Fandom Life – When It All Started

This post, wasn’t really my idea so much. Emilia (one of my co-mods on the TDS forum, and who runs Kaos Online), started a thread on our lovely forum that we have, asking when and how people became a fan. So then my co-tweeter (and other co-mod) Gemma, asked the same question. The responses? WERE AWESOME. I loved it. The tweets kept on coming. Everyone loved sharing their story. It was beautiful. Because as Sara (from What Happens On The Backstreet) pointed out, fandom is our common thread. it’s what binds us together. Think of how the force flows through Jedis, only like…the music version through a group a fans who may not have anything in common. So I gathered the tweets and I’ll likely edit this to add the posts from the thread itself.

These are the whens, and the hows…of how many people got Hooked On Backstreet.





So how did you become a BSB fan? When did it happen? Comment below!
