We’re barely a week old, Watchers, and what a week it’s been! Thank you to each and every one of you who has joined the site and made this an exciting time. It’s been wonderful to see the site embraced by familiar members of the Game of Thrones fan community and by new people too.
We’ve had our technical hiccups here and there, and we appreciate everyone’s patience as we sort issues out. The site is still in progress in some areas, and so your suggestions are just as valuable as ever. We’ll provide a more thorough update on the technical aspects in a few days, after we’ve taken care of a few more things we’ve got our eye on. Keep the feedback coming!
Now, onto the fun news. We’ve been looking to expand the WotW team, and will continue to do so over the next couple months. Tonight, we’re introducing two new writers who’ll be contributing to Watchers On The Wall: Shylah and Cian.
Shylah is a fan who took the path of falling in love with Game of Thrones first, and ASOIAF later. She has a wealth of experience when it comes to covering news from the fan point-of-view and is always hungry for fresh info, analysis and theories.
You can find Shylah on Twitter, sharing her enthusiasm for many fandoms.
Cian, our next new contributor, will be familiar to many of you from his work at HBO Watch, where his passion has always been Game of Thrones. A native of Ireland, Cian’s been a fan of the books and the show since the first season. When it comes to Westerosi loyalties, he’s a sworn supporter of The Mannis, doubly so now that he’s on the Wall amongst us Watchers.
Cian will be bringing you scoops and reporting breaking news for WotW. Check him out on Twitter.
Since we’re talking contributors, we can confirm for you as well: Bex is now a full-time Watcher, and no longer writing for any other Game of Thrones websites.
We’re very excited for the coming weeks. We have some things in the works, involving you the readers, and you’ll hear more about that shortly, possibly as soon as tomorrow.
Thank you again, and help us welcome our new Watchers, Shylah and Cian, into the fold!
