    Brian's Blog of the Day:

    Fan the Fire of Fandom


    you might have a spark.
    but you need a flame.

    and once you have a flame,
    you need a fire.

    in fact, you need a raging fucking inferno.

    you need to burst into flames and create the most fantastic of fans.
    that's how you create true, sustainable longevity.

    it's done by your fans and through your fans.
    your most passionate fans are the key to your success.

    are you fanning the fire of fandom?
