Happy Birthday Fanlistings

The Fanlistings turns 5 this June and I’m happy to be part of the obsession.

Like the name suggests, Fanlistings are sites where fans can unite about a particular subject: actors, movies, music, the list (pardon is the pun) is endless. Pia and I are part of the madness with our fanlisting collective, Too-Manic (aptly named!) which now has 120+ fanlistings in two or so years. Our first fanlistings were for Tolkien Illustrator, John Howe and children’s author, Enid Blyton.

The general content of a fanlisting is the information about the subject, a join page, buttons for people to display on their site, though a growing number of fanlistings have turned into shrines.
