Hello and welcome to The Woolie Weekly, a blog all about Britain’s most rural, most underrated TV soap Emmerdale. Maybe you’ve stumbled your way to this blog accidentally after a Google search gone awry or maybe your passion for Emmerdale has meant you discovered this blog all by yourself. Good news – you’re in the right place! At The Woolie Weekly I’m going to bring you a weekly look at all the goings on in the Yorkshire village of Emmerdale. I don’t claim to be any sort of Emmerdale egghead but I am here to spread my love for the show’s comedy, drama and heart.
Every Sunday you’ll find new content which looks back on the week just gone. I’ll be posting quotes, GIFs, favourite moments, the Fave or Fail plots of the week as well as other features. If you have any suggestions for things you’d like to see on the blog you can always leave me a comment, tweet me or message me on tumblr.
I’m a 30-something TV and internet addict who procrastinates too much. I’m a soap lover and a huge fan of Emmerdale. I also love Parks and Rec, Star Wars and terribly made true crime documentaries. I was also responsible for the Emmerdale vs Friends video which amazingly became a bit of a viral hit (even actual Emmerdale tweeted about it).
