.  I’ve covered a fair bit of ground since then, from opinions and interviews, to poetry and reblogs.

To celebrate, I would like to share a few of my favourite posts.  These are not necessarily my most popular, but ones that I particularly enjoyed putting together.  Check them out!

Conventions:  Cosplay – as a regular attendee of Fan Expo Canada, I used this event to do a series of posts on various aspects of a typical convention.  One of my favourites was covering cosplay.  It is one of the most expressive forms of fandom that you will ever see, and the talent and originality of the costumes are always one of the highlights of any convention.

Convention Artist Interviews – These were just fun.  Liz Parkes, Ken Wheaton and Alex Chung gave me a chance to try out my interviewer skills and each offered a unique glimpse into the world of the convention artist.

The Perfect Writer’s Block – This was my first WRITER post and the how I met some of my online writing friends.  It was also my first chance to work my way back to becoming a writer.

Stephen King, Madness and the Monster – This was one of those posts that just HAPPENED.  I came across King’s essay for Playboy and it just evolved from there.

W.I.G.’s Top 20 Awesome Canadian Sci-Fi Film Stars – I will never underestimate the time it takes to do a list like this EVER AGAIN….but it was fun!  I even did a second one.

Space Oddities-08.21.2016: TNO Niku – My first Space Oddities post.  This is still one of  the coolest articles that I have come across.  Unfortunately there have been changes to the site of the second article and it can no longer be viewed.

What Is Mom Guilt Teaching Our Kids? – It’s okay to be a parent who isn’t perfect.

The Writers’ Party – Sometimes you just need a little motivation from some people who know a thing or two about the craft.

A Writer’s Conversation with Her Madness  – To keep sane, you need to go a little mad.

My own little writing quotes – For those times that you just need a boost.

Space Oddities-10.30.2016: ISS tour and Artificial Meteors – The International  Space Station and meteors on demand.  How cool is this!!!

I have really enjoyed working on this blog and it was great to stroll down memory lane.   🙂

Feel free to comment and share any posts of mine that you have enjoyed!

Thanks for everything guys!!!   🙂  🙂 🙂

Julie’s Greenroom on Netflix

The magic of Julie Andrews and Jim Henson Productions is coming to Netflix!

Mark your calendars for March 17th!

Julie Andrews is coming to Netflix with an incredible pre-school program that will be teaching children about the arts.  Music, comedy, acting, dance and some famous faces will be joining her.

I am so excited to see this show, even if I may be a few years older than the target demographic.  😉

The official announcement was back in June and obviously I was under a rock somewhere and missed it.  😉

Check out the these two YouTube trailers and click the IMDB link for more information.

I’ve mentioned geekxgirls.com before when I posted about some great Christmas ideas, but I haven’t mentioned just how terrific their site is.  I follow their Facebook page  and they are always post really cool stuff.  Cosplay photo shoots, artwork, articles, interviews and geeky toys and gifts are just some of the great things that you will find here.  Yesterday, a great post about a mom who created superhero dolls for her daughter came up, as well as a very geeky Valentine’s gift idea.  Check out the articles and incredible cosplay photos below as well as the rest of their site for more awesomeness!
