Hello!

Welcome to the Whatisabrony Blog. This is our introductory post to test things out and make sure the system is fully operational!

It is our hope that this blog will someday become a helpful pony news outlet and brony content aggregator. Be sure to check out the main site here for more information about WIAB or the fandom in general.

For now, the goal isn’t to post every single pony-related news piece we can find. Instead, we will focus on relatively original content that the other big sites may not be talking about. This may change in the future though; the sky’s the limit!

Be sure to follow us on Twitter! We’ll tweet out every time there’s a new post or other significant update.

Stay tuned for pony news and media!
