10 Geeky Things I’m Thankful For

10 Geeky Things That I'm Thankful For!

I was completely stumped on what to do for this month’s 10 things. I have some ideas I’m working on for future 10 things, but wanted to reach out and see what you guys, my readers, wanted to know about me. I popped an open request up on my facebook page and got some great suggestions including this one from Alicia of EightBitBlonde to do a geeky post that ties in with Thanksgiving. As a Brit I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, however, I have a lot of US readers so in the spirit of celebrating Thanksgiving this months 10 Things is dedicated to 10 Geeky thinks that I’m Thankful for.

I previously wrote about 5 fandoms I’m thankful for in a 5 Fandom Friday prompt so this time I’m doing things a little bit differently. I’m going to talk about 10 geeky things in a more abstract way – keep reading to find out what I mean!

10 Geeky Things I'm Thankful for - World Building

World Building

One of the greatest things that everything geeky has given to me is world building. As a young girl I started with stories created from my imagination, stories fuelled from worlds and characters I read in books. As a teenager  exploring the internet for the first time I stumbled upon the world of role playing and from there my interest in world building grew even further. Every tv show, movie, book and video game is set in it’s own universe that has been created by people. A world built from imagination and the possibilities are endless and it’s given us films like Star Wars, to the cheese-fests like Sharknado. There’s so many elements to it too and I started off with this one because I touch on more of them in other sections of this post.

10 Geeky Things I'm Thankful for - Escapism

Escapism

[bctt tweet=” I could lose myself in the endless words and worlds of books, and it helped me to stay strong, to work through what was happening in the real world. ” username=”justgeekingby”]

The geek world isn’t just about escapism to me, I want to make that clear first, but it certainly is part of it’s charm. Growing up I was bullied a lot and the geeky world gave me a way to escape my tormentors, as well as helping me find myself. I could lose myself in the endless words and worlds of books, and it helped me to stay strong, to work through what was happening in the real world. As I got older and new problems replaced the bullying my geeky interests and pursuits continued to be there for me to offer solace when I needed to relax and remind myself that my every day life isn’t just filled with pain.

10 Geeky Things I'm Thankful for - Identity & Belonging

Identity & Belonging

A little while ago Hannah of A London Geek wrote about being a Fangirl and not being ashamed, it’s a great post that you should all check out and Hannah really hits the nail on the head with what it feels like to be embrace your geek community. I don’t remember when exactly I realised I was a geek; I was always different, I never fit in and I was instinctively attracted to geeky things. As I got older I embraced the term geek (or nerd, personally I’ve always preferred the term geek for some reason although I accept either!) and it was an important part of piecing together my own identity. I suddenly wasn’t just a weirdo, the odd one out, I was a part of a group of people who saw the world differently and shared my passions.

10 Geeky Things I'm Thankful for - The Games That Define Us Blog Collaboration

 

A few days ago my post as a part of The Games that Define Us collaboration went live and in it I talk about how I became a gamer. It was a very cathartic post, and until I put my story down on paper I hadn’t even realised just how much that one game had effected my life, and that is just one element of my geeky world. Every part of my geeky interests and pursuits from this blog, to the games I play and the books I adore are what make me who I am.

10 Geeky Things I'm Thankful for - Friendly Communities

Friendly Communities

The geek community isn’t all sunshine and rainbows – just ask any geeky woman – which is why this section is specifically called ‘friendly’ communities. I have been in many communities over the years that have I thought were friendly and I later realised in hindsight were toxic, however, I’m not going to dwell on those as this is about what I’m thankful for and not losing myself in the past. I make a point of mentioning them because I think it’s important to recognise the toxicity that does exist in the geek community rather than pushing it under the carpet – and in doing so it makes me even more grateful for the friendly communities I have now found and the friendships that have grown from them.

You may have heard or even used the term ‘geeking out’ before, and for me being a geek is a community thing. While I can entertain myself with my own thoughts and theories about a plot or character, at the end of the day I get the most joy from being able to talk about it with someone. My relationship with my fiancé Chris is filled with geeky moments. We are a couple that games and geeks out together, and I love that. I love that we have a room in our house dedicated to geeky things and that we agreed to decorate in a geeky way. I love seeing a tweet on twitter from a friend as they discover my favourite book or show for the first time, and their excitement as they enter that new world of wonder and magic. And I love the endless creativity and adventures of my fellow geek bloggers.

Being a geek is 100 times more fun with friends.

10 Geeky Things I'm Thankful for - Collectables

Collectables

I’ve always been a collector; keyrings, badges, postcards. I still have them from when I was a kid.  The internet has brought many wonders including online shopping and that’s just made it even easier to access geeky items, especially now there’s subscription boxes like Lootcrate and Geek Box. There are now so many things to collect and sites like etsy and redbubble, just to name a few, mean that we can also buy things created by other fans. Art and items created with the love, joy and attention to detail that comes from someone who feels the same way you do about a fandom. It doesn’t matter how old or obscure a fandom is there is something out there for everyone or there will be. Just the other day one of my favourite authors, Tamora Pierce, announced the first official line of merchandise for her books despite her writing for decades.

10 Geeky Things I'm Thankful for - Geeky Fashion

Geeky Fashion

You may have noticed that I love geeky fashion 😉 I’ve never been a big fashion person, style has never been top of my list and I tend to rock my own unique style that is a hybrid of geeky, boho, rock and a bit of goth thrown in. I’m very much a jeans and t-shirt girl so I love accessories to add some flare to my outfits. So it’s always been really important to me to have geeky fashion items that help me show my identify, my style to the world. I rarely like or care for the current trends – I’m the type of girl who walks into a woman’s fashion store, takes a look around at the ghastly ‘in season’ colours and walks right back out the door. However, I am a Libra and that means I do like to look good. Growing up in the 90s and 00s there wasn’t much geeky fashion at all; you could order from Hot Topic in the US but the prices were high and you had to deal with shipping prices. That was  all we had back then. So what I am incredibly grateful for now is the wider range of online stores catering to women’s geeky fashion.

10 Geeky Things I'm Thankful for - Spin Offs

Spin Offs

Oh no, she said the evil ‘spin off’ term! Don’t panic; hear me out. Spin offs, adaptations, accompanying material, whatever you want to call it. I’m not just talking about TV shows that spin off from an original show or books being adapted into movies; I’m also referring to book and comics that are written in the same universe as a movie or a game. My favourite and most beloved example being the Star Wars Expanded Universe (now referred to as Legends since the Disney canon reboot). I am the sort of fan that literally gobbles everything I can get my hands on. I don’t care if the movie is dodgy, or if the book is badly written. If there is one then I want to see it/read it. I still watch/read stand-alone movies and books but things that are part of a series and a much wider universe are so much more special to me. I think that is what appeals to me about the Star Wars EU, the Warcraft Universe and DC Comics Universe; there are so many characters and stories to be told. It’s why I was sad to see the Star Wars reboot happen, and also excited for the new canon because to me it’s just more stories that get to be told.

10 Geeky Things I'm Thankful for - Fansites

Fansites

As I touched upon in world building every universe of a fandom has so many aspects and this has led to the creation of various virtual fan creations since the creation of the internet. Everyone has their favourite ways of consuming this content and one of those ways for me is fansites. There are so many different formats that a fan can show their love for a subject; news site, guides, shrines, cliques, fanlistings, website listing, online rpg, and more. I’ve been involved or ran my own versions of several of those over the years and I know the joy that it brings to be a part of that larger community online. I also love seeing the way in which people express themselves and their love for the subject and/or the community through their site.

10 Geeky Things I'm Thankful for - Fanart

Fan Art

Fan art is the other big way I consume fan creations online whether it be digital art or traditional, and I am just so grateful that there are so many talented individuals out there that take the time to create such gorgeous work and share it with the world. I know there are some artists who have been treated badly and no longer share their work, and that breaks my heart but I can understand why they feel that way. I’ve always felt a special connection to art, always been drawn to it and to see someone capture the emotions of a character, relationship or scene accurately has always been very moving to me.

This wonderful piece of art was commissioned by Chris, my fiancé, from our wonderful friend and talented artist Jen Pattison. You can read my interview with Jen right here!

 

10 Geeky Things I'm Thankful for - Inspiration

Inspiration

The one theme that I think ties all these points together for me is this one; inspiration. It isn’t just from the geeky world, or what it represents, it’s how it inspires me and others to be ourselves and to grow as people. As I was writing this I realised that I was representing just one type of geek; a fandom geek, a fan girl. I’m a bookworm, a Star Wars nerd, a comic book geek. But that’s not the only type of geek out there and that is amazing. The geeky world inspires people to be different, to be who they really are and to reach for the unknown. It can be what inspires them to go into careers in tech or science, to educate and support the next generation, or to share their passions by creating new worlds and universes for people to enjoy and explore.

[bctt tweet=”The geeky world inspires people to be different, to be who they really are & to reach for the unknown. It can be what inspires them to go into careers in tech or science, to educate and support the next generation.” username=”justgeekingby”]

Being a geek is amazing and inspirational, and I am thankful for it teaching me that anything is possible.

 

Over to You

I hope that this gave you a bit more of an insight into me and what being a geek and the geeky world means to me. What about you? Is there an identity or community that you’re thankful for?

[bctt tweet=”Being a geek is amazing and inspirational, and I am thankful for it teaching me that anything is possible.” username=”justgeekingby”]

Is it the geeky world or something else?

If you’re a fellow geek did anything in this entry strike a chord? Do you have any insights of your own to add?

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Let me know in the comments and if you’re in the US I hope you’re having a wonderful Thanksgiving! Got a suggestion for another 10 Things? Pop it in the comments too 🙂

 

Introducing the Unique Bloggers Group!

Introducting the Unique Bloggers Group!

For the last few months I’ve been working on a unique side project alongside this blog and finally I can reveal to you all exactly what that project is!

The Unique Bloggers Group

Unique Bloggers is a promotion and support group on facebook for the smaller blog niches out there. By small niches we’re talking about blogs that often get overlooked in most blog groups and a few examples are; geek blogs, craft blogs, alternative fashion blogs, or a mixture of all of those. Perhaps your blog fits in several different niches, or is even niche-less. If this sounds like your blog then this is the group for you! We’re here to help you grow, network, gain readers and followers for your blog and social media accounts, and pretty much anything else you need. We hope you’ll also pick up some great friends along the way too!

 

The idea for this came from me posting another geeky post in a blog promotion group and failing to get any engagement on it. I then watched someone with an alternative fashion post have the same issue. I realised that it wasn’t just geek bloggers that had the problem. I’m in two great geek blog groups, however, the network of bloggers is small and only one offers promotion topics. What if there was a group that united all the small niches and offered them a place to network and grow together?

I still wasn’t sure. I’m the sort of person that has these random ideas and they splutter out, becoming nothing. So I decided to pitch it to one of the geek groups and wowzers! I was not expecting the response I got! It took me a few more months with health and holidays to get everything today and a few more hurdles to clear before today we were finally ready to open.

It’s a big deal for me because in the three years since I developed symptoms and then was diagnosed with ME I’ve pulled away from the online world. I’ve lurked in a few groups, but I closed a lot of websites and projects as I couldn’t maintain them and it really put a damper on my confidence. This is a huge undertaking for me personally and maybe it will flop – but at least I know I went for it.

 

Some more information

It was important to me that the group didn’t become overwhelmed with the type of blogs that were causing the problem in the first place. For this reason the does not accept the promotion of blogs that fit into the bigger niches (i.e. parenting, travel, beauty, food, lifestyle, and so on). Don’t worry if your blog does touch upon some of those topics, we’re not going to crack the whip and toss anyone out for even mentioning them – life comes in all flavours and we recognise this. But if your blog is purely dedicated to those niches then this isn’t the group for you.

 

The weekly promotion schedule is as follows:

Mondays – Blog Post
Tuesdays – Facebook
Wednesdays – Twitter
Thursdays – Blog Post
Fridays – Instagram
Saturdays – Pinterest
Sundays – Other Requests

 

And finally we have a pinterest board for members to share their blog posts to!

 

Interested in joining?

Just head on over to the group! I look forward to getting to know you and hearing more about your blog 🙂

Guest Posts Wanted!

Guest Posts

As I get back into the swing of things and get September’s posts scheduled I’d like to also get some guests posts happening for September and the next following months, including the run up to Christmas. So I’ve had a little bit of a brainstorm and here are some ideas for content that I’d like to see on the blog but I don’t really have time to implement myself.

 

About Guest Posting

A guest post is as simple as it sounds; you write a post as a guest for someone else’s blog. You don’t necessarily need to have an active blog of your own so it’s great for someone who wants to give blogging a try, doesn’t have time to maintain a full time blog or is currently on hiatus from their own blog and wants to keep their skills sharp. For active bloggers it’s a fantastic chance to network and help grown your audience as it gives a different audience a sneak peek into your world and leaves a trail of bread crumbs back to your own blog.

Each blogger will have their own requirements for guest blogging so be sure to check those for each blog. Here at Just Geeking By I’m quite lenient; the floor is open to anyone who might be interested. I’m open to ideas, however, keep in mind that your post needs to be something my audience will be interested in. So if you’re a travel blogger, for example, this isn’t the best blog for you. The most important part of this process for me is being open with one another and discussing your idea. I will also need to have the final say on whatever you plan to post.

 

Ideas List

Here are a few ideas I had. If you have an idea that spins off from any of these then feel free to run it by me! Also, guys please don’t be put off by the girlie banner or the fact that my posts are usually female oriented. I’d love to see some male geek oriented content! I just simply do not have the time and energy to devote to everything.

  • Casual Cosplay Ideas
  • Cosplay related posts
  • Geeky Make Up Ideas
  • Geeky Make Up Products
  • Female Geeky Fashion related posts
  • Male Geeky Fashion related posts
  • New Video Games due out this Christmas
  • Pagan Fashion
  • Pagan Gift Guides
  • Geeky Subscription Box Gift Guide
  • Featuring Art/Fan Art (Artists permission must be retrieved first)
  • Animal/Pet Related
  • Disabilities in Books / Films / Tv Shows / Video Games
  • Playing Video Games with Physical or Mental Health Conditions

Interested?

Do any of those ideas tickle your fancy? Or maybe one of them has got a different idea planted in your head? If so there are two ways to contact me about guest posting here at Just Geeking By. You can do so by commenting on this post or if you prefer to do so privately there is a form here.

I look forward to hearing from you! 🙂

9 Facebook Groups To Promote Your Blog!

Blog Promo Links - Facebook Groups

There are many ways to promote your blog online and I’ve noticed that not every blogger realises that wide variety of options available to them. That is something I want to change, and I also want to help show bloggers that there are some fun ways out there too! Most of you will be familiar with the idea of repeatedly commenting on blogs, posting on social media or taking part in Facebook group threads. There are some much less tedious ways to promote your blog, and even create new content while you do it!

So once a month (well, this month you’re technically getting two because I just missed out on getting this up for June!) I’m going to be sharing a bunch of Blog Promo Links. I’ll be including a variety of sources and genres, so sometimes there will be themed posts like ‘beauty blogs’ or ‘craft blogs’ or like today’s it will be a certain type i.e. facebook group, link-ups, tags. I’ll put a little explanation of how each one works as well so if you’ve never heard of it you’ll be able to get a gist of how it works. I’ll also be taking requests so feel free to leave me a comment if you want me to track something down for you 🙂

 

Pinterest Boards

I’ve also set up two group pinterest boards for Blog Links;

  • Blog Promo Links – Basically the same links I’ll be sharing with you, anything where you can actively promote your blog.
  • Blog Promotion Guides – A board for sharing any guides about promoting your blog, especially on certain sites and social media networks.

You can gain access to either of these by e-mailing me at blog@ruby-wings.net and you can follow them by clicking the follow buttons below!
 

 

Facebook Groups

To start us off I’ve literally raided my own selection of facebook groups to give you an idea of the type of variety that is available. So these do include some that fit my personal niches i.e. geek, British, as well as general blogger related groups.

8 Artists I Want To Commission

Sharing Saturday - Artists I want to commission

I would love to commission a million different artists for work, but sadly it’s not in my budget just now. So this is a list of awesome artists that accept commissions, and hopefully one day I can request one from them! As usual all copyright and credit goes to these wonderfully talented artists. Please do check out their Patreons and follow them on social media if you like there work.

I also have a pinterest board where I’ll be adding any new artists to, so feel free to follow along to find new and amazing artists!

 Noxychu

I first came across Noxychu from her work on Wowhead/ZAM and fell in love with her unique and colourful style. Here’s some of my favourites.

 Straya Obscura

I think another artist on this list shared Straya’s work at some point and it is so utterly unique that I KNEW that one day I would have to commission something from her. What, I have no idea because as you can see from these examples the scope of her skill is massive.
