Hi, there! Because video games and comics have always gone hand-in-hand for me, I will be adding some linkage to gender issues in gaming. I hope that you will find these interesting, so please leave me some feedback.

Greetings. My name is Maddy. I'm an anthropology student who occasionally finds herself employed, and I love comics. I enjoy political debates, time travel, quesadillas, Simpsons references, walking fast, and arguing with nerds over the internet.
Hello to everyone! I'm Caitlin, known as nevermore999 on livejournal. I'm very into superhero comics (heavy on the DC side of things) and a feminist. Mostly known for my fannishness of Stephanie Brown (though I love a ton of characters, including the Runaways, Wonder Woman, and all the Blue Beetles), I have an LJ called The Adventures of Comic Book (nevermore999.livejournal.com) and I write a column and various articles for Big Shiny Robot (www.bigshinyrobot.com/reviews). I turn 18 in August, and that's also when I start college. I've been following WFA for many months and love the resource it provides, and am very excited to be able to contribute now. I hope to do my part and update frequently.
Hi, I'm Julie aka Manga Maniac, and I'll be tackling the manga side of things. I also run Manga Maniac Cafe (www.mangamaniaccafe.com), and I contribute reviews to MangaCast (www.mangacast.net). I am a former Marvel junkie, and enjoy most genres of comics. I make my living as a bean counter for a computer company, which is a never ending temptation, because I am also addicted to tech gadgets. I like video games, too, so you can bet that I'll occasionally have some video game linkage. Since I am older than dirt, I'll keep that bit of information a secret, but I'm pretty confident that with my spiffy track shoes I can keep up with the younger staff.
Hey all, I'm Laurel aka PixieCorpse, a creative writer, pop culture scholar and feminist. I'm another fan of DC superheroes, particularly Wondy, but I also like indie comics/comix and webcomics. Other interests that might overlap with WFA include animation and cult movies, comic strips and book illustration. I teach English courses as adjunct faculty and tutor football players for my local university. I am old enough to remember being the only chick in the comics shop. I've read WFA almost since its inception and am honored to be involved with such a kick-ass project.
On with the fangirlery!

We'll be around. Be nice to the new crew. --R.

Hello, Readers of When Fangirls Attack.
Those of you who still follow this linkblog may have noticed a sharp decline in the quality and quantity of posting here on WFA. Anna's always great manga posts are the notable exception, but sadly, she can't carry the weight for all of us.
The truth is that real life got in the way and got in the way hard, and we've come to some unpleasant truths. There's no way we can keep this linkblog going.
We're sentimental types though, and we like to think that WFA serves a purpose in the fan community. We'd like to see it continue and regain some of the relevance it had previously.
That's why I'm posting. We're looking for someone/some people who are interested in taking over WFA.
Please note that if you are interested and do agree to take on WFA, you would have carte blanche over the blog. Ragnell and I have no interest in being overseers or managers. If you take over WFA, you're taking it over completely. Which means you would be free to make any changes to our policies, scope, subject matter that you feel is necessary or desirable.
If you're interested, please message Ragnell at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
