The first major update to pass along is the birthing of a new site. A site that revels in our inner GEEK.
C’mon, we’re all geeks with at least one of our personal interests. One hobby, or past time, we devote a great deal of passion and interest towards.
Some of us are bookworms. Others are into gaming. Some salivate at the annual offering electronics shows prepare. Others make sure to catch all the films at the local art cinema.
Together, we are geeks. Together, we are legion.
Back when I was producing Up a Creek (my first webcomic), I’d e-mail the strips out three times a week. While composing the e-mails, I’d throw in a section appropriately named “Other Stuff/Geek News”. I would bring stuff to people’s attention.
What kind of stuff?
Upcoming movies. Comicbook storyarcs. Video game release dates. TV series worth checking out. Etc etc.
A lot of the readers actually appreciated that section and it would spark discussions. When you’re a pretty big geek, like moi, it’s easy to burst out with a million tidbits of possible discussion fodder. In my first two years with Scroozle’s Sanctuary, I would blog about whatever geeky things I felt like (in fact, I pretty much blogged about whatever I felt like). In the 3rd and 4th years, I decided to be more focussed, so I excised the geeky stuff.
And felt dead inside.
So here we are. With a new website, all ready to go.
This time around, I’m not alone. That’s right. We’re a team of geeks. A geek ARMY.
Some of my good friends will contribute to the site. Whenever we see, or think of anything worth sharing, we’ll write a piece for it. It might be deep and insightful. It may be short and irreverent. There should be something for every geek, and if there isn’t, why don’t you submit your services as a writer?
It’s called The Geek Roundup. So, make like Sonic and get over there. Pronto.
