My origin story

I’ve wanted to start a blog for a long time. I think what scared me away the most was that there are already so many blogs out there… why waste my time adding mine to the mix? Well here we are.

This blog is the product of nearly a decade of knowledge that I’ve continuously tucked away because I didn’t know what to do with it. Let me set the scene:

It’s 2014. I’m a sophomore at Western Carolina University. I’m settled in bed, lofted high (which I later de-lofted because I hated climbing a mini mountain to get into bed), and preparing to watch a new video that my favorite YouTuber at the time, PieGuyRulz, had posted. YouTube had recommended his channel to me, luring me in with his series “Every Episode of SpongeBob SquarePants Reviewed”. They were in depth, critical, and over 2 hours long. I was hooked.

I didn’t realize then how much that experience would influence my life. PieGuyRulz took one of my favorite childhood cartoons and dissected it in a way that only an adult could. From that moment on, they way I consumed media changed. I found myself rewatching old comfort shows (which will absolutely be covered in this blog) in a brand new light.

Shortly after I got into watching television and movie reviews on YouTube, I migrated to written content, coming across what has easily become the website I’ve visited the most: TV Tropes.

One of my favorite pastimes consist of me reading (and eventually contributing to) countless pages of trivia and tropes while watching a tv show or movie. And of course, if you’re not also scrolling through IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes too, are you even legit?

Needless to say, after many years of absorbing this type of content and needing a place to put all of my thoughts, Kiara Reviews was born.

Welcome aboard.
