Friending Meme!

tl;dr friending memes are a good way to make new friends, but also help develop creative relationships with people who will keep you focused on your Bandom Big Bang fanwork.

Important things to remember:

•You don't have to have a DW to participate - just comment anonymously.
•You don't have to be signed up as a fanwork creator to participate.
•The official BBB Tumblr ([ profile] bandombb) and Twitter ([ profile] bandombigbang) are only for announcements, but there is an inspirational Tumblr that you can contribute to at any time by joining the [ profile] bbb-network.
•If you are signed up as a fanwork creator, you can opt to be poked and prodded by mod email.

The mods' collective excitement about this year's Bandom Big Bang is mega-intense! We're definitely thrilled to see people returning to participate and equally as happy for all of the first timers as well.

One of the best ways to make sure you get to the finish line is to have a lot of support. Cheerleaders, productivity partners, and betas all help keep you focused on the finish line. And it might feel like it's a little early in the game to be recruiting minions friends, it really isn't.

So look at the people in your life, figure out who has the time to help you out. Who's gonna text you every few days to see how your fanwork's going? Who's gonna help you brainstorm your fanwork or do productivity sprints with you? Who's going to beta your fanwork?

Friending memes are a great way to meet new friends that share a fandom, but it's also a great place to offer your services as a minion, or to ask for people to volunteer to be a minion. So, here is one to get you started. (Full disclosure: we've adapted the friending meme from the [community profile] the_neverenders comm.)

My hope for BBB is: to write something people enjoy and that i'm proud of.
