Two and a Half Years of Comparative Geeks!

Merlin Relaxing

At this point I’ve made a tradition of celebrating the milestone every six months of Comparative Geeks! With the Geek Baby we’re now counting much shorter increments in time, like age in weeks, or hours between feedings (or hours we get to sleep!) so six more months suddenly feels like a really long time!

As part of this most recent six months, we had six weeks of guest posts, along with the Friday posts I wrote in advance. That was a lot of great content from some really great bloggers, so if you missed that, I collected them all here. We are still incredibly grateful for that, because without it, I would not be sitting here now saying that we’ve had a successful, continuing blog here on Comparative Geeks!

Seeing how much success we had, and how our life has changed for sure, we are continuing to operate with additional bloggers – now contributors in their own rights, and not just guest writers! And with that, there are now more Comparative Geeks!

Which means some of the basic conceit of the site – it being the two of us, a married couple able to talk through our post ideas on a daily basis – is just not the same anymore. There are more opinions. More fandoms. More experience to bring to the table. And that’s great!

It does mean that some high-level changes need to happen – like the First Time Here and About the Authors pages need an overhaul. There’s already an authors scroll in the sidebar on those pages – recent posts by all of the different Geeks!

I’m still slowly plugging away on a Geek 501 page, as well. In the mean time, I’ve also added a link to our whirlwind board game recommendations – our annual 12 Days of TableTop Day post. And the LitFlix… well, we’re working on it. It’s been hard to make it to movies this year, which makes us sad. It’s the number one getaway thing we have done without the Geek Baby – but we haven’t pulled off both going to see a movie together yet.

At some point we really need to recruit a babysitter!

I think we’re on a roll now, and I forsee we’ve definitely got the next six months in us. I fully expect that in January we’ll be talking about three years of Comparative Geeks! Where it goes from there? Time will tell. Like I said, I’m hoping I get a few more hours of sleep tonight… we’ll see about months of blogging!

Thank you for reading and commenting and liking this blog. It really means a lot to us. We started out with low goals, and have stayed small and consistent on purpose.
