Love television? Then tvfanatic.blog might be the blog for you. Blogger Amy is obsessed with television, so she started tvfanatic.blog to share reviews, ratings, and more with like-minded tele-philes.
On her blog, Amy covers both old and new shows, so whatever your favorite boxset might be, she’s probably covered it. Tvfanatic.blog also encourages reader participation, with the comments open for discussion and critiques from all TV fans.
What is the blog about, who does it target, what need does it meet?
Tvfanatic.blog is aimed at anyone who loves TV – from die-hard fans to evening binge-watchers to casual viewers. Though Amy is a self-proclaimed television obsessive, you don’t have to match her level of fandom to love her blog.
In each of her series and episode reviews, Amy looks at the pros and cons of a show and concludes with whether she’s ‘in” or “out’. New series reviews begin with the show trailer and follow a standard template for each post which means readers know exactly what to expect.
And all of Amy’s reviews are spoiler-free to avoid ruining the experience for those who’ve not yet watched. When she does share information around plot points, a big red warning will let you know before you get to it, so you can skip ahead to the next spoiler-free section.
What makes it special?
Amy’s blog is super easy to navigate. On the sidebar, you’ll find a list of all the shows and series that she’s reviewed in alphabetical order.
Some of the top blog categories include ‘TV Performance of the Week’ and ‘TV Ship of the Week,’ where Amy shares her opinions on what she’s watching right now and the elements of the show that she’s most excited about.
Amy says she watches TV like it’s a full-time job, and Tvfanatic.blog shows us how blogs that come from an authentic love of a subject can easily draw in other fans that recognize the genuine passion behind the writing.
