I can't say for sure when my love for fanlistings exactly began, but it has to be some time around 2001 or 2002. I can't even remember how it was that I came across my first fanlisting, but I do remember joining some and keeping them in mind in case I ever built a website of my own.
Years passed, and 2006 saw the rebirth of my love for fanlistings in general. I began to surf around the site, joining several lists in different categories and putting all the codes in my LiveJournal account user info. Until it got so big, of course, I had to create a special post for them. And then another. And another. And so on. :)
The idea of creating my own fanlisting was never too far from my mind, but as I grew busier I kept pushing the thought aside, telling myself I didn't have the time to do it, that I wouldn't know how... until I finally made up my mind in January 2011.
Problems abounded, of course. How to make sense of the scripts recommended by fanlisting owners? Where to host my site? After many ups and downs with several scripts as well as a few hosting nightmares, Rhapsody Girl from Rainbow Curls came to my rescue, hosting my collective and putting up with all my questions regarding Enthusiast (which I slowly began to understand – and love!). So much love to her for her patience and her help.¡Gracias! :D
Why “Into A Dream”? The name was inspired by Nightwish's song “Dark Chest Of Wonders”.
What is a fanlisting, anyway? “A fanlisting is simply an online listing of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are) - they are just a place where you can have your name listed along with other fans of the same subject.” (Source TFL.org)
