Fangirl of the Month

Little ol' me? Aw, you shouldn't have! Panels On Pages has named yours truly FANGIRL OF THE MONTH for December!

It's like winning an Oscar for being a geek...or something. Anyway, I'm truly honored to have been chosen. And I've got great company! Check out the previous Fangirls of the Month on PoP.

Here's just a sampling of my interview with them:
PoP!: You’re writing all over the web these days between your blog, CBR and GEN. What made you move from mere spectator geeking to the real deal?

Jill: You’re right, I feel like a writing machine at times, haha! But I love it. At school I created what was called a contract major for myself. Under the general umbrella of Contemporary Arts I got to pick and choose which aspects of communications I wanted to study. My main focus was on television so I took several different voice and on-camera classes as well as production, but I also leaned toward journalism and other forms of writing like TV, radio and film. I didn’t think I had interest in straight-up news writing but it turned out I was pretty good at it and I took a few more of those courses just for fun. Right after graduation I landed a job in radio and writing basically fell by the wayside. I felt like I needed to get back into practice so I started my blog, “Has Boobs, Reads Comics.” I have a lot of fun on there, but when I would go to conventions or other events I decided why not do formal reports on them? Now that I’m writing for other sites and doing some video work I feel like all of my schooling is finally coming together and it feels great. Now if I could make it onto G4 my life would be complete.

PoP!: What costume do you plan to tackle next?

Jill: I’ve got so many costumes I want to do, the only question is which to pick next. I think the Red Lantern costume is going to be hard to top but I’d like to try one of the other Corps as well, maybe Blue or Orange. I also have the idea to cosplay two other redheads once my hair is a little longer. One is Misfit from the Birds of Prey and the other is Cyclone from the Justice Society. Their costumes are both really cute and relatively easy to pull off, which would be a relief for me, haha. One day, probably a while from now, I want to attempt a major Batgirl costume. I’d have to have that made for me though because it’s going to involve my scooter. I plan on making it into her Bat-cycle.
So what are you waiting for? Go read the rest of the interview and say hello to everyone at PoP for me. And listen for me tonight at 10 EST on their podcast!

Not only am I willing to give you every month of the year but I'm going to go so far as to say that you should be voted for Fangirl of the Decade. 2010 through 2020 are yours, girl!!
