Congratulations to Dunc – Her Universe Fangirl of the Day!

Year of the fangirlSince we know that this embarrasses her beyond belief, I’m going to jump on here to say congratulations to Club Jade’s own Dunc for being selected as a Her Universe Fangirl of the Day!

My favorite part of the write-up:

What is her favorite quote or personal motto?

“In space, no one can hear you LOL.”

Club Jade knows who has made this site great, and that’s Dunc. Thanks for all you do setting the example for how women can navigate fandom with fun and class (and snark).

Don’t forget to check out the other Fangirls: Grace, a Star Wars and Doctor Who fan and blogger, who is one of the founders of the Lakehouse Forums, was the first Fangirl of the Day.

And leading into the Fangirl of the Day posts have been some introductions of the contributing team: Lillian Skye, Erin Kelahan, Victoria Schmidt, Amy Ratcliffe, and Tricia Barr.

Grace and Lillian might be familiar faces to Her Universe fans on our blog, since they were in the HU fan photoshoot at Celebration last year. Keep watching the Fangirl of the Day blog for more stories from the fandom community!

Her Universe to offer advice column, ‘Ask Ellen’

Ellen ConnellAs part of their Year of the Fangirl initiative, Her Universe is launching an advice column.

The monthly column Ask Ellen will be headlined by Ellen Connell, formerly of Lucasfilm Animation and currently working towards becoming a licensed psychologist. She holds a Psy.D in Clinical Psychology and works as a psychotherapist.

“I’m really excited to work with Ashley and the Her Universe community through the ‘Ask Ellen’ column,” Connell said in a statement. “I hope to offer support to girls who are struggling to feel good about themselves. I’m glad Her Universe provides a community for fangirls, and I look forward to contributing to it in any way I can.”

The column is already accepting questions, and don’t forget to throw your name (or someone else’s) in to be a Fangirl of the Day.
