[WIAB Update] Weekly Episode Posts Going on Pause

Hey there. This is a quick update for any potential blog regulars.

As a brand-new brony blog we’re still trying to find our place in the fandom. One of the things we tried doing was provide weekly episode updates consisting of places to view new episodes followed by some thoughts on them.

We’re going to stop making these posts and focus more on standalone content like editorials, fun stuff, and news. It’s entirely possible we’ll return to weekly episode updates in the future though, but right now there are already so many other places that provide the same thing.

We welcome your feedback on Twitter or in the sidebar. Stay tuned!

Season 7: Episode 14 – Fame and Misfortune – Viewing Guide

Season 7 of My Little Pony is upon us! Last week’s episodes were viewed many weeks early thanks to our friends in Australia so many would consider THIS to be the first new episode of the mid-season premiere. We won’t go too heavy with spoilers but ponies arguing is always a fun premise because we get to witness their hilarious antics with full knowledge that they’ll all be friends again by the end.

This episode happens to be airing during the largest brony meetup in the world; BronyCon! Let’s hope those of us there right now can find a way to view it.

More information + places to watch the episode below!

This could very well end up being the biggest episode of the season regardless of the airdate confusion though!

Let’s take a look at the fandom’s thoughts below!
