One of the best parts about running this blog is having the ability to meet some really cool people, and some of the coolest people that I have met have led me to really cool blogs. I’ve said it before, no one’s blog is 100% original but everyone’s voices are different so there are blogs that I love to read because I love the writer, and I love the passion that they show for what they are writing. They are fun and interesting to read and they inspire me to get better and better in my blog.
So I decided to do a feature (inspired by Megan at the Nerdy Girlie’s Geek Girls Gab), where I profile the bloggers that I love. Not only do I get to find out more about them, but I also get to share them with you guys! Most of the bloggers that I follow are like me, nerd girls, fan girls and they enjoy the same things as me, and you! Every blogger that I profile is one that is super important to me and I urge you to check them out!
If you are interested in being featured on the Blogger Spotlight, feel free to contact me, please! I would love to hear from you, to feature you on the blog and to help spread the word about it!

Today’s blogger is Sylvia from FanGirlFeeels
Her Page on iFandoms Collide
Sara: Tell me a Little Bit About Yourself:
Sylvia: Hey guys, My name is Sylvia, I am 22 years old living in Los Angeles California. I write a blog called FangirlFeeels, I love YA books, weird Indy Folk music, I have a huge love for art and I want to travel the world. I have always loved reading books But I just recently came out of the “Fangirl Closet”.. As I like to call it. Reading books was not the cool thing to do when I was growing up so I hid my obsession until my Junior Year of High School, when one of my classmates was reading Twilight. Then she introduced me to the Fangirl World (AKA The INTERNET) and now I’m Here!
Sara: Tell me about your blog:
Sylvia: FangirlFeeels Keeps up with all Fandom News and updates, Posts “Follow me Around” Event Vlogs & Book Reviews
Its a great site to make friends and have on going discussions about book theories and such. FangirlFeeels is a never ending Book Club.

Sara: What inspired you to start your blog?
Sylvia: I had just finished reading Delirium by Lauren Oliver and all these questions were racing through my head. No one I knew had read the book, so I went on the internet and looked at every book review on Youtube. I then I realized that I could be doing the exact same thing! I wanted to connect with these people and talk about books and fangirl on the internet! As I said before, Growing up, reading was not the cool thing to do so a lot of my friends do not read & don’t understand my constant obsession with these characters.I wanted a place to talk about books and everything associated with them with other readers who understood me. I was chatting with a couple of Fangirls a few months ago we were talking about starting up a blog thinking about names and stuff, I was jokingly spitting out names like “Feels.com”. It wasn’t until a few weeks after when I was starting my own Blog that I came up with FangirlFeeels.com.
Sara: What is your favorite nerd memory?
Sylvia: There has been so many its so difficult to choose… but ill just talk about the one that started it all!
I Have been obsessed with The Hunger Games for quite sometime and I lent my copies to Tatiana (City of Shadowhunters) she fell in love with it right away. We signed up for The HOB on FB to be one of 400 fans to camp out for the Premiere of The Hunger Games movie! We got the email that said we were chosen to attend. The day before we were on the official The Hob Facebook talking to other campers.
We all met in the Starbucks at LA Live and I instantly felt at home! That first night we Camped out on the streets of Downtown LA. These 22 Fans became my family for the next 3 days. We slept on the ice cold cement, Talked about everything THG, Met the Cast, and saw the movie together! We are still really close, Paulina (I Am Divergent) has become one of my closest friends. This event brought so many people together.
In fact, my friends Taylor and Fernando met at the premiere and are now married and having a baby! It was the Ultimate Fangirl Weekend & it brought me into this whole new life I never knew I was missing.
Sara: What are you most looking forward to, as far as new books/movies/etc?
Sylvia: TMI:City of Bones Movie!!!
TMI:City of Heavenly Fire!!!!
